Chicago, IL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/11/2014 -- Nine died and dozens were wounded over the Fourth of July weekend in Chicago, according to news reports. Many suffer injuries just by being in the wrong place at the wrong time, such as the gentleman hit by a falling bullet or the lady grazed by a bullet while on her porch. In situations such as this, family members often seek retribution, which can lead to criminal charges against the family member. When this is the case, one needs legal representation and the Law Office of Purav Bhatt may be of help.
"People often do things in the heat of the moment, never stopping to consider the consequences of their actions. They want justice for their loved one and set out to get it. When one does this and finds they are facing criminal charges, an attorney needs to be sought immediately. Bhatt Law understands how emotions can lead to a person doing something completely out of character for them and works to provide those in this situation with legal representation," Purav Bhatt declares.
Unlawful use of weapons (UUW) charges aren't uncommon in Chicago either. A misdemeanor unlawful use of weapons charge comes with a penalty of up to one year in jail, along with fines. Felony unlawful use of weapons charges typically result in the defendant spending time in the department of corrections.
As Bhatt explains, the Law Office of Purav Bhatt works to reduce any court costs and fines associated with the charge, while also working to prevent a jail sentence. The office works with clients at every stage of the process, from preliminary hearings to post-conviction court appearances.
Others find they need legal representation after a traffic arrest, such as when one is arrested for DUI or driving on a suspended license. Often, courts consider traffic offenses minor, yet there are certain situations, such as when one leaves the scene after being involved in an accident, which can lead to the loss of one's driving privileges or an increase in insurance premiums. It's best to seek legal representation when one is convicted of a traffic offense with serious consequences.
"Turn to the Law Office of Purav Bhatt for any criminal offense. The attorneys at the law firm understand the methods used by the prosecution as I previously worked as a Cook County State Attorney. I understand how to identify any problems in the prosecution's case and capitalize on those weaknesses to build a strong defense when seeking a reduction in the charges, if a complete dismissal isn't warranted," Bhatt proclaims.
