The client was charged with an assault alleged by his mentally unstable wife. Unfortunately, police officers on scene do not always have the time to make proper observations of their victim and in this case, despite numerous in-house contacts, they simply took her word for it and charged the accused. The assault allegedly occurred at a bus stop and was apparently witnessed by three bystanders. Upon thorough review, it was clear that the witnesses only viewed the end of the event. In fact, what they saw was the client tackling his wife before she was about to jump into traffic in a suicide attempt. At first, this admittedly seems far fetched. Thus, a third-party records application was launched in which Mr. Lewandowski subpoenaed the complainants psychiatrist, who confirmed that there had been previous suicidal ideation and that she had attempted self-harm in analogous situations. Thus, Mr. Lewandowski was able to successfully demonstrate that the client was attempting to stop his wife from harming herself. This was not an assault, despite what the independent witness thought they saw. The client was acquitted.
