Examples of Past Criminal Defense Cases
One of Susan’s highly-publicized cases involved an Orthodox Jewish man named Avi Werdesheim, who in 2012 was accused of assaulting an African-American teenager while on neighborhood watch in his neighborhood. Avi pleaded self-defense. The case sparked a great deal of racial tension throughout Baltimore, with heated opinions from the Jewish and African-American communities, as well as the public at large. Susan’s skilled management of the media assisted in the legal defense she crafted, which concluded with Avi being acquitted of the charges.
In another case that received national attention, Susan represented a high-school student who was accused of assaulting her art teacher. While the witness testimony of what occurred was conflicting, it was clear that the teacher had called the student a number of derogatory names, which started the conflict. The conflict was videotaped on a cell phone, which was then broadcast throughout the nation on television shows including “Nancy Grace.” Susan’s client was needlessly vilified by the media, although Susan fought back and presented a solid defense of the young girl. The girl was acquitted of all charges except the least-serious charge of “disrupting the school day.”
