Texas DUI: Things you should know about field sobriety tests

If a Texas police officer has ever pulled you over in a traffic stop, you know how stressful such situations can be. In fact, your heart might start racing as soon as you see flashing red and blue lights in your rearview mirror. It's understandable, as there's no way to predict how such situations will play out. The officer who approaches your driver's side window might merely ask to see your license and vehicle registration information, then issue you a warning and send you along.

Using a prenup to protect a business in a divorce

A prenuptial agreement, or postnuptial for couples who are already married, can be a way for business owners in Texas to protect their enterprises if they get divorced. Some people may worry that these documents are ways to cheat a spouse out of a rightful share of marital property, but this is not necessarily the case. Instead, this agreement allows a couple to make decisions about how to divide property in an atmosphere that is less contentious than a divorce would be. A pre- or postnup can make the divorce process less difficult.

Tips for reducing conflict during a divorce

When slang and linguistics get in the way of criminal justice

In Texas and across the United States, ensuring that defendants are fully understood when they tell their side of the story is a tenet of criminal defense law. Unfortunately, this does not always happen in cases when individuals facing criminal charges communicate in slang or a difficult to understand vernacular. It has become especially problematic for many black defendants.
