Person accused of criminal activity has right to criminal defense

The drug crisis appears to be improving in many parts of the country, but it does remain a serious problem. While the number of drug-related deaths may be declining in some areas, Louisiana remains on high alert in its fight against illegal drugs. Anyone charged with crimes in relation to the drug crisis is entitled to a criminal defense.

Family law professionals can help with child support issues

Reaching a divorce settlement in Louisiana when young children are involved can be a complicated undertaking. It can be facilitated with the assistance of a professional well-versed in family law. The settlement may include a child support order. While agreements may be readily reached in negotiations, failure to pay child support is an all too common occurrence and can result in the suspension of one's driver's license, among other penalties.

What should you do with your family home in a Louisiana divorce?

Adults potentially considering a divorce will often focus their planning and strategy on specific wishes or assets. For many couples, the possession that spouses most hope to retain is the family home. That makes sense, as real estate in Louisiana is typically quite valuable.

Improper medical treatment can result in personal injury claims

Children can be rambunctious, active risk takers. It is in their nature and on occasion it will result in an accidental injury that requires medical attention. Such was the case of a 2-year-old in Louisiana. The child had been playing on a trampoline and fell and broke his arm. He was taken to the hospital and treated, but the outcome led to a personal injury case.

Distracted driving can contribute to car accidents

Fatal traffic accidents are tragic. They are made even more so when the life of a child is lost as a result of an accident. Holiday weekends sadly increase the likelihood of such accidents occurring as families head out on the roads and add to already congested traffic conditions in Louisiana. All of this combines to increase the chances of being involved in car accidents.
