United States v. G.W.- Weapon on Pentagon - DISMISSED

June 2017

Client reports to work daily at the U.S. Pentagon and had once in the past brought a knife into the building inadvertently.  The second time this happened, Pentagon police arrested and charged him.  Obviously, this had a serious impact on his employment, and potentially, his security clearance and criminal record.   Fortunately, by using sharp negotiation skills and preparing a full mitigation package, and with the cooperation of a very motivated client, our lawyers were able to effect an eventual full dismissal of this charge, leaving the client with a clean record and no adverse employment consequences.
