There are different degrees of assault and battery that can be charged depending on the severity of the crime.
Domestic violence charges arise when there is suspicion of spousal abuse, harassment, physical abuse, or any other type of abuse within a domestic relationship. Domestic violence charges will appear on the defendant's criminal record, which can affect his or her ability to keep a job or find a place to live.

Driving While Intoxicated
When it comes to charges of driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI), you can lose your driving privileges, pay heavy fines, and spend time in jail if convicted. Based on the state's implied consent law, you can also lose your license for failing to consent to a chemical test. If you are arrested based on a suspicion of DUI / DWI, call us today.
Some of the most common types of drug crimes include possession, distribution, cultivation, and possession with intent to distribute. If you are facing charges of any type of drug crime, we encourage you to take legal action by scheduling a case evaluation with our firm. You can face penalties that are based on the severity of the crime, the amount of drug, and the type of drug.
If you have been cited for a traffic ticket, you have options other than pleading guilty. You can fight your ticket by pleading not guilty and going to court. After being charged with a traffic violation, you should be aware of your options for fighting it; consult a lawyer before you pay a ticket.
