A need for criminal defense may not pair so well with immigration

Emigrating from another country of origin to live and work in New Jersey is not without its challenges for most immigrants. The first weeks or months in the United States may be spent overcoming a language barrier and dealing with a certain amount of culture shock. In time, new surroundings may start to feel like home, unless a serious problem arises that causes things to get a lot worse before they get better, such as winding up with a serious need for criminal defense.

Homicide does not always refer to murder

Do you think there's ever a time when a person might take the life of another human being, yet not be guilty of a crime? If you answered, "Yes," then you were correct. The word homicide simply means the taking of human life; however, many people in New Jersey and other states mistakenly believe that homicide equals murder. If prosecutors charge you with homicide, it doesn't necessarily mean they are charging you with murder.
