On Providing Referrals

I had a friend ask me recently who he should get to write a will for him. I gave him the names of a couple of colleagues that I know write wills, but I encouraged him to call and talk to these lawyers about his situation and how they charge fees before he hired one, actually, before he even...

Boating Safety Refresher

It seems that here in our neck of the woods the summer heat is finally starting to arrive. Some will say “better late the never.” Some of you have enjoyed the cooler summer we've had thus far, more so than the past few scorchers. Even though the kids are getting ready to go back to school, ma...

Posted by Bradley Thayer | Aug 29, 2019 | 0 Comments

The main hard-and-fast belief I strive to live by is “do not actively hurt any other human being.” As simple as that might sound, if you read the news, it seems there are not as many people living by this mantra as there should be. So let's talk about hit and run drivers.  I have thought...

Proving a Head Injury

Posted by Benjamin P. Melnick | Aug 22, 2019 | 0 Comments

July 2019 has been a rough month in the news when it comes to highlighting the true danger that motor vehicles pose.  This blog post may not a revelation on any level, but it is merely intended to serve as a reminder that as routine or habitual as driving has become in our everyday lives an...

How long is this going to take?

Posted by Scott Edwards | Aug 14, 2019 | 0 Comments

One of the questions asked by virtually every person that comes into my office to talk about injuries from a motor vehicle collision is “how long is this going to take?” Other variations on the question include “how long will it take to settle my personal injury claim?” or “it seems like th...

Old People, They Just Grow Lonesome

Posted by William K. Thayer | Aug 06, 2019 | 0 Comments

There is the beginning, the middle, and the end. One way to look at life, anyway. At age 63, I am not exactly in the middle, but not yet at the end (I am certainly not at the beginning). As a son, a father, and a grandfather though, I do have a courtside seat now suddenly for being able to closel...

On Gymnasium Wall Padding
