Emily Dahm Takes novel approach to a difficult sentencing hearing – making a mitigation video of her client’s family and community for the court

Creativity is a critical element of an excellent defense. Emily Dahm used a novel approach to tackle a difficult sentencing hearing. After her client was convicted of a cell phone robbery and was facing 15 years in prison, she hired Silicon Valley DeBug to shoot a mitigation video of her client’s wife, young son, and church community. She then showed the video at the sentencing hearing, resulting in the judge ordering the lowest possible prison sentence.
