Bankruptcy 4/15/21

Debtors in Bankruptcy
Are you facing serious financial problems in your personal life or business? Filing bankruptcy can stop harassing phone calls and letters, and threats of legal action. It can help you get a fresh start.

Filing bankruptcy is not shameful. The vast majority of consumer bankruptcy cases are caused by divorce, unemployment, or a serious illness or disability. Bankruptcy is an opportunity to get your finances in order and get on with your life.

At the Law Offices of Philip M. Stone, we provide counsel in a broad range of bankruptcy matters:

Chapter 7 is the simplest, quickest, and least expensive way for people who are behind on credit cards, medical, and utility bills. Read more.
Chapter 11 is for LLCs and incorporated businesses, and for individuals whose debts exceed the limits for a Chapter 13 filing. Read more.
Chapter 12 is for “farmers and fishermen”—people with seasonal income. Read more.
Chapter 13 is for homeowners and landlords who are behind on their mortgage payments and need time to catch up. It’s also for small-business owners who owe sales or payroll withholding taxes and individuals who owe state or federal income taxes. Read more.
The bankruptcy laws were extensively revised in 2005, so you want an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer to help you understand your options. And that’s where we’ll start, with a discussion of whether bankruptcy is the answer for you and what your options are. Contact us.

Commercial Law and Contracts
Starting a business? Customers not paying? Vendors late with deliveries? Need a contract drawn up?

You want an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to protect your interests, one who will help you identify all your options and the consequences of your choices.

A Lawyer Working for Your Best Interest
From speeding tickets to DWI to drug charges, the Law Office of Charles M. Oldham, PLLC, has the experience to effectively represent our clients in the courts in Mecklenburg County and other North Carolina state and federal courts. In addition to experience, we offer every client personal service as we work for the best resolution in your case.

Charlotte Criminal Defense Attorney · 704-323-8520 · Contact Us
The best way to learn the ropes in criminal defense is to spend time in a courtroom. When attorney Charles Oldham first began the practice of law, he worked at a small firm in Sanford and was in court almost every day. That is where he honed the skills needed for effective criminal defense: how the system works, how to investigate, how to handle discovery, when to negotiate and when to go to trial.

The goal at our law firm is to find the best outcome for the client.

Traffic offenses, DWI: Too many speeding tickets or a DWI drunk driving conviction can take away the driver’s license you need. In some cases, you can lose your freedom. Make sure you have an experienced lawyer who cares about the results.
Drug Offenses: Whether it is possession of a small amount of an illegal drug or drug manufacturing or trafficking, state court or federal court, do not face the charges without an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
Appeals: Our law firm handles appeals in criminal cases as well as in civil cases. We bring experience, strong writing skills and attention to detail to every appeal.
If you have been arrested or if you are under investigation for an alleged crime, we welcome your call. In criminal defense cases, we offer a free consultation. Contact us for an appointment. We represent clients from our office in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Charlotte Traffic Tickets/DWI Defense Lawyer
Working for the Best Resolution of Your Case
Most adults in North Carolina need to be able to drive — to work, to doctors’ appointments, to school, to meet family and community obligations. Too many traffic tickets or a DWI conviction can mean a loss of driving privileges, an increase in insurance rates and a public record that can harm your reputation.

DWI Defense · Traffic Ticket Defense · 704-323-8520 · Contact Us
At the Law Office of Charles M. Oldham, PLLC, in Charlotte, North Carolina, we have the experience it takes to effectively advocate for our clients. We also have a commitment to service — assuring that every client has the personal attention of attorney Charles Oldham.

Too Many Traffic Tickets, Too Many Points
What can you do when you have accumulated too many points on your driver’s license? Contact an attorney who understands your needs as well as the court’s concerns. There is rarely a dispute over facts: a car was clocked doing a certain speed, for example. But what can be negotiated is how the case is resolved. Experience counts — and Charles Oldham has the experience you need on your side.

Drunk Driving, a Life-Altering Charge
If you have been arrested for DWI, you probably know that DWI is a serious charge. If convicted, you could lose your license for a year. For many people, that can mean losing a job, health insurance and pension benefits. With so much on the line, you need a DWI defense lawyer who knows the rules and knows what to look for in a DWI case. Was the stop constitutional? Did the officer have probable cause? We have the experience it takes to investigate, find the weaknesses in a case, protect your rights and work for a resolution in your best interest.

DMV Hearing, Petition for Driving Rights
A bunch of speeding tickets or a DWI conviction can mean a driver’s license suspension. Our law firm can petition the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) for a special hearing where we can explain why you need to drive.

Personal Service, Experience, Creative Solutions
If you have been arrested on a drunk driving charge, if you have too many tickets (and points on your license), contact an experienced defense attorney. In criminal defense cases, we offer a free initial consultation at our Charlotte, North Carolina, office.

===========================

Charlotte Drug Offenses Defense Attorney
Whatever the Drug Charge, We Can Help
All criminal drug charges are serious, but the level of seriousness depends on the type and quantity of the drug. If you have been arrested on a drug charge, you need a defense lawyer who can investigate the charges and resolve the matter in your best interest.

Drug Charge Defense Lawyer · 704-323-8520 · Contact Us
As with any criminal conviction, a drug conviction can complicate the rest of your life. Criminal defense attorney Charles Oldham can help you understand the charges and the possible consequences. At the Law Office of Charles M. Oldham, PLLC, in Charlotte, North Carolina, you will always have the personal attention of your lawyer.

Marijuana, Crystal Meth, Heroin, Cocaine
While many drugs are illegal, the amount and type of drug can make a substantial difference in the charges. A small amount of marijuana, for example, is treated with less seriousness by the prosecutor than a large amount. It is important in any drug charge case to have a lawyer who knows how to investigate the charge, review the evidence and challenge the evidence itself (the amount, for example) and the way the evidence was obtained.

Possession, Selling, Manufacturing, Growing, Trafficking
Possession may mean the person arrested had a small amount for personal use. A larger amount of drug might be seen by the prosecutor as evidence of selling. Manufacturing crystal meth (methamphetamines) or growing marijuana is a far more serious charge, but will probably be in state court. In cases of large manufacturing and growing operations, the charge may go to federal court.

