*In Kentucky, if you are charged with or convicted of a crime, that information stays on your criminal record. Expungement is the legal process of completely removing an arrest, charge, or conviction from your record. If you get an expungement, all records relating to the charge or conviction are deleted. It means that you can answer “NO” when asked on an application if you have been convicted of a crime.
Being charged with a DUI can have serious consequences. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a dangerous criminal act, and when someone has been charged with this crime, the penalties and punishment can be severe. Do not try to defend yourself and do not plead guilty simply to be done with the case. Both scenarios could result in an outcome you were not expecting, such as loss of a license or prison time. At Chewning & Chewning, we have DUI attorneys who know the laws, the regulations, the requirements of the arrest procedure, and how the court system operates. If you've received a DUI, calling us ought to be your first move.
Nothing makes tempers flare faster than a legal issue involving family. If you are considering divorce, have filed for divorce, or are entangled in a legal battle concerning your divorce, it may be hard to keep your emotions from clouding your judgment. You need a family law attorney with expertise in divorce to help you protect your rights and assets while moving your case toward resolution. At Chewning & Chewning, we listen to your fears and frustrations as well as your legal issues and then work to get the best-possible outcome in your divorce.
A divorce is difficult for everyone in the family, but children are particularly vulnerable during marital dissolution. Their parents are no longer a couple, their home may be changing, they may need to go to a new school — many things in their lives will change without their input or acceptance. Disagreements or disruptions in the child custody situation are particularly hard on children. Chewning & Chewning is very experienced with dealing with child custody issues. We will work hard to protect your parental rights while always keeping your child’s best interests in mind.
If you've been in an auto accident, have fallen on a slippery floor, have been bitten by a dog, or have suffered any injury due to another's negligence, you are legally entitled to monetary compensation for your suffering. This remuneration will help you cover medical bills, auto repairs, lost wages, and other expenses you have incurred due to being injured. Insurance companies are all too glad to settle claims quickly — often giving victims much less than that to which they are entitled. Chewning & Chewning can help you navigate the complexities of a car wreck or other personal injury claim and get you ALL the money you deserve. We also represent clients in wrongful death suits.
