Judge to Hear Arguments Over Alex Murdaugh’s Assets

Gloria Satterfield died in 2018 after an alleged trip-and-fall accident in Alex Murdaugh’s home. Alex Murdaugh is a prominent South Carolina lawyer with longstanding family ties to the community.

Attorneys for the estate of Satterfield filed a lawsuit against Murdaugh alleging her heirs had not received life insurance settlement money they were owed after her death. 

Eric Bland and Ronnie Richter, the lawyers representing Satterfield’s family, claim Murdaugh schemed to steal the insurance money by persuading Satterfield’s sons to sue him for her wrongful death. Murdaugh allegedly promised Satterfield’s sons they would be well paid and recruited a close friend, Cory Fleming, to represent the son’s interest.

Three years later, Satterfield’s sons hadn’t seen any of $4.3 million in total settlement payouts.

In a recent interview on Court TV, Denver defense attorney Jeffrey Wolf discussed the bizarre and complex nature of the case—one that involves a well-known legal figure.

“It’s a drama playing out in real time. It’s the rich and the powerful; it’s a soap opera,” said Wolf. “This is a stain on attorneys—this is why attorneys have the reputation that we have…these are the stories people think of. They think of the attorney always trying to get one over on the court…and this guy is the worst example of it.”

Keith Johansen Sentenced to Life in Prison For Murdering Wife

A jury deliberated for less than three hours before finding Keith Johansen guilty of shooting his wife on April 7, 1018. Johansen, 39, will spend the rest of his life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Johansen initially claimed his wife had accidentally shot herself in their home located in Palm Coast, Florida. As the investigation unfolded, Johansen would go on to change his story several times over. At one point, he even accused their 6-year-old son of accidentally firing the gun. At trial, Johansen admitted to shooting his wife, but claimed he did so in self-defense.

While it’s unusual to see murder defendants on the stand, it was particularly unusual in this case, as Johansen didn’t show emotion or grief about his wife’s murder throughout his testimony. He came off unsympathetic and made no eye contact with the jury.

In a recent interview on Court TV, Denver defense attorney Jeffrey Wolf discussed the significant gamble Johansen took by taking the stand.

“It’s ultimately up to the defendant. The attorney can only give advice,” explained Wolf. “But oftentimes there are disagreements… And when there is, what the defendant says goes…”

Day Nine of Jury Selection Underway for Ahmaud Arbery Murder Case

Ahmaud Arbery was shot and killed while running through a Georgia neighborhood in February 2020. Gregory and Travis McMichael were arrested along with a neighbor, William Bryan, who filmed the confrontation.

As jury selection continues this week, potential jurors are allowed to watch the news, observe protests and demonstrations that continue outside the Glynn County courtroom. When given the opportunity to change the location of the trial, defense attorneys decided against it.

In a recent interview on Court TV, Denver defense lawyer Jeffrey Wolf discussed the possible motivation behind the defense’s decision.

“They’ve been very confident about what they’re going to get out of Glynn County jurors…” explained Wolf. “It’s a small southern county trying a white man for a black man’s murder. They think they’re going to get better jurors out of Glynn County than they would out of, say…Cobb County near Atlanta…a more urban center, a more liberal center. What they’re doing is taking their only shot, which is to bet that in 2021 a white man gets a walk in a southern rural county.”

Larry Millete Arrested For Wife’s Murder in San Diego

On Jan. 7, 2021, Maya Millete contacted a divorce lawyer to begin the separation process with her husband, Larry Millete. Investigators believe that Larry killed Maya later that evening. Nine months after her disappearance, Larry Millete was arrested for his wife’s murder in their Chula Vista home.

While Maya’s family insisted that her sudden absence was highly suspect, Larry Millete alleged that Maya had selfishly abandoned him and their three school-aged children.

San Diego District Attorney Summer Stephan believes the evidence against Millete is enough to move forward, though the victim’s body has yet to be recovered. California law allows for the filing of murder changes even without the victim’s body.

