- C.

“I was facing two felony charges as well as three separate charges when I decided to hire Pat & Trinity to represent me in court. During my trial, I was arrested for a separate charge.

After serving 12 months probation, all of my charges will be officially dropped! I am so fortunate to have found a great team who made this process go so smoothly. “
- C.

“Earlier this year I was charged with a DUI. The situation was stressful as anyone could imagine. A serious charge on my record, jail time, and license suspension was at stake. With Mr. McDonough and his teams experience and expertise throughout the process, I was able to avoid it all. My charge was reduced; I kept my license, did not receive points on my license, and did not serve additional jail time. With his hard work and knowledge, he was able to negotiate with the prosecutor with the odds stacked against me. I would highly recommend him if you are in need of legal assistance.”
- A.

The odds were stacked against my son after refusing a breathalyzer test, which normally results in an automatic one-year license suspension. He also failed all other tests administered to him at the time of his arrest. Despite this, Pat & Trinity were able to dissect the tests and use their expertise to lower the charges to reckless driving with no points, no license suspension, and no probation. He only had to do community service, take a class and pay fines. Needless to say, we were very pleased with the outcome and would use their services again without hesitation.
- G.

"Trinity represented me in court. She was able to wade through a mountain of information I gave her, and narrow the case down to the core issue and argued it beautifully. I won my case handily thanks to her excellent vision and ability to cut to the heart of the matter and not get caught up in "red herring" arguments (what the judge said about the opposing lawyer). I will definitely hire her again if the need arises."

"Trinity was a god-send! I thank her for her and Pat's strategic moves and patience throughout my case along the months. Specifically, Trinity's attention to detail and analysis of facts cannot be denied. She made sure my 10 counts were reduced to 2 counts with probation for a year and community service. Without her, I could have gone to jail. She's a very respectable attorney in this field and in this county and many should hire her! Trust me, she won’t disappoint."

"We hired Trinity to help us with a court case involving the Division of Family and Children Services. Obviously a very stressful situation for my entire family. My wife and I did an initial consultation with Trinity and knew immediately that we would hire her. She explored every aspect of our case and provided a clear explanation of our options. After reviewing each option with my wife and I, Trinity developed a concise strategy to move forward. Our decision to hire Trinity was further strengthened as we proceeded through the court process. We could not have done this on our own. Last week the court case was closed with the outcome we wanted. We are grateful for everything that Trinity has done for our family. I would highly recommend Trinity to anyone who finds themselves against the odds. She is the best!"

"I went through a very traumatic domestic situation and then was surprised to be faced with a highly complicated case involving my children. I knew what I was up against and knew I needed someone good. I met with Trinity and was immediately put at ease. In an extremely difficult and unusual position she knew how to speak with my children and make them feel comfortable, which was of the utmost importance to me. I realized right away I was in good hands so I hired her on the spot. She knows her stuff and is highly effective both in dealing with me and in the courtroom. She doesn't back down, will not be bullied and will fight for you and what is right. Due to the unique circumstances of my case I have had the need to hire Trinity on two separate occasions and have been extremely satisfied both times. What I appreciate most about Trinity is her accessablity. She answers all my questions and concerns in a very timely and thorough manner. She is always just an email or a phone call away.

"As a fellow attorney, I understand all too well that cheap attorneys are cheap for a reason. My divorce was highly contested and drug on for 2 years, and I obtained the best possible result because of Trinity Hundredmark and Andersen, Tate & Carr, P.C. Perhaps nothing is more important than your finances and how much time you get to spend with your children, and there is no better way to protect those things than by hiring an aggressive attorney like Trinity.”

Success Stories

Successes

A Traffic Stop Led To Serious Charges Until Client Retained Anderson, Tate, & Carr

Our client was stopped for a broken tail light, and his nervous reaction while interacting with the officer prompted the officer to request a search of the client’s vehicle. When the client refused, a drug dog was called in, and marijuana was found in the car.

The attorneys of Anderson, Tate, & Carr argued that the officer did not have reasonable suspicion of a crime that justified detaining our client beyond the tail light citation. Our client did not have a drug problem, and the prosecutor agreed to dismiss the marijuana charge. The arrest record was expunged and our client was able to avoid going to court for the charge, and was able to simply pay his citation online.

Client Receives Dismissal of all Eight Counts

Our client was facing eight counts, including simple assault, disorderly conduct, simple battery, criminal trespass to property and public intoxication. After conducting a through investigation, our criminal defense team was able to obtain a dismissal of all eight counts. Our client plead guilty to violating a local ordinance, which does not appear on his criminal history. He paid restitution and performed community service.

Client's Charges Reduced After Hiring Anderson, Tate & Carr

Our client was charged with 3 counts of hit and run and 3 counts of following too close. One of the hit and runs was against a moving school bus. After the incident, the client was found passed out on the floor of his house, but he was positively identified as the driver. He had 3 prior DUI convictions.

Our client hired another firm to represent him, and his first attorney reached an agreement to have him plead guilty to all counts and be declared a felony habitual violator and serve 90 days in jail.

Then our client found the attorneys at Andersen, Tate & Carr. Even after the deal had been struck, our criminal defense team was able to come in and show the prosecutor additional information on the client’s rehabilitative efforts. The state agreed to let him plead guilty to just 2 counts of hit and run, and one count of following too close. He avoided being a habitual violator, and the jail time was converted to house arrest, allowing him to continue working.

Proper Medical Diagnosis Helps Sister Drop Charges Against Brother

Our 32-year-old client agreed to watch his sister’s two young children while she and her mother flew out of town to attend their father’s funeral. Upon her arrival home, the sister discovered her house in disarray. An argument between our client and his sister ensued and quickly escalated. Our client allegedly grabbed his sister by the throat and threatened her. It was also alleged that he later picked up a golf club and threatened her life. He was arrested for simple battery under the Domestic Violence Act.

After meeting with the client, we discovered that he has been suffering from PTSD after being the victim of a vicious attack several years earlier. Additionally, there were other mental health issues that weren’t being properly addressed. We worked to get him evaluated, placed on proper medication, and started with a consistent therapy routine.

This plan of action resulted in his sister’s request that the case be dismissed. The State then agreed to dismiss the case and expunge his record.

All Charges Dismissed in Aggravated Assault Case

Our client was a retired police officer with over 20 years on the force. While working part time as a security guard at a local bank, he noticed a suspicious person trying to pass a check at the counter. The teller signaled that the patron was trying to pass a bad check, and our client approached and told the man that he would need to wait until the police arrived. The suspect made a run for it and our client stabbed him as he ran past, causing serious injuries.

The security guard was charged with aggravated assault, possession of a knife during a felony and engaging in private security without a license. He was facing 31 years in prison. After an extensive independent investigation, we learned that the suspect was a career criminal. Our criminal defense team lined up self-defense experts and filed an immunity motion claiming that our client had acted in self-defense. On the day of the motion, the DA dismissed all charges and our client was free to go home.
