Lisa Beth Older, a New York City Divorce Lawyer, Offers Important Information on Divorce in New York City or Upstate New York

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 7, 2006

Life started out so great. It felt as though you were locked inside a great big bubble of happiness. You got married to the love of your life and proceeded to have three children. You are young. You were young. Your husband or wife has been taking care of all the bills. Three or four years go by and things are slowing changing. Your husband or wife is not home as much to help you with your household chores or with caravaning the children to their in sundry appointments and birthday parties. You feel isolated and alone. Suddenly you start to see things unraveling. You become unhappy, you start to feel unworthy. You worry because you have no idea what is happening to your life, a life which was once the envy of your single friends.

You wonder… is this the way things are supposed to turn out? Then the arguing begins, sometimes involving verbal abuse or even physical abuse. Sometimes, you just feel isolated and neglected. You have no one to talk to about your changing life. You have asked, but your spouse refuses to see a marital counselor or counsel from your church or synagogue. You can not turn to family, as they are still reminding you of how wonderful your spouse has been, what a wonderful provider he or she is. And then the day comes when your husband or wife tells you that they no longer love you or that they want a divorce or separation.

In New York State, the NYS divorce attorney hears a version of the above fact scenario day in and day out. The above stated fact scenario is more common than you might think. Yet each individual has their own set of circumstances, their own priorities, their own way of looking at things, and things are just not that simple.

You may turn to friends and family and everyone has a different view point on what to do. Stay? Go?

You turn to a therapist to sort out your feelings and invariably you come to terms with the fact that things are going to have to change. Change is a scary thing to confront. The ugly word starts being bantered about. Divorce. Now what.

The first thing you should do is start finding out how to protect the best interests of yourself and your children. If you or your children are being ill treated or abused there are places you can go and things that you can do immediately to stop the abuse.

Call 911. Call child protective services, there is a department in each and every county in New York State. Go to Family Court and get an Order of Protection. Call your family lawyer. Or seek immediate custody of the subject children. At all costs, protect the children from harms way.

And then start worrying about what you must do to begin preparing for divorce. Call a New York City divorce lawyer. If you are in nyc and seek a top nyc divorce lawyer then search the internet and call a few attorneys and find one you are comfortable with. If you are in a smaller town or county you can call your local Bar Association for a referral. But by all means get help. Do not stay in a situation of domestic violence. The NY Family Court has a wonderful history of providing a respite for those in fear of their lives.

And if you feel you just can not go it alone, do not be afraid to seek out professional help from a New York State lawyer. The more experienced ones will know just what to do to protect your legal rights in an efficient way and make you feel comfortable at the same time. Your secrets are safe with a ny divorce lawyer. If the above sounds familiar do not hesitate to act now. Hire a nyc divorce lawyer now.

Divorce Lawyer Says Families Do Not Belong In The Court Of Law

Fresno, California (PRWEB) December 5, 2007

Fresno divorce lawyer, Erin Rhames-Childs says that the court of law is no place for families. The cold courtroom hallways are best for those with contract disputes and criminal charges. Divorce courts are overworked and understaffed forcing judges into making quick decisions that are not always right. Collaborative divorce is a cheaper, quicker option for couples to maintain control over their destiny and protect their families from hasty decisions.

“Families don’t belong in the court of law,” says Erin Rhames-Childs, a Fresno County Collaborative Lawyer. With divorce at the highest rates in years, local divorce courts are inundated with too many litigants, and too little time to handle them.

For many, the cold hallways of a courthouse are traumatizing and some court orders for custody, visitation or property division are devastating for years after.

Through traditional divorce litigation, disputes over child custody and child visitation, parties are forced to hand over their most precious possessions – their children – to a stranger in a black robe will order when and how they will be raised, when and how each party will see them and how much money they will have to do all of this. “I would never want that for myself and I don’t want it for my clients,” says Erin Rhames-Childs, a family law attorney who practices Collaborative Law in the Central Valley.

“Court is no place for families – it’s a place for contract disputes and criminal proceedings.”

