Posted by | As many of you prepare to head out for some fun on the lake this Labor Day weekend, I'd like to take the time to stress the importance being safe and responsible while out boating or participating in other water-related activities. We all know that driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is dangerous, not to mention against the law.

Underage drinking is an ongoing problem for teens an college students. New and less stringent drug laws in certain states also have made getting caught with marijuana seem less serious. However, getting caught with such a drug in Kansas or Missouri would have much greater consequences than in Colorado, as federal law continues to prohibit the drug. Having a trusted defense attorney just a phone call away is essential in getting the best outcome in these cases.

Posted by | Summer is the time when many teens begin to learn to drive for the first time. Getting a driver's license is exciting for teens, but often terrifying for parents. Unfortunately, most teens don't understand the full responsibility that driving a vehicle involves. They simple see driving a car as a mode of freedom from their parents. Because teens don't often realize the seriousness with which they should treat driving, teens are at a higher risk for getting into an accident. In fact, teens aged 16-19 are three times more likely to be in a fatal crash than older drivers. Luckily, there are plenty of ways for teen drivers to stay safe behind the wheel.
