A Thank You from Paul M.
In June of 2013 I had two locations searched by SFPD's vice/narcotics teams. One location had 11 lights and over 100 plants and the second location had 72 lights and well over 1000 plants.
A minor amount of drugs was found at one location as well. I was charged with 7 felonies. At the time I was scared, overwhelmed, and completely demoralized, as was my fiancee. I contacted Kali for help on the advice of my father, who has over 40 years of experience as a criminal defense attorney in San Francisco.
Kali was able to secure a reduced bail for me of 6% rather than the standard 10%. Throughout the court proceedings, Kali was like a honey badger with her motions, she was always ready to submit a new motion at every single court appearance. Kali kept the DA rocked back on his heels and on the defensive at every court appearance, because he didn't keep up with the motions Kali filed.
As an attorney, Kali has great communication, she was either available or responded promptly. My fiancee had many questions and concerns and Kali worked with both of us together, and never treated us as if we were infringing on her time.
When all is said and done, I ended up with 1 felony that can be reduced to a misdemeanor after 1 year, no jail time, 2 years probation, forfeiture of my growing equipment and $2,000 that was seized. All in all, I was extremely pleased with the results. I cannot speak highly enough of Kali's emotional support.
A Thank You from Jeanne M.
Kali Grech represented my daughter last year & I was favorably impressed with her skill & knowledge. She was very well informed of all the latest changes to the laws regarding this case.
Her professionalism was obvious in every one of her many dealings with the court. She was available at all hours & willing to answer any questions that my daughter had. Having grown up with an attorney in my family I knew what should be expected from a representative in a case of this importance. Kali exceeded all expectations. I couldn't have asked for better representation for my daughter.
Thank you Kali & everyone at Pier 5. You are appreciated.
A Thank You from Ryan O.
I would confidently recommend Kali to anybody looking for an attorney in her field of expertise. I was referred to pier 5 after I had hired another attorney who neither had the capability or the drive to handle my case properly. Kali was quite the opposite. Through hard work and skill she achieved a very positive outcome for me. I am very thankful.
A Thank You from Neil S.
A good friend referred me to Kali Grech and told me she handles complex legal situations. I came to Kali after two failed attempts with my first attorney. I wasn't sure of all my options or how to move forward with my case. Kali broke down all the legal issues in my language and made sure I got it before she moved on. She guided me through a variety of options for me to seek justice, and she suggested the best strategy for getting what I needed from the courts.
Kali was successful at getting me what I needed from the courts. She advocated from a place of understanding and compassion. Not only did we win my case; we set a precedent in the county.
I firmly believe Kali is an exceptional attorney and will deliver a performance exceeding expectations. Consider yourself fortunate having Kali on your side.
A Thank You From Malcom
I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for the great information you gave us during the Oaksterdam University class I attended on December 4, 2010. I live in Tennessee but the basic legal materials you covered were very enlightening.
Have a great day and thanks for all you do for this important cause. Hopefully one day, my state will adopt legislation and we too can have ‘safer’ access to our medicine.
