Personal Injury Lawyers from the Casino Law Group score a victory in a highly contested Effingham criminal case. On March 21, 2011, personal injury lawyers from the Casino Law Firm earned a not guilty verdict in a criminal trial in Effingham County, Georgia, which involved allegations of police brutality.
In the State of Georgia vs. Bernard Wallace, the defendant was charged with one count of obstruction of justice, which accused him of resisting arrest. A police dash cam showed the defendant being struck in the face by an Effingham Deputy Sheriff. After a one day trial, the jury deliberated and returned a not guilty verdict after lawyers from the Casino Law Group argued the defendant's innocence.
Even though auto accident and personal injury claims are the Casino Law Group's current focus and specialties, personal injury lawyers from the firm are not opposed to assisting those who are in need of justice in other areas of the law.
