What Is Jury Selection?

When you have a trial by jury, you face a jury of your peers. This selected group of individuals will sit, listen to the story, the facts, and the evidence presented, and will finally render their decision. And the decision they make as a group will dictate the future course of your life. This means that your life, in no uncertain terms, depends on the decision that jury makes.

Not a day goes by that a client doesn’t ask me what is going to happen in a deposition. I give my clients the simple truth about the nature of a deposition: it is a glorified question and answer session. Unlike the violent, outburst-filled depositions you may have seen on TV, most real-life depositions are pleasant, non-combative exchanges of information between opposing parties in a legal case. But whether your case is one of personal injury or criminal defense, you need to have the right lawyer to defend you. There are things that can happen in a deposition which could create serious problems for your case in the long run.

What Happens at an Arraignment?

Published on Sep 16, 2021 at 10:59 am in Legal Information.

The first step in criminal proceedings is called the arraignment. This is when you are brought in front of the court to hear the charges against you and enter a plea. As a defendant who has been falsely charged with a crime, this is your first chance to state your innocence in front of a judge. There are different procedures that happen depending on whether you are in state court or federal court, but once you have completed this first step, the real work of defending your case begins.

Should I Tell the Police My Side of the Story if I’m Arrested?

Published on Sep 2, 2021 at 8:31 am in Legal Information.

There is one big question criminal lawyers hear again and again from clients who have been arrested: Should I talk to the police? If you interviewed every respectable criminal defense attorney in the United States, you would likely hear the same answer from all of them: No, and absolutely not alone. No matter what you may believe or have heard to the contrary, it is never wise to talk to the police before speaking with your attorney.

2018 Mississippi Law Changes

Though we’re only a portion of the way through 2018, there have been a small handful of fairly major bills and acts that have passed in Mississippi during the year. Mississippi’s three-month legislative season, which just came to a close in March, was unfortunately rather lackluster in regard to the passing of new bills and laws, however.

Below you’ll find a brief summary of just a few of the major bills and acts that have passed in the first quarter of 2018:

15-Week Abortion Ban: As of March 2018, Mississippi almost became the state with the earliest abortion ban in the nation. Gov. Phil Bryant signed House Bill 1510 which prevents women from getting an abortion after the 15th week of their pregnancy. Almost immediately following this, a judge signed a temporary restraining order on the ban, however. The case and ban are awaiting litigation.
