Are you aching for recovery following a head trauma incident?

Did another driver's distraction cause threat to your life?

You are probably like most other average California residents who have never before played a real game of Russian roulette. Most people avoid life-or-death activities like these although many have witnessed suspenseful movie scenes or heard tales of long ago real-life situations that caused their hair to stand on end. Some say driving on busy roadways throughout this state is similar to taking a high-risk chance at Russian roulette.

Has a criminal conviction affected your right to bear arms?

Facing any type of criminal charges could potentially leave your life considerably altered, especially if a conviction takes place. In some ways, a criminal conviction could even affect certain aspects of your life that had no direct connection to the crime of which you were accused. For instance, your ability to own or be around firearms could lead to negative consequences under certain circumstances.
