  • Elite Lawyer, 2018 - Present
  • Drug Crimes
    People v. SD Drugs and weapons charges dismissed against client after it was demonstrated that the arresting officers illegally entered the home of the client and conducted a search of the residence which resulted in the recovery of the items. The officers were seeking to arrest the client’s boyfriend on a traffic violation warrant. Prior to the case being presented to the Grand Jury, Mr. Watford was able to convince the prosecutor that the outstanding warrant needed to be a felony warrant in order to permit the police to forcibly enter the residence of a third party and that there were no exigent circumstances that justified the entry or search of the premises.

  • Domestic Violence
    People v. ES Client was arrested for allegedly calling and threatening his ex-girlfriend over the phone. After obtaining and reviewing the telephone records of the parties involved, Mr. Watford was able to prove that the client never called the complainant as alleged. Mr. Watford was able to convince the District Attorney’s Office to dismiss all charges. In a rare turn of events, the ex-girlfriend was arrested and charged with several felony offenses after she admitted to the Assistant District Attorney assigned to the case that she fabricated the allegations.

  • Sex Crimes
    People v. ED Client charged with forcible rape by ex-girlfriend. Mr. Watford was hired after client plead guilty to a felony and before he was sentenced to probation. Mr. Watford successfully argued to have plea vacated due to the fact that client was not advised that he would be deported based upon his guilty plea. Thereafter, Mr. Watford filed a motion to dismiss all charges for violating the client's right to a speedy trial which was granted after the complainant repeatedly failed to appear for trial.
