Driving under the influence of alcohol or other impairing drugs is a crime in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Whether your state calls it "driving under the influence (DUI)," "driving while intoxicated (DWI)," or some other name, it is a charge that is taken very seriously and punished accordingly. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that roughly 40 percent of all U.S. traffic deaths are alcohol-related to some degree. Read more »
Just about anyone can start a family on their own, but certain procedures affecting the responsibilities of family life must be pursued in court. While matters of the heart are very personal, the rights of same-sex couples to get married, laws regarding divorce, and the process of adopting a child are governed by state and federal laws. "Family law," therefore, refers to rules, regulations, and court procedures involving the family unit. While some family law matters may be handled without counsel, processes such as divorce and child custody often require the skill and expertise of a skilled attorney.

Bankruptcy is a generalized term for a federal court procedure that helps consumers and
businesses get rid of their debts and repay their creditors. If you can prove that you
are entitled to it, the bankruptcy court will protect you during your bankruptcy proceeding.
In general, bankruptcies can be categorized into two types -- "liquidations" and "reorganizations."
Among the different types of bankruptcies, Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 proceedings are the most common for individuals and businesses. Chapter 7 bankruptcies normally fall in the liquidation category. This means that if you own property, it could be taken and sold in the process of liquidation in order to pay back your debts. Conversely, Chapter 13 bankruptcies generally fall under the reorganization category, meaning that you will probably be able to keep your property, but you must submit and stick to a plan that will allow you to repay some or all of your debts within three to five years.

Mediation differs from arbitration, but they are both alternatives to litigation through the courts. This section includes articles covering the basics of mediation, the types of cases that may be mediated, how it works with small claims, and some of its key advantages. In addition, you will find answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about mediation. Read more »
