Memorial Day Weekend in Delaware
Memorial Day weekend is a little more than a month away. The boardwalk, the beach, the smell of the ocean and Thrasher’s French fries, crowds, sunburns are what many love about Southern Delaware. However, if you love the beach but want to avoid the enormous summer crowds there are 8 Delaware beaches that tend to stay quiet, even in the middle of tourist season. Read this article from “Only In Your State” by clicking here. Unfortunately, along with all the pleasant experiences, there are also some things we hope to avoid on Memorial day weekend at the beach; traffic tickets, noise complaints, DUI, disorderly conduct and drunk in public are some of the more unpleasant that many will experience this weekend. Far too many have learned the hard way about the Delaware saying “Came down on vacation, left on probation”.
You will want to find a Criminal Lawyer
While your friendly real estate lawyer may be a great transaction lawyer, criminal and traffic charges are a different animal. You want to find a lawyer who has experience negotiating the ins and outs of the court system and who knows how to put even your simple traffic ticket in the best position to cause you the least headache. For more serious matters, you want to put yourself in the best position to defend yourself and minimize or eliminate the consequences of a criminal conviction.
Luckily, Sussex County has several excellent criminal defense and traffic law attorneys. To determine the best one for you, review their websites, asks your friends and most importantly talk to the attorney. Ask them questions about their experience, how they intend to address your case, what are your responsibilities and what are the attorney’s responsibilities? Simply talking to the attorney and asking them questions, even if you can only talk to them on the phone, will often let you know whether you feel comfortable with that lawyer and whether they will be responsive to the needs of your case.
As you would with other important decisions, when you hire an attorney, do your homework. If you have any questions contact Julianne E. Murray or Ronald D. Phillips by clicking here or calling 302-855-9300 in Sussex County or 302-697-2499 for Kent and New Castle County.