The most serious charge is trafficking, transporting illegal drugs across state lines and national boundaries. There is usually a larger network involved as well as a larger quantity of drugs. Those case are tried in federal court. Charles M. Oldham is licensed in all North Carolina state courts and all federal courts in North Carolina.

Any drug charge is serious and can damage your future opportunities and your reputation.

Personal Service, Experienced Defense Lawyer
No matter how small the charge may seem, even if you feel you should not have been charged, contact a criminal defense lawyer who can protect your rights and assure that you are treated fairly. At our law firm, located in Charlotte, we work for the best resolution available under the circumstances. For criminal defense clients, the initial consultation is free.

Civil and Criminal Appeals
Appeals Require Thorough Knowledge of the Rules
Appealing a court ruling or verdict requires an in-depth understanding of the law, an ability to write and attention to every detail. You will find those skills at the Law Office of Charles M. Oldham, PLLC, in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Experienced Appellate Lawyer · 704-323-8520 · Contact Us
Our law firm handles civil and criminal appeals in state and federal courts. Attorney Charles M. Oldham is licensed in all North Carolina state courts and all federal courts in North Carolina. When there is a chance that a court decision is mistaken, the appeals process offers a second chance. It is, by design, a rigorous process that demands precision.

What issues went wrong?
The first step in an appeal is to examine the trial transcript and find issues that compromised the verdict. You will want an appeals attorney who has the training and discipline to find issues that went wrong during the trial.

Everything is reduced to writing.
The appeals process is complex and lengthy. All arguments must be put in writing for the appeals judges. There are technical rules about how the information should be presented. Case law and citations from the transcripts must be on point, precise and accurate. Attorney Charles Oldham has handled appeals for his own clients and for other lawyers’ clients.

Personal Service, Experienced Appeals Attorney
An appeal takes time, experience and skill. Contact our law firm to discuss the appeal of a criminal or civil case in state or federal court.

A difficult economy can cause difficult problems.
A lot of business disputes involve a failure to pay for goods or services or a failure to provide the appropriate goods or services. When the financing dries up on a construction project, for example, that hurts the suppliers who provided materials and contractors who provided labor. The project owner is harmed to by the lack of promised financial backing.

It is important to have a business litigation lawyer who understands the dynamics of business and the legal tools available to resolve business disputes.

Our law firm defends against home foreclosures.
If a lender has notified you that your property will be foreclosed, talk to an attorney who can explain the process and your rights. A lender has to follow very specific rules from the time the loan was made and continuing throughout the life of the loan. New laws have added new protections for homeowners.

There may be additional ways to stop foreclosure, including negotiating a change in the loan. If keeping your home is important to you, contact an attorney who stays current with the changing legal requirements for foreclosures.

We help buyers and sellers resolve contract disputes.
It happens. Two parties sign a contract agreeing to a sale, and then one of the parties realizes the terms cannot be met. A buyer may not be able to obtain the necessary loan. The seller’s situation may change so that selling the home would not be practical. The choices? Negotiation or litigation. At our law firm, we work toward the solution that is in our client’s best interest.

When you are facing real estate litigation, attorney Charles Oldham will listen to your situation and work with you to resolve the problem. If you are seeking an experienced lawyer who offers personal service and creative solutions, contact us for an appointment.

What Will Happen to My Stuff?
That is a question we hear often: “What will happen to my stuff?” Estate planning takes the worry and guesswork out of what will happen. Our law firm also works with executors and family members to determine the proper distribution of a loved one’s estate.

Charlotte Estate Planning and Probate Lawyer · 704-323-8520 · Contact Us
At the Law Office of Charles M. Oldham, PLLC, in Charlotte, North Carolina, we help individuals and families make decisions that will assure their objectives are met: proper distribution of property, care for minor children and other dependents, protection from punitive taxes.

Wills and estate planning: From a simple will to complex estate planning, your estate planning attorney will listen carefully to understand your needs and develop a plan that meets those needs.
Probate and estate administration: Gathering all estate assets, paying debts and dividing the estate requires careful accounting and strict adherence to the deceased’s wishes.
Every family is unique, and that is a good reason to have an estate plan that fits you and your family. Are there children who may need a guardian? Do you have the right powers of attorney in place in case you cannot make your own decisions in the future?

Contact our law firm if you want to draft a will, develop an estate plan or handle the probate of a loved one’s estate. We are here to offer you personal service and solutions designed to meet your needs.

Charlotte Wills and Estate Planning Attorney
Planning for the Future With Wills and Trusts
An estate plan is a lot like a business plan. The will, trusts and powers of attorney that make up an estate plan answer the question: What would you like to accomplish? A well-thought-out estate plan can provide answers for you and your family.

Charlotte Wills and Trusts Lawyer · 704-323-8520 · Contact Us
Personal attention is essential to drafting a will and developing an estate plan. At the Law Office of Charles M. Oldham, PLLC, in Charlotte, North Carolina, you will speak directly with your attorney. Before making recommendations, your lawyer will understand your objectives, what’s important to you.

We look for the most effective ways to meet your goals.
Your estate plan may be a simple will. For most people, however, the plan will go further. It is a good idea to have powers of attorney in place so that if you are unable to make your own decisions about daily living, finances or medical care, a person you trust can make those decisions. A living will or health care power of attorney can give you and your family confidence that your wishes are known and will be followed.

What are your concerns? How can your estate plan meet those concerns?
There are all kinds of trusts that are designed to meet specific estate planning goals — testamentary trusts, charitable trusts, revocable trusts, irrevocable trusts, special needs trusts. Life insurance may be a part of your estate plan. Your estate plan should take into account state and federal taxes and their impact on your estate.

If you own a business or have significant assets in a business, you will want to work out a plan about how those assets should be reassigned. If you have children, you will want to make sure that guardianship issues are well planned.

Make sure you have an estate planning lawyer who knows the law and can explain how the law affects you, your family and your business.

Personal attention, creative solutions
Individuals and families are unique, and estate plans should be unique. At our law firm, we will listen to you and recommend solutions that meet your concerns. Contact us for an appointment to discuss your will and estate plan.

