Attorney Mark Werksman’s 29-year-old client was falsely accused of molesting two neighborhood children and was subsequently charged with felony child molestation, with a significant prison sentence hanging over his head should he be convicted. Instead, at the preliminary hearing, Mark Werksman was able to convince the court to grant his client a complete dismissal of any charges.
Mark Werksman, Werksman Jackson Hathaway & Quinn’s managing partner, has been rated for the 12th year in a row one of Los Angeles’s top-rated white collar crimes attorney by Super Lawyers.
A client of Alan Jackson, a commercial real estate owner with extensive holdings, was criminally charged by the Los Angeles City Attorney for multiple violations of city municipal codes based on a tenant medical marijuana dispensary’s alleged violations of city regulations. Based on a complaint filed by the City Attorney, Alan’s client faced more than a year in jail and tens of thousands of dollars in fines.
Alan and his team aggressively fought the charges, and following extensive legal and factual evaluation, exposed significant legal problems with the City Attorney’s case. After meeting with Alan and being presented with his arguments, the City Attorney dismissed all charges against his client. Proceedings terminated.
