A Review Of Attorney Gary P. Price And Lewis & Kappes Law Firm

Talk about ‘property’ and the first connection you are likely to make is ‘real estate,’ such as a house, a farmland, or a commercial building, that you can actually touch, feel, and live in. An intellectual property (IP) refers to something entirely different. Any idea that takes on a form and later finds expressions as a film, a book, a TV show, a game, or anything else that people play, watch, read, and recognize can be classified as IP. Trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, patents, literature, music, and art are all intellectual properties. To put it simply, IP is a creation of imagination over which a corporation or an individual enjoys legal monopoly.

Incidentally, the term ‘intellectual property’ is also used to refer to those laws protecting such monopolies. These laws have been designed to uphold the rights of the owner of an IP. Cases related to violation of these laws can be quite complicated. For this reason, it is important to hire an experienced legal professional. This article reviews attorney Gary P.

Maritime Industry has a wide range of involvement and it was said to be to be the largest industry with rapid growing of demands to sustain the needs of the society from the different part of the world. Because of the risk from the maritime industry, the Admiralty Law or also known as the Maritime Law was passed in order to take response and action for the cases which involves the maritime workers in crisis and other maritime issues. There were several cases involving various kind of accident and personal injuries that occurred in an area where a maritime company was holding their projects.

San Diego Landlords Beware Of Eviction Control When Terminating A Month-to-month Tenancy

Mercifully, San Diego does not have rent control. Unfortunately, San Diego does have its close relative-the unwelcome mother-in-law of rent control-better known as eviction control or for cause eviction.

San Diegos eviction control ordinance substantially impacts a landlords right to end a month-to-month tenancy. Moreover, the ordinance can be a trap for the unwary landlord unfamiliar with its mandatory notice provisions. A notice terminating a month-to-month tenancy that does not comply with the eviction control ordinance could cause the inexperienced landlord to lose his eviction case at trial and have to start the eviction process all over again.

What is San Diegos eviction control ordinance? The ordinance applies to every tenancy of two years or greater duration. When a tenant has lived in your rental property for two years or more, you may only terminate his month-to-month tenancy, or refuse to renew his lease, for certain specified reasons. On the face of it, the authorized reasons in the ordinance dont seem unreasonable. As examples, a landlord may only terminate the tenancy for things such as nonpayment of rent, breach of lease, tenant use of the property for an illegal purpose, or landlord withdrawal of the premises from the rental market just to name a few.

The ordinances restrictions wouldnt appear too onerous to most landlords since a landlords typical reasons for terminating a tenancy match those permitted by the eviction control ordinance. However, the ordinances mandates do not end there. The ordinance further requires that the landlord serve on the tenant a notice setting out the reason or reasons for terminating the tenancy at the same time that the landlord serves the 30-day notice, 60-day notice, or 3-day notice, whichever the case requires.

In other words, to comply with San Diegos eviction control ordinance, you must first have a permitted basis for terminating the tenancy. In addition, you must serve a separate notice on the tenant setting forth that permitted reason at the same time that you serve the notice terminating the tenancy. Thus, a tenant who is protected by the eviction control law should get two notices, one terminating the tenancy (the 3-day, 30-day, or 60-day depending upon the case) plus another notice setting forth the reason authorized by the eviction control ordinance.

Additionally, to be valid, both notices must be served according to law, i.e. they must be personally served on the tenant or served through a valid substitute service or post and mail service. I cant tell you how many landlords I have seen in my practice make the mistake of not complying with the eviction control ordinance. In fact, nearly every client I see who has tried to terminate a month-to-month tenancy with a 30-day or 60-day notice either didnt comply with the ordinance or didnt serve it right.

The consequences for the landlord to not terminating the tenancy right can be dire. At a minimum, the landlord will suffer the lost time and inconvenience of having to serve a new notice. If the landlord has sued on a bad notice, the consequences can be worse. The tenant will win the eviction case and the landlord will have to start the entire process over again, thus losing more time, rent, plus costs and attorneys fees. If you want to end a month-to-month tenancy, or not renew a tenancy, on some ground other than non-payment of rent, you should consult a lawyer to make sure that you comply with San Diegos eviction control ordinance.

