Thanks goodness it is finally here. Election Day! I am writing this article on the morning of November 3rd and I am the happiest I have been in a quite some time.
Why am I so happy? I am happy because the election is finally coming to an end. I have grown so sick of all the personal attac...

Of course, anytime I see an award like that I immediately want to know how they calculated the damages. Which made me think that maybe you may also want to know a little bit about how damages ar...
In my practice, I’ve talked with thousands of truckers. More than I can count have bought into some interesting theories about how to keep a traffic ticket from turning into a conviction or how to keep one off their motor vehicle record: A few of my personal favorites:
