Traffic Offenses

Traffic Offenses

Traffic violations can range from run-of-the-mill stops to subsequent arrest or hefty fines. Whether it was driving without a license, reckless driving, or handling the ramifications of a DUI, it is absolutely necessary to contact a Mississippi Traffic Offense Attorney as soon as possible after the fact. Since each state has unique traffic laws and regulations, an attorney with area-specific knowledge is required to find the best possible results.

Since many felony or misdemeanor drug violations occur due to a traffic stop, it is also helpful to employ an attorney’s expertise to determine if any factors may carry over from traffic violation to drug charge. If your rights have been violated in any way, it could play a key role in reducing a sentence or having charges dropped altogether. Contact a Mississippi Traffic Offense Attorney at McAlister Law Firm, LLC, today to discuss your unique circumstances and to begin building a hand-tailored case right away.

Simple Assault

Simple Assault

In Mississippi, simple assault has many factors that can worsen the penalties incurred. If any number of those factors are triggered, the consequences rise steeply from a possible $500 fine and up to six months in jail to up to 20 years and a much heftier fine. In these cases, contacting a Mississippi Criminal Defense Lawyer is imperative because litigation will almost certainly be necessary. By proving intent, discrimination, or extent of injury, the charges can be significantly swung either in your favor or not.

Simple assault occurs under many circumstances and does not even necessarily require physical contact or injury to be charged. However, there are common defenses for simple assault. With over 20 years of experience in the courtroom, Carolyn McAlister is ready to represent you and provide the expertise necessary to sway the situation in your favor.

Self-defense is a common defense of simple assault, and if proven, it can help your case tremendously. In order for this to be effective, though, you will need an attorney with in-depth knowledge of the state laws and all of the classifications of self-defense and simple assault. Contact McAlister Law Firm, LLC, today to set up a free consultation and discuss the details of your case.
