Victims of slip and fall incidents may need chiropractic care. Unfortunately, there is no simple answer. Every personal injury claim is different and the timeline for either settling claims or bringing them to tr...

Among the highlights of the tax bill include standard deduction increases set to sunset in several years as well as deep cuts in the corp...

Tips from an Attorney: How to Pick the Right Lawyer to Represent You in Court

Attorney selection is the most important strategic decision that you will make over the course of your courtroom experience. The attorney you select not only helps guide the entire procession of the lawsuit moving forward, but is also your point of contact for the judge, the other attorneys, and the parties that you are suing (or, if you are unlucky, who are suing you).

In the employment context, employment lawyers know that immigrant workers (both temporary and permanent) enjoy many of the same protections tha...

When a Termination is Illegal – A Brief History of Employee Legal Protections

Most people dread getting fired from their job. Termination carries so many negative consequences from a lack of immediate income to the possibility of long-term placement issues.
