Adv. Erez is an expert in representing suspects and defendants in all types of criminal offences, from the police arrest through to proceedings in the various courts.
Over the years, he represented defendants in complex and highly-publicized affairs, including a case where an independent electrician was accused of indecent act in a 10 years old girl while working in her family’s house. The defendant was convicted by the Petach Tikva Magistrate Court but following an appeal by Adv. Erez to the district court, the defendant acquitted due to contradiction in the complaining minor’s version, which prevented a conviction beyond reasonable doubt.
Another case that was handled by Adv. Erez was the representation of a minor who was imprisoned in the Ofek Prison, and another minor who was imprisoned in the same prison accused him of rape. Adv. Erez managed to prove that his client didn’t commit the described actions and acquitted him from the severe offence.
In another case Adv. Erez represented a defendant who was charged with the importing of 20 liters of rape drug to Israel. Despite the amount of the imported material, Adv. Erez managed to convince the Tel Aviv District Court the in light of his client’s personal circumstances, a punishment of community service works would suffice, in spite of the State Attorney’s demand for several years of actual jail time.
Adv. Erez represents mandatory-service, reserve and career soldiers, from military police interrogations up to military court proceedings. Where necessary, he also helps his clients receive an exemption from service for justified causes. Throughout his years of practice, Alon represented defendants in complex affairs including an affair where a decorated officer (Major) was accused of flagrant sexual harassment of dozens of his subordinates. Adv. Erez managed to prove during the legal proceedings, that the pressure the officer experienced in his military service led to the emergence of a severe mental disorder. It was also proven that a blatantly sexual discourse was common in the unit. Owing to the devoted representation of Adv. Erez in this case, most of the charges against the officer were removed.
Another prominent affair which was accompanied by Adv. Erez revolved around a Lieutenant who was accused by a subordinate of forced indecent act. Adv. Erez got to the bottom of the affair and managed to acquit the officer of this severe offence so that he was accused only in inappropriate conduct, and continues his service to this very day.
Another case which received significant media attention revolved around an infantry fighter from the Golani division who was accused of pillage during armed conflict in the Zuk Eitan Operation. Following Adv. Erez’s arguments, the Military Appeals Court determined that in light of numerous failures in the investigation, the soldier must be acquitted from the offence of pillaging on grounds of abuse of process, and be convicted only in theft. Consequently, and despite the Military Prosecution demand for actual jail time, the soldier eventually spent time only in military works (the military equivalent of community service).