 An arrest warrant affidavit filed last week states that Millete sent hundreds of emails to ‘psychics’ and ‘spirit channelers’ in an attempt to hex or injure his wife.

In a recent interview on Court TV, Denver defense lawyer Jeffrey Wolf discussed the unusual nature of the evidence and the pervasiveness of murder cases involving domestic violence

“What a tragedy…” said Wolf. “We’re starting to see a lot more of these domestic violence, disappearance cases…and what seems like such a ‘how could they even charge this person—they don’t even have a body’…all of a sudden you show up at trial and you get the answers…all of sudden the trial starts and you get forensic evidence that’s backing up what’s in that affidavit that’s made public.”Watch the video for details about this case and for more commentary from Jeffrey Wolf.

Jury Selection Begins for the Killing of Ahmaud Arbery

In the afternoon on Feb. 23, 2020, a black man named Ahmaud Arbery, 25, went for a jog in Brunswick, Georgia, a coastal community about five hours south of Atlanta. Upon entering a neighborhood called Satilla Shores, a white resident named Gregory McMichael incorrectly identified Arbery as a suspect in a string of alleged local break-ins.

Gregory and his son, Travis McMichael, then armed themselves and pursued Arbery in a pickup truck. Gregory and Travis allege that they called out to Arbery and asked him to stop so they could speak with him. When Arbery resisted the confrontation, a fight broke out and three shots were fired. The autopsy report showed that Arbery had two gunshot wounds in his chest. Arbery was unarmed.

More than two months later, Gregory and Travis McMichael were arrested along with a neighbor, William Bryan, who filmed the entirety of the confrontation from behind the McMichael’s truck.

The three men each face nine charges including murder and aggravated assault. They have pleaded not guilty.

Jury selection began last week, presenting unique challenges for the prosecution. Despite the horrific video evidence, for example, the defense is likely to use the video to appeal to biased jurors.

In a recent interview on Court TV, Denver defense lawyer Jeffrey Wolf discussed the challenges of jury selection in a case that seems purely motivated by racial prejudice.

“With jury selection, the difficulties that they’re facing is that the state is obviously dealing with a biased jury pool,” explained Wolf. “This is the Deep South…we know the makeup of the town and the racial divides that exist, still, in this country. The prosecution is looking for people who are going to be open and fair, who are going to give the victim, in this case a black man, the same rights that they’d give the white defendants.”

Man Accused of Killing Nine Neighbors By Setting Fires

Stanley Ford, 62, of Akron, Ohio, is accused of nine arson deaths. Ford is accused of more murders than anyone in Summit County history, including the deaths of seven family members killed in a house fire in May of 2017.

In June 2020, a judge declared a mistrial after jurors were excused over concerns of COVID-19. Stanley now faces a new trial, despite having maintained his innocence for several years. If convicted, Ford could face the death penalty. 

Earlier this week, the lead case detective testified on the 2016 crimes, but her testimony was riddled with confusing behaviors like whistling and argumentative answers. In a recent Court TV interview, Denver defense attorney Jeff Wolf discussed the defense’s strategy against this key witness.

“I think the defense is doing an excellent job…” explained Wolf. “He’s laying out every time she walked away from a lead, and he’s showing a lack of familiarity with her own case. Obviously she’s retired, obviously it’s been a number of years, but she should have been ready for this…”

“This defense attorney is doing an excellent job with the law of escalating punishment,” Wolf continued, “where he was super polite at first and gave her an opportunity to review her report…and then when she was not able to find the things that she could seemingly be making up on the stand to explain why she didn’t follow up, he says: well let me help you out. It’s not in there! The Jury is now with him…and the jury doesn’t trust this witness anymore.”

Chad Isaak Guilty on All Charges: Jeff Wolf Shares Extended Insight on Court TV

Last week, the trial of Chad Isaak came to a close after less than five hours of jury deliberations. Isaak has been found guilty on all charges for the gruesome killings of four people at a North Dakota property management firm two years ago.

The case has been described as one the most heinous crimes in that state’s history. More than 900 pieces of evidence were introduced during the three week trial. But despite compelling evidence, prosecutors were still unable to answer one of the most meaningful questions in this case: why?

