Life after wrongful incarceration: what are your rights?

Imagine you’ve been convicted of a crime you didn’t commit. Maybe you were framed, or perhaps you were the victim of inaccurate eyewitness identification. It may sound implausible, but unfortunately, the criminal justice system is not perfect—and mistakes happen.

A prescription or medical paperwork won't prevent a drug DUI

Far too many people mistakenly believe that driving under the influence (DUI) charges in Florida only result from alcohol consumption or the use of illegal street drugs. A frightening number of drivers assume that prescribed or recommended medications will not result in a DUI or drugged driving charge.

Teenagers taking a joyride could inadvertently ruin their future

Teenagers are notorious for having poor decision-making skills. After all, their brains are still growing, and the part responsible for understanding consequences will not fully mature until later in life. Teenagers often act impulsively, and while they know right from wrong, they may not fully consider the impact of their actions.

Florida remains at the center of the stand your ground debate

The stand your ground law in Florida has kept the state at the center of the heated debates surrounding this issue. The law was passed in 2005 and allows a person to use deadly force if they think they are in imminent danger of being killed or injured. The current law doesn't require a person to try to flee the dangerous situation before using that force.