Charlotte Probate and Estate Administration Attorney · 704-323-8520 · Contact Us
Whether someone died with or without a will or other legal guidelines about how the estate should be settled, there are legal requirements that need to be met. If you are the executor or a family member with concerns about estate administration, contact the Law Office of Charles M. Oldham, PLLC, in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The process begins by gathering assets and debts.
Attorney Charles Oldham will give you and your family personal attention throughout the probate and estate administration process. Before any assets are distributed, any debts will need to be paid. Tangible assets such as cars, art or real property may need to be liquidated to pay debts.

Estate administration requires a careful inventory of all assets and distribution according to the will or other documents. If the deceased did not have a will, state statutes will determine where the assets will go.

Probate and estate administration is an exacting process. All assets must be accounted for, all debts paid and all remaining assets distributed. An estate administration lawyer can explain the process and assure all parties that the process is fair and according to legal requirements.

Personal attention from your attorney
At our law firm, you can be assured that you will speak directly with your lawyer about all aspects of the probate and estate administration process. Contact our law firm for an appointment or if you have questions.

We provide highly personalized service along with the experience and resources you might expect of a large law firm. Our reputable services, close attention to detail and confidentiality promote your success and account for the “what ifs” that inevitably arise in all divorce cases.

Similar to a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, Mr. Wedge will ensure that provisions are included in your divorce decree to account for possibilities such as the other party not holding up his or her end of the agreement, changing circumstances of children as they age and potential changes in your personal circumstances. You or the other party may need post-judgment modifications if either of you encounter substantial changes in circumstance such as decreased income, job loss, health issues or relocation for a job. We can assist you in pursuit of or defense against modifications to custody, support or alimony.

We also assist many clients with prenups and postnups, which may be very important if you want to ensure that assets gained before marriage, inherited assets or business assets are protected no matter what comes up.

Lancaster Uncontested Divorce Lawyer
Flat-Rate, Low-Cost, Uncontested/No-Fault Divorce Services
With the offer of services that promise do-it-yourself, cut-rate uncontested or no-fault divorces, the idea of solving the issue on your own can be tempting. However, as in a contested divorce, if the agreements are not completed correctly the first time, it is extremely difficult and very expensive to try to change any part of a divorce decree without a substantial change in circumstances. It is better to ensure that all agreements are in your best interests while protecting your rights and assets with the assistance of an experienced Lancaster uncontested divorce attorney the first time.

Many people initially believe that their divorce does not involve any controversial issues. When it comes down to negotiating child custody, support, alimony, division of any assets and/or debts, however, they often find that the other party is not on the same page.

If the other party has a lawyer, you need a lawyer. If there is anything controversial or complex about any agreement to be made in your divorce case, you should give strong consideration to professional legal representation.

Contact the law office of David F. Wedge, Attorney at Law, today to schedule an initial consultation with Mr. Wedge. We provide a flat rate, including filing fees, to spouses seeking a Pennsylvania uncontested/no-fault divorce. We can provide you with valuable assurances and legal protections at a reasonable charge. We offer you peace of mind and the knowledge that your case will be handled the right way from the beginning until it is finalized.

Informed and Dependable Consultation
Mr. Wedge has been practicing law in Lancaster County since 1981. He will walk you through the basics of family law and discuss your unique situation in detail with you before moving forward with anything. Every divorce case is unique, and you should be sure that you have all your bases covered from the beginning. No matter what kind of divorce case you have, it poses risks to your assets, your rights and your future. It is important to ensure that you are protected in any circumstance.

Agreements that are not reviewed with the discretion of an attorney serving your best interests could result in unequal debt burdens, unreasonable provisions or litigation in regard to an oversight down the road. Complexities can arise after your agreements are signed, but an experienced attorney can account for and protect your interests with a solidly developed plan for your finances and relationship with your ex-spouse post-divorce.

Lancaster Division of Assets Lawyer
Asset Division in Pennsylvania
Many people assume that they will split all assets and debt equally in divorce. Others may assume that they will keep all the assets they have earned, but many circumstances factor into how assets will be divided in divorce. The court will rule on the division of marital property and non-marital property. It must take statutory factors into account to determine equitable distribution of all assets gained and debt taken on during the marriage (marital property), including:

Gains on the value of assets regardless of acquisition
Pension plans
403(b) and 401(k) plans
Trusts
Securities and stock options
Real estate property
Business assets
Income
Other assets placed in joint ownership during the marriage
It is important to involve an experienced attorney from the beginning to ensure you obtain the most favorable outcome possible in your case. David F. Wedge, Attorney at Law, has been representing and counseling clients in Lancaster County and the surrounding areas since 1981. Our law firm can provide you with the support and due diligence necessary to advocate for your best interests and ensure the equitable distribution of assets.

Contact us today to schedule a free initial consultation with Mr. Wedge. As a dedicated Lancaster division of assets attorney, he is knowledgeable and detail-oriented in evaluating assets and protecting your financial future.

Exempt Property and Equitable Distribution
Any assets, property and debt acquired from the date of marriage to the date of separation will be evaluated and divided according to several statutory factors — unless it is assessed as exempt property such as:

Premarital equity or property
Property excluded by prenuptial or postnuptial agreement
Gifts or inheritance not jointly held
Property acquired after separation
Factors and Circumstances Determining the Division of Marital Property:

Length of the marriage
Previous marriage(s) of either party
Age, health, station, income, vocational skills, employability, estate, liabilities and needs of the parties
Contributions by either party to the increased earning potential or education of the other
Opportunity for future acquisitions of capital assets and income of each party
Sources of income of each party
Contributions or dissipation of each party in the acquisition, preservation, depreciation or appreciation of marital property, including that of a homemaker
Value of non-marital property, including exempt property of each party
Standard of living of the parties during the marriage
Tax consequences of any award and the economic circumstances of each party
Whether either party will be serving as the custodian of any dependent minor children
The involvement of an experienced lawyer early on makes the entire process smoother. Mr. Wedge can negotiate or litigate for the most favorable terms available in your case and guide you through the process with confidence.

