Pauls Pay it Forward Car Wash 2017 – Lerner & Rowe Gives Back

The Veterans Treatment Court Celebrates its Fifth Anniversary

Tampa, FL (Law Firm Newswire) October 20, 2017 – Veterans Treatment Court recently celebrated its fifth anniversary. It is a program supervised by the court in Marion County for individuals who are charged with a crime and who are afflicted with a mental illness, substance abuse or other mental health condition relevant to their military service.

The veterans are paired with veteran mentors, normally from the same military branch, who provide them with the help they need. They receive the needed treatment, medication and other support to reattain their place in life. Upon graduation from the program, the State Attorney’s Office files a “nolle prosequi,” or no information on their charges.

Florida veterans’ lawyer David W. Magann states, “Veterans have and continue to benefit greatly from the services provided by the Veterans Treatment Court.”

According to County Judge Jim McCune, who manages the Veterans Treatment Court, the objective is to get well, remain well and do well. If a veteran fails a drug screen or commits other crimes, they will be put in jail or expelled from the program.

Veterans Treatment Court started as an outgrowth of the Marion County Mental Health Court program. McCune and a group consisting of a public defender, State attorney and probation officer travelled to Buffalo, New York to look at the first Veterans Treatment Court in the nation. McCune said the program began small, and that initially, only combat veterans facing charges of misdemeanors who had been honorably discharged were qualified. As the program progressed, it included veterans who were charged with specific felonies, non-combat veterans and dishonorably discharged veterans.

One of the reasons veterans have a tendency to do better in Veterans Treatment Court than in the regular court system is the team environment. It is also helpful that they have a regimented schedule, similar to the schedule in the military. In the future, McCune and program coordinator Johnny Valentine say they wish to expand community outreach and educate others about the program.

The Steinberg Law Firm Makes Donation to the Henry Timrod Library

Summerville Attorneys: Kelly Alfreds and Steven Goldberg with library’s president, Howard Bridgeman and Cindy Koontz.

Charleston, SC (Law Firm Newswire) October 19, 2017 – While the Steinberg Law Firm is well known for defending the rights of those who are injured, the attorneys at the firm are also proud of their service to their community.

The Steinberg Community Foundation has as its mission to give back to local organizations within the Lowcountry that are committed to improving the lives of others. The Steinberg Law Firm community fund is a vehicle through which the law firm makes donations to various non-profit, or 501(c)(3) organizations.

This year, one of the recipients is the Henry Timrod Library, also referred to as the Timrod. The Timrod Library is one of just two membership libraries in South Carolina, and is managed by a Board of Directors of which the President is in charge. It was also the very first library in the town of Summerville.

In 1897 a group of young Summerville women formed a Chautauqua Reading Circle; and from that modest commencement, the Timrod Library began its journey. The women contributed the books from their reading circle to be the basis of a membership library chartered April 23, 1908. After seven years their library had a permanent location. Board members, three employees and numerous volunteers work to implement the objectives of the Timrod in the Summerville community.

The Steinberg Law Firm donated $1,000 to the Henry Timrod Library to fund its literacy programs. The attorneys at the Steinberg Law Firm say, “We are pleased to be able to give to an organization that is a viable part of the Summerville community, and that has made contributions to its cultural, literary and social development.”

Because it is not a public library, the Timrod relies on dues, fees, contributions, bequests, memorials and the magnanimity of friends for the financing needed for the maintenance and expansion of its collection, and for the preservation of its historic building. The Timrod provides several cultural, literary and social programs for the community. Among them are:

· A lecture series every February
· A Book Fair every fall
· A discussion group nearly every third Sunday at 3:00 p.m.
· A Patron’s party every spring
· A Southern shrimp boil every September
· Many literary events during the year
· A summer story time for children of the community
· A joint endeavor with after school care programs to offer children free library time

Lawsuit Filed in Northern California Wine Country Fires by Law Firm of Robins Cloud

Lawsuit alleges PG&E Corporation and Pacific Gas & Electric Company’s equipment came into contact with vegetation, sparking Wine Country Fires.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA, October 18, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Santa Monica-based law firm of Robins Cloud has filed a lawsuit arising from the Wine Country Fires, alleging that PG&E Corporation and Pacific Gas & Electric Company are responsible for the harm caused to homeowners Wayne and Jennifer Harvell. The complaint was filed today in San Francisco County Superior Court (Case #CGC-17-561937 ).

“The immediate filing of this lawsuit will ensure that PG&E does not destroy any critical evidence,” said attorney Bill Robins. “The lawsuit will allow us to take the depositions of key PG&E executives and officials and to obtain all relevant records related to the Wine Country Fires,” added Robins.

The lawsuit alleges that PG&E knew that drought-like conditions existed, resulting in a high fire danger. As such, the potential damage from a fire would likely result in the loss of life, significant destruction to real and personal property and harm to members of the general public, according to the lawsuit. The complaint further alleges that PG&E failed to properly maintain and to repair power lines while also negligently failing to properly trim, prune and maintain vegetation near their electrical equipment. The lawsuit alleges that the defendant’s electrical equipment came into contact with vegetation as a result of failing to conduct frequent inspections of their equipment, sparking the Wine Country Fires.

The Harvells seek compensation for personal property loss along with the emotional harm caused by this life-changing tragedy. “This fire has been devastating to our family and to our entire community,” said Wayne Harvell. He added, “Some things can be replaced, but it is the things we cannot replace that is so tragic — pictures and videos of our family’s memories that we will never be able to look at again. We hope through the filing of this lawsuit that we can achieve justice and to help to prevent this type of destruction from occurring again.” The Harvells lived on Mocha Lane in Santa Rosa.

“This lawsuit seeks to the change the way PG&E or other utilities operate in the future, resulting in safer conditions for California residents,” said Robins. Robins Cloud filed the lawsuit along with Donald Edgar of the Edgar Law Firm in Santa Rosa.
