    The Jury's Verdict: NOT GUILTY

    What if you were arrested for 3rd offense drunk driving and you weren't driving?  And what if they didn't believe you and they wanted you to plead guilty and go to sit in jail for several months for something you didn't do?  That's the situation our client was in when she came to Severson & Smead for help.  In a case like this one, there is nothing do to but prepare to fight the case at trial.  Fortunately, Attorney Preston Smead has extensive trial experience and a winning record of success.  On the day of trial, Attorney Smead attacked every shred of evidence that the State presented to try to prove our client was driving that night.  After deliberations the jury returned its verdict:              NOT GUILTY.

    Trial Victory

    Our client was accused of two serious criminal charges, including a felony charge for eluding a police officer in a vehicle, when he came to Severson & Smead for help. Our mission was simple: do everything possible to fight the case.  Because of careful preparation and planning, and extensive trial experience, Attorney Preston Smead was able attack the state's case on several fronts. He succeeded in persuading the Judge to throw out one of the charges without allowing the jury to even consider it.  For the remaining felony charge, after a short deliberation, the jury returned its verdict:  Not Guilty.

    Felony Charges Dismissed

    When our client came to us he was facing serious felony drunk driving charges and was very concerned.  At Severson & Smead, we fight for our clients every step of the way.  At an early stage in the proceedings, Attorney Preston Smead discovered a flaw and argued to the Judge that the case had to be dismissed because the state could not produce the proper evidence.  The Judge agreed and the charges were thrown out.

    REVIEWS

    They were very professional and I could actually tell they wanted to help me. There was no faking it and I could see that. They actually did there job and brought justice to my case. Would 100% recommend them to anyone I know. Smead was originally my attorney but when he wasn't available severson took his place. Smead was like an actual person that actually wanted the case to come to a fair ending to both party's. I respected that the most. Just being as real as they can and getting the job done. Completely satisfied with the outcome. Thank you so much Severson and Smead!

    Preston was my attorney for a substantial battery case that needed to go to trial.  Preston was an outstanding attorney.  He had knowledge that I needed for this trial to go in the direction that I wanted.  Without Preston I would have a felony on my record and a substantial battery and he was able to beat the felony at the trial and I got no jail time .  I can't thank Preston enough for the hard work and dedication that he put into my case for almost 8 months.  I would recommend him for any criminal cases that you need help with.