Lancaster Child Custody Lawyer
Assisting Families in Child Support, Child Custody and Spousal Support
You may enter a divorce case concerned about your financial assets, but most people find that their most valued assets are their children. It is our duty to help you ensure that your child is protected and can live the life you envision for him or her. A child’s best interests are paramount in any divorce case, a point of view shared by the court. Once child support and custody agreements are determined, the court will determine the appropriate spousal support arrangement for your case.

It is crucial to have an experienced Pennsylvania lawyer advocate for your best interests in connection with all these agreements. Absent a substantial change in circumstances for you, your ex-spouse or your child, these agreements will dictate your future for years to come.

At the law office of David F. Wedge, Attorney at Law, we work to ensure these agreements are developed and ruled upon by the court for your best possible resolution the right way, the first time. Mr. Wedge has been serving clients in Lancaster County and the surrounding areas since 1981. Our law firm will provide you with personalized and attentive service from day one. Our dedication to your case is matched by the compassion with which we serve you and your family. Contact us today to schedule a free and confidential initial consultation.

Establishing Child Custody and Child Support
We will work to protect your parental rights, and we will assess your unique situation to pursue agreements that benefit you and your children concerning legal and physical custody. We give consideration to family dynamics, work schedules, and children’s activities and schooling to develop a custody and visitation schedule that fits your needs.

Child support is determined by the court with a set of guidelines, which we will help you evaluate according to your unique circumstances and the needs of your children. Major determining factors include:

Gross monthly incomes
Medical and educational needs of your children
Visitation time each parent will have
Determining Spousal Support
Spousal support/alimony is not determined by specific guidelines, but the court does account for several factors to establish if spousal support is necessary, including:

Length of your marriage
Disparities in achievable incomes
Financial investments and ownership of investments
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
Disabilities and benefits
Child support, child custody and visitation
Along with vocational experts, we will work to determine if you or your ex-spouse needs additional training or education to become employable. If either party is unable to work, that will be factored into the spousal support agreement. We will help you obtain a resolution that is fair and just in your particular situation.

DUI/DWI/Drunk Driving
Strong DUI/DWI Defense With A Focus On Results
If you’ve been arrested for drunk driving in the state of Pennsylvania, you need to contact a lawyer with experience in aggressive DUI defense as soon as possible. The consequences of facing a conviction for DUI/DWI can be serious.

You could lose your driving rights.
You could face serious fines and penalties.
Your insurance rates could rise dramatically.
You could lose your job or have difficulty getting future employment.
You could face jail time.
As an experienced attorney defending DUI cases in the Lancaster area, I can help you minimize the penalties and explore alternatives to drunk driving license suspensions or jail time.

Alternative for First Time Offenders
If you have been arrested on your first DUI offense, or if you have only one prior DUI conviction and it is more than 10 years prior, then you may have an alternative that will reduce the length of your license suspension and allow you to avoid jail time.

The Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program (ARD), can benefit people who have made an error in judgment, and reduce the duration of a license suspension or jail time. For a flat fee, we can help you fulfill the basic requirements to qualify for the ARD program, minimizing any impact to your driver’s license, your freedom and your ability to transact your life.

But, you have to act quickly. You can only apply for the ARD program within 30 days of your arrest to be eligible.

Expungements
Even if you aren’t eligible for ARD, our office has extensive experience assisting people in need of DUI defense. Under certain circumstances we can even help you have a DUI arrest or conviction removed from your record with DUI expungements that prevent the arrest or conviction from impacting your future. Given how easy the internet and online records has made the act of conducting a background check on any job applicant shouldn’t you take the necessary steps to protect yourself and your record from unwanted scrutiny?

Strong legal representation when you’ve been arrested on a DUI charge is always a wise move. Representation from an attorney who will explore every option in defending you will help in the long and the short term. We have a reputation for success and a proud standing as a law office you can rely on.

Call us today at 717-207-8362 or contact us online to schedule a free half-hour initial consultation to discuss your DUI arrest.

Lancaster Multiple DUI Offense Lawyer
Defending Against Sentence Enhancements and Protecting Your Rights
Pennsylvania courts consider your entire criminal history in DUI cases. DUI arrests, charges and/or convictions up to 10 years prior can affect your case and sentencing significantly. The court will account for convictions in Pennsylvania and any other state. Prior convictions are just one factor that can affect your case as a sentencing enhancement. Other factors such as high blood alcohol content (BAC), driving under the influence with kids in the car or driving recklessly can also enhance sentencing.

Multiple DUIs trigger mandatory sentencing, but that is greatly dependent on Pennsylvania’s three-tiered DUI punishment system, which includes:

General impairment: .08 to .099 BAC
High BAC: .10 to .159
Highest BAC: .16 and greater
For a 2nd DUI offense, you face a sentence of five days in jail to five years in prison and a fine of $300 to $10,000. On a 3rd DUI offense, you face a sentence of 10 days in jail to five years in prison and a fine of $500 to $10,000. These sentences and fines are determined on a case-by-case basis, and mandatory sentencing guidelines are based on each tier and number of prior convictions.

It is critical to get an attorney involved right away. You need an attorney who is experienced at defending against multiple DUI offenses in Lancaster County. David F. Wedge, Attorney at Law, provides clients throughout the area with serious and vigorous defense, and he has done so since establishing our firm in 1981.

Contact our law firm today to discuss the facts of your case and to fully understand the consequences you face. We provide free and confidential initial consultations.

Timing Is of the Essence in DUI Defense
There are two ways to beat a DUI charge, but quick action must be taken. We can move to suppress evidence if your DUI arrest was based on an illegal stop by law enforcement officials, and we can work with medical experts to challenge the results of Breathalyzer and blood tests. Both strategies must be pursued quickly, however, before tests are thrown out. We must have time to examine your case and your test results to provide you with the most robust defense possible.

A mandatory timeline also exists for the settlement or sentencing in your case, and you will have your license suspended or revoked, depending on the circumstances, immediately after your arrest. It takes a knowledgeable, talented and attentive lawyer to protect your rights and driving privileges.

