Discussing assault and battery charges

Assault and battery charges are two distinct crimes that refer to similar things. Assault is when there is the threat of violence. Battery is when actual contact and physical harm is committed. These are the definitions in Florida -- they are slightly different in Alabama, where three different degrees of assault can be charged by the police.

Misdemeanors: serious crimes despite the perception

Being convicted of a crime is a massive blow to anyone's future. You may think that a state or federal felony are the only "serious" crimes that you need to worry about, but that simply isn't true. Even misdemeanors can have a profound effect on a person's life, and it is important for anyone accused of a crime to take the matter seriously.

Drunk driving charges carry massive penalties

Getting behind the wheel of a car after you have consumed alcohol can lead to an arrest. The charge of drunk driving is a serious one, and it can claim many of your liberties and cost you thousands and thousands of dollars. From license suspension to increased insurance costs, and a criminal record to court fees and jail time, there are simply far too many consequences to a DUI.

Tax fraud denotes a serious and intentional act

In just a couple of weeks, most people in the United States will have to have filed their tax returns to the Internal Revenue Service. Some people may have received extensions, but most will need to have them mailed by April 18. For those who are just getting to their filings, it is understandable to be a little stressed out about this task and, under such stress, it is conceivable that you will make a mistake or two.

Challenging a will - difficult but not impossible

You have heard stories from your friends and seen them in the news. A loved one passes away, and when it comes time to read the will, the family finds out that the decedent left all assets to a caretaker or a financial advisor, or even to just one heir. While challenging a will is tough, it is not impossible.
