There is often more to a case than what initially gets reported. Sometimes it may be what appears to be a settlement that seems excessive and other times it may be the unreported or under-reported facts. One of the cases where the media under reported the facts happened when California commissioners denied parole for a former San Francisco attorney. Marjorie Knoller is serving a life sentence for a dog mauling case that tested the state’s murders laws. Former attorney Knoller is serving 15 years to life for second degree murder after her dogs attacked and killed their 33 year old neighbor Diane Whipple in 2001.

This was Knoller’s first chance at parole during her second term in prison. She was previously freed in 2004 when her sentence was reduced to involuntary manslaughter and she was sent back to prison when another court reinstated her tougher conviction. The court decided Knoller acted with conscious disregard for human life when her 140 pound dog escaped and killed Whipple.

Never in my life did I think I would recommend an attorney. Somehow God sent this angel of an attorney to assist me in my personal injury lawsuit. I was told by lawyers in Bakersfield that my lawsuit was frivolous because there was money in it.

I live in Elk Grove where we don’t always have a lot of choices. Lawyers are one area where we have few good choices. I wanted to work with a local law firm after my motorcycle accident, and I chose Glenn Guenard and Ross Bozarth.