Mr. Wedge will fight for your best possible outcome and to mitigate consequences as much as possible if your charges cannot be dropped. It may also be to your advantage to accept a plea bargain agreement, but this should never be done without experienced legal representation. You could be agreeing to provisions that will severely impact your ability to drive, keep your job, retain custody of your children, obtain future employment and/or pursue educational opportunities.

You may qualify for the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program if you have only one prior DUI conviction, and it was more than 10 years ago.

Lancaster ARD Program Lawyer
First-Time Offenders’ Alternative to DUI Punishment
On your first DUI offense in Pennsylvania, you may qualify for a sentencing alternative called the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program. You may also qualify if you have only one prior DUI conviction, and it was more than 10 years ago. The ARD program can reduce your license suspension and fines, and it may allow you to avoid jail time.

Entering the ARD program also means that you may be entering a guilty plea, but we can work aggressively to dismiss the DUI charge in certain circumstances. Following successful completion of the ARD program, you will be eligible, if necessary, to expunge a conviction from your criminal record with the assistance of a lawyer.

At the law office of David F. Wedge, Attorney at Law, we work with clients in Lancaster County and the surrounding area to evaluate whether the ARD program is in their best interests. We offer flat fees for ARD application, fulfillment of basic program requirements for qualification and expungement of a conviction from your permanent criminal record once you have completed the program.

Contact us today to schedule a free consultation with Mr. Wedge. He will discuss the facts of your case and the 30-day deadline for applying for ARD and lay out your best legal options. Timing is critical.

A Clear Choice for First-Time Offenders
The ARD program can minimize adverse impacts on your driver’s license, your freedom and your ability to pursue opportunities that come along in life. ARD allows people who have made a temporary error in judgment a second chance in exchange for community service and minimized license suspension:

A conviction absent ARD will suspend your license for one year.
Depending on the circumstances of your arrest and your blood alcohol content (BAC), under ARD you will lose your license for just one to three months.
But you must act quickly. You are eligible to apply for ARD only within 30 days of your arrest, so it is crucial to consult with a Lancaster ARD program attorney as soon as possible. We can provide you with an assured outcome in your case and determine if you are eligible for reduced penalties.

Call us today at 717-207-8362 or toll free at 866-935-9912, or contact us online to take advantage of our free initial consultation and flexible payment options.

Lancaster DUI Expungement Lawyer
Erasing Your Criminal Record to Benefit Your Future
Unknown to most people, DUI charges and convictions appear on your criminal record. The vast majority of employers perform background checks if you are being considered for a job. In addition to employers, schools, banks, other lenders and the armed services perform background checks to ensure that their candidates and applicants do not have criminal histories. Expunging your criminal record means erasing your criminal record.

With DUI convictions, you are eligible for expungement only if you have completed the Pennsylvania Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program. An expungement can prevent a conviction from impacting your future any further, but granting expungement is up to the discretion of the court. It is critical that you are represented by a lawyer you can trust and rely on.

At the law office of David F. Wedge, Attorney at Law, we charge a flat rate to expunge a DUI ARD conviction from your criminal record. Our professional service includes the filing fees for expungement with the court. Mr. Wedge has been serving Lancaster County clients since 1981 and has extensive experience as a Lancaster DUI expungement attorney. That experience allows our law firm to act with precision, efficiency and effectiveness in producing your best possible outcome.

Record sealing can protect your life from unwanted scrutiny in the short and long term. Expungement provides you relief, allows you to place past errors in judgment behind you and offers you a fresh start.

Wills and Estates
Making Your Plan for Your Estate A Reality
Estate planning isn’t just for the wealthy or elderly.
Estate planning doesn’t just deal with who you leave your money to.
A will isn’t just written to work for today only.
Your spouse or child may not be the beneficiary of your estate if you don’t have a will.
If you have children, a home, a wife, retirement savings or an estate that friends or family may care about, then you have a responsibility to protect your heirs. But, even if you have none of those things, yet plan to someday, you can work with a lawyer to plan for your estate now and create a document that will grow with you. Contact our office to hear how we can help you prepare for the future.

Planning For the Future
It is easy to understand why people are hesitant to address the questions of their mortality, but consider the alternative. Imagine your wife or child in court in the midst of dealing with their grief to try and retain the right to your home, and savings. Imagine the court making decisions about who your child will live with in your absence because you did not.

Whether you are just starting your family or you’ve been divorced and remarried, you can plan for an estate that will grow with you and your wealth and that will make sure your wishes are carried out in the future.

Protecting Your Present
Along with a strong estate plan that secures your estate, you also want to consider drawing up documents that put your wishes in place when you are incapacitated. From powers of attorney to living wills, you can make sure that should you not be in a position to make decisions for yourself, someone you trust is making those decisions for you.

Just as you wouldn’t want to leave your estate to the courts to decide, so too you don’t want decisions about your life to be left to someone you don’t know or trust. We can guide you through the decisions you want to make now to ensure the future for yourself and your family.

For estate administration we provide services at an agreed upon hourly rate, not a percentage of what your family members have worked hard to earn.

Lancaster Trust Lawyer
Helping Clients Facilitate the Prosperity of Their Beneficiaries
Creating a trust can provide your heirs with peace of mind and tax efficiencies upon the distribution of your estate. If you have a child or another heir who requires special needs planning or other unique care or consideration, a trust can provide you several options to ensure that his or her needs are met when you pass away or if you become incapacitated. Estate planning is not about protecting assets for yourself. It is about setting up provisions and protecting assets that can provide for the well-being of your heirs. A clearly defined trust can help your estate avoid probate.

At the law office of David F. Wedge, Attorney at Law, we can help you prepare a trust that clearly defines your wishes and provides for efficient distribution to your heirs. We will guide you through the process and make sure that you understand every option available to you before we proceed. We will discuss the advantages of revocable and irrevocable trusts with you. Depending upon the control you would like to have over the trust and its distribution, you will want to select a type that best accomplishes your goals and meets the needs of your beneficiaries.

