Erase Your DWI Record!
Making your legal mistakes magically go away is a process called expungement. Expungement is a legal proceeding that allows someone to scrub their criminal record clean if you have ever experienced one of those dreaded "hold my beer" moments. Did you know that records from a D.W.I. arrest, plea or conviction can also be expunged? How is it done? First, you have to wait 10 years from the date of the guilty plea or conviction. Second, you can't have any other additional alcohol-related traffic o... Read More

You have been out with some friends for a few drinks.  On your way home you get pulled over.  The police officer says you crossed the centerline.  The officer then asks for your drivers license and proof of insurance.  He smells the booze and asks if you have been drinking. You respond "just a few". Everyone always answers "a few". After a series of fields sobriety tests (you are not legally required to do them), you are placed under arrest for DWI.  You are now head...

Anything you post on social media can and will be used against you in a court of law. Information shared on social media can cause complications if you find yourself involved in a legal dispute.  Insurance adjusters, lawyers, police, prosecutors and others often investigate social media profiles looking for evidence.  I know this because I have used evidence obtained from social media to help my clients win their cases.  I have witnessed social media data used to prosecute in...

First bit of advice:  Don’t drink and drive.  If you have had anything to drink, get a ride. Call a cab. Check out Uber or CarGO.  Take the shoe leather express if you have to. That being said, people make mistakes. No one plans on getting arrested for Driving While Intoxicated. Most of the time, many of our clients who get charged with DWI have never before run afoul of the law. In fact, approximately 80% of those who do get a DWI, never get charged with a second of...

Expungement.  It's a legal term.  It's a way to scrub a criminal record clean if you have ever run afoul of the law.  Expungement is a process that allows someone to petition a court to have an arrest, guilty plea, or conviction removed from certain public records. Up until the recent passage of Senate Bill 588, now Section 610.140, Missouri wasn't a very forgiving state when it came to giving its citizens a chance to clean up their criminal records.  Missouri's expungement ...

 A few weeks ago the Southeast Missourian newspaper ran an article discussing the use of video cameras at various intersections within the city limits of Cape Girardeau, Missouri.  Some of the information about the use of video recording devices at various intersections in the city was news to me.   So, in order to learn more about where these video cameras are located, where the data are stored, and who has access to the recorded data, our law firm filed a Sunshine Law reco...

There was a lot of buzz recently about the possibility of the legal blood alcohol limit for drivers being lowered to .05%.  The recommendation for lowering the BAC limit to .05% came from a new study published by National Transportation Safety Board.   The study and its recommendations do no carry the force of law but can carry a lot of weight with state legislatures and law enforcement.  I reviewed the study and compiled some of the more interesting information below: L...
