Auto Injury Case

Recently, Attorney Brian Jean helped make one of our clients whole again after he got hit by a vehicle while riding a lawnmower. The client suffered facial lacerations during the accident. Through negotiations, our team at Triton Legal was able to settle the case for over three times the original offer by the insurance company.

Restored Driving Privileges

Today, Attorney Joseph Blata received notice that he was able to regain driving privileges for three different clients. Even though two clients had very complicated histories, he was able to get restricted privileges for both of them from one of the toughest hearing officers in the State of Michigan. His third client was able to get his restrictions removed and become a fully licensed driver.

Custody Challenge

Recently, the Custody Attorneys with Triton Legal were able to fend off a challenge from a non-custodial parent to change custody of a child. Triton Legal’s client had been the primary caretaker for most of the child’s life and was entering Kindergarten. When the noncustodial father learned of the child’s progression, he filed a motion to change custody, primarily to put the child at a school in a location more advantageous to him.

Attorney Brian Jean, after a lengthy hearing, was able to successfully defend against the motion to change schools, and in the process of doing so, the noncustodial father dropped the remainder of his challenge to custody, keeping this young child in the care of her mother.

Probation Violation

Attorney Brian Jean recently represented a client who found out, much to her surprise, that she had an outstanding warrant from two years ago. Unbeknownst to her, when she was on probation several years ago, the probation agent alleged she violated her terms and issued a warrant. She contacted Triton Legal PLC and Brian Jean was able to negotiate a small fine with no other sanctions.

Dismissal in Resisting/Obstructing Case

This morning in Saginaw County, our attorney secured a dismissal of all charges in which his client was charged with assaulting, resisting, or obstructing a police officer in violation of MCL 750.81d. On the morning of the jury trial, the prosecution attempted to get the client to take a plea offer, offering several different plea bargains. We remained steadfast that the client had done absolutely nothing wrong, and they weren't interested in making a deal.

Court of Appeals Win

On February 5, 2019, the Michigan Court of Appeals issued its decision in Tambs v Jennings. Attorney Brian H. Jean represented the Defendants in both the Trial Court and Appeals Court. The clients had purchased a home out of foreclosure, and upon entering the home, found that the prior owners had abandoned all of their property. The prior owners subsequently filed a civil action claiming that they were entitled to their abandoned property. Triton Legal and Attorney Brian H. Jean argued that the Plaintiffs had abandoned their property by not removing it from the home when they were evicted by the mortgage company.

Court of Appeals reversed the Trial Court's decision.