Kratom Basics

Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) is a tropical tree native to the jungles of Southeast Asia. It has been used by people in Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia for centuries mostly to increase endurance for manual labor. Unlike many herbal remedies, the active constituents of Kratom, mitragynine and 7-OH-mitragynine have been identified and characterized. Both compounds are chemically related to yohimbine, but bind to mu, delta and kappa opiate receptors in the body and brain (mu opiate receptors underlie the pleasant and addictive effects of opiates like morphine and heroin).

Previously unknown in the west, it is becoming increasingly popular due to the activities of internet retailers, many of whom advertise it as a “legal high”. While this is true, Kratom has many legitimate uses aside from intoxication and has enormous potential as an alternative medicine for treating some very difficult to manage conditions.

Effects: In low doses, Kratom appears to be stimulant-like, providing extra energy and endurance. It is in higher doses that Kratom’s opiate-like effects become clear and users experience sedation, nausea and euphoria. Due to binding affinities for opiate receptors throughout the body, including the brain, Kratom’s effects are similar to many opiate analgesics including codeine and morphine. It produces states of intoxication that are similar to Opium and can be habit forming, albeit in a less intense way. Side effects of opiates can also be also present including itchiness and constipation.

Doses: The strength of Kratom is highly variable depending on the strain, supplier and time of year. A low dose varies from 2-4 grams and a high dose ranges from 5-10 grams. Doses higher than 10 grams, especially of high grade Kratom invariably cause unpleasant side effects including nausea, vomiting and motor agitation. Overdose and death has not been recorded with Kratom alone though it was detected in the blood of at least at least one polydrug death in Asia involving a whole cocktail of more harmful substances.

Method of consumption: There are various methods of consuming or extracting Kratom which can be acquired in various forms including whole leaf, crushed leaf and as a powder. The powdered form is easiest to deal with and will produce the greatest effect for the least amount of effort.

The simplest method of consuming kratom is to simply swallow the dry powder. This can be done relatively painlessly by pouring a little bit of water in the mouth, tilting one’s head back so that the water covers the throat, dumping in a pre-measured amount of Kratom from a piece of paper folded in half and swallowing. If done right the Kratom eater may not even taste the Kratom.
Eating Kratom dry delays the onset of effects and prolongs their duration. For a more rapid onset, Kratom can be simmered briefly in boiling water and then consumed as a tea. Due to the low solubility of active alkaloids in water, it is recommended that the plant material be consumed with the tea rather than filtered out.

Extracts: Alkaloids in Kratom, including mitragynine and 7-OH-mitragynine cannot readily be dissolved in water but can be extracted with other solvents. However, the effects of Kratom appear to be mediated by a wide range of different alkaloids and it is for this reason that extracts, sometimes labelled 10x, 30X or even 100X are often less potent than unaltered 1X plain leaf although one reported case of a a deadly overdose in Thailand involved Kratom extract in combination with other very strong drugs.
Medicinal Benefits and Heath Effects: Kratom has been used in Thailand traditionally to treat diarrhea and studies in rats have shown it to be as effective as Loperimide (Immodium AD) especially for the treatment of severe diarrhea (Chittrakarn, 2007).

Recently, chronic opiate users have begun to use Kratom for the treatment of opiate withdrawal (Vicknasingam, 2010). In most cases, Kratom can completely replace the opiate of abuse and relieves withdrawal symptoms even in very severe opiate users such as IV heroin addicts. Kratom itself can cause a physical dependance but its withdrawal symptoms are no where near as severe as that of illegal or prescription opiates and many addicts have found it useful to convert their addiction to Kratom first before quitting completely.

