It has been a while

It has been a while since the last post, trials and practice demands have kept me away. Interesting doings in the RI courts. Recent Supreme court decision on DUI offenses. the Supreme Court has stated that the right to a confidential phone call only applies to a call to one's attorney. You have a right to a confidential call! Use it!

Return to school

With the return of students to the University of Rhode Island we see more students need the services of experienced counsel. I have represented many URI students for matters from DUI, possession of controlled substances, and serious personal injuries.

Dog Bite

The Rhode Island supreme court has upheld a longstanding rule relating to dog bite liability for the pet owner.The rule in Rhode Island allows a dog "one-bite" before liability on the pet owner can be claimed. The pet owner is liable if the dog has bitten a victim at least once before, on the second or subsequent bites the owner is liable, for the damages caused by the bite. The damages from a dogbite can be severe, not only physical but psychological. The Rhode General assembly may address this in it's upcoming session.