Even without a clear motivation to commit these crimes, Chad Isaak, a chiropractor and Navy veteran, now faces life in prison without parole.

“Either the state has successfully stopped a serial killer or they’ve got the wrong guy,” explained Denver defense lawyer, Jeff Wolf, during a recent Court TV interview. “There’s no in-between in this case.”

Isaak now awaits sentencing, which will include an opportunity for victims and their families to speak in court.

“It’s incredibly important for victims of crimes,” Wolf continued. “It’s a moment of closure…now I get to look at the person convicted of murdering my loved one and say what I have to say. It’s an invaluable part of the process.”

Jeff Wolf Reviews Defense Strategy in North Dakota Quadruple Murder on Court TV

Chad Isaak of Washburn, North Dakota, is on trial for the deaths of RJR Maintenance & Management co-owner Robert Fakler, and co-workers Adam Fuehrer and Bill and Lois Cobb.

According to defense attorney Bruce Quick, it was one of the most heinous crimes in North Dakota history. But Quick’s arguing that the case amounts to a rush to judgment based on bad information. His client, Chad Isaak, has plead not guilty to four counts of murder and three other counts.

Last week, Fakler’s widow took the stand to discuss details about the property management company and her close relationships with the deceased. As a key witness for the prosecution, she appeared extremely credible.

Quick has accused law enforcement of contaminating the crime scene and failing to investigate other potential suspects, including several people who have either been evicted or sued by RJR.

During cross examination of Mrs. Fakler, Quick will take aim at painting a different picture of the circumstances, including an affair Robert Fakler was having and numerous contentious relationships he and his wife had with disgruntled tenants.

In a recent appearance on Court TV, Denver defense lawyer and Court TV correspondent Jeffrey Wolf discussed how defense counsel may seek to push Mrs. Fakler over the edge.

“They appear to be pivoting to the business and the different people they came into contact with…after all, they manage a trailer park with hundreds of residents,” explained Wolf.

“The other thing you should never discount is a defense attorney’s ability to flip someone in a  moment,” Wolf continued. “They are going to question her and hope that at some point she gets angry—it washes away the façade of a very sympathetic witness…don’t count him [Quick] out just yet.”

Nathaniel Rowland Guilty of All Charges: Jeff Wolf Weighs in On Court TV

After less than then three hours of deliberation, a jury found Nathaniel Rowland guilty of all charges in the kidnapping and murder of 21-year-old Samantha Josephson. Quickly following the verdict, the judge passed down Rowland’s sentence: life in prison.

The judge was very vocal about his feelings toward the defendant. At one point, the judge even suggested that Rowland had “demons” inside of him that needed to be exorcised.

In a recent interview on Court TV, Denver defense lawyer and Court TV correspondent Jeffrey Wolf discussed some of the unusual behaviors taking place in the courtroom last week.

“Maybe this is the defense lawyer in me coming out,” explained Wolf, “but it really makes my blood boil…instead of comforting the family, the Josephson family, to let them know that the justice system has worked, your daughter’s murderer is going to go away for life…instead of doing that…what does he do? He tells Nathanial Rowland that he has a depraved heart, that he has demons living inside of him…The need of a judge to do that is beyond me.”

Uncharacteristically, the jury remained in the courtroom following the verdict to listen to victim impact statements, which included comments from the defendant’s family.

“He [the judge] really let Mr. Rowland have it,” continued Wolf. “But he also let Mr. Rowland’s parents have it, which I thought was a little unusual. He interrupted the mom, he yelled at the mom, he told her she was not allowed to talk about how she thought her son was innocent…”Watch the full video for extended commentary from Jeff Wolf or for more details about the case.

Lori Vallow-Daybell’s Request For Cell Phone Denied

Lori Vallow-Daybell has been incarcerated since March 2020 for felonies related to the deaths of her children: Joshua Vallow and Tylee Ryan. The children’s remains were found in Daybell’s new husband’s backyard.

