Try to understand each other.

Try to understand each other.

I read this quote today, written by my favorite author, John Steinbeck, and I wanted to share it with you.

In every bit of honest writing in the world… there is a base theme. Try to understand men, if you understand each other you will be kind to each other. Knowing a man well never leads to hate and nearly always leads to love.

Two Felony Charges Dismissed!

Two Felony Charges Dismissed!

Today we are very happy to announce that Dayani Law Firm successfully negotiated the dismissal of three charges against Our Client. The State of Washington charged Our Client in Snohomish Superior Court with two felonies and a gross misdemeanor. The charges unsettled Our Client, they consumed their life, and made this year the hardest year of Our Client’s life.

A conviction of these charges would have potentially exposed Our Client to years of prison, loss of his family, and deportation.

Patronizing a Prostitute Charge Dismissed.

Patronizing a Prostitute Charge Dismissed.

We've been staying busy at Dayani Law Firm and wanted to share some recent successes. For the second month in a row, we successfully convinced Prosecutors to DISMISS two charges of Patronizing a Prostitute. For both clients, it served as a huge relief because neither clients had never ever been charged with a crime before.

In January, I was recognized in the NW Lawyer Magazine for my community service to the El Centro De La Raza Spanish Legal Clinic. The free bilingual (English/Spanish) clinic is offered monthly, typically helping 50–80 clients per clinic with the help of volunteer attorneys.

In 2017, I contributed over 20 hours of pro-bono representation at Centro de la Raza Clinic. I have consulted attendees with criminal defense issues, contract law, and some personal injury matters. In January, I led a “Know Your Rights” campaign at legal clinic (more details to come).
