On February 13, 2014, a federal court judge in Norfolk decided that Virginia’s ban on gay marriages was unconstitutional.  What is more intriguing about this ruling is that Virginia would be the first state in the Southeast to overturn a gay marriage ban.  What is mind-blowing about this ruling is that it could open the door to determine the unconstitutionality of gay marriage bans across the nation.  Currently seventeen states and the District of Columbia allow same-sex marriages.  The judge’s ruling has been supported and ostracized by many.  Overall, the most significant piece to this puzzle is the fact that one single ruling from our backyard – Norfolk Federal Court – could be the catalyst to change the way our nation views marriages.  What are your thoughts?

Each day we hear about DUI stops and checkpoints.  What is worse is
when we hear of DUI related deaths.  Today, I shuddered when I heard about the death surrounding an automobile accident in Newport News – and all in the wee hours of New Year’s Day.  ​ Two men were driving along J. Clyde Morris Boulevard when their car crashed into a utility pole before being wrapped around yet another pole.  The jaws of life were used to remove the men leaving one dead and the other hospitalized. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends affected by this tragedy.  It is our hope that these accidents ​will spread awareness of the dangers of drinking and driving, ultimately ​ceasing the occurrences.  If you have been involved in a DUI related accident, the attorneys of The Cooper Law Firm are here to assist.  Call and schedule an appointment at (757) 965-5608.  Let our years of personal injury and wrongful death experience work for you.
