5.0 stars – Posted by Beverley – August 31, 2016
Our nightmare began on September 17, 2015. Our nightmare ended on August 11, 2016. My son was wrongfully charged with 17 counts of rape and sexual assault It lasted 11 long months. On Thursday, August 9th, a jury rendered a verdict of not guilty of all the major charges, In addition, he retained his job in the Coast Guard and that in itself was unheard of. It was a miracle, and responsible for that miracle was God through our prayers and Michael Waddington and his defense team. They gave my son his honor and his life back, they gave us all our lives back.
We had lost hope, we were in despair when he agreed to take the case. Previous lawyers had told us there was little chance that it would turn out well. It was a David and Goliath scenario and we could not win against the mighty Coast Guard even if my son was innocent. Michael Waddington believed in my son and he won the case against all odds.
He and his wife Alexandra put in time and effort above what was expected of a lawyer, dealing with our family stress and continuous doubt and uncertainty. They worked hard, they put in long hours and they never let my son give up.
We thank God for the blessing of obtaining their professional services and wining back my son’s career and in doing so, preventing an injustice in a complicated and unfair legal military system.
Our family will never be able to repay the debt of gratitude we owe to him and his team.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
