Criminal Law

A common misconception is that when an individual is given a traffic citation, be it criminal (such as one of these, a DUI or DWLSR) or civil (such as speeding, careless driving, or failure to wear a seatbelt), that signing the ticket is a confession of guilt. It is not. You are required by law to sign the ticket as proof of receipt of that ticket. Willful failure to do so may result in being charged with another criminal traffic offense.


Linda was an exceptional lawyer. This was a divorce from (Hell) and was drug out over more than a year. My Ex's lawyer actually quit. Linda was very professional yet had a really personal touch. She actually felt like a friend through this. I really am glad I chose your law firm and would recommend you to others, especially Linda.
