Regain driving rights with a hardship license in Indiana

You made a mistake. You drank and drove, and a court charged you with operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OWI). The state of Indiana suspended your license for at 180 days after your conviction.

Not having a valid driver’s license proves detrimental to your ability to commute to work, travel to and from family events or even run basic errands. Should you hold no prior conviction for an OWI, you may have the ability to petition for a specialized driver’s license.

How can you make a good impression in court?

When you go to trial for a crime, there are some things you can do to make your life easier. From presenting yourself appropriately to offering respect to the judge, much of what you do will have an effect on your case.

Your defense attorney will talk to you about a defense for your case and what to say to the court, but your defense itself is not always enough. You also need to show that you take this charge seriously and that you intend to make changes or to show your innocence.

Car crashes: What to expect with whiplash

Whiplash is a type of injury that occurs when the head whips forward or side to side quickly. It's common during rear-end collisions, but it can also occur during other types of crashes.

As far as a personal injury goes, whiplash can range from mild to severe. Severe cases are debilitating and cause chronic pain, but mild cases are easier to handle.

Fatal Fourth of July injuries

The Fourth of July is a national celebration. While every family has different traditions that range from backyard cookouts to out-of-town travel, nearly everyone celebrated the holiday with some kind of fireworks show.

Key arguments to win the house in a divorce

When you and your spouse are dividing your property in a divorce, one of the harder assets to divide is the family house. The house is often the largest and most expensive of your shared property. It drastically affects how the rest of the estate is sorted as Indiana law requires the court to presume equitable division of marital property.

If you and your ex take the case to court, having the right arguments is crucial towards obtaining your home and getting the best deal possible. Here are some potential arguments you can use.

A better divorce process

If you are contemplating a divorce, you have probably heard the horror stories from family and friends. Most divorces come through a bitter, wrenching process that will leave you feeling emotionally and financially drained. But it simply does not have to be that way.

If you and your spouse are committed to the process, mediation provides an way to work through the details of divorce without the pain and cost of a long fought court battle. It doesn’t matter if there are children involved, either, and many of the most successful examples come from families who put the focus on co-parenting and doing what is best for their children.