Because of its biological similarity to opiate analgesics, Kratom can successfully be used as an alternative for moderate to severe pain. It is less habit-forming than drugs such as oxycodone, morphine or hydrocodone that are traditionally used to treat conditions such as chronic back pain and may be just as effective.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that Kratom may be useful in alleviating symptoms of restles leg syndrome (RLS) although once habituated, withdrawal symptoms may make the condition temporarily worse.
Some of the compounds found in Kratom have been shown to have antioxidant properties and therefore are considered to be of significant health benefit. Additionally, consumption of Kratom can help add fiber to the digestive tract.

Legality: Kratom is completely legal in much of the west, including the United States and Canada. It is illegal to possess or sell in Thailand, Malaysia or Australia but is legal in Indonesia where much of the Kratom in western markets originate. It is not approved for human consumption by the FDA in the U.S. or relevant agencies in Canada and for this reason is not widely marketed at a large scale.

Sources: Kratom can be purchased in large quantities directly from growers but most customers in the United States and Canada prefer to order personal use quantities from reputable Kratom vendors in their own countries. Discretion is advisable when purchasing Kratom due to the large number of unscrupulous online retailers selling sub-par or even fake Kratom that is dangerous to consume.

Most Canadian customers buy from American sites but more Kratom stores from Canada, such as madamkratom.ca, have been appearing and offer lower shipping costs, faster delivery, and competitive prices. Nonetheless, many customers continue to order from American sources due to a lack of information or a perceived better value from U.S. sites.

Conclusion: Far from being just a “legal high” like Salvia, Kratom offers many health benefits for those interested in alternative medicines and may be a major godsend for those battling opiate addiction. While it is still largely unknown in the west, it is slowly becoming more popular and is readily acquired online.

Law Of Attraction Coach Tapping Into Your Vibration

Everything is energy. Even medical science measures the electrical signals in our cells as EKGs.

Stress has a specific vibrational quality. Although, stress is negative energy. Stress is the experience we have when our brains send out instructions that lead to an emotion (maybe anxiety, sadness, or anger), a signal, or a behavior that is not appropriate for whatever is happening. By not appropriate I mean, “the fight or flight mechanic is triggered and there isn’t a lion after you. No one is pointing a gun to your head. However, the chemicals run regardless.

By toughing or tapping meridian points, “the ancient practice of Acupuncture, we can begin to alleviate the stress” so it doesn’t accumulate in the body. It starts to iron out the wrinkles in our vibration so we can become more attractive, or more in sync with our desires. If you need the help of a Law of Attraction Coach, by all means get support! Using an independent listener to talk to will help you move off outdated patterns much more quickly.

Leading edge brain science and Quantum Physics are creating huge scientific leaps in teaching us how to change habitual ways of thought.

Now I’ll teach you an extremely effective energy tool. It’s called Temporal Tapping.

The left hemisphere of our brains is more aligned to critical thinking and prone to questioning… so we slip it past the critical thinker by using a statement phrased in the negative. Like… “I am no longer anxious about the security of my career”.

Beginning on the left side of your head at your temple. Tap with three fingers of your left hand, tap your temple, making your way to the back of the ear. Make firm contact and make a kind of a hop around the back of the ear until you find the base of the skull. You can attract Law of Attraction Relationships today and sky-rocket your level of positive potential!

Tap and speak the statement with the NO affirmation 5 times on the Left side and then we will repeat the technique on the right side with positive phrasing. “I’m no longer anxious concerning my career security.”

The right hemisphere of your brain is more accepting and willing to go with the flow. You do the same function, but this time beginning at the right temple and around your right ear. And say while you tap: “I am a highly valued employee. What I bring to the table is appreciated by my employer.”

If you consistently use this you will alleviate a lot of emotional and stressful charges extremely easily. Do this frequently. I know you’ll love the results.

