Cautions of Driving with Prescriptions

As societal norms have changed in recent years, the use of controlled substances, legal and illegal, has increased exponentially. While there are divergent views on whether we benefit from a more medicated populace, one thing is certain. We all agree that the roadways should be safe from impaired drivers.

If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence or misconduct of another, you and your family members may be entitled to file a wrongful death claim against the other party. Those who can recover damages in New Jersey and Pennsylvania include a surviving spouse, children and anyone who can prove dependence on the deceased.

Ending a marriage is often times a difficult process, and you may have heard that it might be less stressful with a more collaborative approach. A collaborative divorce is an approach to ending your relationship that eliminates the need for going to court, and having a judge decide your family's issues.

Many divorces require litigation to divide up property, award child custody, and resolve financial support issues. When one spouse is not fully cooperative in reaching an outcome, the divorce procedure might become drawn out.