A revocable trust can provide you with some control over its management while you are alive. You can determine how and when the trust will be distributed and for what purpose. You can include provisions such as age, time, use of assets and other requirements of the trust’s beneficiary or trustee as you wish.
An irrevocable trust provides for even greater tax efficiencies, but it also requires you to relinquish control over the assets transferred to the trust. Commonly, large real estate properties and life insurance policies are transferred to irrevocable trusts.
It is important to consult with an experienced Lancaster trust attorney to determine which type of trust is right for you and your beneficiaries. Attorney David F. Wedge has worked with clients in Lancaster County and the surrounding area on estate planning and trust and tax matters as a lawyer in solo practice since 1981.

Our law firm keeps up to date on Pennsylvania inheritance tax law, and we will ensure that any trusts incorporated in your estate plan provide for the combination of tax efficiency and asset control you desire. We assist clients in establishing trusts that meet their needs, including:

Simple trusts
Special needs and supplemental needs trusts
Education trusts
Farm trusts
Life insurance trusts
Personal residence trusts
Charitable trusts
Charitable remainder trusts
Asset protection trusts
Testamentary trusts

Lancaster Probate Lawyer
Straightforward and Dependable Guidance Through Estate Administration
When a loved one passes away, it can be difficult to shift your attention to concerns about his or her estate. It is important to begin taking action to ensure assets are protected and your loved one’s wishes are carried out properly as soon as possible. Doing this on your own, however, in an already stressful and emotionally taxing situation can be very difficult and confusing. Working with an experienced estate administration lawyer, on the other hand, can ease your burdens and provide crucial assistance to ensure that the distribution of the decedent’s estate follows his or her intentions. Without knowledge and efficient legal advice, Pennsylvania law will govern the administration, and critical efficiencies may be lost.

At the law offices of David F. Wedge, Attorney at Law, we work diligently to help our clients throughout Lancaster County and the surrounding area gain peace of mind in the probate process and estate administration. In working with an attorney, you may have concerns about paying a percentage of your inheritance for legal services. We do not charge in this manner. Our law firm provides legal services at a reasonable hourly rate for your needs. You do not pay a percentage just to close your estate either.

Contact us today to schedule an initial consultation with Mr. Wedge. In your initial meeting, he will help you understand the legal process of estate administration and/or probate, and he will discuss your best opportunities for cost savings.

Knowledgeable Representation When You Need It Most
In some cases, distribution of estate assets and the intentions of decedents are contested. We work to ensure our clients’ best interests are incorporated and strongly advocated for in will contests and other issues that might arise such as:

Unscrupulous disinheritance
Ambiguous wills
Disappointed heirs
Fiduciary misdeeds
Property right disputes
Tax disputes
Developing an Estate Plan to Facilitate Efficient Distribution
We can help you make sure your estate is distributed according to your wishes. It is beneficial to work with a qualified Lancaster probate attorney who is thoroughly familiar with the process of probate and estate administration.

A will, medical power of attorney (also known as a living will) and health care directives are important to put in place in case you become incapacitated. Such professionally drafted legal documents can protect assets and make provisions for assets before something unfortunate occurs. We can help your family avoid probate complexities and distressing situations. If you have children or heirs with special needs, we can also discuss guardianships that can ensure their needs are taken care of and your wishes are followed.

New York Ladder Fall Lawyer
Falls from ladders are common accidents on construction sites. Moreover, injuries can be serious; injured workers may suffer immediate damage or they may experience lingering effects of the accident for many weeks or months. In either instance, construction workers injured in ladder accidents may be eligible to recover compensation for their expenses, damages and losses. It is important to discuss this with a knowledgeable accident attorney to find out about the best course of action.

New York Ladder Accident Attorneys
At Antin, Ehrlich & Epstein, LLP Attorneys at Law, our New York lawyers advocate for injured construction workers, including those who have fallen from ladders. Each of our principal attorneys has more than 25 years of legal experience helping injured clients recover compensation after an injury while working on a construction site. We use that experience and our commitment to aggressive advocacy to build strong cases for our clients.

Identifying the Legal Rights of Injured Construction Workers
Construction workers injured while using ladders are protected by New York Labor Law 240(1), also known as the Scaffolding Law. This law holds the property owner and the general contractor liable when a worker on a construction site suffers an injury while using a ladder. This is true even if a ladder problem was caused by the manufacturer, the seller or a subcontractor. It may also be possible to demonstrate that the injured worker was not properly trained or that the supervisor required workers to use ladders known to have defects. Whatever the cause of the ladder accident, clients rely on our attorneys to help them obtain full and fair compensation.

There are additional laws that may apply in ladder accident cases. For example, a worker injured because of the negligence of a third party, such as a subcontractor, may be able to seek compensation from that party as well. One of the knowledgeable lawyers at our law firm can help you determine the course of action that will maximize your recovery.

New York Forklift Accident Lawyer
Forklifts are one of the workhorses of the construction industry. They are ubiquitous on all types of construction sites, from commercial skyscrapers to road repair operations. However, they also cause numerous injuries every year. When an accident with a forklift causes injury or death, it is important to consult an experienced construction accident lawyer to learn about your rights. You may be able to recover compensation for your injuries.

Experienced New York Injury Lawyers
At the New York law firm of Antin, Ehrlich & Epstein, LLP Attorneys at Law, our attorneys handle all types of construction accident injury cases, including those stemming forklift accidents. We understand the relevant laws and build strong cases that we are always prepared to take to trial if necessary to obtain the compensation for our injured clients. Each of our principal lawyers has more than 25 years of experience advocating for clients injured in construction accidents.

Filing Personal Injury Claims for Injured Workers
Our attorneys advocate for clients in personal injury cases. Because New York workers’ compensation may not cover all the expenses of an injured worker, our attorneys file third-party personal injury lawsuits against the party liable for the accident. This could include the forklift manufacturer, an outside forklift maintenance company, a subcontractor, or other entity or individual who is not the injured person’s employer. It could include an outside trainer who failed to properly stress forklift safety.

Examples of Forklift Accidents
Forklift tip-overs are common accidents, occurring because the forklift was improperly loaded or designed in such a way to become easily unbalanced. Design and manufacturing errors such as this are frequently cited as causes of forklift accidents and injuries. There may be no cab door to protect the operator. Subcontractors may fail to properly train forklift operators or remove warning signs installed in the cab area. These types of incidents may result in injury to the operator of the forklift or to persons in the area.

New York Labor Law 240(1)
New York Labor Law 240(1) permits construction workers injured in crane accidents to seek compensation from the general contractor and property owner. Engineers may have failed to supervise the rigging of the crane properly. The riggers themselves may have lacked sufficient training. A load may have fallen from the crane, hitting those below. The operator of the crane may have been distracted, ill, under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or showing other signs of crane operator negligence. The crane could tip over because it was improperly secured. The crane could crash into another building or work site. The crane could hit electrical wires. There are many types of crane accidents covered by New York’s scaffolding law, and our attorneys investigate each thoroughly when developing a case.

Types of Claims After a Crane Accident
Individuals injured in crane accidents are probably eligible for workers’ compensation benefits that are available to all workers injured on the job, regardless of fault. They may also be able to file third-party personal injury lawsuits against a subcontractor, supplier or visitor to the site who can be shown to be responsible for the crane accident.

NYC Faulty Flooring Attorney
Brooklyn Dangerous Floor Lawyer
Falls from heights are a major cause of serious injury and fatality on construction sites. Objects falling from buildings under construction are another cause of head injuries, broken bones and death. Although there are many reasons that workers and construction debris fall from heights, faulty flooring is a major cause of these types of accidents. If you are injured because of faulty flooring at a construction site or a loved one is killed, you may be able to recover compensation and damages for your losses and expenses. Consult an experienced construction accident attorney for advice about your rights.

New York Injury Lawyers With More Than 25 Years of Legal Experience
At the New York law firm of Antin, Ehrlich & Epstein, LLP Attorneys at Law, our principal lawyers each have more than 25 years of legal experience assisting with clients with injury and wrongful death claims, including those arising from construction accidents involving faulty flooring. We build on this experience when developing construction accident cases, consulting with experts and specialists such as medical providers, safety professionals, engineers and construction management experts to fully understand the accident and its effect on our client’s life.

Causes of Flooring Accidents on Construction Sites
Holes in flooring, unsecured boards in temporary flooring and improperly supported flooring can cause serious accidents, such as trip and falls, and can allow objects to fall from buildings under construction, causing injury or death to those working below. When faulty flooring is combined with other defects, such as weak, missing or inadequate guard rails, the chances of a construction worker falling from a great height increase significantly. Our attorneys undertake thorough investigations in order to determine negligence.

Advising You About Your Rights, Keeping You Informed
Our lawyers advise clients injured because of faulty flooring at construction sites about their legal rights. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, we may be able to file personal injury lawsuits.

Determining the best legal strategy requires us to identify the liable party. If that party was the injured person’s employer, a workers’ compensation claim is in order. If a third party such as the driver of a delivery van can be held responsible, our lawyers can file a personal injury claim. We can also file a personal injury lawsuit if you were just passing by a construction site. We investigate thoroughly so that we employ the approach most likely to produce favorable results for our client.

Defendants in Road Construction Cases

Our law firm handles cases involving public works projects, making sure that clients understand the deadlines that are specific to claims against governmental agencies.

Causes of Accidents
Accidents involving road construction are sometimes caused by poorly trained, distracted or drunk equipment operators.

NYC Trench Collapse Injury Lawyer
Trench work is one of the most dangerous types of activity on a construction site. If a trench collapses, workers may be buried, crushed or trapped. Indeed, most trench collapses cause death rather than injury and result in wrongful death claims.

Hazards of Trench Work
Because of the significant hazards of working in trenches, there are many safety standards and regulations that are supposed to apply to the management and oversight of trench work. When a trench accident occurs, a primary cause is often the failure to follow accepted procedures for shoring, covering, wiring or digging.

Protecting Your Rights When You Have Been Injured
A car accident, a dangerous fall on a slippery floor, a dog bite attack, a scaffolding failure at a construction site — personal injury accidents happen every day, and each one is a painful challenge for the injured person and, often, for that person’s family.

Will the insurance company be fair in its settlement. Will you have the financial help to get the medical attention you need and to pay your bills? These are important questions to ask after a personal injury accident.

Oldham, PLLC, in Charlotte, North Carolina, we have the skills and knowledge to investigate accidents, talk with witnesses, determine who was at fault, and negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance company. If the settlement offered is not fair, we can take the case to a judge and jury.

Car and truck accidents: In an instant, an auto accident can change a life. Your job is to get medical treatment and focus on recovery. A personal injury lawyer can handle the insurance claim.
Slip and fall accidents: Wet spots on a supermarket floor, a broken stairway or debris left on a walkway can cause serious falls and injuries. Talk to a lawyer about premises liability.
Construction accidents: When a worker is injured, Workers’ Compensation will pay benefits. But if someone other than the employer is at fault, the worker may have a third-party personal injury claim.
Dog bites: The dog’s owner is liable for dog bite injuries. Ask an attorney to talk to the homeowners’ insurance company.
The insurance company has lawyers. They also have a concern about their own profits. To obtain a fair settlement, contact a personal injury lawyer who has a personal concern about your welfare and who knows how to obtain a fair settlement. In personal injury cases, we offer free initial consultations.

In Workers’ Compensation, there are many procedural requirements and deadlines that must be met, in order for your claim to be granted. Don’t let the procedural details prevent you from receiving justice. All that should matter is that you were injured at work.

CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS
Maximum Money Awards for Construction Injuries
At Keogh Crispi, P.C., we represent union workers, union journeymen and undocumented construction workers who have suffered injuries on the job. Our New York construction accident lawyers can help you get adequate compensation and justice for medical bills, pain, suffering and long-term anguish.

We prepare every case for trial right from the start. Only when the other attorneys know that we are willing and prepared to take the case to court will they offer the maximum money award. We want to get the maximum financial compensation for your injuries.

GRAVITY-RELATED ACCIDENTS AND INJURIES
Gravity-related injuries are extremely common in the construction business. Injuries from roof falls, scaffold falls, and dangerous falling objects and debris are among the most common — and the most devastating — construction injuries. In many instances, under New York law, a construction worker injured in a gravity related injury cannot be held partially responsible. The insurance company is prevented from claiming you are partially responsible for the accident.

Construction site falls
Scaffold accidents
Roof fall accident
Ladder accidents
Crane accidents and falling equipment
Open elevator shaft way accidents
Unguarded openings
Falling objects and debris
Trench collapse injuries
Excavation injuries
Holes in construction floors
Equipment-related Accidents and Injuries
In far too many cases, poor manufacturing or maintenance of the construction equipment causes serious injuries.

Industrial accidents
Unsafe equipment
Machinery accidents
Construction site supervisor negligence
Forklift injuries
Welding and iron work
Negligent Safety Procedures
Major construction sites should have site safety managers to oversee the safety components of the work environment and protecting the workers from unsafe weather conditions, dangerous debris on the work site or other hazardous conditions. Some sites simply don’t have these people managing the site as they should, and in other cases, the negligence of other crew members causes unsafe conditions on the job.

Improper signaling
Construction workers hit by highway drivers
Run over by construction vehicles
Construction safety gear
Improper cleanup and maintenance
Electrocution and explosion
Construction site burn injuries
Flame retardant clothing failure burns
Cutting injuries

INJURIES IN PUBLIC PLACES
Our Proactive Personal Injury Attorneys Are Here For You
We will represent you in a slip-and-fall accident or in an assault that arose because of negligent security. Our law firm has mastered the New York codes and standards governing premises-related accidents. Keogh Crispi, P.C. has won many substantial verdicts and settlements in New York City premises accident cases.

We have successfully represented clients injured in department stores, restaurants, grocery stores, banks, hospitals and other buildings open to the public. We know how to maximize compensation for past, present and future losses and damages in the most complex of cases, which every case eventually becomes when it comes up against tough defense lawyers.

What Is Premises Liability?
Premises liability is a very large area of law, which falls under the category of personal injury. If you have been injured while on the property of another person, because of the negligence of the owner or property manager, you may have a premises liability case.

Premises injuries may occur in many places, including

Office buildings
Shopping malls
Grocery stores
Hospitals
Parking structures
Apartment buildings
Schools
Playgrounds
Universities
If you have suffered an injury due to the negligence of another party contact us at 212-518-2417. Our attorneys are ready to help you right away.

Property Owners Have Obligations To Keep Visitors Reasonably Safe
Under the law, grocery stores must clean up spills quickly, commercial buildings must fix stairs or railings that are damaged or defective, and shopping malls are required to provide adequate security for customers. Not doing so is careless and negligent. You may have a case for substantial recovery compensation.

While there are many different types of premises liability cases, slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall are the most common. In a slip and fall scenario the victim may slip on a wet area on the floor causing injury. In a trip and fall the victim may trip over stairs, debris, or uneven pavement causing injury. In the event that a property owner fails to protect people on the property they may be liable under New York law.

Property owners have a legal duty to keep their buildings and surrounding premises in reasonably safe condition. If you are injured in an unsafe building or a structure, you deserve to be compensated for the damage done to you. Likewise, if you are attacked because of negligent security in a building or parking garage, you are entitled to receive damages.

PROVIDING INJURED CHILDREN WITH COMPASSIONATE, EXPERIENCED LEGAL GUIDANCE
While a serious accident can happen to anyone, young children are particularly vulnerable to unexpected injury. If your child has been injured due to another person’s negligent actions, our attorneys will vigorously advocate for your best interests in a personal injury claim.

We have a proven track record handling a wide range of injury claims throughout New York City. At Keogh Crispi, our lawyers take an aggressive approach to representing our clients in the courtroom, yet a compassionate approach when working with clients ― particularly when our clients are children.

Contact us any time, day or night, at 212-518-2417, or email us online. Our child injury attorneys offer FREE consultations, and we only charge a fee if we obtain you a settlement or verdict.

Holding Responsible Parties Accountable For Your Child’s Injuries
At Keogh Crispi, we have the experience to handle a wide range of claims involving child injuries, including claims associated with:

Drowning
Motor vehicle accidents
Dog bites and other animal attacks
Medical malpractice, including birth-related injuries
Serious and catastrophic injuries, including burns, broken bones and amputations
We will take a comprehensive, results-oriented approach to investigating the nature of the accident and make certain that the responsible party is held accountable for negligent actions. Our lawyers will investigate breach of duty, whether premises liability issues were involved in the accident and seek all sources for compensation so your child has measurable justice for what has been taken from him or her.

What About Accidents At Day Care?
Injuries that happen at day care and other care facilities are truly tragic. In New York City, the standard of care is much higher than just the ordinary standard of care for day care centers and schools. Adults who are entrusted with the care of the children are obligated to assume the role of a parent, providing the same level of care a parent would provide. This includes responsibilities for making sure corners are not sharp, outlets are covered, cords are hidden and toys are safe for children in all day care areas.

If your child has suffered an injury while at a day care facility, Keogh Crispi will provide guidance and support.

===========================

MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS
You should not have to endure medical costs, lost wages and long-term pain and suffering just because someone else was driving negligently. Unfortunately, for most New York City auto accident victims, the car accident itself is just the beginning of the injustice.

Almost immediately after an auto accident, the insurance company representatives will contact you to try and get you to talk about the accident. These individuals are trained by the insurance company to be experts at shrinking or even eliminating legitimate claims by unfairly shifting blame on victims.

It is essential to contact an attorney as soon as possible after a motor vehicle accident, before making statements to insurance representatives. Please call our firm now at 212-518-2417.

Our New York City attorneys have more than 40 years of experience with auto accidents and other types of personal injury litigation. We will handle the insurance companies for you and fight for the best money award possible in your unique case.

However, you must be able to be able to demonstrate the cause of your accident in order to obtain compensation. We will conduct a thorough investigation with industry experts to determine who was responsible for your accident.

Once we have determined what happened, we have the courtroom experience to make sure the negligent party is held accountable. By preparing all our cases for trial, we frame your case for your best possible settlement opportunity.
