Do-It-Yourself Legal – Can Saving Money Now Cost You Money Later?

By Stacy G. Jackson

It is no secret that these are tough times economically.  Businesses large and small are feeling the crunch, as well as families.  So the temptation is strong to save some money in legal fees by using self-prepared legal documents such as contracts, leases, wills, trusts and powers of attorney, just to name a few.  And with a plethora of “free” or low-cost legal documents available on the web or through software purchases at office supply stores, it may seem cheap and easy to fill in a few blanks and hit “print”.

But in an effort to save money, could you be costing yourself in the long run?  What happens when it is time to enforce your contracts, evict your tenant, or file a will with probate?  Will these self prepared or pre-printed documents withstand legal scrutiny?  Do they follow the law of your state?  Will your wishes be followed?

New Office Space

By Elizabeth V. Grana

Request Electric installed the electric and a new canned lighting system as well. Read the rest of this entry »


9-11 Rememberance

By Anthony R. Behr

 

This is a reprint of an e-mail sent by Tony Behr on the morning of the 10th Anniversary of 9-11:

Maryrose and I had just sent six of our children, ages 7 to 17, safely off to school that morning. Maryrose was making coffee and I was sitting at the kitchen table, watching a strangely odd story on TV about a small plane that had crashed into the World Trade Center.  After quite a while, the helicopter TV camera panned to a very large airplane clearly aiming at the Towers. It was immediately apparent that our country was under attack. I yelled to Maryrose to come watch the TV. We sat there, almost motionless, as the plane crashed into the Tower, changing our lives and our country forever. Within seconds the phone rang. It was Christopher. He had just gone away to college. I said “hello” and he asked “What the hell is going on?”  It was the first time I felt helpless as a parent. We stayed on the phone for what seemed an eternity, me trying to act as a strong parent comforting his oldest child, and he seeking courage and safety. It is a moment I will never forget, both as a parent and as an American. Read the rest of this entry »
