Elroy Phillips v. United States

SHARE: Share on Facebook Share on Facebook Share on Google+

Seitles & Litwin successfully overturned Mr. Phillips’s conviction and sentence on appeal for a drug conspiracy.  Mr. Phillips was convicted after a trial by jury in the Southern District of Florida based on the now undisputed false testimony of a corrupt West Palm Beach Police Officer. Mr. Phillips came to Marc Seitles and Ashley Litwin after he had uncovered evidence that the controlled buy the officer claimed to have done with Mr. Phillips, never happened.  Seitles & Litwin represented Mr. Phillips for years, first on a Motion to Vacate, then on Appeal in front of the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals, and then on a re-sentencing, finally getting four of Mr. Phillips’s five convictions overturned and convincing the court to reduce Mr. Phillips’s sentence to a sentence of almost time served.
