Contact Box — Give me a name and phone number

Using the Contact Box

No. 1,598 If you ask me a question in the contact box, give me your name and  telephone number.  I have received a number of questions this past year that I would have been happy to answer, but there is no way to reply to the questioner. Your name and phone number will not be […]

Christmas Greetings!

No. 1,596 A paralegal in another state, where civil process is served by individuals, revealed that  every year they have a request to serve domestic relations pleadings on Christmas morning for the reason, supposedly, that the other party will be sure to be at home with the children.  But, of course, the real reason is […]

Learning as an Accomplishment

No. 1,595 Yesterday and today, while preparing a seminar presentation, I learned several things that are important for me to know as a lawyer.

No. 1,585 WARNING: SOME PEOPLE MIGHT CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING MUSINGS TO BE A SERMON.  YOU ARE FREE TO DISREGARD THE MESSAGE AT ANY TIME AND SWITCH OVER TO TWITTER.

House of Cards Returns Without Frank Underwood, But Not Really.

No. 1,585 He died, hated by everyone and especially by the wife whom he made President. Of course, there is an equally creepy drama behind the drama, as Kevin Spacey is gone from the screen in disgrace.  The first episode is dark and difficult to watch.  She quarrels with her advisers, none of whom seem […]

If you want an answer, give me a phone number or email address.

No. 1,583 I received two inquiries in the contact box today that I would like very much to answer.  But I cannot because neither of you left a phone number or email address.  If you don’t wish to do this, call me at 412-561-6303 and if necessary, leave contact information on the voicemail. CLT
