  1. Another "Not Guilty" at jury trial for Long Beach criminal lawyer Matthew Kaestner. Attorney Kaestner's client was charged with 2 criminal threats after video taped evidence showed him making threats in a 7-11. The court also allowed the D.A. to introduce evidence of the client's prior conviction for criminal threats. Fully vindicating Kaestner's client, the Los Angeles jury returned two "Not Guilty" verdicts. A likely 12 year sentence was avoided. (People v. Michael W., Case No. BA455514.)
  2. Long Beach criminal lawyer Kaestner had a blistering 11 day run in Long Beach Court this recent summer of 2017. Kaestner achieved dismissal of 3 separate felony cases. After one private counsel advised client to take a “7 year deal,” attorney Kaestner was hired. 27 after replacing the prior attorney, attorney Kaestner proved his client’s innocence and the case robbery with a prior case was outright dismissed. P v. Gustavo P., Case No. NA105954.) Five days later, attorney Kaestner negotiated a misdemeanor, no time, resolution on a felony firearm charge. (P v. Oscar L., Case No. NA10674.) Six days later, client Juan H. walked free on a felony firearm charge after Kaestner persuaded a judge during a legal motion that the gun was legally possessed. P v. J.H., Case No. NA106318.)
  3. Other dismissals in 2017 include a felony narcotic case thrown out on illegal search and seizure (P v. Erica.A., Case No. BA446964) and an “infraction plea” on a felony manufacturing of drugs case. (People v. David.Z., Case No. BA435243-01.)
