Florida firm providing competent criminal defense services

Putting forth a strong criminal defense requires dedication, legal know-how and skill. One element of this defense, as we discussed previously on the blog, is knowing the rules of evidence, which includes hearsay. Without raising proper objections to hearsay and responding appropriately to such objections, as well as failing to find exceptions to hearsay, one's criminal defense can be significantly diminished. This means that lacking the knowledge and skill to address this one seemingly minor issue can leave one susceptible to conviction and the penalties that accompany it.

Divorce might be the best option for you and your kids

Some might have an impression that, for the sake of the kids, it is better to remain in a loveless marriage than to divorce. However, in some cases, such an approach might actually run against the very goal a parent is trying to further: protecting their kids' well-being.

Child custody and the child's best interests

There are many important areas of family law. Depending on one's specific set of circumstances, certain family law issues may prove to be more pertinent. Those who are concerned about their post-divorce financial health, for example, may find that property division is of the utmost importance to them. On the other hand, in many cases where children are involved, child custody and visitation is usually thrust to the forefront. Those who want to protect the time and relationship they have with their child need to ensure that they know the law and how to use it to their advantage.

What is hearsay and why is it important?

If you've been charged with a criminal offense, then you are probably considering your criminal defense options. Researching these options and making important decisions can be challenging, though, especially if you have very little or no legal experience of your own. If that is the case, then you may not know what to look for when choosing an attorney to represent you, which can place you at a significant disadvantage. This week we want to discuss one important legal concept that is crucial for your defense attorney to know and understand: hearsay.

How to determine if a plea bargain is right for you

Those who are accused of committing a crime can find themselves facing aggressive prosecutors who diligently work to build strong cases. This means that the evidence mounted against a criminal defendant can be quite extensive. Yet, it is important to know that even in cases where the evidence makes it look like an individual is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, there may be criminal defense options available to him or her.

Where To Look For Hidden Assets

If you and your spouse had significant assets during your marriage, one spouse may be tempted to try to that people hide some of those assets, thus making them unavailable to be split up in a divorce. While there are several ways a person can try to hide assets, including the straightforward method of moving joint funds into an individual account, there are some methods for hiding assets that may only be available to people with considerable resources.

Florida family law firm fighting for post-divorce finances

The process of getting divorced can take a toll on you in many ways. Of course, bringing about the end of a relationship, sometimes one that has been decades in the making, can be emotionally damaging. To make matters worse, divorce often brings up difficult financial problems, the outcomes of which can set the stage for your post-divorce life. When it comes to property division, alimony and child support, Floridians need to ensure that they are doing everything they can to protect their financial interests from the get-go. Although spousal support and child support may be modified post-divorce, it can be challenging, and property division is permanent.
