Getting a good job after a conviction

Criminal convictions can follow people for years, if not the rest of their lives. Parties who do not have a proper criminal defense in place may face harsh penalties and even more hardship after they have paid the price for their infractions.

Think twice to avoid a DUI charge

For many individuals in Shalimar, the end of the year means holiday season and spending time with loved ones. Some of these individuals may drink more than they usually do as they hang out with their friends and go to family gatherings. This is a primary reason why the number DUI arrests tend to spike at the end of the year. 

Boating under the influence has serious consequences

Summer is a great time for water festivals and parties. Many boat operators will drive a boat while they're drinking or after having a few. Although licenses are not required for boat operators, it is possible to be charged with boating under the influence, or BUI. According to the Florida statutes, the penalties for a BUI are just as serious as for a DUI, although there are a few differences you should know about.
