To Vape Or Not To Vape

As several states have legalized marijuana, Texas has stuck to its cowboy roots and resisted change.  However, the Lone Star state has acquiesced to some of the public and business pressure to legalize or at least decriminalize marijuana and other products containing THC.  This last legislative session, the Texas Congress legalized hemp and hemp-based products to appease Texas hemp farmers.   However, little has changed regarding the consequences of being caught with a vape pen containing THC.  It may come as a surprise to some that possession of a vape or e-cigarette pen with THC is automatically classified as a felony.  Most people know that possession...

All White Juries

[vc_row][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text] How Racism Shapes Jury Selection Eliminating jurors solely based on race is illegal.  However, every day in courtrooms throughout America, black people are still excluded from serving on juries.  This racist practice is a travesty. The principles this Country are founded on have always been loftier than their actual application. Our founders dreamt of a country different from the monarchies that governed Europe – one in which the people chose their leaders, constitutional rights were protected, and a group of their peers decided whether the government could take their liberty.  Again, these have been lofty goals, but they were meant to only apply to...

Below I explain why this assumption is false and why we vigorously challenge insurance companies who attempt to use this misinformation as a shield. What is a MIST Car Wreck claim? MIST is an...

[vc_row][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text] Claiming Your Rights As A Father The movie Life featuring Eddie Murphy (Ray Gibson) and Martin Lawrence (Claude Banks) is hilarious. They live in New York City but during a moonshine run to the deep south they end up in a southern prison working on a chain gang. In a funny scene, a disabled black inmate secretly fathers a child with the white daughter of the warden. When the child is born, the warden goes ballistic trying to discover which black inmate fathered his half-black grandchild. To humiliate the warden, several of the inmates claimed to be the father, including a...

DWI Car Wrecks

[vc_row][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text] Let Someone Else Drive New Year’s Eve is approaching fast.  Like many Texans, you may be planning to celebrate with some bubbly, a little Henny, all while driving.  You should be warned, however, because the consequences can be brutal for causing a car wreck while intoxicated.  In 2017, intoxicated drivers caused 7,669 car wrecks in Texas.  Of these, 944 were fatal. Nationally, the Center for Disease Control says on its website: Every day, 29 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver.1 Thisis one death every 50 minutes.1 The annual cost of alcohol-related crashes totals more than $44 billion.2 The State of Texas punishes intoxicated...
