Leave Your Legal Concerns To Me


You may consider yourself someone who can drink alcohol responsibly and not let the consumption have any negative impact on your life. However, does that description truly fit your situation? Many people with alcohol abuse issues do not realize they have abuse problems or deny that a problem exists.

While you may think that you can ignore such an issue, it can significantly affect your life if police stop your vehicle after suspecting you of driving while intoxicated. Certainly, this type of scenario could happen to even just a casual consumer of alcohol. However, what happens if this stop is not your first or even your second?


Research may shed a troubling light on how couples in Louisiana interact, especially when it comes to caregiving and illness. When one partner becomes seriously ill, a couple may be more likely to divorce. However, studies indicate that the likelihood of a split only rises when the wife is the one to fall ill. While there are a number of factors that can contribute to the divorce risk, including the existing strength of the relationship and other underlying issues, marital problems are more likely to arise when women are sick.

Multiple studies show that women with cancer are more likely to divorce. Other research indicates that women who had heart disease or stroke were even more likely to separate than those with cancer or lung diseases. On the other hand, studies show that husbands’ serious illnesses do not carry an increased likelihood of divorce.


When facing criminal charges, you understand that a conviction can change the trajectory of your life. A mark on your criminal record can affect everything from your ability to get a job to a child custody proceeding, and it is worthwhile to confront any type of charge with a strong defense. This is the case with drug charges, specifically prescription drug charges.

When a person misuses prescription drugs by selling them, trafficking them or using them to make other types of street drugs, the penalties can be steep. The abuse of prescription drugs is a widespread problem, and a conviction of this type of crime can result in extensive time behind bars. If you are facing these charges, you do not have to face them alone.


In a perfect world, couples in Louisiana would be able to end a marriage while still effectively co-parenting for the sake of their children. In the real world, however, this isn’t always the case. While there has been more of an effort in recent years to keep things balanced financially and with visitation rights for fathers, an argument can be made that there’s still room for improvement. This is, in part, due to a lingering tendency of courts to grant custody to mothers when there’s a dispute.

Fathers may be able to ensure that their rights are upheld during a divorce regardless of a child’s living arrangements by being reasonable about custody and visitation. For instance, a dad might determine whether he has time to fully commit to providing proper care for his child. Fathers looking to make the most of their parental rights are also advised to keep the best interests in the child in mind while also dealing with their own personal feelings about the end of their relationship.
