DWI Basics in Missouri
What exactly does it mean to be “operating” a vehicle? What is and is not considered a “motorized” vehicle? What does the court consider a “drugged state?” The punishments for a DWI/DUI conviction are contingent upon many variables, including prior criminal convictions, where you were arrested, and unfortunately, more often than not, how good your attorney is at protecting your rights.
During this stressful time in your life, the last thing you should have to worry about is choosing an attorney. Our proven record of success and customer service makes The Piatchek Law Firm the go-to law firm for DWI/DUI criminal defense in Missouri.

Does a Child Really Need a Business Permit to Mow Grass?
In Birmingham, Alabama local officials have reportedly warned teens that they need to procure a business license from the city, which costs $110, if they wish to cut their neighbors grass for money. If they do not have the license, they are in violation of the city law.
Mowing grass in the summer is often seen as one of the go-to jobs a motivated teenager can look for when trying to make extra spending cash over summer break. What many consider an American tradition, has become an issue of debate in at least one Alabama neighborhood. Elton Campbell’s granddaughter cuts lawns for $20 a piece, until she received a complaint.
“One of the men that cuts several yards made a remark to one of our neighbors, that if he saw her cutting grass again that he was going to call Gardendale [their neighborhood] because she didn’t have a business license,” Campbell told ABC 33-40.
The mayor says it’s “unfortunate” that such a small issue could warrant a complaint, and won’t be sending anyone after the children cutting grass for pocket change, but would be interested in introducing a new temporary business license for summer months that targets teenage entrepreneurs.