The average divorce costs anywhere from five to tens of thousand of dollars and can take anywhere from six months to years to end. All the while, your family and financial security is in limbo. The California Community Property Laws are good at making division of assets “easy” but don’t necessary give people what the need.

“The judges are hard-working, well-intentioned public servants, but are very limited with what they can do. They have very little time to really listen to your needs and make the best decision that is in the best interests of your children or your finances.”

Attorney Childs practices Collaborative Divorce which is a rapidly growing alternative to the traditional divorce litigation. “Collaborative Law is an innovative approach to restructuring your family during divorce which focuses on the needs of your family and allows you both to be in charge of the decisions affecting the rest of your lives. All of this is done while keeping your personal and financial dignity intact.”

One of the primary goals of Collaborative Law is to preserve couples’ dignity, and respect. Honesty and the free sharing of information are expected and repeatedly encouraged. The idea is to preserve relationships for after the divorce when everything is said and done. In traditional divorce, the attorneys are paid gladiators – there to win at all costs, which usually ends with serious financial and emotional massacre.

The most salient feature of Collaborative Divorce is that both parties must commit in writing to not take their case to court and committing to finding resolutions that best serve their needs through a series of four-way meetings with their collaboratively trained attorneys.

Collaborative practice is often cheaper, faster and results in the parties preserving a functional relationship which will allow them to continue raising their children as divorced parents. “There is a lot less blood shed and the children are spared the trauma of the front row seat to it all.”

Erin Rhames-Childs is a Fresno divorce litigation attorney who provides services for divorce, child custody, child support, spousal support, adoptions, guardianships, grandparent rights, domestic partnerships, and domestic violence restraining orders. Childs & Childs is proud to work throughout the Central Valley including cities like Fresno, Madera, Clovis, Kingsburg, Reedley, Selma, Tulare, Hanford, Visalia, Merced, Modesto and Coalinga.

New York Medical Malpractice Lawyer Warns School Nurses to Beware of Legal Consequences for Vaccinating Students Without Parental Consent


New York, NY (PRWEB) November 23, 2009

The legal terms assault and battery pop up in city tabloids and cops and robbers TV programs all the time. But lately these familiar phrases could just as easily apply to the actions of some New York City elementary schools, and their school nurses, in the wake of the current swine flu pandemic sweeping the country, according to Richard Gurfein, a New York medical malpractice attorney and senior partner in the New York personal injury law firm of Gurfein Douglas, LLP.

Despite claims, Gurfein said, by city health officials stressing the safety of the H1N1 vaccine, and the rapidly growing spread of the disease in city schools (hospitalizations for H1N1 have tripled in New York State in the past three weeks) the law requires parental consent before a school is permitted to give the swine flu vaccine to a student.

According to recent media reports, school nurses mistakenly gave the swine flu vaccine to two students whose parents didnt sign up for it, including a Brooklyn girl with epilepsy who wound up in the hospital after getting the shot.

Any unlawful touching, Gurfein explained, or unauthorized administration of medical care not in an emergency situation is a battery, a legal term for an assault. A school district cannot unilaterally administer vaccinations without parental consent, in writing.

Gurfein explained that on the issue of liability, it wouldnt matter if the child got sick or not from the vaccination.

If there is a battery, Gurfein said (medicine given to a child without an emergency situation, or parental consent), by law the child is entitled to compensatory damages.

The measure of damages is another issue, he added. If there was no ill effect from the vaccination, the damages would be relatively small. If the child became ill, the amount of the damages would go up considerably. Sadly, if the child dies, that wrongful death case would have almost no value because of existing arcane laws in New York State that place little monetary value on the life of a child.

Gurfein said there are exceptions as to when schools are allowed to intervene. For example, in the event of an emergency, schools would be able to render medical care to the student since they are acting in loco parentis while a child is in their care.

But no court, he said, would ever accept the argument that vaccination without consent is an emergency, since the simple alternative is to refuse the child access to the school if parents dont comply with the schools wishes regarding vaccination.

Vaccinating a child without parental consent, Gurfein explained, is a tort that has a one-year statute of limitations. But because the school is part of the City, a parent only has 90 days from the time of the battery to file a Notice of Claim. He said, ninety days does not mean three months. It means ninety days.

