You have the right to defend yourself against a Protective Order

Maryland understands that domestic violence can imperil people across the state. Those afraid for their safety have the right to seek a Protective Order against someone in their family who is abusing or threatening them. Peace Orders apply to people with a different relationship, such as co-workers or dating partners.

Bill to legalize marijuana advancing through federal system

Many states are decriminalizing marijuana, but this doesn't mean that it is fully legal. The federal government still has it listed as a Schedule I drug, which means that you can face criminal charges for having it even if it is decriminalized on a state level.

Drunk driving is common during the winter holiday season

Now that the holiday season is here, people are going to start attending parties to celebrate. If you are planning on doing this, make sure that you don't have to drive home after having a few adult beverages. This could save you time and money because you won't have to worry about facing drunk driving charges.

Domestic violence defense options vary greatly

Domestic violence charges can come from a variety of situations in a relationship, but the long-term impacts of them are fairly universal. A person who faces these charges often has some very serious life consequences to deal with, many of which manifest before the person is convicted. Unfortunately, this is just because of society's perceptions of this type of situation.

Drug use may lead to other criminal activities

Drug charges are serious matters that are often the result of an addiction. What many people don't realize is that these charges can also lead to other legal issues. There is a relationship between drugs and criminal acts of all sorts. This makes it difficult to curb the issue because there are deeper things going on than what the criminal court system can address in many cases.
