How can I help with domestic violence issues?

Domestic violence is a serious threat to countless American citizens, including Florida residents. Many people think that domestic violence is only a women's issue, and while it may be true that women are the majority of domestic violence victims, there are certainly men who are victims too. Some children face domestic abuse as well, regardless of their gender, and domestic abuse can cause serious trauma to a child's development. This is why it is so important to do whatever possible to stop domestic violence.

We can help you defend against drunk driving charges

Continuing our discussion of how you can defend yourself even in seemingly impossibly incriminating circumstances, let's talk about drunk driving. Florida law takes DUI offenses very seriously. Even if it is your first offense, you will probably have your license suspended if you are convicted, and you could even face jail time. Of course, if a law enforcement official pulls you over and you fail a field sobriety test or the Breathalyzer reads too high, you may think that you are surely done for; this is not true.

Extenuating circumstances can affect murder charges

When you are accused of a serious crime, you may wonder if there is any chance of avoiding jail time, especially if the evidence is heavily stacked against you. Last week, we talked about some of the options your can employ to defend against drug charges, offering some viable options even if you are arrested with drugs in your possession. It may surprise you to learn that similar options can be used in other serious charges, including murder.

Options for drug defense

If you have been charged with a drug crime, such as possession or abuse, you may feel that the trouble is just beginning. Depending on the circumstances under which you were arrested and/or charged, it may seem like your chances of being convicted are assured before you even make a plea, but this is not the case. In Florida, just like every other state in America, you are still innocent until proven guilty, and you can make a case in your defense that might see you acquitted.
