How DUI convictions may affect licensed professionals

A DUI conviction is no picnic for anyone. Potential penalties in Pennsylvania can range from a fine to several years in jail along with a period of license suspension, depending on the specific offense and other factors. Anyone convicted of a DUI can also expect to see insurance premiums skyrocket.

A brief overview of the homebuying process

Purchasing a new home in Greensburg can be exciting. Many people go into the process knowing exactly what they want in a house but not fully comprehending what happens once they find that perfect match. At Schimmizi Law, LLC, we understand that homebuying can be intimidating, especially if it is your first time. Here are the basics you need to know about what will happen when you purchase your house.

Are breath test device results reliable?

When people in Pennsylvania are pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving, they may be asked to submit to a roadside breath test. These small portable machines are designed to determine drivers’ blood alcohol content level. Law enforcement officers use the results to ensure that motorists are not driving at or above the legal limit of 0.08 percent. Although using these devices is a standard procedure for law officers across the United States, research shows that the results of these tests are not always accurate. In fact, one in every four people who take a breath test will have elevated BAC results and may be wrongfully charged of a DUI.

What documents are involved in purchasing a home?

Once you found your dream house in Pennsylvania, the process to actually make it your own may seem time-consuming and tedious, at best. Even so, this is not the time to start rushing. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau explains that there are a number of legal documents that you will need to study carefully before signing on the dotted line and starting to pack.

Restaurant ownership groups abandons Chapter 11 bankruptcy plans

Those who run small businesses in Greensburg likely have lofty expectations of success during their initial days in operation. However, no company is immune to financial struggles at any point during its lifecycle. Should a small business accumulate enough liabilities that bankruptcy begins to seem like a viable debt relief option, the hope may still remain that it will be able to continue operating. With a Chapter 11 bankruptcy case, a business owner or ownership group can present a reorganization plan to both the court and its creditors that, if approved, would allow the company to survive. Yet business owners who start out with that goal in mind may not always end up achieving it.