Daybell’s attorney recently argued that his client should be allowed to have a cell phone, so that he can communicate with his incarcerated client without surveillance. He also requested that the video cameras in the attorney-client rooms be shut off during their private meetings.

Insisting that a cell phone would be too dangerous inside a jail, a district judge denied Daybell’s request.

In a recent interview, Denver defense attorney and Court TV correspondent Jeffrey Wolf noted that it’s been difficult for defense attorneys and clients to meet with each other during the pandemic, but inmates still have the right to privileged attorney-client meetings.

“He’s frustrated…he’s frustrated for the same reason that most defense attorneys with clients in custody right now are frustrated, he needs to see his client…and our access is very limited at a lot of these jails. Some of them will allow phone calls, but you’ll get them recorded, and if you believe the prosecutor didn’t listen to that phone call, I’ve got a beach in Idaho to sell you.”

Kueng Defense Alleges Prosecutorial Misconduct

Attorneys for three Minneapolis police officers charged in George Floyd’s death are asking a judge to dismiss the cases against their clients because of alleged misconduct by prosecutors.

Alexander Kueng’s attorney recently filed a motion accusing the state’s Attorney General of mishandling evidence and further alleges that prosecutors leaked news of a proposed plea deal by co-defendant Derek Chauvin to the media. 

In a recent interview, Denver defense lawyer and Court TV correspondent Jeffrey Wolf discusses this ambitious defense strategy. 

“The reason they’re shooting for the moon is so they can try to grab stars on their way down,” explained Wolf. “But to personally ask that these prosecutors be referred to the Minnesota bar? I can’t think of a time when this has happened. This is the Hail Mary of Hail Marys and in one of the most high-profile cases this country has ever seen…they’re not going to get this dismissal.”

Lethal Bar Fight in Tennessee

Michael Mosley is accused of fatally stabbing two men outside the Dogwood Bar in Nashville, Tennessee.

Investigators allege that Mosley made an unwanted advancement toward a female friend of the victims, and an argument between the groups got physical. Mosley’s attorney says video evidence will prove his client acted in self-defense.

However, at the time of the killings, Mosley was free on a $5,000 bond after being arrested for aggravated assault—a brutal attack of a 37-year-old woman in a Walmart; the woman is allegedly connected to an ongoing murder investigation involving the death of Mosley’s sibling.

While few have seen the video evidence, this case begs the question: was it really self-defense?

“You do have a right to defend yourself,” explained Jeffrey Wolf, Denver defense lawyer and Court TV correspondent. “That doesn’t make this any less of a tragedy, but you do have a right to defend yourself, depending on the circumstances. And none of us know those circumstances until the video comes out.”

Husband Faces Murder Trial Over Missing Wife

Would you go to work the day your spouse went missing? That’s what investigators are asking in a case involving Victoria Prokopovitz, who has been missing since 2013. Her body has never been found and she is believed to be dead. 

James Prokopovitz reported his wife missing to the Sheriff’s Office, after he returned home from work that day. According to reports, Prokopovitz made no mention of his wife’s absences at work.

Prokopovitz told police it was likely a suicide because his wife suffered from depression, but family members say his behavior after her disappearance became highly suspicious.

“At the end of the day, a jury is going to sit there and try to put themselves in his shoes. They’re going to have a tough time saying: if my wife, who was ill, and was gone without her purse and personal effects…I think most people would have a hard time saying they’d go to work, especially if your boss gets on the stand and says he didn’t have to be there that day! His defense team has their work cut out for them.”

Woman Claims Husband Forced Her to Decapitate Lover

A New Hampshire couple has been charged in the death of Jonathan Amerault. Armando Barron allegedly killed Amerault after he discovered he was having an affair with his wife Britany Barron.

Armando Barron has been charged with capital murder while engaged in the commission of a kidnapping, and his wife, Britany Barron, has been charged with falsifying physical evidence.

Amerault’s body was driven 200 miles from the crime scene, decapitated, and left wrapped in a tarp in the North Woods.

