Cheap Criminal Defense Attorney

My office receives a lot of phone calls asking what I charge for a criminal defense or DUI defense.  Some of these prospective clients are looking for a cheap criminal defense attorney or a cheap DUI attorney.  Some are just trying to get an idea of the range of criminal attorney fees.  We happily give them our fee and tell them what we do for that fee.  However, it is really difficult to really show them all that we do for that fee.  While we have a competitive fee, we are not the lowest fee.  We do not want to be the lowest fee because of the loss of professionalism and service that would likely occur if we were to charge such a low fee.

Notice of Intent to Relocate

What is a notice of intent to relocate?  It is a provision that is most likely tucked away within an order allocating parental rights and responsibilities, including divorce decrees, dissolution decrees, and legal custody orders.  It is a provision that is often overlooked.  If a residential parent moves, that parent must notify the court when he or she moves.  If one parent does not know where the other parent lives, they may become anxious about where their children are during that other parent’s parenting time.  This could lead to one parent employing various methods to respond.  Such methods may include methods that may not be permissible, such as withholding visitation.  That parent may also decide to call the police or file a motion in court to have custody changed, all because that parent simply did not know where their children were at during the other parent’s parenting time.

Traffic Stops Cannot Be Extended For A Drug Dog Sniff

Traffic stops cannot be extended for a drug dog sniff.  On April 21, 2015, the United States Supreme Court, in Dennys Rodriguez v. United States, held that police may not keep the motorist waiting after the ticket is written they have no reasonable suspicion justifying the extra time.  Essentially, police may not turn routine traffic stops into drug searches using trained dogs.  Police officers who stop a car for a traffic violation are justified in “checking the driver’s license, determining whether there are outstanding warrants against the driver, and inspecting the automobile’s registration and proof of insurance.”  “These checks serve the same objective as enforcement of the traffic code: ensuring that vehicles on the road are operated safely and responsibly.”  A dog sniff is “not an ordinary incident of a traffic stop,” but is instead, “a measure aimed at detecting evidence of ordinary criminal wrongdoing.” (more…)
