The 4th of July is a time for taking pride in and celebrating our freedoms and liberties. Freedoms and liberties, however, do not exist without corresponding laws and restrictions. Such is the make-up of a civilized society. While many laws are the same state-wide (drunk driving and drinking age restrictions, for example), others are more county, city, or village specific (fireworks and noise restrictions). Know the laws in your area and follow them. Know your neighborhood as well and be considerate of your neighbors, particularly during your evening and night-time celebrations. At Pruitt Law Offices S.C., we hope you all have a safe and happy 4th of July. However, if you end up being the victim of someone else’s dumb decision – or your own – call us for help at 262-633-8301. Or contact us through our website at, or visit us at 731 Main Street in Racine. We are your partners for professional service.