At Britany Barron’s arraignment, her defense lawyer argued that anything she did was out of fear of her husband. Detectives who detained and interviewed Britany Barron saw bruising around her eyes and marks on her neck. Armando Barron is accused of beating his wife and then using her cell phone to lure Amerault to a park.

In a recent interview, Denver defense attorney and Court TV correspondent Jeffrey Wolf was asked the obvious and difficult question: Is Britany Barron a criminal or a victim?

“I see her as a victim…She was acting in duress,” explained Wolf. “This is not somebody who had a choice about what was going to happen. She likely would have been a second body next to her boyfriend’s if she hadn’t at least played along…”

Former Deputy Sheriff Faces 44 Criminal Charges

Former Hamilton County Deputy Sheriff, Daniel Wilkey, allegedly performed an illegal body cavity search of James Myron Mitchell following a traffic stop in Tennessee. Wilkey has also been the subject of multiple lawsuits while e employed by the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office that accuse him of misconduct ranging from including false imprisonment to child molestation.

In December 2019, the county district attorney filed 44 criminal charges against Wilkey. Wilkey and Hamilton County also face nine civil lawsuits, including one class action.

In June 2020, the Hamilton County DA’s office accused the sheriff’s office of slowing down the investigation. Court filings also indicate that several dash-cam videos involving Wilkey were lost in a “catastrophic failure” by computer servers.

In a recent interview, Denver defense attorney and Court TV correspondent Jeffrey Wolf discussed how multiple charges and several alleged victims could impact Wilkey’s case.

“I don’t know that there’s a circumstance where it’s not going to shock the conscience of a jury to watch a police officer bend a man over on the side of the road and conduct a full body cavity search…the indignity of that, the cruelty of that…this case really shocks the conscience.”

Gannon Stepmom Faces Murder Charges

On January 27, 2020, Letecia Stauch reported her stepson, 11-year-old Gannon Stauch, missing from his home in Colorado Springs, CO. Approximately two months later, the boy’s remains were found in Florida.

Evidence found within the residence and inside Gannon’s bedroom include blood spatter and blood stains that penetrated the concrete below the bed. Gannon’s stepmom was arrested for his murder in South Carolina on March 2. Police believe Stauch called the police to report Gannon’s absence the same day she committed the crime.

Letecia Stauch has caused several delays in court proceedings. Stauch claims her constitutional rights were violated by investigators; she also maintains that she is not component to stand trial. Earlier this month, Stauch was ruled competent to stand trial for a second time and proceedings are expected to continue in March.

In a recent interview, Denver defense attorney and Court TV correspondent Jeffrey Wolf speaks on strategy, when asked how a defense attorney might handle a client with several conflicting stories:

“You can’t ride two horses, right?” explained Wolf. “The DAs office is going to play up the inconsistent statements…but when you get in there, you’ve got to have a theme to your case, a story to tell, and you’ve got to stick with that one story…”

Megan Boswell Charged with Murdering ‘Baby Evelyn’  

Nineteen-year-old Megan Boswell has been charged with murdering her 15-month-old daughter, Evelyn, and hiding the toddler’s body on a family member’s property in Tennessee.

Evelyn Boswell was last seen in December 2019 but wasn’t officially reported missing until mid-February 2020. Three months later, Evelyn’s body was found in a shed on property belonging to her grandmother’s ex-boyfriend.

Megan Boswell was arrested in February after giving conflicting information to detectives about her daughter’s whereabouts. Boswell now faces life in prison without parole following charges of felony murder, child abuse and neglect, and several counts of false reporting.

Boswell recently appeared in court to assert that she had “resolved issues” she was having with her representation and legal strategy. In a recent Court TV interview, Denver defense attorney and Court TV correspondent Jeffrey Wolf weighs in on the defendant’s behavior:

“She’s doing herself a very good service by being involved in her defense,” explained Wolf. “It’s something I wish more of my clients would do…because at the end of the day, this is this young women’s life…that’s what’s hanging in the balance…no one else’s.”

