Case Study – DWI on a 4-wheeler on private property
Charge: DWI – 2
Trial: Bench Trial
Outcome: Voluntary Dismissal
SW had been at the beach that day and was riding his 4-wheeler in the field across from his grandmother’s house where he kept it. He lived in Raleigh, but his family all lived in Duplin County.
A local police officer spotted SW riding his 4-wheeler from approximately a quarter mile away. By the time he was able to approach SW, SW had pulled the 4-wheeler into the barn where it was kept and was walking toward his grandmother’s house.
The officer approached SW, on private property, and requested he submit to a test of his breath. SW refused, at which time the officer arrested him for suspicion of DWI. SW was transported to the Duplin Sheriff’s office and was charged with DWI.
SW hired Gross Law Group and Attorney David Gross to represent him, and we prepared for trial. Our defense was based on the fact that SW had been operating his vehicle exclusively on private property. After several years of continuances, eventually the State of NC dismissed all charges against SW.
Case Study – Speeding on a Motorcycle, 5 years for trial
Charge: Speeding 119/45, Careless and Reckless Driving
Trial: Jury Trial
Outcome: Not Guilty Speeding, Not Guilty Careless and Reckless Driving
Attorney Gross was retained in 2017 by M.H. after he was found guilty at trial in District Court for speeding 119/45 and C&R driving. M.H. had been cited on the bypass in Jacksonville by a North Carolina State Trooper. M.H. was a local business owner who was very involved in community activities in Onslow County.
M.H. represented himself in District Court where he had a trial. M.H. was found guilty of all charges in District Court and appealed his charges to Superior Court for a jury trial. At this point, M.H. was determined to take his case as far as the system would allow as he felt the Trooper was targeting him personally and he was highly upset.
M.H. was originally charged in 2016, and I was hired in 2017. The case was finally tried in 2022, almost five years later. The D.A.’s office in Jacksonville made offer after offer to Attorney Gross to try to convince M.H. to plead to a reduced charge to avoid trial. M.H. was adamant that he wanted a jury trial and as Gross Law Group had been hired for a trial, we refused to take any plea offer. Needless to say, this did not make us very popular with the District Attorney’s office.
Five years after being charged, we finally picked a jury. The Trooper did not have a clear recollection of the facts of the case and that came out in the trial. The jury found M.H. not guilty of speeding 119/45 and not guilty of Careless and Reckless operation. M.H. had the courage and fortitude to stand behind his beliefs and not give up.
S.W. was also fortunate that Attorney David Gross is one of the few attorney’s who would actually try a five year old speeding ticket.
Case Study – Sexual Assault on School Bus
Charge: Sexual Assault/Indecent Exposure
Trial: Jury Trial
Outcome: Not Guilty
C.K. rode the bus to school, as he did every day. C.K. sat two seats behind the bus driver with a female student. The bus was equipped with cameras which recorded video and sound. The female passenger reported to the school, that C.K. had sexually assaulted her and exposed his penis to her. C.K. was questioned about the alleged assault and denied any contact with the female passenger.
This case was interesting as anything that occurred on the bus had been recorded. The female had not said anything on the bus ride, nor had she reported anything to the bus driver. Also, the female passenger had made an almost identical accusation against another student.
The trial was straight forward as the video from the bus was admitted in the state’s case. The female “victim” claimed that she had been assaulted in the seat on the bus. The video showed nothing that looked like an assault.
The investigating officer was caught in several lies, including that he had done a follow-up interview with the “victim.” The “victim” testified that she had only spoken to the officer once, contradicting the officer’s testimony. Also, the video of the whole bus ride was convincing.
C.K. hired Attorney Gross to represent him and was found not guilty of the charges against him. C.K. shared with Attorney Gross that he had fought harder for him than anyone has ever in his life.
Case Study – DWI when not in vehicle
Charge: DWI – 1
Trial: Jury Trial
Outcome: Trial 1)-Mistrial, (Trial 2)-Not Guilty
SW was driving in Duplin County around Christmas time. He had attended a holiday party with his girlfriend and was heading home around 2:00 AM. SW’s girlfriend was driving SW’s vehicle as SW was drinking that night.
SW and his girlfriend were arguing about her flirting with another guy at the holiday party. SW’s girlfriend pulled the vehicle off the road into a farm field (private property) and stopped the vehicle. She left and began walking down the road, and was picked up shortly by another vehicle.
SW pulled his vehicle closer to the road, at which time he became stuck in the mud. He then got out of his vehicle and began walking down the road. Approximately a mile down the road, he was stopped by a Duplin County Deputy who had been called by a passing driver about the vehicle in the field.
