Virginia legislature considers increasing some DUI penalties

Readers of this Fairfax-based legal blog may know that the penalties residents can face for alleged drunk driving charges and accidents are heavy. The loss of one's driving privileges, jail time and fines can all befall a person who is convicted of a DUI charge. Now, though, there is a movement in the Commonwealth to increase the penalties for individuals who are convicted of drunk driving charges that involve accidents and injuries.

Why do negligence claims focus on "the reasonable person?"

Each day Virginia residents are expected to do their best as they work in their jobs, take care of their families and interact with their communities. They strive to provide themselves and their loved ones with the care and consideration that they require to be successful. However, as humans, many people will make mistakes and cause accidents from time to time that fall outside of their efforts to always be at their best.

When should you protect your parenting time?

In the months and years following a divorce, many parents find it difficult to know when to protect their parenting time and when to practice flexibility. Some parents allow too much flexibility in their shared parenting time and miss valuable experiences with their children, while others may not allow for events beyond the other parent's control.
