Could Technology Combat Driving Under the Influence?

Driving Under the Influence (DUI) is dangerous and the tough laws in Washington State haven't eliminated them. There may be new technology on the horizon to help make our roadways safer. Currently, the government does not require installation of anti-DUI devices or technology on new automobiles. Within the next couple years new technology designed to prevent folks from starting their car and driving if they are over the legal limit for alcohol may actually be mandatory on new vehicles.

Understanding your role as a power of attorney

Just knowing that you are a power of attorney may not be enough for you to effectively undertake the role for your family member in Washington. Being sure that you are fully aware of your responsibilities and under what conditions you will be required to take over may help you to be more confident and effective in your efforts. At Cooney Law Offices, P.S., we are experienced in helping families in their efforts to plan and execute their estate. 

What decisions does a durable power of attorney cover?

One of the most common parts of estate planning involves signing a durable power of attorney form that gives an agent the authority to make certain decisions on your behalf. In Washington, the law allows your agent to make a variety of medical and financial choices if you are unable to communicate those decisions yourself.

Will My DUI Be In The Paper?

When someone is facing a DUI or other criminal charge they often ask how to minimize the publicity about their case or how to keep their case out of the paper. Generally, there are two points where a criminal case could be in the news: at the beginning when the events occur and at the end when the court case resolves.
