Ever since The New Yorker’s shocking investigation into the dozens of sexual harassment allegations against media mogul Harvey Weinstein — and the people who allegedly helped to cover them up — the floodgates have opened for victims of sexual assault in the workplace to share their stories.
All of these accounts are out in the open, creating a national dialogue about how workplaces handle sexual harassment and gender discrimination, and whether the law puts undue burden onto victims to prove misconduct. But will anything actually change?
For this project, I was tasked with creating an easy-to-read guide to help victims of car accidents to file a successful insurance claims. This PDF is featured on one of our major practice area landing pages. Designed by Brianna Kelsey.

Sadly, this isn’t the first time a customer has been gravely injured by the contents of their coffee cup. Cases like this and the infamous McDonald’s coffee lawsuit are treated as a punchline among those who feel our country has become overly litigious, despite the life-altering injuries suffered by victims like our client.

The New York City Cabaret law may sound like something out of the hit Kevin Bacon flick Footloose, but it’s a very real dance ban with a controversial legacy going back nearly 100 years. And that law — which prohibits dancing in all establishments unless the owners get a “virtually unobtainable” cabaret license — might just get scrapped this year, drastically changing the city’s nightlife safety regulations.
When a product recall officially goes out, a series of events take place: the item is pulled from shelves and consumers are generally given the option of a refund, replacement, or repair.
But where do the recalled products end up when they’re removed from supermarkets, malls, or consumers’ homes? After all, the number of products recalled each year is not an insignificant figure.
Cyclone, tropical storm, typhoon, hurricane. These storms may go by different names around the globe, but they are universally feared for the destruction and havoc they wreak wherever they make landfall.
As we approach hurricane season — which takes place between June 1 and Nov. 30 for Atlantic coast residents — it’s important to get back into a hurricane safety mindset well before the first storm of the summer makes headlines and the crowds rush supermarkets for milk, bread, and eggs.
As if your bloated email inbox wasn’t enough, your smartphone’s voicemail may be the latest thing under threat of spam.

The fair treatment of prisoners is an increasingly hot topic issue in our country, with entire documentaries and TV series devoted to the debate. But for inmates with disabilities, the difficulties of life in the prison system can be compounded when they’re denied access to the accommodations they need.

Twitter exploded on Friday, July 28 when a subsidiary of brick-and-mortar book giant Barnes & Noble reportedly canceled hundreds of orders for Beats by Dre headphones after a glitch in its system made the trendy headphones practically free.
