Dimitri has gotten cases dismissed, lesser charges, probation, and argued for much lesser sentences for his clients:
Dismissals and Not Guilty Verdicts
United States v. Jerry Gomina: Dimitri was part of a criminal defense team who won a complete "Not Guilty" verdict in a federal criminal trial accusing Mr. Gomina of gun smuggling. At trial, Dimitri and the defense team were able to show that the federal ATF agent and the informant had given false testimony. A federal not guilty verdict is a rare occurrence (less than 1% of federal criminal cases end up with not guilty verdicts), and Dimitri is one of the few attorneys who have obtained one.
United States v. Washington: Dimitri obtained a dismissal of this federal drug conspiracy case, where the defendant was a possible career offender who faced up to life in prison.
United States v. Weatherford: The Government indicted Defendant on a drug conspiracy that carried a minimum 5 years and maximum 40 year term of imprisonment. At the preliminary hearing, Dimitri convinced the Judge that the Government had not shown that Defendant actively participated in drug conspiracy and was not merely present at the scene of a drug transaction. In rare move, the Court dismissed complaint against Defendant.
United States v. Henderson: Defendant was charged with social security fraud, and originally faced up to 5 years imprisonment. The case was dismissed after the client successfully completed pretrial diversion that Dimitri successfully negotiated.

United States v. Hooks: Defendant faced 3 year recommended sentence for importing drugs into a federal prison. Dimitri convinced the judge to sentence client to Probation at sentencing.
