Defense Lawyers – Fiction Versus the Reality

By |October 16th, 2019|Criminal Defense|0 Comments

People have perceptions of criminal defense mostly through TV, film, and literature. There’s the honorable Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird, who fights for a just cause even though his client is found guilty.

By |September 18th, 2019|Criminal Defense|0 Comments

There’s an old saying that tragedy is something awful happening to you, while comedy is something awful happening to somebody else. That goes for the law, too. If pranks and “jokes” cause someone else physical harm, there’s a good chance that you may be violating the law. If odd behavior seems quirky to you, it [...]

Consent Standards in Rape and Sexual Assault Cases

By |September 10th, 2019|Sex Crimes|0 Comments

Most laws, and most criminal cases, revolve around the question – where do we draw the line between acceptable behavior and non-acceptable behavior? That question is rarely black and white. There are often gray areas in-between for different reasons: the law isn’t clear, so there are exceptions to every rule. Sometimes, the legislature changes the [...]
