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!

An annulment is not going to work for all situations.
Everyone has an opinion about everything, including what you should do if you're ever stopped for a DUI. Not everyone's advice will be sound, however, and following it may actually make things worse and guarantee you'll go to jail. Here are two pieces of counsel you should avoid following if you want a fighting chance at staying out of jail.
Refuse to Do the Breathalyzer Test
The Constitution guarantees people the right to not incriminate themselves in a crime, so it would appear to make sense to refuse to submit to breathalyzer testing when you're pulled over for a DUI.
You've heard the television commercial that says, "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas," and while that may be true for a lot of things, it's not always true for DUI charges. If you get charged with a DUI while on vacation in Vegas, it will likely follow you home due to the Driver License Compact, which is used by most states to exchange information regarding the traffic violations and license suspensions of non-residents.
One piece of estate planning advice you always hear is to make a will. However, were you aware that there are a couple types of wills available to you? Know the difference between them so you can decide on which one is best.
Statutory wills are considered to be the simplest wills that can be made. They often follow a form where you practically fill in the blanks, since the form is typically structured in a way that will work for anybody or someone with a simple estate.
