Louisiana card game leaves 2 preparing criminal defense

Many people in Louisiana enjoy spending time in card rooms. In a casino near New Orleans, a round of cards ended with casino and state police investigators reviewing video surveillance of the game. Following their review, they accused the dealer and a player of cheating. This is now an active case in the criminal justice system where both men are likely focused on preparing a criminal defense.

Elder law incident leads to arrest of two nursing home workers

When elderly parents of adult children in Louisiana live in nursing homes, it's not uncommon for those children to worry whether their loved ones are receiving proper care from staff members. It's not possible for an adult child to be with his or her parent 24/7, which is often a key factor that necessitates assisted living arrangements to begin with. When elder law problems arise involving substandard care or abuse in nursing homes, it can be very emotionally upsetting for all involved.

Elements that lead to DUI arrest may play into your defense

Though you may do your best to remain safe on the road, anyone can make a mistake. If you have one too many drinks and get behind the wheel -- or if an officer just thinks you had too many drinks -- you could end up in a serious legal predicament. Even if you do not feel intoxicated or believe that your abilities were impaired, you could still face a DUI charge if an officer feels it applicable to the situation.

When estate planning includes assets that are later stolen

Not every Louisiana estate owner dies with all financial and other personal affairs neatly organized and set for the estate administration process. Then again, some who do execute thorough estate planning actions still wind up leaving family members with complicated problems to resolve. An estate executor for former First Lady Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis's first cousin is currently entangled in such circumstances, claiming that the owner of a particular art gallery is in possession of a portrait that is rightfully owned by his aunt's estate.

Don't get stuck in a drunk driving predicament

It is every driver's responsibility to know the laws in the state where he or she is driving. It's also a good idea to become familiar with information regarding alcohol consumption and how it can affect different people in different ways. Arming oneself with appropriate information before getting behind the wheel of a motor vehicle in Louisiana may be the best means for avoiding a drunk driving conviction.

An estate planning tool that provides a grantor with a way out

Overall, more people will likely die in Louisiana without ever signing final estate documents than those who execute solid plans ahead of time. Why this is remains a mystery, although some people simply do not like to discuss matters associated with their own mortality. Others understand the importance of estate planning but procrastinate or hesitate because they aren't sure where to turn for help in navigating the process.
