Drunk driving charges filed after crash into light pole

When a driver in Florida is arrested for impaired driving, it sometimes comes along with a fear of the unknown along with shame and a tarnished reputation -- particularly if it is a first offense. Furthermore, the impact of a drunk driving conviction on a driver's bank balance can be severe. However, the burden of proof is on the prosecutors who will have to prove guilt to the charges in court and beyond a reasonable doubt. This is where the skills of an experienced DUI defense attorney come in.

Juvenile crimes increase during hot Florida summers

With rising temperatures and the rapid approach of summer in Florida, juvenile mischief will likely be rampant.

Can a drug conviction make you lose your financial aid?

If you are the parent of a college student, you may expect that your son or daughter will spread his or her wings and blow off some steam every now and then after leaving home to live alone for the first time. However, there is a fine line between attending a college party or two and finding yourself facing a serious drug-related criminal charge, and when the latter happens, it can present collateral consequences your son or daughter must deal with.

Juvenile crimes: What is disorderly conduct?

Nobody wants a criminal record, even if it is just a disorderly conduct charge. Florida teenagers can get up to mischief, and before they know it, they might be accused of something like public annoyance. While it might seem insignificant at the time, any charges for juvenile crimes can have severe consequences that might include fines, detention and more.
