Know Your Options When Facing Drunk Driving Charges
Individuals can be charged with a DUI if they are found to have a blood alcohol or breath alcohol level at or above 0.08 percent. If police suspect that you may be under the influence of other drugs and unable to drive, you could also be charged with a DUI. Police have immense powers when it comes to gathering evidence if a DUI is suspected. However, police are still required to obey the law regarding gathering evidence and taking breath or blood samples. Our attorneys understand that mistakes happen, and we can work with you to help you get your charges dropped or reduced, or help you seek assistance if you have a substance abuse or drinking issue that led to your DUI.
Seek Legal Help Right Away When Accused Of Drug Crimes
If you have been charged with drug possession, you could be facing fines, jail time, and other consequences. Our firm works with individuals facing drug crimes and possession charges. If police find an illegal substance when searching your person, your home, or your car, you could be found in possession. However, in order to be able to convict a person for possession, the police must have used legal means to search the person or their property. This is where having a criminal defense lawyer can be helpful. The severity of the consequences will depend on how much of a controlled substance was found in your possession, the type of controlled substance in your possession, and other factors (like if police think you had the intent to sell). If you are facing drug possession charges, assert your right to remain silent, and ask to speak to our criminal defense lawyers Foley & Wilson Law Firm. We are here to help.
You Must Take Theft Charges Seriously
Theft is defined as the act of depriving another person of their property through dishonest means, with the intention to keep the property or sell the property. This can involve taking the property from another person’s home or shoplifting. However, you are innocent until proven guilty. The consequences of a theft charge will depend on the value of the items stolen and the circumstances of the theft (being accused of using a deadly weapon, for example). Our experienced attorneys work with individuals who are facing theft charges. Reach out today to learn more and to let us help you with your case.