Deller Law Riversides Prestigious Family Law Firm

Family law cases are emotional and stressful. Changing support orders, obtaining move-away orders and custody agreements require a court hearing. If the case contains allegations of domestic violence, it is likely that these hearings will be longer and more frequent. The complexity of these cases many times makes it necessary to hire a Riverside divorce lawyer or Riverside domestic violence attorney.

**This article is not intended to serve as legal advice. If you are involved in a family law case, contact Deller Family Law to discuss the specifics of your situation. **

Modifying a child support or alimony order usually requires returning to court. A judge will not change the terms of a support agreement without evidence of a valid basis for the change. Individuals seeking to reduce the amount of support they pay will need to show a change in their ability to pay the amount or that the recipient is no longer in need of as much money. Individuals seeking to increase the amount of support will likely need to demonstrate that they are receiving less money than they need, that there is no other resource for additional funds and that they are legally eligible to receive additional support.

A move-away order permits a parent to leave the city or state of their current residence with the child that is the subject of a custody arrangement. This order is usually required when the move will take the child further from the other parent than is legally acceptable. In these cases, the individual seeking to move must demonstrate that a pressing need, such as acquiring a new or better job or being closer to family, requires the move. Because a move-away order changes the original custody arrangement, the childs parents will have to negotiate new custody terms. Many times, this negotiation cannot occur until after the court grants a parents request to move. This typically means that the parties would need to attend another hearing to obtain court approval of the new agreement.

Domestic violence in a divorce case is handled very seriously. If either party claims to have been the victim of domestic violence, a case could easily include a criminal hearing, injunctions and potentially even jail time for one of the parties. The severity of these penalties makes it necessary to hire a Riverside domestic violence attorney.

The complexity of modifying support orders and obtaining a move-away order usually makes acquiring legal representation essential to a successful suit. Gathering sufficient evidence of changed circumstances and presenting a clear, concise argument for why a support order should be modified are not easily accomplished without some understanding of the court system and applicable family laws.

There are many Riverside divorce and domestic violence lawyers, but not all are experienced or prepared to handle contentious, difficult or emotional cases. Deller Family Law has the expertise and resources required to handle divorce cases, domestic violence allegations and to arrange move-away orders. Contact Deller Family law today at (951) 680-9000 to discuss your case.

Defending ‘no Win No Fee’ Legal Arrangements

Earlier this month, the Telegraph reported on the unusual story of an Essex taxi driver who is facing prosecution for apparently falsely claiming that an accident forced him to retire.

Michael Seabrook alleged that an accident that took place in April 2006 rendered him unable to return to work, and claimed GBP52,000 in compensation for lost earnings.

However, the insurer who Mr Seabrooke was claiming his injury compensation from, Aviva, smelt a rat and instructed private detectives to track Mr Seabrook’s movements, suspecting that he was still working. They were right.

Footage obtained between 2008 and 2009 clearly showed the claimant still driving his taxi. On the strength of this, Mr Seabrook’s claim plummeted to only GBP500 and he also suffered the further blow of being ordered to pay GBP3000 in legal costs, which meant he incurred a net loss of GBP2500.

Mr Seabrook, understandably, disputes Aviva’s claims but now has the further ignominy of facing possible prosecution and imprisonment for insurance fraud. His lawyer argues that he’s suffered enough, both in terms of the legal costs ruling and his ill health (although he can still work, the accident apparently did have some effect upon him).

Aviva’s solicitor, John Lezemore, said his client was taking the action against Mr Seabrook to act as a ‘deterrent’ against other fraudulent actions and criticised the culture of ‘no win no fee’ claims:

“The advent of accident management companies and no win no fee lawyers means that all fraudsters need to invest in their fraud is a day of their time at trial, if the case goes that far.”

This is a fair summation of what most commentators have to say about the no win no fee or Conditional Fee Arrangement (CFA) which, as I have mentioned in a previous article, was launched in 1995 by the Conservative government to replace legal aid for certain kinds of litigation: personal injury claims and libel cases among others.

‘No win no fee’ seems to be some sort of pariah in common parlance: to most people it conjures up images of seedy, greasy conmen enticing chancers to make a claim for something that hasn’t really happened.

