Hallett and Donahue Earn Huge Not Guilty Verdict in Manslaughter Trial!

December 2021

http:// trial attorneys Tom Hallett and Ben Donahue are thrilled for client Shawn Purvis who was found not guilty of Workplace Manslaughter by a jury on December 9 following a long trial.  A more serious Class A Manslaughter charge didn't even make it to the jury as the defense team argued successfully to have that charge dismissed by the Judge at the close of evidence.  The trial victory marks the end of a long and difficult road for Mr. Purvis as the case arose from the tragic job site death of his friend and brother, Alan Loignon.  You can read about the stunning legal result here:http://
