Why You Should Never Settle With the Insurance Adjuster

Insurance Adjuster in Mississippi

Personal Injury cases in Mississippi are settled everyday with no lawyer involvement between an injured party and their assigned insurance adjuster. We see people quickly signing the insurance adjuster’s paperwork every day instead of getting free legal advice first before accepting a quick offer.   Some clients may be thinking that an Injury lawyer will take most of the money, or probably can’t get more for you after fees. Some clients don’t want to have to go to court, or have anxiety and are too nervous, or just don’t have time to be messing with Injury lawyers and the court system. Some...

NY Approves Driver’s Licenses For Immigrants

Driver's Licenses

The legislation, known as the Green Light Bill, expands access to driver’s licenses to an estimated 265,000 undocumented New Yorkers. Supporters say it will create safer roads, increase state revenue and keep families together by preventing traffic violations from turning into deportations. “This is life-changing, and we are proud to stand on the right side of history because every New Yorker should have the opportunity to contribute to their economies and communities without fearing that they will be separated from their family because of a routine traffic stop,” Eddie A. Taveras, state immigration manager for the advocacy group FWD.us, said in...

ICE Can Fix This Issue Today

Ice Detention Center

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) is a sub-agency under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). ICE recently announced it is detaining 52,000 immigrants in jails and prisons around the United States. Congress has only appropriated funding to manage a daily average of around 45,000 beds until the end of September 2019. This discrepancy in the number of people in detention and the money allocated to appropriately detain them resulted in DHS taking funds away from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the U.S. Coast Guard, among other agencies, and reallocating the funds to ICE’s detention efforts. ICE can...
