Criminal defense: 18-year-old charged with murder

Movies and TV shows often portray the criminal court system as a fast-paced environment where defendants are arrested, charged and then shuffled into court for judgment in only a matter of days. Things are different in real life. Even if someone is arrested, he or she might not be indicted on charges until months later, which can make crafting a criminal defense complicated. This is the situation that one young man in Lake Charles is currently facing.

High-speed chase ends with criminal charges

A recent high-speed chase ended in an accident and one man's arrest. Louisiana police booked him into an area facility on multiple criminal charges, including no safety helmet, improper lane usage and reckless operation. A judge set a bond of $102,500, which he has yet to post.

Adults of Lake Charles, you should be estate planning

Planning for the end of life or unexpected medical events might not be anyone's idea of fun, but it is still necessary. And while it might not be fun, estate planning does give Lake Charles residents control over their futures even when they cannot actively make decisions. Creating an estate plan is not just for the elderly, either. Virtually every adult at any stage of life can benefit from doing so.

Is it time to discuss appointing a power of attorney agent?

Knowing that a parent is facing health issues can be difficult for anyone. You and many other Louisiana residents may have wondered if your own parent would reach a point at which he or she could no longer make sound decisions, but a recent medical diagnosis may have made it clear that mental decline was in his or her future.
