Some of my clients have learned legal lessons the hard way.  They have been denied benefits they were rightfully entitled to, or received significantly smaller awards because of avoidable mistakes.  Here are some things they did wrong: 1.  Some waited for years before getting legal advice.  They said they did not know if they had…

Do I have a case?  Should I call an attorney?  Is there a checklist to know if I should call?  Yesterday I met Lola who wanted to know if there was a simple checklist so she  could tell if she had a legitimate case.    She had heard that there is a lot of fraud going on, and…

This week the Tennessee legislature passed by a comfortable margin another law.  This new law is another step taken by government which lops off by big chunks the right to the pursuit of happiness.  Our forefathers called this right “inalienable” meaning it could not be sold or taken away. The new law is a windfall…

We all know that Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence.  It was unanimously adopted by the United States Congress in 1776.  It declared that all men are entitled to certain inalienable rights, and among these are the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Skip ahead two hundred thirty five years to…

When it comes time to get a negligence case settled, nothing is more important than good medical records.  And writing good medical records falls solely within the province of the client’s treating doctors. I have been disappointed with the failure of some of the treating physicians in my community to properly document their files.  I…

I have been amazed at how many of my clients are late bloomers.  They were all in accidents and it took them a long time to come see a lawyer.  One of them came in for the first time 44 months after their accident, and had hardly seen a doctor.  Another was in a roll…

I got a call this week from a woman who had been in a car accident two years ago.  She just started seeing a doctor for her injuries, and wanted to know if it was too late to do anything.  This was a good question.  I see people who for some reason or another  wait…

This important question is at the top of every client’s list.  News  of multi-million dollar verdicts offer little or no explanation of how the jury was able to come up with huge amounts.  People watching or reading get the impression that juries are out of control, and that plaintiffs are getting rich on flimsy cases….

Some attorneys concentrate on the Debtors’ alleged  default to win a case.  There is a  whole new way to win.   Last year I wrote an article here about a Foreclosure defense based on MERS.  Today I am widening the scope a little to focus on another problem (there are many) which could help those…

I got a call this week from a mother who was so grief stricken about the death of her only son that she could not bear to discuss it for more than a year.  Turns out her son died of a drug overdose in July 2009 and was 32 years old, single and without kids….
