Karen Phillips secured the dismissal of 7 of 8 misdemeanor charges, including possession of marijuana, on behalf of a client of the Nichols Law Firm and got an 8th charge reduced from Operating While Intoxicated to Operating While Visibly Impaired. The client forgot to renew their driver's license and vehicle registration which led to the majority of the multiple misdemeanor charges. The key to such a positive resolution was for the client to be proactive and update or renew their license and registration.

Karen Phillips negotiated dismissal of a new minor in possession of alcohol charge and probation violation resulting from client of the Nichols Law Firm testing positive for alcohol during a random preliminary breath test required while on diversion probation for a first offense minor in possession of alcohol charge. The client was able to continue with his diversion status with extended testing and an extended alcohol education course. The subsequent minor in possession charge w a s reduced to a civil infraction.