As a spokesman, of sorts, for the industry, I find that generalisation a little too, well, generalised. There are two issues here: firstly, any system, as I have argued before, is susceptible to abuse and we shouldn’t let newsworthy opportunists like Mr Seabrook tar everyone using the system with the same brush.

There are plenty of people out there who have been genuinely very badly hurt as the innocent victims of accidents and there needs to be an area of the law in place to ensure that they have access to justice and compensation if needs be.

The motorcyclist from Wiltshire chopped up by a van driver who wasn’t looking where he was going, who has to guzzle morphine just to stave away the pains from his broken back, pelvis and hips, and who can barely help look after his children, surely couldn’t be labelled a ‘money grabber’ or a fraudster.

Claims management companies are expressly forbidden under UK law and Ministry of Justice guidelines from canvassing or indulging in what are often so gleefully called ‘ambulance chasing’ tactics. They exist to hold out a comforting hand to ordinary accident victims, perhaps naive in the ways of legal procedures, to claim money to rebuild their lives in as simple a way as possible.

If a victim is offered such a service by a pencil-moustached gent in a pinstripe suit, he’s probably a bit of a Del Boy and is unlikely to be operating either within the law, or with his client’s best interest in mind.

Most accident victims would rather have their lives back to the way they were. Money can never wholly, truly, compensate for a debilitating injury, but it can help to iron out the further stress of not being able to pay the mortgage because they can no longer stand up unassisted.

Secondly, ‘no win no fee’ was brought in to provide a more even service for claimants. Back when legal aid was the route to personal injury litigation for lower-income claimants, the solicitor knew he was going to get paid regardless, so he would often take on a case he knew he was unlikely to win, giving his unwitting client the false impression that he was on to a sure-fire success while he was at it.

With CFAs this doesn’t happen: if the solicitor loses, he has to write off his fees. This way, lawyers these days tend to be that little bit more honest about the projected outcome of their case.

Sure, no win no fee may be flawed, and there are going to be those members of society who will always try to take a short-cut through it to get an easy buck, but it has a valuable place in Britain, for the time being.

Duty Of Care In Torts Law

Duty of care in Donaghue -v- Stevenson 1932 was defined as exercising such care out of the box due in such ‘acts or omissions which you may reasonably foresee is planning to injure persons so directly affected which you ought reasonably to obtain them in contemplation’ and Caparo Industries -v- Dickman 1990 referred and situations whereby it may be fair, just, and reasonable to impose.

This duty is owed to 1 in physical proximity: e.g., in Haseldine -v – Daw 1941 to user of a lift negligently repaired, Buckland -v- Guilford Gas Light 1941 to child electrocuted by low cables upon climbing a tree, although not with a mother for shock nor for miscarriage to a single who had previously been being who the motive force along with the rider couldn’t to have known which were around in King -v- Phillips 1953 and Bourhill -v- Young 1942; so they can one out of legal proximity: e.g., in Donaghue -v- Stevenson 1932 for illness of consumer from manufacturer’s drink purchased by another, and not if immune as public policy in Hill -v- Chief Constable 1988, or as barristers or judges – Saif -v- Sydney Mitchell 1980; as well as to one with blood-ties: e.g., in McLoughlin -v- O’Brien 1982 to a mother who by news of accident ‘it was obvious that you will find affected’ ~it may be owed for financial decrease in special professional relationships -Mutual Life Assurance -v- Evett 1971, for careless words not provided clear as being without responsibility -Hadley Byrne -v- Heller & Partners 1964, and for serious nervous shock -Reilly -v- Merseyside RHA 1994.

The injury, additionally, if reasonably foreseeable is -Fardon -v- Harcourt 1932, negligence may entitle to damages, even punitive, Rookes -v- Bernard 1964, although if contemptuously claimed to as few as the smallest coin of the realm, e.g., without costs and nominal in Constantine -v- Imperial London Hotels 1944.

