Living in Texas means being a good Texan. For those who need help now and then, Austin mediation is available for a fee. Did you talk on the phone while driving ? You probably knew better, but the officer was just doing his job, trying to keep society safe. There is no sense in someone getting run over for a cell phone call. Perhaps one of those automatic red light cameras got the best of you that day you were late to work. You may need someone to represent you if you want to fight it.
The news reports that there were 31,000 to 40,000 new laws put on the book in 2010. That is around 620 new laws per state of the union. You are aware that "ignorance of the law is no excuse". Now you know that if you have a family problem a family lawyer Austin will have to be contacted. If you are lucky, one of the lawyers may have a discount available to offer.
