Reduce the Stress of an Auto Accident.

It is much easier said than done, but if you can focus and think clearly in the aftermath of a collision on the roadways of Spokane you will be better prepared for the aftermath.  When all is said and done, making sure that everyone on the scene is okay is your utmost priority.  Try to concentrate on that initially.

Then, here are some tips –

1.  DO NOT drive away from the scene.
2.  Set up flares, or at least keep your flashers on.
3.  Call the police as quickly as possible.
4.  Make an accurate record of the scene by taking pictures with your phone.
5.  Exchange all insurance information.

Being clear-headed in the immediate moments after an auto accident will go a long way toward not only your physical recovery, but your financial one as well.  If you and/or a loved one have been involved in a car accident in the Spokane area why not call Mason Law?  Craig and his team might have the answers you are seeking.  That number is (509) 443-3681.

Domestic Violence Protection Orders

Domestic Violence Protection (DVP) orders under RCW 26.50 serve a vital function in protecting a spouse, domestic partner, or former romantic partner from misbehavior of the other party, from violence and threats of violence to stalking. (Unfortunately, they are sometimes mis-used for strategic advantage, as well, in divorces or custody battles.)
These DVP orders usually first issue from the court “ex parte,” which means without notice to the other person until he or she is served with the restraint.  Normally a fully hearing will be set within 14 days from the ex parte order being granted by the court, so that the restrained person can present his or her side of the story.

The penalties are severe for violating these orders, from a gross misdemeanor to a class C felony.  Even if you are completely innocent of the alleged domestic violence, you must obey the order unless and until it is changed in the full hearing.  To prepare for that hearing, as the person bringing the petition, or as the person defending against a petition, you need good legal help to prepare your facts for the court. 

Craig Mason of Mason Law, located in Spokane, Washington, can help you fully prepare for court, so that your story is heard. Call Mason Law at (509) 443-3681 today.
