In a nationally publicized trial in Georgia, a kindergarten teacher was facing 22 counts of criminal sexual conduct involving three little girls. Her sentence would have been 400 or more years in prison. This teacher lost her job, her house, her children, and nearly her marriage – all before trial, as a result of merely being accused. After intense scientific research, testimony from world-renowned experts, and a month-long trial, our attorney led a legal team including several Georgia and Tennessee attorneys to win this teacher a “not guilty” on all 22 counts!
In Pennsylvania, our client (a respected medical professional) was faced with a nasty divorce. After his soon-to-be-ex wife traipsed around the Pennsylvania countryside, blithely telling anyone who would listen that she was going to take everything our client had, she got serious and filed false allegations of sexual abuse against our client. Lorandos Joshi got involved as the investigation was underway, and as a result of our expertise in these situations, all of these false criminal charges were dropped with prejudice.
An Arizona client was facing false allegations of abuse to his young son, who he was rarely permitted to see. After our attorneys took the case and did in-depth research into these allegations, we were able to show that the allegations were completely unfounded. We prevented the allegations from being formally charged, and we achieved a generous parenting plan. Today, that little boy enjoys the company of his father more than three times as much as he was allowed to see him before.
Our client, an international outsourcer of business process services, brought an action for fraud against a mortgage finance company in the United States. To avoid a jury trial on what was a clear-cut case of fraudulent conduct, the defendants filed a claim for arbitration and moved to have the entire action removed to arbitration on the grounds the underlying contract between the parties contained an arbitration clause. After an intensive battle in the trial court, our attorneys won the argument. The case was allowed to proceed to trial and the “red herring” arbitration claim was stayed.
In Michigan, a father of six was facing the breakup of his family. After the mother of the children began falsely accusing the father of sexual abuse to some of the children, our attorneys got to work. Our in depth research into the background and facts of the case showed a long history of the mother filing false claims of all kinds. We proved that the father was a good and loving parent. The research, witnesses, and scientific material we developed resulted in all charges being dropped!
Our client, an international information technology solutions provider, discovered that its former employee, a software engineer, was in serious breach of her non-disclosure and non-competition agreement with our client. The former employee had begun working with a customer of our client, which in turn threatened several ongoing projects that our client had with this customer. Our client was in danger of losing highly lucrative projects, and the livelihoods of many employees hung in the balance. Our attorneys, after a thorough investigation, sought an immediate intervention from the court to restrain the former employee from working for the customer. Days before an evidentiary hearing on our request for a restraining order, the former employee settled to the satisfaction of our client, and the business was saved.
In Michigan, our client, a father of six, was facing the agonizing threat of termination of his parental rights to all six of his children.

A California resident, after attending a wedding with his dysfunctional family members in Michigan, was accused of a crime of criminal sexual conduct. The police, after listening to the “victim’s” version of the events was about to wrap up the “investigation” and request a warrant for our client’s arrest. Our attorneys’ launched an investigation and had our licensed private investigators talk to several eye-witnesses. Our attorneys also discovered several social media websites where the “victim” had posted comments that negated her claims of being a victim of a sex crime. After our attorneys presented the county prosecutors with details of our investigation, no charges were brought against the client and the case was closed.
A franchisee of a nation-wide franchise was in the red, bleeding cash, and wanted to bail on the loss-making franchise. Unfortunately, the client was locked into a franchise agreement that exposed him to hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages in case of the termination of his franchise prior to a set term. Our attorneys negotiated a settlement with the franchisor and the landlord that allowed the client to walk away from the franchise at a fraction of what the client was required to pay under the contract.
An employee of our client, a software developer company, caused an unintentional security breach. While accessing a peer-to-peer network, the employee inadvertently leaked files containing sensitive personal data of hundreds of employees on the internet. After the client became aware of the security breach, our attorneys worked with the client’s in-house legal department to control the fallout and mitigate the damage. Our attorneys conducted an extensive investigation along with computer forensic and security experts, data recovery experts, and carefully complied with the data security breach notification laws of several states. Our proactive approach and thorough investigation satisfied the Federal Trade Commission and our client escaped an official investigation and/or adverse action by the Commission.
Lorandos Joshi won a settlement in a transnational litigation involving claims of theft of trade secrets on highly favorable terms for its client, an Indian corporation with subsidiaries in the U.S. and the U.K. Our client sued a well known U.S. corporation with subsidiaries in several countries and its top management in a federal district court in the United States. Our client alleged that the defendants poached key employees from its India office and stole trade secrets and other proprietary information. The defendant multinational and its top executives retained a well known East coast law firm.
Over the course of this litigation, our attorneys gave the powerhouse East coast firm a run for its money and engaged in a knock-down, drag-out fight over depositions in the U.S. and in New Delhi, India, motion practice, electronic discovery, and forensic analysis of computers and servers situated in a foreign jurisdiction. With law enforcement agencies and media in the U.S. and in India watching closely over this litigation, the defendants settled. Although the terms of the settlement are confidential, it is fair to say that the offer was too good for our client to pass up.
Two local attorneys, members of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, said that they had never seen a similar case won in the 30 plus years they had been practicing in the area. The client had everything stacked against him: Muslim, affluent and Republican in blue-collar Democratic town, and intensely negative press coverage that blanketed the jury pool.
Two things won this case: (1) a very aggressive investigation plan; and (2) a very aggressive pre-trial motion plan. A team of investigators collected everything they could find on the former temporary employees who had made the accusations. In addition, the team traveled across three states to locate a crucial friendly witness. Next, the prosecution was hit hard with a series of pre-trial motions in which the personal knowledge aspect of the alleged victims was put to intense psychological scrutiny. Steps were also taken in the media to counteract the intensely negative pre-trial coverage.
The prosecution realized its case had been devastated and dropped all charges the day of the trial.
Federal prosecutors charged our client, an owner of a prominent construction company, of conspiring to smuggle aliens into the U.S. from eastern European countries.

Our client, a software consultant corporation, hired software engineers from India, China, and other countries.

Our client, an architect and an Adjunct Professor of Architecture in a prominent university in the Midwest, faced serious liability as the result of a roof collapse during one of his projects.

The case against our client was dropped.
A lawsuit-happy patient decided that our client, a medical professional, had a nice building that was ripe for the taking. She informed the local police that the client was committing sexual acts during her medical visits. The police and the state's attorney general collaborated to send the woman back with a hidden video camera to tape several visits. Next, the police and the attorney general found two local "experts" in the same medical specialty to testify that what the client had done was unethical, incompetent, and completely sexual in orientation. At trial, the district attorney showed the video, got testimony from the local "experts" and even got another patient to blurt out during her testimony "He did sexual stuff to me too!" Again, our team used the science and the published research in the scientific journals to cross-examine the witnesses. The result: not guilty of all charges.
Our client found himself involved in a RICO and Ponzi scheme nightmare, facing bankruptcy and worse. Our aggressive research and representation in the suit and depositions brought the opponents to their knees.

Then we got him his house, his business, and his kids. The former beauty queen was restricted to visits after she got therapy.
