You paid for insurance – use it!
Let’s delve into an uncomfortable topic for many adults these days – performance anxiety. Sit tight, because no I am not talking about in the bedroom (unless you had an accident that involved coverage). Today I want to speak specifically regarding the anxiety a growing number of insured persons have in filing a claim with […]
Parenting Plans – a different approach
Family law can be one of the most divisive and heartbreaking areas of the law in my opinion. Broken families attempting to navigate the already complicated process of parenting now have to attempt to do that at two different households. The circumstances surrounding each breakdown of a relationship vary, and, as such, some are significantly […]

Unfair Settlement Practices and Insurance Companies – How to Beat a Giant
I have a deep-rooted belief that we all have our favorite insurance companies at least based in part based on everyday commercials. Don’t get me started on Flo. If I were to miss work due to an accident, an annoying squawking goose would be screeching AFLAC in my head repeatedly. But the number one comfort […]

The American consumer is often eager to spend their newfound windfall on long awaited projects and improvements. Sadly, even after poring over multiple YouTube tutorials and reality DIY […]
Statute of Limitations and How it Relates to You
All too often, we come across people in our line of work that were injured through no fault of their own but failed to take action against the wrongdoers in a timely fashion.
