In 2010, Bath & Edmonds is hired to represent a local man charged with arson. During his cooperation with the police the client adamantly denied any involvement and maintained he was innocent. The client advised the firm that he would not accept any plea offer. Over the next two years Tom and Tricia Bath aggressively litigated this matter. In the summer of 2012, the matter was set for a jury trial in December 2012. Approximately three days before trial the prosecutors dismissed the charges.
