Dealing with Holiday Drama in a Productive Waynicolelaw
For many, the holiday period is a wonderful time of year. Snowy days filled with family. All manner of foodstuffs to consume. (Pro tip: Let the guilt from extreme sugar intake wait until the New Year!)
For others, though, the holidays can add an extra layer of stress to an otherwise already-hectic life. Whenever families and friends get together, any number of disasters can occur—and I’m not just talking about burning the gravy. As a Colorado criminal defense attorney, I see lots of legal issues arise from the additional stress brought on by the holidays. From domestic violence cases and spouses snapping to the inebriated coworker getting a post-holiday party DUI, criminal consequences are all too common.
Prevention is the key to avoiding legal disaster (just like a careful eye and frequent stirring could have saved that gravy), and self-care is important this time of year, too. In an effort to prevent the 3 a.m. call to the only lawyer you actually know, let’s see if my friendly legal advice can help do the trick.
And hey, the legal advice is free because Happy Holidays!
