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!
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

Do you have kidnapping charges against you in Rhode Island? These occurrences are often found in the confusion of custody battles between parents. The complexity surrounding these very sensitive circumstances can sometimes lead to criminal charges. At The Law Office of Chad F Bank, we believe that everyone should be aware of his or her rights even when accused of alleged criminal activity. We want our clients to be educated and well informed of their legal options, rights and responsibilities. Because of the heightened emotion that may occur in a kidnapping case we recommend the accused to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately. There are several instances in which the crime may stem from the results of a custody battle or another legal issue. It is pertinent to know the classifications of kidnapping charges as it pertains to the state of Rhode Island. Rhode Island Classifications of Kidnapping Assault First Degree Second Degree What Determines the Penalties for Kidnapping Charges? In the state of Rhode Island each category of kidnapping carries its own penalties. The penalties assigned to each category grows as the severity of the crime increases. First Degree Kidnapping, also defined as Assault Kidnapping, is the most severe assignment for kidnapping charges.

We should never take domestic violence lightly. However, there are countless cases every year that involve false domestic violence allegations. Some people go as far as using false domestic violence allegations to increase their odds of winning a divorce battle. Today we are going to take a look at the alarming trend of domestic violence allegations. The problem with false domestic violence allegations is there is never a penalty. If you made false claims to a court or police officer in any other type of case, you would receive charges. However, courts treat domestic violence differently. The courts and police officers do not want to give anyone a reason not to speak up about domestic abuse. Any attempt to curtail false allegations could have adverse effects on people that are victims of abuse. Getting a Restraining Order The first problem with our system is how easy it is to get a restraining order. Many states have language in their laws that include being afraid, apprehensive or experiencing emotional distress. Also, the burden of proof for these types of claims is very low. Standard criminal cases require that the prosecution proves your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. In restraining order cases, prosecutors only have to show that it is more likely than not that the accuser is scared of physical violence. That leads to an average of 1.5 million trivial restraining orders every year in the U.S. There are several classic examples of the flaws in such a system. In 2005 [...]
