Confessions and The Right to Remain Silent

Written by: mycasewebsites2
Category:

I recently enjoyed the First Season of “True Detective” on HBO.  Matthew McConaughey’s character, a particularly brooding Louisiana detective, among other things, has a reputation for gaining confessions.  “Rust” Cohle’s” theory is that you, “Just gotta look a man in his eyes.

Hiring the Right Attorney is not Accidental

Written by: mycasewebsites2

I handled my own divorce. I could do that. Would I do it again? Probably not. The truth is that I overlooked some key issues because I was too close to the action. As a result, when my ex-wife moved my children to another jurisdiction, I had no recourse. In order to regain the protection […]
