A client was convicted of several aggravated theft charges in a lower court, and asked Gounaris Abboud, LPA to help him appeal the case. The client had been ordered to pay nearly $166,000 in restitution. The client was not arguing that he was innocent of his crime, but thought that the restitution that he was required to pay was too high.

The attorneys at Gounaris Abboud, LPA represented him in his appeal, arguing that the court abused its discretion when ordering such a high amount to be paid. The Second District Court of Appeal agreed with Gounaris Denslow Abboud about the unjust amounts, and removed $106,400.78 of the trial court restitution amount. This made the restitution much more affordable for our client, helping him to avoid serious financial difficulty in the future.
