Results

Attorney can guarantee no results in any particular case because each case has its own unique characteristics. Just because Mr. Lauer might be able to get charges against one client dismissed, he may not be able to get another client’s charges dismissed for the same reasons. In no manner should this analysis of cases be interpreted as a promise, guarantee, or representation that a client will receive any particular result.
