Areas of Practice
At Taub & Taub, P.C., our attorneys have more than 40 years of combined legal experience helping people just like you. Attorney Richard F. Taub began his legal career as a state prosecutor where he handled DUI serious injury and vehicular injury cases, juvenile cases, serious felony crimes and drug offenses. This experience has proved invaluable as a defense attorney since he has insight into how the prosecution operates and he knows exactly where to search for any weaknesses in their case, all of which he uses to his clients' advantage at all times.
Our criminal defense areas of practice include domestic violence cases; domestic violence refers to intimate partner violence and family violence that occurs between married couples, family members, people who live together and people who have a child together. Domestic violence is more than just physical violence such as hitting, punching, or choking, it can also involve child abuse, spousal rape, emotional abuse, financial abuse, violence towards family pets, and threats of physical violence.
While domestic violence is a serious issue, unfortunately people frequently make false allegations of abuse against an innocent individual and they use these claims as a way to manipulate and control a person. The problem is that if a judge and prosecutor believe these false allegations, the ramifications can be disastrous for the person being accused. Such allegations can lead to a restraining order which can force someone to stay away from the alleged victim, and it can even force them to move out of their home and stay away from their own children. If you have been accused of domestic violence, we strongly urge you to contact our firm right away to seek help. You have rights and it's essential that we protect your rights so you aren't sent to jail or told where you can and cannot go.
Handling DUI & Drug Crimes
Our firm has extensive experience representing clients in alcohol and drug-related DUI cases. Contrary to popular belief, DUI cases can be fought and effectively won in court. All too often people make the mistake of accepting their charges and taking their punishment, and in effect they have to cough up hundreds of dollars in fines, they could have to go to jail for up to one year, attend DUI school and lose their driver's license for at least six months. None of these are favorable as a DUI conviction can seriously affect your job, your livelihood, and more importantly your family. There are a number of ways to challenge the legality of the traffic stop, the field sobriety tests, as well as any blood alcohol evidence collected against you; therefore, we urge you to contact us immediately following the arrest to find out how we can help.
If you have been arrested for a drug crime involving marijuana, cocaine, heroin, LSD, mushrooms, GHB, ecstasy, methamphetamines, or even prescription medications or drug paraphernalia, we can help.