Since a battery falls under the category of an intentional tort, Gurfein explained, it also cannot be insured against by the school, or the school nurse. In these situations, the nurse who gave the child the shot, and the school district as her employer assuming the nurse was acting within the course and scope of his or her employment would have to pay any judgment.

Gurfein advises parents to remember that municipalities and their school districts are heavily protected against lawsuits. He instructs parents of children who have been victims of a battery to contact a New York personal injury lawyer who is familiar with both negligence and medical malpractice claims.

Since a school, Gurfein said, is a department, or arm, of a municipality, a lawsuit must be commenced within a year and ninety days from the time of the battery, after having filed a timely Notice of Claim.

Such a lawsuit, he added, typically takes longer to pursue than an average auto case because the City of New York has so many lawsuits it just doesnt have the manpower to process all of them. As with any other personal injury claim, the damages would be determined by a jury. All costs to litigate the case are advanced by the lawyer, not the client. The lawyer only gets those costs reimbursed, and compensated for his, or her, services, if he or she wins the case.

New York Bankruptcy Lawyer Triumphs Over Shoddy Mortgage Lender Practices


New York, NY (PRWEB) March 4, 2010

New York homeowners filing for bankruptcy are breathing a sigh of relief, knowing that the courts are on their side. In a scathing opinion issued recently by US. Bankruptcy Court Judge Martin Glenn, JPMorgan Chase Bank was effectively denied payment of their entire alleged mortgage claim because they refused to prove their ownership of the loan. The case is In re Minbatiwalla, Chapter 13 Case No. 09-15693 (MG) (Bankr.S.D.N.Y. 2009).

Kerman J. Minbatiwalla, a Manhattan homeowner, filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy to repay his debts over time and save his East Side condominium. Though he was current on his mortgage at the time his case was filed, Minbatiwalla is the poster child for a system gone horrible wrong at the hands of shoddy recordkeeping at his mortgage company.

Minbatiwalla had two mortgages with various JPMorgan Chase entities. On filing of his bankruptcy, Chase Home Finance, LLC filed papers with the court on behalf of U.S. Bank as well as an unknown mortgage trust asking for payment of pre-bankruptcy arrears; a second claim was filed by JP Morgan Chase Bank N.A. also demanding payment of arrears.

Minbatiwallas attorney, Manhattan bankruptcy lawyer David B. Shaev, looked on both documents with suspicion. My client wants to pay his mortgage, but now he doesn’t know who is the rightful recipient of the money. There was nothing but a summary attached, with nothing to indicate which party was which, or to whom the monies should be paid, Shaev said. A string of mortgage trusts and servicers only confused the situation, and we needed to be sure that the property parties would be paid.

Though Shaev demanding more information on the transfer of the loans and the relationships of the parties, he was met with no response. Undeterred, he demanded that the claims for payment be denied in full.

Bankruptcy Court Judge Martin Glenn, in a 26-page written opinion, found that Chases failure to attach documentation and respond to the Shaevs information requests is fatal to their claims for payment. Here it is not clear whether the claim was assigned to Chase, or whether Chase was the original party on the mortgage and the note, Glenn wrote. [T]he Debtor requested additional information from the claimant in October and has received no documents.

A copy of the full opinion is available from the Court’s website here.

This is not the first time Shaev has seen mortgage servicer abuses in the bankruptcy courts. He has recently fought and won in cases against a variety of lenders who have refused to treat bankruptcy debtors with the fairness the law demands.

The homeowner won the battle today, Shaev said on hearing of the decision. But with so much mortgage servicer abuse in bankruptcy, the war wages on.

David B. Shaev is a New York bankruptcy lawyer and partner at Shaev & Fleischman, LLP where he concentrates his practice in the field of protecting consumers in bankruptcy. To find out more, please visit Shaev & Fleischman, LLP. Members of the press may also see past coverage of David here.

