Although a lot of people joke about lawyers being a hassle to work with, when push comes to shove, the right lawyer can mean the difference between guilty and not guilty. Your lawyer should speak for you and say what you want to say. But what happens when a lawyer and his client are not of the same mind? A source tells of such a criminal case.

On February 10, 2005, Jack W was convicted of two counts of 1st degree robbery. He appealed to have a retrial and to be given a different lawyer, on the basis that his lawyer, Joseph D, did not represent him properly. Washington said that he did not authorize his lawyer to admit in court that he was guilty of 2nd degree robbery.

Robberies can happen anywhere from subway trains, on the streets, and even inside your own apartments. A competent source recalls a robbery case which happened on May 4, 1984 at around 10pm. It involved Lyman Green along with Harold Vizian who came into the apartment of John Matlock in Long Island. Vizian was a former boarder of Matlock and as they entered, he offered him immediately an item to sell at $35. But after inspecting the vise, the victim said that he was not interested to buy it even if the price was lessened.

According to further research made by another expert, Matlock told the two to leave already but they refused and instead assaulted him as they demand for money. Vizian was the one who closed the door and just watched Green and Matlock argue. This was the point when Green threatened Matlock with a pen knife which he got from the victim’s own pants. As they were struggling, Green ripped off Matlock’s pockets to get his wallet and then eventually ran out of the place. Vizian already left the place by this time.
