Family Violence Assault Bodily Injury case Rejected and Expunged before being filed by County Attorney in Hunt County
Client was involved in an argument with ex-husband related to child visitation issues.

Corrigan secured an ANP from the complaining witness and submitted it with a full case-history to the County Attorney and convinced them to reject the case and agree to an expunction before client was even entitled. The arrest was expunged on July 25, 2012.
