Fall 2011 Update

Lawlor & Englert, LLC has had several recent victories for our clients. Most notable was an acquittal in a murder case. Last week, Michael Lawlor and Sicilia Englert represented a client Prince George’s County who was client charged with First Degree Murder and numerous related counts. After a three-day trial, the jury found the client not guilty of all changes. Mr. Lawlor and Gwen Waters also recently obtained an outright dismissal of all charges in an armed carjacking case.

In federal practice news, Mr. Lawlor and Andrew Szekely achieved a good outcome for a sentencing. In a fraud case involving over $70 million, the Government sought a sentence of almost 22 years. Through their advocacy, Mr. Lawlor and Mr. Szekely’s client received a sentence of under six years’ incarceration. In another case, Mr. Lawlor and Ms. Englert successfully argued that a client’s criminal record overstated the seriousness of his past actions. As a result, the judge imposed a sentence several years less than what the Government sought.

All attorneys at Lawlor & Englert, LLC also maintain an post conviction practice. Recently, Mr. Lawlor obtained a sentence reduction for a client from a life sentence to a sentence of forty years. In another case, Mr. Lawlor and Ms. Waters successfully litigated a state habeas corpus case and won the release of a client who was illegally detained past his release date. Ms. Englert recently won a hard-fought battle to have one of her clients released from jail in advance of his original release date and into a drug treatment program.
