Vandalism

Testimonials

I was charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon (Penal Code Section 245(a)(1) for striking someone repeatedly with a metal broom handle; I was also charged with felony vandalism [Penal Code Section 594(a)] for causing about $2000.00 in damages to a home I rented with other people [Maximum Jail Exposure was 3 years].
These events occurred while I was severely intoxicated. 
I am a professional and these charges could have had a severe impact on my career. My family hired Attorney Will Bruzzo to represent me due to his experience and good results with previous similar cases.
Mr. Bruzzo negotiated with two different Prosecutors and had me consult with a licensing attorney to produce a letter to show the possible detriment to my career.
In the end Mr. Bruzzo persuaded the District Attorney to DISMISS both felonies Penal Code Section 245(a) (1) [Assault with a Deadly Weapon] and Penal Code Section 594(a) [Felony Vandalism].
I pled ‘no contest’ to Penal Code Section 415(1) (Disturbing the Peace) and Penal Code Section 602(k) (Trespass) [both misdemeanors]; I was also ordered to do out-patient, Anger Management and Work Release instead of jail.
I am very happy with this result and I would enthusiastically recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any Felony Assault with a deadly weapon [Penal Code Section 245(a) (1)] or Felony Vandalism [Penal Code Section 594(a)] case.

I was charged with felony Vandalism under Penal Code Section 594 (a)/ (b) (1); I was very concerned with the effect this would have on my record to say nothing of jail time.
I hired Attorney Will Bruzzo to represent me. Mr. Bruzzo negotiated a civil compromise with the District Attorney. This reduced the case to a misdemeanor and DISMISSED the case after I compensated the victim.

I was charged with Battery on a Peace Officer (Penal Code Section 243(b)), Vandalism (Penal Code Section 594(a)/ (b) (1) and Public Intoxication (Penal Code Section 647(f).  I was facing up to one year in jail for these offenses. [Defendant got drunk, assaulted a police officer and broke a window]
I hired Attorney Will Bruzzo to represent me. Mr. Bruzzo is very familiar with the courts and the District Attorney in Orange County. He argued my lack of a record and other positive things about my character.
In the end, he got ALL MY CHARGES DISMISSED, after I gave DNA.
I never admitted guilt, I never did any jail time and I have no conviction even though the case against me could have been easily proven.
As such, I would enthusiastically recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any Battery on a Peace Officer (Penal Code Section 243(b), Vandalism (Penal Code Section 594(a)/ (b) (1) or Public Intoxication (Penal Code Section 647(f) case.

I got intoxicated one night and entered a home without permission of the owner. After I entered I committed over $5000.00 of property damage. When Police arrived I ran away from them despite them telling me to come to them.
I was originally arrested for Burglary (Penal Code Section 460(b)), Vandalism (Penal Code Section 594(b) (1)), Public Intoxication (Penal Code Section 647(f)) and Obstructing Justice/Resisting Arrest (Penal Code Section 148(a) (1).  [Bail was set at $25,000.00]
I hired Attorney Will Bruzzo to represent me in this matter. Mr. Bruzzo was concerned I might be charged with a felony. So he contacted the District Attorney before the court date and wrote them a letter explaining my lack of a record and good character. The District Attorney then filed the case as a misdemeanor Vandalism (Penal Code Section 594(a) (1) and Resisting
Arrest (Penal Code Section 148(a) (1).
Mr. Bruzzo then contacted the victim [Homeowner] and got them to agree to write a letter indicating he did not want prosecution once I compensated him for his damages. This is called a civil compromise. [The District Attorney (DA) then Dismissed that charge]
He then convinced the DA to DISMISS the resisting arrest charge once I did community service.  In short, Mr. Bruzzo got both charges and the entire case completely DISMISSED. I would therefore enthusiastically recommend him for any criminal case.

I was charged with Public Intoxication (Penal Code Section 647 (f)), Vandalism (Penal Code Section 594(a)/ (b) (2) (A)) and Resisting Arrest (Penal Code Section 148(a) (1). These charges arose when I got highly intoxicated at a bar. After I refused to leave the bar police were called. I then resisted their efforts to remove me. Then, once I was in the police car, I kicked out the window of the police car. I was facing up to 1 year [in jail] for these offenses. In addition I had a prior arrest for Domestic Violence. I hired Attorney Will Bruzzo to represent me because of the excellent results he got in other similar cases and because of his familiarity with the courts and District Attorney in Orange County.

Mr. Bruzzo managed to negotiate a result where the charges will be DISMISSED once I complete a class. I am very happy with this result and I would enthusiastically recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any similar criminal matter.

I was charged with vandalism [Penal Code Section594(a)/(b)(1)], unauthorized entry of a dwelling [Penal Code Section 602.5 (a)] and violation of a restraining order [Penal Code Section 166(a)(4). I faced up to [1 year] in jail for these offenses. I hired Attorney William W. Bruzzo to represent me in this matter. The first thing Mr. Bruzzo did was get me out of jail by having me released on my own recognizance-which means that I did not have to pay bail. Then Mr. Bruzzo began to negotiate my case with the DA. In the end he got all charges dismissed after I paid restitution [damages]. As such I would enthusiastically recommend Mr. Bruzzo  for any criminal matter.
