I was arrested and charged with embezzling over 20K from my place of employment. I was facing prison time, massive fines and restitution penalties.  I reached out to Dennis and he assured me that he knew how to deal with the prosecutors for these types of cases.  Dennis ended up keeping me out of jail and we settled directly with my employer with only a misdemeanor charge. Thank you, Dennis.
