The Law Offices of Katherine Schwinghammer



“At trial, the CHP officer testified that he visually estimated my speed at 85 miles per hour, activated his radar, got a reading of 87 mph, and locked it in at 85. Katherine presented an alternate explanation for what the officer saw, and she was able to instill in the Court some Reasonable Doubt that my speed had exceeded 65 mph. I was immediately found Not Guilty. The Judge told Katherine she did a great job, and he complimented me on hiring an excellent attorney. Then the bailiff complimented her too and asked for her card.”
