Why you should exercise your right to a criminal defense attorney

Ever since the U.S. Supreme Court required that anyone being placed under arrest must be informed of his or her legal rights, most Americans – including those who have never been charged with a crime – are aware that in any criminal prosecution the defendant has the right to an attorney.

Estate planning mistakes that may affect Nevada families

Whenever it comes time to think about the fate of funds, assets and how to take care of one's family, it can be difficult to know where to begin or how to approach a unique situation. The fate of a few celebrity estate plans in recent years has shown people in Nevada what they should avoid doing as much as what they may want to do when it comes to creating their own estate plans. While estate planning is unique to each person, some mistakes can affect anyone if they do not take steps to avoid them.

Multiple appeals follow Florida kidnapping and murder conviction

A recent decision by the Florida Supreme Court to uphold the death penalty sentence of a man convicted for the kidnapping and rape of a child in Sarasota illustrates some of the considerations that can occur in the appeals process following a criminal conviction.

Estate planning mistakes can be easy to make in Nevada

Estate planning should not be a one size fits all kind of journey. Whenever a Nevada family or individual ventures into the estate planning process, there are a few areas of concern that can be costly if not handled properly.

Nevada families may need creative estate plan

Every estate plan has to be crafted with the unique family in mind. For some Nevada families, this may simply mean evenly dividing assets between adult children. For others, however, complicated family relations may make the estate a complex one to divide without creating hurt feelings or further complicating those family relations.

A look at Florida's medical marijuana proposal

Everything surrounding how medical marijuana is prescribed and used in Florida could be changing in November. While 23 states have already legalized medical marijuana in some form or fashion, Florida is possibly on the verge of becoming the 24th state. Whether these regulations will be beneficial or not is left to be seen, but it will assuredly affect marijuana drug charges if passed.