Pizza Delivery Murder

A complex and tragic case known as the “pizza delivery murder” recently came to a close after a jury found defendant Erica Stefanko guilty on one count of aggravated murder for the killing of Ashley Briggs. Stefanko was found not guilty on three other changes.

Prosecutors alleged Stefanko set the plot in motion in 2012, when she called Domino’s and ordered a pizza delivered to a closed business, knowing Biggs would be the delivery driver. Biggs was beaten and strangled to death by Chad Cobb when she reached her delivery’s destination.

Biggs was the mother of Stefanko’s stepdaughter, who was 7 at the time of the murder. Chad Cobb, the child’s father, has been in prison since 2013 after pleading guilty to the murder of Briggs.

Stefanko was tracked for several years following the initial murder investigation. A recently monitored phone call between Stefanko and Cobb’s mother helped break the case.

During the trial, Stefanko appeared undecided as to whether or not she would take the stand. It was obvious Stefanko’s defense lawyer didn’t want to make that play in court. Ultimately, Stefanko did not testify at trial.

Was it the right defense move to keep Stefanko off the stand?

“I think it probably was,” said Denver defense attorney and Court TV correspondent Jeffrey Wolf. “I’m not one of those lawyers that says ‘don’t put your client on the stand’…I don’t go by that…I think your client takes the stand if they need to take the stand.”

“If your jury needs a ‘why,’” Wolf continued, “like…‘how did we end up here, why is this person being falsely accused,’ you put them up there so they can get their story out there. The defense team did a good job of putting the ‘why’ out there without putting her on the stand.”

Stefanko is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 11 for sentencing.

Mark Redwine Starts Court Preceedings

Dylan Redwine was visiting his father for the Thanksgiving holiday in 2012 when he disappeared. On two separate occasions, Dylan’s remains were found within eight miles of his father’s home in Plata County, Colorado.

This week, after delays that were exacerbated by COVID-19, Mark Redwine, who was arrested for murdering his son in 2017, is expected to begin court proceedings.

Despite unfavorable forensic evidence, including Dylan’s blood in and around the Redwine property, Mark Redwine maintains his innocence, speaking openly to reporters and even pleading his case on Dr. Phil in 2013.

How does speaking to the press impact a criminal defense? “It’s obviously a defense attorney’s nightmare,” says Denver defense attorney and Court TV correspondent Jeffrey Wolf.

In a recent Court TV interview, Wolf discussed how press coverage can change the optics of a high-profile case and reviews strategies the defense might use to improve Redwine’s presentation in court.

Discussing the Mark Redwine Case

Nearly five years after a 13-year-old boy disappeared while on a court-ordered visit with his father in Colorado, Mark Redwine has been charged with murdering his son. 

According to the indictment, Dylan Redwine was visiting his father in La Plata County for the Thanksgiving holiday in 2012 when he disappeared.

In June 2013, some of Dylan’s remains were found on a road about eight miles from his father’s home, and more than two years later, hikers found Dylan’s skull one and a half miles away from where his partial remains had been found. 

In a recent interview on Court TV, Denver defense attorney and Court TV correspondent Jeffrey Wolf discusses the details of the case: “The amount of time an investigation takes is always going to be relevant. If it’s so obvious that a jury should come back guilty here, why wasn’t it so obvious to law enforcement for four and half years?”

Jeff Wolf Discusses the Chad Daybell Case

After the remains of Chad Daybell’s new wife’s two children were unearthed in his rural Idaho yard, suspicion over the death of his former wife, Tammy Daybell, may find its way into Chad Daybell’s court proceedings. Investigators are looking into the nature of Tammy Daybell’s sudden death last October due to allegedly natural causes. She was 49 years old.

According to Denver defense attorney and Court TV correspondent Jeffrey Wolf, “Instead of changing venue like they probably should, what the judge will do is ask if people can set it aside, and can you be fair even though you know about [Tammy]…that’s the big problem here, this small town is going to know everything…”

Oprah’s Involvement For Breonna Taylor

Oprah Winfrey is making her voice heard in Louisville, Kentucky, with 26 billboards demanding justice for Breonna Taylor, who was shot and killed by local police earlier this year. Taylor’s family is pursuing a civil case against the officers who, without warning, raided Taylor’s home. Can the officers be held criminally responsible?

