Between several website launches, new service pages, and interviews, March saw many completed projects and achievements for Stem’s clients. Here’s our monthly sampling:
- Chicago lawyer Jonathan Rosenfeld, who specializes in nursing home abuse cases, was quoted in a Lawyers USA article on the increase in number of nursing home residents with mental disabilities, and the resulting rise of patient-on-patient assaults. Jonathan has written previously about how the growing number of middle-aged and young people with violent tendencies in nursing homes has grave implications for the vulnerable and elderly.
- The Law Offices of John Marshall recently launched service pages for Union County and Middlesex County. Marshall’s team is experienced in drug crimes defense, particularly marijuana possession charges, and frequently discuss these issues at the New Jersey Criminal Defense & DWI Blog.
- John Hochfelder, our New York injury attorney client, notes that several recent appellate court decisions have left lawyers and plaintiffs in the dark. In one case, the appeals court affirmed a large judgment, but gave no description of the actual injury that warranted the award. In another two cases, damages for pain and suffering awards were reduced by at least $1,000,000 — with zero explanation or reason.
- Product injury law firm Hissey Kientz introduced a new website section dealing with Fentanyl, the drug released from the pain-relieving Duragesic patch. The new section includes information on the side effects of Fentanyl and answers some frequently-asked questions.
- Mike Myers of business litigation firm McClanahan Myers Espey was quoted in Texas Lawyer magazine, describing a bank-owned life insurance case the firm is handling. In Irma Johnson v. Amegy Bank, a widow was inadvertently mailed a $1,579,399 cheque from an insurance company made out to her late husband’s employer. McClanahan Myers Espey represents clients with corporate-owned and bank-owned life insurance claims.
- West Palm Beach criminal attorney Ron Chapman launched a new website that answers FAQs about Florida criminal records, particularly questions regarding sealing and expungement.
- It was another busy month for lawyers at BC law firm Clark Wilson: over the last few weeks, they’ve been interviewed or quoted in the World Trademark Review, Construction Business, and Lawyers Weekly on the Netbook dispute, construction contracts, and social networking, respectively.
- Themis Solutions is headed to the ABA Techshow in Chicago, where they’ll give away a year of free Clio service as part of their prize draw. There have been some positive reviews of the web-based legal practice management tool lately, so if you’re at at Techshow, be sure to swing by the Clio booth (#305).
- At PRC law firm King & Wood‘s China Law Insight blog, FDI lawyer Mark Schaub has written a lengthy post on China’s new Food Safety Law, which comes into force on June 1, 2009. The piece describes the new regime, which includes improved regulation, enforcement, and monitoring, as well as concrete food recall procedures.
- The Meadows Addiction Treatment Center unveiled an online collection of information about drug rehab. DrugRehabFAQ.com uses the frequently asked questions format to address common concerns about residential addiction treatment.
- A pair of posts on the JD Scoop Blog explain how JD Supra extends the reach of its members’ shared legal documents. The first post lists all the places that JD Supra distributes content on behalf of members — including Newstex, NuWire Investor, LinkedIn, and Twitter, among others. The second post outlines the tools available to JD Supra members to share their own work, such as widgets, RSS feeds, the Facebook application, etc.
We’ll be back again next month to share more interesting projects and news!
