Perhaps the most harrowing effect of a TRO on a person accused of domestic violence is being evicted from his own home in case he shares it with the plaintiff. Although this may be temporary, it could mean that the accused may not be able to get his personal belongings until the order is lifted. Sometimes, he would have to wait for months to get a full court hearing where the order can be reversed. Fortunately, hiring a seasoned Fort Lauderdale criminal attorney gives the accused a chance at a fair outcome in the event of a TRO. Those implicated in domestic violence cases certainly need legal advice on the dos and don’ts right after the issuance of a TRO, which a qualified lawyer would be in the best position to dispense.

Simple details like these make insurance claims in the Sunshine State, and everywhere else for that matter, a bit complicated, if not interesting to watch. At any rate, insurers and their insured who find themselves at the receiving end of a lawsuit would do dwell to work with a respected Fort Lauderdale criminal lawyer—such as Richard F. Della Fera, for instance—who is highly experienced in civil and insurance defense. The latter field is quite broad, seeing that it covers homeowners insurance, workers’ compensation, medical malpractice, and auto accidents just to name a few. Insurance defense essentially aims to protect insurers from false insurance claims by transferring the liability to another party (a.k.a. indemnification). Proper legal representation is important, considering that the state’s insurance laws can change in favor of the policyholder, thereby making insurance companies more vulnerable to unfair insurance claims.

Picture this situation: say you’re the owner of a company that was accused of selling a defective product. Rather than settle matters in court, the complainant demands that you pay him a huge sum of money for damages instead—something that you feel is a bit too much. You then explore your options and find other ways to reach a settlement, like providing a replacement product free of charge.
This is where’ll you need the expertise of a civil litigation attorney. ‘Civil litigation’ is a catch-all term for any legal dispute between two or more parties that result in settlements, rather than criminal sanctions. A civil litigation attorney is there to guide you through the process, from the submission of paperwork to the settlement process itself.

Drinking alcohol before or while driving is illegal not just in the United States but in almost all countries. If you get pulled over by an officer and are discovered to have been driving under the influence, you can be arrested and charged with DUI. As simple as it may sound, a DUI charge can spell disaster in your relationships and career.
