Happy New Year

This New Year's Eve the state of Tennessee will have several "no refusal" check points.  That means that if you are under suspicion of DUI you will be required to submit to a breath or blood test.  While a breath test can be challenged, the challenges or a blood test are more stringent.  A DUI charge can have severe consequences to your pocketbook and your record.  Be smart and take a taxi or a designated driver.

Holiday Schedule

I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season.  Please enjoy the time with your family and friends, and be careful.  This shouldn't be a time for stress and materialistic endevours, but giving and thankfulness.  If the last few weeks have shown anything, it is that every day we have is a good one.  I am spending time with my family this Christmas and will be out of the office until December 29, 2012.  I am still available by phone and email.  If you are arrested or facing charges, please contact me and I will help you through the process.  Have a safe and happy holiday!

Tis the Season to Procrastinate

As I sat in court today, I heard the familiar refrain that you always hear this time of year ..."Judge I don't have an attorney hired.  Its Christmas."  People want to buy gifts and food during the holiday season, however the worst thing you can do is prolong your case by waiting to hire an attorney.  Every time your case is reset, the court costs rise on your case.  It may seem like you are saving money by not having to pay an attorney in December, but in the end it will cost you more money.  Do not procrastinate.  Give yourself the gift of legal representation if you have a case.  It will be worth it in the end.
