Denial Reversed Without Appeal!
This was a first for me. Client hired me after waiting several months of getting nowhere with his permit. Within two weeks of hiring me, he received a denial letter. He was upset as was I. No one even called me to explain what the problem was.
I faxed a letter over to the Chief right away. A few minutes later, one of the nicest detectives in the world (who is also a part-time) lawyer called me back. He explained that his hands are tied and that the State Police are denying people left and right. He also said that, thanks to Obama, he is swamped. He also apologized for not calling me before sending out the denial letter but it just slipped his mind.
While he was really nice, there was nothing he could do for me since he is just taking orders. So, I called the Assistant Prosecutor and discussed it with him. Again, another really cool person to deal with but then again, I have a good relationship with everyone at his office that I know. We worked it out and the denial was reversed within a matter of minutes. No appeal needed.