“With the extreme political and social pressure surrounding this case, if there’s a way to file [criminal] charges, they’re going to do it,” said Denver defense attorney and Court TV correspondent Jeffrey Wolf. “Because justice is being demanded and not by just Oprah…we need to take action…”

Former Maxim Model Murder Case

Former MAXIM model, Kelsey Turner, faces murder charges for the death of Dr. Thomas Burchard, a 71-year-old psychiatrist. According to police, Burchard had an intimate relationship with Turner and paid rent on a Las Vegas home where Turner lived with her boyfriend and roommate. Domestic violence charges were filed against Turner’s boyfriend about a month before the couple allegedly killed Burchard. Was Turner under the violent control of her boyfriend when the murder took place? 

“That’s exactly what they’re going to say,” said Denver defense attorney and Court TV correspondent Jeffrey Wolf. “This is the best defense for her, and it’s also very likely what happened.”

Denver defense attorney and Court TV correspondent Jeffrey Wolf weighs in following the release of new body camera footage taken during the arrest of George Floyd in Minneapolis. At what point in the arrest did it go from lawful to unlawful?

“He is begging for mercy, begging for some humanity the entire encounter, and he doesn’t get it,” said Wolf. “Essentially, he’s mugged by officers…for an alleged counterfeit twenty-dollar bill. There isn’t a time when it turns criminal…this is criminal from start to finish.”

Defense attorney and Court TV correspondent Jeffrey Wolf responds to the death of 8-year-old Secoriea Turner who was shot to death on July 5 in Atlanta, Georgia.

“These riots are the voice of the unheard,” said Wolf. “We need to see local leaders step up and do something.”

Denver defense attorney and Court TV correspondent Jeffrey Wolf discusses military misconduct following the tragic murder of Vanessa Guillen, a Fort Hood soldier who had alleged sexual harassment from a superior.

“One in four female service members are being sexually harassed or assaulted, and they’re doing nothing about it,” Wolf said.

Julia Leanna Tomlin, the mother of Noah Tomlin whose body was found in July near a trash incinerator, will be charged with murder in her son’s death.

Defense attorney and Court TV correspondent Jeffrey Wolf weighs in on the complexities of parenting, drug and alcohol addiction, and economic inequality.

“The resources aren’t there…the system is the problem here, said Wolf.

Mary Kay Letourneau, an infamous teacher who raped a male student and later married her victim, is dead at 58.

Denver defense lawyer and Court TV correspondent Jeffrey Wolf reiterates why the age of consent exists and settles the panel’s discussion: “It’s not a love story.”

Kind, Knowledgeable, and No-Nonsense Attorney

I hired Mr. Wolf to represent me in my efforts to obtain a permanent civil protection order against the person who committed a crime against me. This person is currently incarcerated for the crime but is being considered for parole. Due to Mr. Wolf’s criminal law background, and his outstanding attorney ratings, I believed him to be the best legal professional to successfully represent my safety and security concerns in court. I was not wrong!!

Mr. Wolf expertly and succinctly prepared the protection order paperwork on my behalf, prepared me for my court appearance in a direct and as complete a manner as possible, and successfully represented me in court. He also expressed sincere kindness towards me from the day I hired him to the conclusion of my case. Another attorney without a criminal law background may have been able to have successfully obtained a permanent civil protection order on my behalf; however, I was unwilling to take that chance given the criminal background of my case. I will be forever grateful to Mr. Wolf for his successful representation of me, and for making my safety and security one of his top priorities.

Very confident and competent attorney! I am very happy with Jeff

I contacted Jeff Wolf after I had some family issues that also carried potential criminal charges. I spoke with him as soon as i realized how severe the situation could be and he offered great legal advice that lead to me bringing him on as my personal attorney. The charges against me were dropped and I never had to go to trial but throughput the entire process Jeff was in touch and taking care of everything I needed. I am very happy with his services and would certainly work with him again if I was in the situation.

