Happy Flag Day!

What is Flag Day? Flag Day is celebrated on June 14, marking the adoption of the American flag by the Continental Congress in the First Flag Act on June 14, 1777.

Traffic Tickets in Delaware

Each summer, Sussex County becomes a seashore destination for people from New York to Virginia. According to a recent New Journal article,  even though Delaware Department of Transportation has invested millions of dollars rebuilding highways and transit centers in the area, gridlock is expected to remain on the largely-rural highways leading to the coast during peak beach driving times. With the increased traffic comes increased chances of traffic tickets such as speeding or DUI’s.  Delaware Traffic Tickets can impact you more than you think. We recently were approached by a client who received a traffic ticket for speeding. She was […]

Happy Memorial Day!

So…Memorial Day.  I think that many people miss what it is really about.  Most people associate Memorial Day with the beginning of summer, barbecues and a cool 3 day weekend.  All of these are true but I want to make sure that people know that there is more to it.  So here is a mini-history lesson – Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day and originated after the Civil War to commemorate the fallen Union soldiers.   By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars. It is actually a […]

What is terroristic threatening?

A terroristic threat is a threat to commit a crime of violence or a threat to cause bodily injury to another person and terrorization as the result of that conduct. In Delaware, if you, or your child, threaten someone with bodily harm you can ultimately face criminal charges. This is true regardless of whether or not you meant it, or carried out any of the threats or ultimately assaulted someone. If all you did was threaten to harm, hurt, injure or kill someone you may face terroristic threatening charges. This is a very serious charge and you should not hesitate […]
