在麻省, 小到处理交通罚单、应对租房纠纷（被房东驱逐），大到醉酒驾驶，或者是在酒精影响下驾驶 Drunk driving―or operating under the influence (DUI/OUI) 你的处罚很大程度是取决于你触犯了多少项罪名。你可能会受到来自RMV的行政处罚，同时也受到来自法庭的刑事处罚。还有因为男女朋友吵架，发生了肢体冲突，继而升级到了Battery and Assault 甚至是Restraining Order。很多时候因为我们人生地不熟、没经历过类似事件不知道应该向谁求助，或者因为担心花销太多不找律师咨询解决，最后因为没有找到正确途径反而让自己蒙受更多损失。
