Mory Law has specialized in criminal, personal injury and DUI cases. We have dedicated our expertise in these areas to better help our clients reach their objectives and resolve their legal issues.
Every tort claim, regardless of its basis, whether intentional, negligence, or strict liability, has two basic issues—liability and damages. Was the defendant liable for the damages you sustained, and, if so, what is the nature and extent of your damages? If you can prove liability and damages, our system of justice will award you compensation for your loss.
Criminal law involves prosecution by the government of a person for an act that has been classified as a crime. A “crime” is any act or omission (of an act) in violation of a public law forbidding or commanding it. Crimes include both felonies (more serious offenses — like murder or rape) and misdemeanors (less serious offenses — like petty theft or jaywalking). Felonies are usually crimes punishable by imprisonment of a year or more, while misdemeanors are crimes punishable by less than a year. However, no act is a crime if it has not been previously established as such either by statute or common law.
Driving Under Influence (DUI)
Under California law, auto insurance companies are forbidden from taking action against a policy midterm. So if a driver is arrested midterm, the insurance company does not have the right to immediately raise the premium or cancel the policy. If the driver is applying for new coverage at the time of the DUI charges, the company can decide not to issue the driver a new policy.
