When is a dog considered a public nuisance?

If you are the owner of a dog in New Mexico, it is your responsibility to properly care for your pet and to ensure it does not become a public nuisance. According to Animal Protection of New Mexico, an animal that is a public nuisance causes annoyance or trouble for a number of other people. There are different ways your pet could be considered a public nuisance. If you do not stop the behavior or the issues that are causing the problem, you could be charged with a misdemeanor offense.  

Avoiding probate for small estates

You often hear estate planning experts in Roswell espouse the wisdom in avoiding having an estate go to probate. This is due to the fact that the cost of probate is taken directly from an estate's assets, which could lower each beneficiary's interest in it. For this reason, many come to us here at the Sanders Law Firm after the death of a loved one panicking that they will lose almost the entire value of the decedents' estates in probate costs. If you share the same concern, not to worry; there is a simple method to avoiding probate (even when a decedent took no action to do so while he or she was still alive). 

Can breath test results be challenged?

The shared image that most in Roswell have in reference to drunk driving it likely that of a person outside his or her car blowing into a handheld device under the supervision of a law enforcement officer. Despite measuring one's breath, the actual reading being sought is the alcohol content in one's blood. This might immediately prompt the question of how can a breath measurement say anything abouit your blood? Furthermore, how accurate is such a measurement, and should it be viewed as the sole factor when determining if you are guilty of driving under the influence?

Detailing power of attorney expectations

As you prepare to dive deep into your estate planning in Roswell, it is important to remember that during this process, you should not only consider what will happen after you are gone, but also what could potentially happen towards the end of your life. Many come to us here at the Sanders Law Firm wondering how to best prepare for the event that they lose the ability to care for themselves (either through incapacitation or other means). If you share the same concern, then you should consider granting a trusted family member or friend power of attorney.
