Mr. Hisim has had nearly 150 jury trials in his career, 50 of which have been murder trials. As a defense attorney, he has achieved a “not guilty” verdict in many serious jury trials, as well as complete jury acquittals for four different clients charged with murder.
Mr. Hisim’s first criminal trial as a defense attorney was a case of Attempted Murder in Montgomery County Circuit Court. The client had been previously convicted with other counsel, and his case was remanded to circuit court for a new trial. The case ended after a week-long trial with a total acquittal, causing the State’s eyewitness to fall from his chair as the verdict was read in the courtroom. (See the article from the Washington Post about this stunning acquittal).
