Novi Defense Attorney Gets Case Dismissed

Ticket in Novi gets dismissed.

In the 47th District Court, Novi defense attorney Dana Nessel represented a client who had received a civil infraction on the charge of careless driving. The client was facing a default judgment, which had already been entered against her in the case.  The clerk’s office claimed that they sent the client notice of her court hearing in the mail, however the client never received the notice.  Weeks later, the client received a notice for a default judgment. 

A default judgment means that the court has automatically ruled against the defendant for, among other things, failing to appear.  Typically it is very difficult to have a default judgment set aside.  However, in this instance, not only was Novi defense attorney Dana Nessel able to convince the court to set aside the judgment, but she was able to have the ticket dismissed completely!