Professional. Attentive. Experienced. Successful.

I was referred to Jeff by one of my friends who was recently represented by Wolf Law in his DUI case; I will be forever grateful for that recommendation. Jeff made this extremely stressful process feel much more manageable from start to finish. He was always responsive and highly communicative, even throughout my barrage of anxiety driven questioning. He was a maestro in the courtroom and was able to get me the absolute minimum penalties. He even got certain areas of my very unique case dismissed – saving me thousands of dollars in the process. While I hope I never have to, I will surely be recommending Wolf Law as DUI representation to any of my friends and family in the future.

My Son Was in Trouble, Jeff Wolf was His Advocate

When my son got in trouble, I was referred to Jeff Wolf by a friend. He was immediately responsive, calling me back within an hour. We set up a meeting for a couple of days later with no obligation, and when we met he helped us understand the many aspects of my son’s case. We retained him and were grateful for his obvious comfort with the legal system and ability to help us navigate it. Throughout, he advocated for my son but also was stern with him, very clearly communicating the severity of his situation. We ended up with a deferred sentence and are so glad we had Mr. Wolf’s help. He is very reliable and accessible; it was reassuring to know we had him in our court.

— Lisa

Professional, Thorough and Successful

Jeff handled my case with expertise and professionalism. He examined my case quickly and accurately then presented me with sound options and advice going forward. Very satisfied with the almost immediate responses to phone calls and emails. Pleased with the outcome Jeff was able to provide in my case.

Hit and Run Charges

I had multiple charges stacked against me by the CSP office for a questionable “hit and run” in my office parking lot. Jeff reviewed the video evidence and was able to get the charges reduced from 26 points against my driver’s license down to 4. He was also able to get the fines reduced to the minimum amount! Jeff was extremely knowledgeable and helped ease my fears each time we spoke and explained the whole process and what to expect along the way. Thank you, Jeff!

Case Dismissed

I met with a probation violation complaint for a DUI in Summit County. I live outside of Colorado, in Boston. I felt hopeless. I felt like my only option was to travel out to Colorado, give myself up and just see what happened. That would have meant jail and thus loss of job and loss of house.

I called Jeff and talked to him about my case. His experience in this area put me at ease. Jeff guided me through everything I needed to do to see this case through. The greatest thing is that I never had to leave home to clear this up. At the end of the day Jeff cleared my case (Case Dismissed) without me ever leaving Boston. Jeff is incredible, and his team is equally amazing.

I can’t thank Wolf Law enough for what they have done for me. I have a new outlook on life thanks to Jeff.

Unfortunately, I have required an attorney more than a few times. That said, Jeff is the most intelligent, competent, compassionate, committed, aggressive representation to be found, without a doubt. Facing a felony DUI, no proof of insurance, careless driving and cruelty to animals (my dog gets more love than most people in the world), followed by two DURs (driving under revocation), I pretty much felt I was screwed. After hiring and firing two attorneys, I called Jeff. Note: Do your research before you waste money, and do whatever it takes to get the money for proper representation. I met with Jeff based on his peer reviews, client reviews, education and experience; all of them positive and 100 percent accurate. Twenty minutes into the consultation, all my built-up stress and anxiety had been significantly reduced. I thought my driving privileges were over for a while. Jeff showed me what I needed to do to get a restricted license, which I was able to do within a few days. Following that he made two DURs, jail time offenses, turn into one zero-point traffic violation. Then, one year to the date of my run-in with the law, Jeff and I went to trial. The no insurance charge was dropped. I was insured. The cruelty to animals charge was dropped after the first day of trial. On the second day, I was found not guilty of DUI, DWAI and careless driving. The time, effort and determination Jeff put in was clear, and his strategies and trial skills were clearly superb. No better counsel can be found in my opinion.

Outstanding Law Firm

Wolf Law was very helpful in fulfilling my personal needs. Colleen Kelley knew how to approach my case and made me feel better about my results in the bargain. I would recommend her to anyone with criminal trouble; she is an amazing lawyer.
