Exploring The Legal Process
Hello everyone! I'm Gael Phillips. It is nice to meet you. I'm here to talk to you about criminal laws, court proceedings and legal repercussions. I feel that sharing this knowledge is important, as many people do not realize how the legal process works.
My first, and only, scrape with the law left me shaken. I did not know what to expect throughout the entire case, so I felt unprepared for the outcome. I hope to share my knowledge with people who are in need of support throughout the legal process. I will also post stories full of information about past legal cases for an idea about how the law works. The legal process doesn't need to be scary and mysterious. Sharing stories can give others the insight they need about their situation. Thanks for visiting, come back often!

When someone hires a criminal defense attorney, one of the first facts the lawyer has to present to them is how difficult it is to truly "beat" a criminal charge. One study indicated that 94% of state and 97% of federal criminal cases will end in a plea agreement if full-on charges are brought. This may leave you wondering what it actually takes to beat a charge.
Don't Get Charged
Those arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) face numerous forms of punishment. Just being arrested can bring about the loss of driving privileges before you are even convicted. The goal of some measures is punitive in nature. You might, for example, be ordered to pay a fine and go to jail for a certain period of time. Increasingly, however, some are ordered to take part in educational actions with the hope of prevention and intervention.
Grandparents are the closest relatives to a child other than their parent, so naturally, it's also safe to assume that many of the rights of grandparents closely resemble those of the parent. Unfortunately, it's not always the case. Grandparent rights are not always as solid as you might think.
Back of the Line
Grandparents often feel just as entitled to their grandchildren as their child's parents. However, with many custodial issues, grandparents are at the back of the line.
When some people think about a will, they instantly picture a document which outlines how they want to divide up their assets after they are deceased. Although this is definitely one type of will, there is another version that might be even more important: The living will. A living will includes an advanced directive which details how you want your finances and health to be handled in case you become incapacitated while still alive.
You're driving along the highway when suddenly you see bright flashing lights in your rearview mirror. Uh oh. You're about to be pulled over for a traffic violation. While this situation is obviously never fun, you should know that it's not yet a given that you will have points added to your license. Here's what you should do during and after the traffic start to help you fight the ticket in traffic court.
