Mark Satawa and Stuart Friedman of Kirsch & Satawa, PC, have won another sex crimes case for an extremely satisfied client, when a Macomb County Circuit Court Judge granted the Defense Motion for New trial following a Ginther hearing.
The Client (Daniel A.), was a upstanding member of the community, with no prior record of any kind – he had served honorably in the US Army, fought in Iraq, and had a sterling employment history. He was falsely convicted of two counts of CSC3, for allegedly sneaking into a bedroom at a party and sexually assaulting a woman who had passed out from drinking too much at the party. Dan A’s direct appeal was denied, and he was facing a lifetime on the sex offender’s registry after a lengthy prison term. The lawyer’s at Kirsch & Satawa filed a post conviction motion MCLA 770.2 and MCR 6.500, arguing that he should be given a new trial based on ineffective assistance of both trial and appellate counsel. After a three day Ginther hearing, where the Defense called seven witnesses (including a criminal attorney as an expert witness on the standards of care), the Judge reversed Dan A’s conviction, and ordered a new trial. A testimonial from a member of his family follows at the end of this posting.

Testimonial from past client:
It is my personal belief that Mark Satawa and Stuart Friedman are the absolute best at what they do. If they can’t obtain the desired result in terms of the legal relief you are hoping for, no one can. Both are completely dedicated to doing the best job possible for their clients. They take the time needed to ensure that they know everything about the case so that they can offer the best defense possible. They leave no stone unturned when preparing their cases. Every possible scenario and repercussion is taken into consideration when determining the best way to move forward. They don’t take “the easy way out” in an effort to simply be done with a case and collect their money. They are conscientious and truly care about the outcome. They realize it is not just another case they are responsible for…..it is, ultimately, a life. That is what sets these men apart from the rest. If you are faced with serious charges that have the potential to seriously impact the rest of your life, hiring one or both of these men is seriously your best possible option. You can have peace of mind in knowing that they will not be cutting corners and will give you the best, most educated defense possible. In a lot of cases today, that makes all the difference.
