When a personal injury case and immigration law intersect

Many New Jersey immigrants live in fear that some type of issue will arise that will spark legal status problems for them or a family member. In fact, some people may hesitate to seek legal support for a personal injury matter because they are worried about underlying immigration issues that might surface in the process. As a result, they may suffer adverse consequences that affect them and their loved ones for the rest of their lives.

Theft plus violence equals robbery

While most states refer to their criminal offenses as misdemeanors or felonies, New Jersey is different. If authorities charge you with a "crime" in this state, you are likely facing very serious charges, which may be felonies in other states.

Civil litigation often stems from cases like this

At 3:30 a.m., there is not typically a lot of traffic on an average New Jersey roadway. Then again, just because it is the wee hours of a morning does not necessarily mean the roads would be empty either. A recent motor vehicle collision happened at such an hour. It is the type of case that often leads to civil litigation because there were multiple fatalities and injuries.

ICE used immigration marriage interviews for deportation arrests

Immigrants in New Jersey and elsewhere often encounter challenges regarding their legal statuses. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers make lots of arrests when they believe people are eligible for deportation. Such arrests cause stress and fear in many families, but a U.S. District Court judge sitting in another state recently handed down a ruling that immigrant families in his particular state are happy about.

Maintenance scandal brings BAC test results under question

Because of per se laws in most states, prosecutors often need very little evidence to obtain a conviction for drunk driving. In New Jersey, like most states, a blood alcohol concentration of .08 is the per se limit for legal impairment. In other words, if you register .08 on a breath test, authorities need no other evidence to conclude you are impaired behind the wheel.

Charges plus criminal defense affects outcome

Facing drug charges in New Jersey does not necessarily mean the defendant involved will be convicted in court. Depending on the type of criminal defense he or she presents, any number of things can occur that turns the situation in his or her favor. For instance, if the court is convinced that there is a lack of evidence, the judge overseeing a particular case might rule a dismissal. Just as the two people who were recently arrested and charged with drug crimes are guaranteed an opportunity to refute the charges against them, any person in this state or beyond facing similar charges is guaranteed the same opportunity.
