Utah Woman's Case Shows Benefits of Plea Deals

When charged with a crime, exploring the various criminal defense strategies often proves useful. In some cases, individuals may choose to take advantage of offered plea deals, as they could allow them to reach agreeable outcomes to their cases that they may otherwise not have achieved. This option was recently utilized in a Utah case.

Important information if you drive through Utah on spring break

If you plan to travel Utah roadways during spring break, you'll want to know about this state's traffic laws and regulations. In fact, familiarizing yourself with traffic laws in every destination location you'll encounter typically makes for a good driving habit. Unfortunately, police officers interrupt many college student vacations when they pull drivers over and charge them with drunk driving. Going to jail obviously isn't on your spring break itinerary. Thankfully, ways to avoid the problem exist.

A North Texas juror who was booted from a trial has been cited for contempt after trying to "friend" the defendant on Facebook.

What is White Collar Crime

White Collar Crime - An Overview 

Crimes that do not involve physical violence, and that relate largely to financial matters, are often called "white collar crimes." White collar crimes involve most of the same legal principles as do other crimes, and people charged with white collar crimes have the same rights and protections as defendants accused of other crimes. On the other hand, white collar offenses are often very complex, and involve numerous complicated legal and factual issues. The possible penalties include fines, prison sentences, and criminal forfeiture. If you have been charged with a white collar crime, it is essential that you seek legal counsel from an experienced criminal defense attorney at once so that you can preserve your rights and protect your future.

Hit & Run

Lately it seems there has been a great deal of hit and runs in the news. Hit & Run charges can either be filed as either a misdemeanor or a felony. The deciding factor is the amount of property damage and the seriousness of injury. If a serious injury is sustained by a passenger or other party, felony charges can be filed.

  • Brian attended mediation with us today and he was a rockstar. He was very knowledgeable and thorough. I don't know what we would have done without his well-informed counsel and the way he stood up for us. He maintained a calm and authoritative demeanor, even in the presence of the 4 other attorneys on the other "sides". We will be recommending him to anyone who needs a family law attorney, and we'll be choosing him if we ever need one again! Read more...
