Charge(s): Assault w/ a Dangerous Weapon (Felonious Assault)

Date: September 2012

Details: A 30 year old construction worker who was looking for his girlfriend was told that she might be at another man’s house. Distraught, he went to the man’s house – it was an old friend he knew. He noticed two individuals sitting in a parked car in the driveway. He recognized them as the man and his girlfriend. The man looked back and saw my client, so the man immediately got out of his car and attempted to tackle my client, who successfully defended himself. continue reading »

Charges were filed against my client based on the man and two other witness’s statements: the man’s brother and the brother’s friend who were both supposedly looking through window of the house. The client came to Dallo Law and explained his side of the story. In our negotiations with the prosecutor’s office, we received no offer to reduce the charge at all. We discussed the options and possible outcomes with our client and decided to go to trial.

All three of the prosecutor’s witnesses testified that they saw my client attack and beat up the man and even attempt to run him down with his truck. When J. Dallo cross-examined them, he was able to demonstrate to the jury that their testimony was made-up, varied greatly among each witness who claimed they saw everything as clear as day, and lacked credibility. The jury deliberated and found my client NOT GUILTY.


Charge(s): Manslaughter

Date: July 2019

Details: A new mom was bathing her one-month old in the bathtub. She was distracted for a moment and stepped out of the bathroom. This brief act would change her life permanently. She returned to see her child unresponsive. She picked up and wrapped him in a towel, called 911 right away, and – while waiting for the EMT to arrive – yelled out to her neighbors to come help. This was a close-knit community with houses very close to each other so several neighbors did answer her calls and rushed inside the house to see what they could do. Sadly, no one knew CPR and tried doing things they learned from watching TV that resembled resuscitation to no avail. continue reading »

Of course, you could imagine the impact this had on her psyche, on her relationship with her husband who would work all day and night and so needed to trust his wife with the welfare of their baby boy. Her husband moved out and rented his own apartment as they remained separated. The mother fell into a deep depression only to later discover that she was being formally charged with the death of her son.

After retaining other lawyers to defend her, she realized they did not care about this matter as much as she needed them to; as much as she thought they would. So, she fired them and then both the husband and wife called Dallo Law and met with Attorney Dallo. They recognized immediately that J. Dallo was engaged! They knew he cared and wanted to justice. After meeting with Dallo, the wife’s confidence increased, she began taking parenting classes on child rearing, on technique, and earned several certificates. She never stopped mourning the death of her son and still wanted to improve as a mom and kept moving forward.

Attorney Dallo attended child protective services hearings and demonstrated the mom’s efforts, that her husband had returned to her, that she has his support, that they had another son, and wanted to be a family again.

At the same time, she was facing a serious criminal charge. Attorney Dallo was able to convince the prosecutor to reduce the charge to Child Abuse – 3rd Degree, which carried with it a maximum prison sentence of 5 years, which the probation office recommended to the judge at sentencing and which the prosecutor vehemently supported. However, Dallo Law was vigorous in its defense. Attorney Dallo impressed upon the judge that this loss was not intentional, it was an unforgiveable mistake, yes, and a mistake our client would be punishing herself for for the rest of her life. The judge, understandably, was in tears, as we all were. The judge realized the mom would need treatment and classes more than anything, to learn a lesson, to never make such a mistake again. She could see the effort our client made in improving, that her husband was by her side, that they had strong family support. And, in a decision that shocked the probation office and the prosecutor, causing the prosecutor to her to raise her voice in protest, the judge sentenced my client to no jail time, and five (5) years of probation wherein our client would have to continue taking parenting classes and being supervised by probation including visits at home. This outcome made much more sense than locking her up, taking her away from her new son when she was doing everything she could to be a better mom. Instead, through Attorney Dallo’s effort, the sentence was fashioned to improve her parenting skills, her relationship with her husband, and the future of this family.

    Client Testimonials

    I had the best experience dealing with my wife's immigration visa to enter the US and join me to be married. Jalal truly did as he said he would. When he told me it takes 4 months to get immigration approval, I received approval in 6 weeks. The problems began at the last stage when the Embassy was going through the file. But of course Jalal was on it every step of the way. within 6 months, my wife arrived and we were married.

    Take my word that if there is any immigration issues you face, Jalal should be your choice. I plan to use him for my future immigration needs. And most importantly, I am going to have him handle this matter as well. In addition to that, I will retain him for all my legal matters relating to traffic or any criminal or misdemeanor matters.

    God bless you for your work Jalal.

    I was facing 20 years in prison on a trumped up racketeering charge including 6 more felonies. Jay fought by my side for 26 months straight. Prosecution begged us to accept plea deal after plea deal with our continued refusals. Long story short, prosecution offered a plea deal last minute before I was to go to trial. The deal was dropping 6 of the 7 felonies including the most serious charges. I accepted. I ended up with a 6 month sentence in jail. I was very happy with the results considering the circumstances. Jays strategy was phenomenal and without him by my side, the results would have ruined my life

    I got a Traffic ticket due to a speeding and for using a car with plates out of the state. According to the officer using plates from out of the state was considered a misdemeanor. Mr. Dallo was able to handle the situation and reach an agreement with the prosecutor to eliminate the misdemeanor and to change the speeding ticket to a minor offense, no points, no additional insurance cost. I recommend his services due to the professional negotiation and great knowledge of the people at the court.
