Chad had the whole case dismissed

Chad is a amazing lawyer and magician because he works magic in courtrooms. I hired Chad when my husband was charged with a capital offense. My hopes when hiring Chad were to make sure my husband didn't do too many years in jail. I still cant believe that Chad came out of court to tell me that my husband is coming home today. Chad had the whole case dismissed by finding a tiny microscopic mistake made by the police. This is why we hire lawyers! It felt like something out of the movies, and i fell if went to any other lawyer I would not be looking at my husband right now. Chad is also one of the only Rhode Island lawyers with a heart. Outside court he held, played, and laughed with my son. Any other lawyer would of charged an arm and leg but he worked with my budget. Stop your search Chad is the best!

Thank You and a Job Well Done

I would be remiss if I did not take the time to express a sincere thank you to the Law Office of Chad Bank. A special note to Attorney Rory Munns for the professional and courteous manner he handled his client, my son Bryan Sheridan. Attorney Munns took no time in assessing the situation avoiding the potential "surprises" that can arise. Attorney Munns displayed a kind and courteous manner in explaining his strategy and making sure we understood the four corner approach. My son and I are gratefully appreciative for the work and outcome of that dreadful day in court. Attorney Munns is a credit to himself, the Chad Bank Law Firm and the Bar Association. Thank you. Sincerely, Bob Sheridan

Public Defender vs Private Attorney: The Statistics in Criminal Defense

We have all seen a tv show in which a cop reads someone their Miranda Rights. The cop says that the accused has the right to an attorney and if they can not afford one, the state will pay for one for them. However, did you know that the probability of you serving jail time goes up with a public defender vs private attorney? I'm sure you want to mount the strongest defense possible. To do so, you're going to need a private attorney. First, let's take a look at the pros and cons of a public defender vs private attorney. Pros and Cons of a Public Defender First, we will start with the most obvious pro; a public defender is free. The idea behind a public defender is to provide legal counsel to those who can not afford it. If you are poor, the court will appoint a lawyer to your case. However, if you do have enough money, the state expects you to pay for your attorney. Secondly, public defenders work with the same judges and prosecutors every day. The relationships public defenders have with judges and prosecutors can come in handy when it comes time for a plea deal. However, if you are innocent and have no interest in pleading it could be a con. The biggest problem with a public defender is their case load. Now, this isn't their fault. Our justice system doesn't always work as intended. The number of public defenders is much smaller than it [...]

Decriminalizing Drugs: A Divisive Issue

Decriminalizing drugs is a topic of a lot of discussions, with the United Nations backing it. But, what does that mean for our country? Ours is different from the others that have seen much better progress in that area than we have. Will it work here? While there are many things to consider, here are just a few: Decriminalizing Drugs: Drugged Driving Statistics On the rise, drugged driving was studied in 2015. Of motorists tested forty-three percent tested positive, opposed to the thirty-seven who were drunk. The tests showed that more than any other drug, marijuana was used. And while cannabis accounts for thirty-five percent of the positive drug tests, amphetamines are only nine percent. The rest were classified as “other,” which meant that they were substances that cause impairment but have no classification. The research is still new, and there is always data coming in. The problem isn’t reporting, but discerning which influence leads to the effects since there is usually a mixture of two. There isn't a lot that tells us what the solutions may be. We are still finding it hard to find answers for drunk driving, which has had more research and has been legal longer. And unfortunately, it would be a hard task to calculate statistics of how alcohol has affected drivers before and after legalization. Even with that information, it wouldn’t seem a conclusive analogy. And when data is collected, it is the information that is reported by states. This means that there is [...]