The Deputy was extremely professional and, importantly, he recorded the entire interaction on his body-cam. This is important because the arresting Trooper did not save his dash cam footage as he is required to by NC State Highway Patrol Policy.
The Deputy and SW were on the side of the road for approximately 20 minutes waiting for the Trooper. During the whole interaction, it was quite apparent that SW was intoxicated, but he maintained that his girlfriend had been driving. He told the Deputy the entire story about being left on the road and how his girlfriend was pregnant. Eventually the Trooper showed up to speak to SW.
The Trooper interacted with SW and the Deputy for approximately one and a half minutes before leaving to examine the vehicle in the field. The Trooper returned approximately five or six minutes later. He interacted with SW for less than a minute, before placing SW under arrest for DWI.
Prior to the Trooper arresting SW, no Standardized Field Sobriety Tests were requested or administered. By not requesting SFST’s, the Trooper denied SW due process. When they arrived at the station, SW refused to give a breath or blood sample. The Trooper obtained a search warrant for SW’s blood based on talking to him for a little less than three minutes total. This is much less evidence than is typically required to force a person to let the state take their blood.
SW was charged with DWI and given a District Court Date. SW hired another attorney for his District Court trial, but was found guilty.
SW appealed his case to Duplin Superior Court. At this point he hired The Gross Law Group and Attorney David Gross to represent him going forward.
Three years later, SW’s case was set for jury trial. The first jury trial lasted two days before the judge declared a mistrial. This meant the trial was over, but without a verdict the State could re-try SW, which they did.
The second jury trial lasted four days. SW was found not guilty by the jury of all the charges against him.
"This is the second case Mr. Gross has represented me in and the second case we have one together. He is professional concise and I would hate to be on the other side of the bench from him. Thanks again counselor!"
"I love the Gross Law Group! Thankful to have a skilled, supportive lawyer defend my spouse and I. This was an experience I do not wish on anyone! Attorney Gross is the best; he will not tolerate any buffoonery the court attempts to use. He calls it like it is, very assertive. We are forever grateful for him. Now we can continue on our journey. If you are looking for an attorney Mr. Gross is the man to see. He wont disappoint!"
"2 DWI's... NOT Guilty on the first and voluntary dismissal on the second!!! Attorney Gross is worth every penny! I hired Attorney Gross after my first DWI was sent to Superior Court. It ended in mistrial, we won the new trial!!! For my second DWI I didn't wait, I hired Attorney Gross from the beginning and he was able to get it dismissed!!!"
"I’m not sure how to say this in a less vulgar way, but David Gross pulled his **** out, laid it on the table, and then slapped the prosecuting attorney with it. I wouldn’t hire anyone else for a DUI, except for David Gross. Thank you very much."
"I called about a case that required immediate action. Mr.Gross did an outstanding job bringing out the truth and getting me through a stressful situation. Most attorneys wouldn’t be able to get to me until a week or two out and I did not have time to delay. The outcome of my case was exactly as he had said it would be and hoping not to need him again, but this is the first person I would call in the coastal Carolina area. Lauren was also very helpful as well. I would recommend to anyone in need of legal assistance!"
"I found myself in an unfortunate situation and hired Attorney David Gross. I was impressed with his ability to analyze and provide insight to my situation. His quick action allowed for quick dismissal of my case. If you find yourself in need of a top notch lawyer, hire him! I only gave 5 stars because there aren't more!"
"Attorney Gross was very thorough and spoke very highly of me to the judge. was very helpful and knowledgeable in regards to my particular case. ensured that I was fully prepared before court began. would fully recommend Attorney David Gross to anyone seeking a terrific lawyer."
"David was a pleasure to work with. I had a traffic violation in which I knew was not justified. He represented me in court and got it reduced to improper equipment which saved me big time on my insurance bill. Even though I was satisfied with the outcome, he wanted me to know that he would take it to the next step, which was a trial to prove my innocence. If you’re looking for an attorney that will go to bat for you, David is your man. He is a down to earth guy, who is easy to speak with, and will truly understand your situation. Communication in regards to my case was excellent and I was never left in the dark. Highly satisfied with his services."
"We live out of town but my son received a ticket while in Wilmington. This law firm is outstanding. Not only were they affordable (my son paid for this himself), they were able to get his case dismissed. They always kept me informed and up to date. Thank you Gross Law Group!"
"Great service. This firm transformed an incredibly stressful predicament to a stress free and easily resolved situation. I am beyond satisfied with the experience, expertise, professionalism and favorable results I received from this legal team."
