+Tina Willis Law - Orlando You are very welcome. The pleasure was mine. You added a great deal of value to the article, and I think it will be a great benefit to readers.  

These types of claims can be very complex.  It often takes a team of attorneys to handle them due to the overlapping areas of law that can apply.  So it was very advantageous for a team of attorneys to explain the numerous concepts which can apply to these cases.

Thanks again +Tina Willis Law - Orlando

Violent Crime Laws in Los Angeles CA 

+Cron, Israels & Stark shares a comprehensive outline which covers violent crime charges and laws in Los Angeles CA.

#ViolentCrimeAttorneyLosAngeles   
 
Cron, Israels & Stark - Violent Crime Charges in Los Angeles

Criminal acts that involve the use of violence or threat of violence in the commission of the unlawful act are labeled as Violent Crimes. The violence or threat of violence may or may not include the use of a weapon.

However, if a firearm or other deadly weapon is used, the offense will most often be classified as a felony. Most of the time violence is used primarily as a means to an end particularly in the commission of crimes such as rape or robbery. Some of the most frequently committed violent crimes include: Robbery, Assault and Battery, Child Abuse, Elder Abuse, Extortion, Murder, Attempted Murder, Gang Crimes, Kidnapping, Arson, Domestic Violence, Stalking, Carjacking, Sexual Assault, and Criminal Threats.

The consequences of a violent crime conviction can be life-changing. Thus, it is important that if you are accused of a violent crime that you retain the legal services of an experienced Los Angeles criminal defense attorney who knows how to successfully fight violent crime charges.

The charges and sentencing may be enhanced if the defendant used a weapon in the commission of the crime or has a prior conviction on his or her record. Even more importantly, if you or your loved one is facing such charges on a strike offense, or has a prior criminal record, it is crucial that you obtain legal counsel. We can help you to aggressively fight your case and avoid the consequences of a strike offense on your record!

Let us negotiate with the police and prosecutors on your behalf before charges are even brought to court. We promise an aggressive courtroom defense whether the case is pending a preliminary hearing or a jury trial.

How Client Actions Affect Personal Injury Case Value

From My Blog

This is a timely subject for me this week.  But I was doing some jury verdict research and stumbled upon a case that I couldn't believe any personal injury attorney ever accepted, much less took to trial.  So a blog post was born.

Thanks very much for any shares!

Drug DUI Incidents Increasing

+Tina Willis Law - Orlando Shared this post by
+William Bill Hurst Indianapolis IN Personal Injury Attorney.

+William Bill Hurst Discusses recent trends in drunk driving v. drug DUI driving. Recent statistics show that drunk driving incidents are decreasing while drug impaired driving incidents are increasing. 

  #PersonalInsuryAttorneyIndianapolisIN  
 
 The NHTSA has said more studies will follow due to marijuana being legalized in several states, but at this time we aren’t sure. So what do the reports say exactly? #indianalawyer  http://billhurst.com 
Drunk driving has significantly declined, but high driving has increased. Your Indianapolis car accident lawyer explains why this matters.

It is a true honor to write a review of the services offered at The Law Office of James E. Novak. If you're seeking a criminal defense or DUI attorney in Maricopa County, AZ, your search should be over as you've found the right attorney for the job. Mr. Novak is a former prosecutor and therefore has the benefit of knowing his adversary's argument before it is even made. Therefore, he is imminently prepared to counter that argument with zealous representation and advocacy to protect his client's constitutional rights. If a family member or loved one found themselves in legal trouble in AZ, Mr. Novak would be the first person I would call. I can think of no higher praise to bestow upon a fellow attorney.

James Novak is an outstanding attorney. I cannot believe you would find someone better for criminal defense or DUI defense. He is a tough litigator with hundreds of jury trials under his belt. As a former prosecutor, he also knows how the other side thinks and works. If you want your best chance at a dismissal, I highly recommend hiring Mr. Novak.
