Helping juveniles take advantage of their legal rights

It is most common to think of adults when one thinks of criminal charges and those most likely to be facing them. Generally speaking, we attach the faces of young adults or middle-aged individuals to the reports of domestic violence or drug charges, but it is very possible for younger individuals to face these charges as well. The law may treat these younger suspects slightly differently, but age does not omit you from being a potential suspect in a criminal case.

Important legal defense from white collar crime accusations

White collar crimes are serious accusations, and they should be treated as such by those who are accused of them. In an ideal world, simply being innocent would be enough to avoid concern about criminal accusations, but unfortunately courts can only make the best decisions based on the information presented to them.

Understanding these different types of abuse can help you avoid being wrongfully accused or convicted.

Is sexting illegal?

Over the last few years, thanks to advances in cellular phone technology and functionality, there has been an increase in people taking and sending lewd or suggestive photographs of themselves to others.
