As a lead felony prosecutor, he was also responsible for supervising and assisting three other Assistant State Attorneys that worked under him.

After leaving the State Attorney’s Office, Mr. DiRenzo decided to put his knowledge and experience to work defending those charged with criminal offenses.

  • Aggravated Assault – No Charges Were Filed
    Charges: The defendant was arrested for Aggravated Assault with a Firearm a third degree felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison. The charge also carries a 3 year minimum mandatory prison sentence under the 10-20-LIFE law. Summary: The defendant and his friend received a call from an old girlfriend to pick her up that she was in trouble. When they went to the residence to pick her up, the three of them were confronted by four guys asking where they were taking the girl. During the confrontation, the victim alleged that the defendant pulled a firearm out and waived it in a threatening manner. The defendant and the other two individuals left the scene. The victim called the police and the defendant was arrested hours later with the firearm in his car. The defendant retained our firm the day after his arrest. We were able to secure three affidavits from the defendant’s friend, the girl the defendant picked up, and the victim’s friend who was next to the victim when the firearm was waived saying that the defendant did not pull a gun out at the scene. Also, we attained a recording of the victim asking the defendant to give him $3,000.00 and he would drop all the charges. As a result of our investigation, the state did not file any charges against our client.