Sexual Abuse By Clergy Must Be Addressed By U.S. Churches & Religious Organizations, Says Texas Lawyer


Houston, Texas (PRWEB) April 18, 2010

Churches of all denominations must confront the problem of sexual abuse by clergy and other religious leaders and work harder to protect victims of abuse rather than the abusers, Texas attorney Brad T. Wyly says.

Religious leaders occupy positions of substantial power and authority. Children are taught to trust and obey them, said Wyly, founder of the Wyly Law Firm, P.C. which represents victims of personal injury, including clergy abuse. Churches and other religious organizations need to ensure the relationship between clergy and children is not abused. Sexual abuse of a minor is a particularly horrendous crime that can affect youths psychologically and physically for the rest of their lives.

Wyly said documents that show Catholic Church leaders allowed a predatory priest to molest deaf boys for decades despite numerous complaints serves as a glaring reminder of the devastating consequences of a religious organizations failure to address this problem.

According to church records published as part of a March 24, 2010 New York Times article, the Rev. Lawrence C. Murphy admitted to a counselor that he had sexually abused dozens of boys perhaps upwards of 200while ministering at a school for the deaf near Milwaukee, Wisconsin from the 1950s to 1970s. Despite numerous complaints about Murphys conduct to three archbishops and law enforcement officials, he was never defrocked and instead quietly transferred to another community where he continued to work in parishes and schools until his death in 1998.

Children who are victims of sexual abuse can experience difficulty in developing positive relationships and often experience Post Traumatic Stress Disorder involving terrifying flashbacks and nightmares in which they relive the ordeal. Victims of sexual abuse often experience social withdrawal, have problems sleeping, have trust issues and may develop chemical dependency issues.

Lawsuits against those responsible for clergy abuse can bring about change. They can help ensure that the person responsible for the abuse is removed from his position of power so that he can never hurt another child, Wyly said.

Victims of clergy abuse may also be able to pursue compensation from those responsible while preserving their privacy. This can be done either through pursuing settlement negotiations with the church or religious organization responsible for the abuse out-of-court or by guarding the privacy of the victim through a motion to seal court records from the general public. Privacy concerns should not prevent someone from holding those responsible for sexual abuse accountable, Wyly said.

About the Wyly Law Firm, P.C.:

The Wyly Law Firm, P.C., is dedicated to helping people who have suffered a personal injury including sexual abuse. The firm investigates allegations of sexual abuse and pursues civil actions against abusers and any third party that failed to protect innocent victims. The service we provide is confidential and focuses on doing what is best for you the client. The firm, based in Houston, represents clients throughout Texas.

Brad T. Wyly, the founder of the law firm, is a skilled negotiator and lawyer. He was named as a Rising Star in Law & Politics magazine in 2005 and 2006. Mr. Wyly may be contacted at 713.574.7034 for a private and confidential consultation.

Michigan Birth Injury Lawyer Applauds Hospitals That Are Revising Delivery Room Practices

Bloomfield Hills, MI (Vocus/PRWEB) April 12, 2011

Michigan medical malpractice lawyer Thomas L. Stroble said today that he was encouraged to see a group of 16 Midwest hospitals revising their practices in order to better protect the safety of infants during childbirth.

According to a recent Wall Street Journal report, the hospitals belonging to Ascension Health, Fairview Health Services and the University of Minnesota Public Health systems have seen a major reduction in birth injuries and deaths since they began using a series of safety protocols, or care bundles, in the summer of 2008.

I believe attorneys representing families who have experienced the tragedy of a birth injury have forced hospitals to take a hard look at whats wrong with their practices, and to their credit, these hospitals have acted to fix those problems, said Stroble, a Bloomfield Hills personal injury attorney and founder of the Oakland County-based Stroble Law Firm, P.C.

These new practices, in particular, improve communication and teamwork so that doctors and nurses can react quickly when difficulties arise, Stroble said. Based on our law firms experience, its that failure to react to problems such as shoulder dystocia that often leads to serious birth injuries that can impact the child and parents for the rest of their lives.

The care bundles were developed as part of an obstetrics safety program by North Carolina-based Premier Inc. in 2008, according to the Wall Street Journal. The newspaper said the practices have been aimed at addressing five of the most common delivery-room errors:
