Man released from jail after drunk driving crash

People in New York who are arrested after being involved in a crash in which they were accused of being drunk will no doubt want to know how they might ever be able to defend themselves or move forward with their lives.

Woman facing charges for alleged sex trafficking

People in New York who find themselves suddenly charged with serious crimes learn quickly the importance of remembering that the criminal justice system provides them with the guaranteed opportunity to be treated fairly and defend themselves.

The innocent spouse rule and tax liability

New York residents who find themselves faced with the prospect of an unexpected tax bill may well need to review some actions taken by their spouses or former spouses. In some cases, one spouse may legitimately be unaware of errors on a tax return prepared by the other spouse and therefore wish to remove their personal liability for any tax debt associated with such errors. The Internal Revenue Service has what it calls the innocent spouse rule that may apply to people in this type of situation.
