Accused of driving dangerously while drunk? Learn your options

You didn't think that you had done anything wrong, but an officer pulled you over and claimed you had been weaving in and out of traffic. They started accusing you of racing another vehicle that had been driving the same route in the next lane. You had no idea what the officer was talking about.

Probation may be an option after conviction

When people get in trouble with the law, the one consequence that may concern them most is going to jail. Jail time means being away from your loved ones, time in which you cannot work to earn money or further your career, and separation from everything that is familiar to you. This is why many who are convicted of crimes hope the court will sentence them to probation instead.

What are some good reasons to work with a defense attorney?

You know that the fact that you're facing a criminal charge is serious, so you've looked into working with an attorney. You also know that you have the potential to represent yourself, which costs less and, you believe, is a possible option.

What do you do if you accidentally shoplifted and were caught?

You didn't intend to be where you are now, facing criminal charges for a crime you didn't even plan on committing. The store you went into has a strict policy for pursing shoplifters, but you didn't mean to shoplift. You were carrying around items you want to try on, and you had tried on some. You picked up those items to put them back and forgot about one that was slung over your bag. Now, you're facing charges and are frustrated with the entire situation.

Build doubt to reduce the chances of a conviction

When you've gotten into trouble with the law, the best thing you can do for yourself is work to develop a strong defense. In most kinds of criminal cases, it has to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt that you participated in a crime. If you can create enough doubt, then the case should move in your favor.

Don't let a DUI charge ruin your holiday season

It's that time of year again where you can find a crazy mash-up in the stores of everything from Halloween treats to Christmas gifts. It's also that time of year where you can pretty much count on the fact that there will be feasting, parties, plenty of alcohol to go around at every event -- and plenty of extra police officers patrolling for suspected drunk drivers.
