Michigan Defense Attorney Mark Satawa Saved My Son
Satawa Law Continues Its Run Of Success
Mark Satawa and attorney Steve Palmer won a not guilty in an Ohio self-defense murder case. The client, “Steve,” a hard working father and husband was leaving for work one morning, when he stumbled on a woman sitting on the ground, with her back against a guardrail, in a ball, with a man standing over her, and the woman screaming “get off me.” Steve gets out of the car with a rifle, and says “get off her.” The guy eventually turns around, and starts screaming “I’m not afraid of a gun, go ahead, shoot me in the head!” Steve backs up, yelling “please stop please stop I don’t wanna shoot you.” The victim gets less than a foot from Steve, grabs for the barrel of the gun, and Steve shoots. The jury deliberated for 4 hours, before finding Steve NOT GUILTY of all charges.

Satawa Law Recently Won A Huge Victory In A Large And Complex Medical Fraud
The client, a doctor in his 70’s, was charged with conducting a criminal enterprise, MCL 333.7401; 2 counts of delivery or manufacture of a controlled substance (schedule 4), MCL 333.7401(2)(c); 2 counts of false pretenses $1,000 to $20,000, MCL 750.218; unauthorized practice of a health profession, MCL 333.16294; and insurance fraud, MCL 500.4511(1), in connection with his running of a clinic that managed pain and treated victims of auto accidents. After a contested preliminary exam, that consisted of several hearing dates spanning over one year, a district court judge found that there was insufficient evidence to find that “probable cause exists that the crimes charged were committed and that [client] committed them. Accordingly the court does not find probable cause to bind over on any of the charges.” Court went on to order “that all charges are DISMISSED.”

"I ran into an unfortunate situation a while back — I was charged with several counts of 1st and 3rd degree criminal sexual conduct. A friend of mine that I occasionally had sex with for several months claimed I came to her house one night and raped her. We hired a lawyer that came highly recommended by a friend of the family that was a retired prosecutor. It turned out that he was not what we hoped he was.
