Legal malpractice can cost you more than a case

There's nothing quite like finding out you can't take a case to trial because your attorney messed up. Unfortunately, that happens more than you may think. New, inexperienced attorneys may make errors that impact your case, or you may find an older attorney doesn't take your case as seriously as he or she should. Any attorney could make serious errors that result in your being unable to obtain the compensation you were expecting from your case.

Attorney-client privilege applies to email services

As you may know from watching movies or television, attorney-client privilege gives attorneys a chance to know everything about a case from a client's perspective without the client risking the attorney turning them in. The attorney can't be asked to release anything said in confidence.

Under what circumstances is attorney-client privilege destroyed?

Attorney-client privilege refers to the confidential communication between a lawyer and his or her client. When attorney-client privilege exists, the information related to such communications may not be used against the client in court. Information and communications deemed to be "privileged" in this fashion include discussions pertaining to the law and legal advice that is either oral or written.

Colorado's DUI laws are strict and straightforward. As a state that allows both drinking and the use of marijuana, the authorities have to be cautious about DUIs and what they mean for the safety of those on the roads. Colorado's DUI fees are so high that it's very unlikely for people to get them more than once; those who do face significant penalties.

What should you do if you're a victim of a hit-and-run crash?

A hit-and-run accident is one in which a driver hits another person and then flees without pulling over to make sure the other driver is okay, to report the accident or to await police. Hit-and-run crashes put lives at risk, since there's a potential that those hurt could end up going without the medical care they need.
