When Dad Says: “Try a Cheese Sandwich”


My dad practiced law and he told me when I started, “You need to try a lot of cases so you get good at trial work” and have a “bite with your bark”. He said, “you go try everything, try a cheese sandwich”.  So, early in my career I suffered several losses at the courthouse and wondered why.  Was I not any good at trying cases? I tried a bunch of auto injury cases back in the 1990’s. I remember...

There are constant reminders on television with advertising for asbestos claims, talcum powder, etc. There are also a lot of...

Pitfalls to be Aware of with Customizable Auto Insurance


Lately, I can’t watch television without seeing an advertisement for auto insurance that talks about customizable auto insurance.  The sales pitch is that you only pay for the insurance you need.  In fact, for some insurance companies, that seems to be the focus of their entire marketing campaign.  However, there’s one big problem with this – how does the average person know what they really need? The reality is that there are a ton of insurance companies that are all...

Dash Cams – Could save you big time!


Dash cam is short for dashboard camera.  It is a video camera that you install in your car that records while you are driving.  Last year I wrote an article in support of the dash cam.  Here we are a year later and I would contend it is even more important now than it was a year ago.  Per the Connectncdot.gov website, Charlotte, North Carolina had the highest percentage of vehicle accidents in all of North Carolina for 2018 and...
