Attorneys help clients develop strong criminal defense strategies

Indiana domestic violence consequences

Domestic violence is considered an extremely serious matter in the state of Indiana. These types of charges may also be referred to as domestic battery or domestic assault. An incident is considered domestic in nature when the parties involved are either family members or household members. If such a relationship does not exist, such as when parties are just dating, then charges will be considered regular battery or assault instead of domestic.

U.S. Supreme Court to decide important defendant rights

The U.S. Bill of Rights is intended to protect the rights of Americans in criminal prosecutions. However, some of its guarantees do not apply to the states.

Any criminal conviction can have long-term consequences. Even though a criminal defense can reduce charges, a person may still face catastrophic financial and personal penalties.

Rental car rights drive forward

Most people in Evansville have been pulled over by police while driving, or know someone who has. Sometimes these traffic stops lead to criminal charges. In such situations, one's criminal defense strategy often depends on what happened when the police stopped the defendant in their vehicle and searched for drugs and other evidence. The U.S. Supreme Court recently expanded constitutional protections by ruling that people who borrow rental cars from a friend or family member generally have the same protections as the car's authorized driver during police searches. Prior to this ruling, police could pull over rent-a-car drivers who commit a minor traffic violation, because they could then search the car if that driver was not listed on the rental application.
