Gotta love our court system!

Certainly everyone has their own viewpoint regarding the American court system. But one thing we can all agree upon is that our system can make it easy for people to bring amusing cases. Toward that end, we wanted to share with you a case that was filed in federal court in Southern California. (Where else but Tinseltown would one expect this kind of lawsuit?)

Divorcing a narcissist brings up many challenges

A divorce is difficult enough in the simplest cases; however, when one person in the marriage is a narcissist, things can be even more challenging. When you are splitting up from a person who only thinks of themselves, you will often feel like you are fighting a losing battle. They try to flip everything so that it is about them, and so they can do things that will benefit them. They simply can't stand having the focus on someone else.

Facebook and the Law

In the last year, Facebook has climbed over 1 billion active users. Most likely you or someone you know has a Facebook account and uses it religiously. What you likely didn't know, is that if you become involved in litigation, that Facebook account is considered evidence to the opposing party. In Virginia, an attorney and his client were recently sanctioned for over $700,000 for allegedly destroying the client's Facebook account to get rid of unwanted posts and pictures. Lester v. Allied Concrete Company and William Donald Sprouse. Unfortunately for the entire Facebook community, this reverence for Facebook evidence is not uncommon. 

Why You Need a Will Now!

According to a Harris Interactive survey, 58% of adults lack one of the most necessary documents every person should have, a will. (And frankly, from our experience, that percentage is likely even higher.) A last will and testament is a set of papers which lay out how your estate will be distributed- and perhaps who will care for your kids - upon your death. This means, that upon death 58% of the American population may not have their amassed fortune (no matter how big or small) delegated how they would want. While in some cases it may work out in accordance with the deceased's wishes, sometimes the lack of this basic document may lead to years of litigation and thousands of dollars wasted. 

Plan for income changes when you go through a divorce

A divorce is going to impact every aspect of your life. One of these is your finances. You have to be prepared to live on only your own income. This can be a big change when you are accustomed to having a two-income home. We know that trying to figure out the finances can be complicated, especially before you know what debts you are responsible for and which assets are now yours.

Studies suggest many hospital errors are preventable and under-reported

Being hospitalized because of an injury or illness is a difficult experience, but many people take solace in the fact that they are in expert hands and that unnecessary complications are unlikely. Disturbingly, though, in the last few years, several studies have delved into reported medical malpractice cases to suggest that medical errors are often preventable and under-reported. Given these findings, it benefits people in King County, Washington, to understand the risk and their rights if they are ever affected by malpractice.
