Quick to understand, clear and concise answers to questions I recently found myself in a circumstance new to me, that of needing legal counsel following a traffic accident. I found Audriana’s firm via on-line legal referrals and contacted her after reading various positive reviews. Early in our first conversation, Audriana quickly grasped my particular situation and concerns, and she responded with recommendations for a course of action to pursue. She answered all of the questions I posed clearly, completely and in detail, making sure that I had a full understanding of what my options were and what the best strategy would be moving forward. She did all of this in a friendly yet concise and competent manner, which greatly helped and allowed me to put my position into perspective. In person in court, she projected a confident, professional yet personable manner in dealing with court officers and with me as a client. She kept me fully aware of how our strategy would interface with real-time circumstance in court, and what we would do in response, as she actively represented me. I am glad I followed her skillful counsel, and to have benefitted from her efforts in court, as my as my case was dismissed. Based on this experience, Audriana will be my first contact regarding some unrelated legal matters I hope to address later this year. -WS

Legal Answers
5 Questions Answered
Q. Say you get pulled over and your driving someone else’s vehicle do the police have the right to search said vehicle?
A: It does not matter if the car you are driving does not belong to you -- if you are driving the car and there is a valid basis for the officer to search the car, the officer is permitted to search the car even if you do not own the car. Reasons that the officer may be legally permitted to search the vehicle include: the smell of fresh, burning, or burnt cannabis or the officer observes something illegal inside the vehicle in plain view -- such as a gun or baggie of drugs. This is a very fact specific situation, so you need to have an attorney experienced in search & seizure law represent you and review the facts of your particular situation and case.
Q. Can a police detective question his own son if his son has info regarding a case he is investigating?
A: There would possibly exist a conflict of interest, so a police officer or other law enforcement officer should not be the one to question his or her own child regarding an investigation. Rather, that officer should have a different officer do the questioning. That protects the integrity of the investigation. If the officer does question his or her own child, there is potentially a basis by the charged defendant to challenge the investigation process.
Q. I would like to know if you could tell me how I find out if I have a felony
A: The simplest thing for you to do is to hire a private agency to conduct a criminal background check for you -- that really takes all the work out of your hands; however, that can be pricey. Another option would be to look online or go in person to the Circuit Clerk's Office of the counties where you currently reside or have resided in the past and look up your name in their online system. You could also look at the Circuit Clerk's Office online case system in the counties where you have been arrested.
