– Nov. 25, 2015-Presidential Executive Order on Immigration,
Washington D.C. – On November 20 and 21, 2014, President Obama announced his “immigration accountability executive action,” which includes a series of measures that are first steps towards common-sense reforms to an outdated immigration system. The series of executive actions presented by the administration range from new temporary immigration protections for many unauthorized parents of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to highly technical regulatory proposals to fix outdated visa provisions.

Personal Injury/Wrongful Death
The law allows recovery of money damages for injuries inflicted through the negligent or wrongful conduct of another. The most common, everyday example is the injury sustained in a vehicular accident where you, the plaintiff, are hurt by the irresponsible conduct of the other driver, the defendant. In such a case, the law permits you to claim damages for various items (lost wages, mental anguish, medical expenses, etc.) from the defendant or his insurance company. Of course, injuries may result from other causes such as a defective product, the condition of premises, professional malpractice, or through the intentional actions of someone in assaulting you.
Many immigrants or U.S. citizens, who wish to legalize a friend or relative, can get lost in the immigration complex of laws. An immigration lawyer can advise you on whether you can obtain a visa, U.S. residency, or citizenship. If you have an immigration matter you would like to discuss with us, please call us immediately. We will assist your case in accordance with The Presidential Executive Order for Immigration Reform.
Employment and Labor
This area of the law is broad and intricate. Most laymen are familiar with concepts of employment law through suits involving sexual harassment or those for race, sex, age, disability, national origin or religious discrimination. Federal and state laws prohibit sexual harassment and the forms of discrimination specified above. For example, if you have been sexually harassed to the extent that it adversely impacts your employment opportunities or creates a hostile environment, you may have a claim enforceable in a court of law that will force your employer to pay for the damage done to you. The same is true if you have been fired, demoted, not hired, or have suffered other adverse consequences because of your race, age, disability, national origin, sex or religion.
With increasing frequency, insurance companies deny payment of valid claims for what appear to be illegitimate reasons. This is particularly true in the case of health insurance claims, where a denial often leads to further injury to the insured. It means you have not been given what was promised to you, and the refusal of the company to pay results in a deprivation of needed medical care and leads at times to catastrophic losses. In some cases, the law will provide a remedy for the added injury caused by an insurance company’s failure to deal fairly with you, the insured. Insurance litigation is not confined to this simple example. You may be a worker on workers’ compensation whose weekly benefits are denied. Or you may be an individual seeking recovery under your homeowner’s policy for the destruction of your home. Both situations may cause serious financial losses.
Like personal injury and employment law, the field of civil rights law is broad. In fact, it often overlaps other areas of the law. On the one hand, it might describe the case of a fifth grade school girl who seeks damages resulting from sexual molestation by her band director because the school district, despite knowing of previous similar behavior of the director, deliberately fails to stop it. On the other hand, civil rights litigation may encompass a suit against a city for improperly damaging your home or denying you the right to speak on matters of public importance. The term “civil rights” might also encompass voting and political rights — the denial of the right to vote, the misapportionment of a political district in a way that deprives you of proper political representation, or the denial of your right to participate in political affairs. It may also encompass discriminatory housing policies. As with personal injury and employment law, the various matters that might give rise to civil rights liability are vast.
When you are arrested, our office can bail you out of jail and represent you through the entire legal process. Unlike civil cases, we charge a flat retainer fee which varies on the type of criminal case and whether you wish to plea bargain or have a jury trial. Never speak to a law enforcement officer without having a lawyer present. please call us immediately.