Circumstances in which a duty of care can be breached, except in the case of specific torts like libel or trespass -or underneath the Rylands -v- Fletcher rule where lawfully but at your own peril manufactured any unnatural by using land and excluding cases of immunity and circumstances the place where a statutory duty properly exercised infringes the right -such as the disturbance brought on by the noise of aircraft taking of or landing – however , not if improperly exercised: Fisher -v- Ruislip-Northwood UDC 1945, such circumstances can be regardless if a risk is know and never objected to: Smith -v- Charles Baker & Son 1891, indeed in which a risk is known and has now been consented to: Bowater -v- Rowley Regis Corp. 1944 ~even if you have contributory negligence: Stapley -v- Gypsum Mines Ltd 1953 -indeed even if despite instructions.

The typical is that of the ‘reasonable man’; if injury was risked: Bolton -v- Stone 1951 ~6 times in 3 decades meant not and also the degree of the danger is proportional as far as of care required; the seriousness of the injury risked too is proportional the amount of care necessary: Paris -v- Stepney BC 1951 -more to employee blind within a eye, rather than the total nevertheless the sort of the injury on such basis as: British Railways Board. -v- Herrington 1972; a social value whether justified danger: in Fisher failure were justified in war-time black-out to get up shaded lights to protect yourself from public nuisance to the cyclist, in Watt -v- Hertfordshire CC 1954 buying the wrong vehicle in this area of accident was justified by the valuable time that is going to have already been lost in enabling there help; the cost-benefit consideration: in Latimer -v- AEC 1953 to have done in excess of reasonable could have made raise the risk too remote by comparison -except should there be a statutory duty including in the Health & Safety Acts; that standard in the example of an expert’s negligence is, instead -Latimer, of an ‘reasonable expert’.

The link between the breach of duty as well as the resultant damage have to be proven to exist ought to be fact or perhaps a couple of law. Hmo’s is susceptible to the ‘but for’ rule: in Barnett -v- Chelsea etc. Hospital etc. 1968 breach by the failure on the doctor to call hasn’t been the caused of death, McWilliams -v- Sir Arrol 1962 failed since the safety-belt would not are actually worn if supplied, in Cutler -v- Vauxhall motors 1971 the operation on a graze had been recently ordered on an ulcer on the site than me and would be a pre-existing condition; but, just isn’t broken a causative link by way of consecutive cause and did not lessen a subsequent injury the initial factors in Baker -v- Willoughby 1970, nor necessarily disentitle multiple causes when on the balance of probabilities the link considerably was the explanation: McGhee -v- National Coal Board 1973; where harm or some of it is coming from a third party’s breach the ‘but for’ rule still refers to whether he type of injury happens to be seen: Hogan -v Betinck Colliers 1949.

Aforementioned only applies in the event the breach isn’t too remote, plus it wasn’t in Wieland -v- Cyril Lord Carpets 1969 the fact that fall elsewhere and later had resulted through the necessity to discard bi-focal glasses brought on by the driver’s negligence; the special sensitivity in the claimant wouldn’t matter -‘egg-shell skull’ rule: Robinson -v- Mailbox 1974 -‘one has to take the victim as he finds him’; inside Wagonmound 1961 during the time of the breach that oil spilled could burn on sea-water could hardly reasonably, as well as in Doughty -v- Turner Mfg. 1964 as a result of state expertise, are actually foreseen; employing Bradford -v- Robinson Rentals 1967 the frostbite was on account of providing a van without having a heater.

The claimant’s proof can go on to the defendant: Steer -v- Durable Rubber 1956; no less than some evidence is necessary of negligence even if ‘facts speak for themselves’ -they will not in case the claimant can’t say so what happened: Wakelin -v- LSWR 1886, negligence could be inferred from lack of explanation by defendant, for virtually any by claimant legally Reform (Contributory Negligence) Act 1945 proportionate reduction is made.
