In the beginning, lastverify will be used to open bank accounts remotely, and there are many other use-cases for the product, such as helping freelancers verify their skills and references when searching for work, or verify the holding of a specific type of wealth, such as equities or cryptocurrencies.

In future, lastverify will also allow users to receive part of the revenue from data sharing.

Terik Hashmi Business Consultant (N/A:N/A)

… what the internet has done to the entire profession … the internet took flight, creating lawyer-substitutes …”

— Terik Hashmi, Business Consultant & Attorney

MIAMI BEACH, FL, UNITED STATES, August 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — During the pre-publication reception at an art Galleria in the chic Garment District of Miami, Mr. Terik Hashmi announced that his newest book will be available soon on Amazon and other outlets.

“I noticed a particular need for more information about Online Reputation Management for Lawyers,” explained Mr. Hashmi at the event. “Being an attorney by training myself, I have seen first-hand what the internet has done to the entire profession. First of all, even while the economy was under pressure to cut costs in the 1990s, law schools continued to mint new lawyers. Then the internet took flight, creating lawyer-substitutes such as Legalzoom that increase the pressure on the profession. And as if that was not enough, now everybody can post negative opinions about attorneys anywhere on the internet, from Yelp to setting up a hate blog about lawyers. If you are a lawyer, how do you deal with that?”

Mr. Hashmi has spent months researching this book and conducting countless interviews with practicing attorneys and professionals in the area of Online Reputation Management (ORM). Among his findings were, as to Online Reputation Management, that most attorneys focus on comments posted about them rather than positive information in general. The result is that an attorney about whom a negative comment has been published attempts to rectify the situation, rather than publicizing positive information that will have a tendency to supersede any negative comment. The conclusion is that it is difficult to improve one’s reputation with online comments. There as to be substance that is recognized by search engines such as Google as "valuable" to other users. “Content is more important than Comment,” quipped Mr. Hashmi.

Another conclusion is that no practicing attorney can neglect his or her online reputation. Explains Mr. Hashmi: “Just one look at job ads on Craigslist shows you the economic pressure on the legal profession. You’ll see attorney jobs advertised at $22 or $25 per hour. It is hard to make a living at such rates with a $100,000 in student loans. If you add bad online reputation to the mix, the result is that you cannot make money in law. Thus, you must address your online reputation unless you chose to wear a scarlet letter in public and be broke.”

Mr. Hashmi thanked in particular his editor, Timeless Words. The book is expected to be available on www.amazon.com shortly.

Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys Focus on Reviewing Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Cases Related to Prolonged Roundup Weedkiller Use

Logo for Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys

Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys focus on Roundup case reviews for those claiming diagnosis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma popular weedkiller after prolonged exposure.

I strongly encourage anyone who believes their long term exposure to Roundup contributed to an NHL diagnosis to seek out legal assistance to see if they may be entitled to compensation.”

— Glen Lerner, ESQ.

LAS VEGAS, NV, UNITED STATES, August 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The law offices of Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys announced they will streamline their focus regarding Roundup case reviews for those claiming diagnosis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) after prolonged exposure to the popular weedkiller. This decision came after more and more Individuals and family members of deceased have come forward to claim Roundup weed killer is believed to have contributed to often severe side effects.

One such man, Dewayne Johnson, was exposed to Roundup during his tenure as a groundskeeper. He was later diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma that is believed to be linked to his high exposure levels to Roundup for a prolonged period of time.

Based on evidence and testimony presented during trial, a California jury agreed that Johnson’s now terminal cancer was the results of his exposure to Roundup. Product manufacturer Monsanto was ordered to pay him $289,000,000 in damages after finding they failed to warn about severe health hazard, in addition to acting with malice, oppression or fraud and should therefore be punished for its conduct (case no CGC-16-550128).

Glysophate – Dangerous or Harmless Like Monsanto Suggests?

Glysophate is an active ingredient most widely used in herbicides – including Roundup. Herbicides are commonly used by farmers, groundskeepers of public spaces and homeowners alike to control weeds.

Monsanto maintains that Roundup has safely been sold and used for 40 years when used as directed. Monsanto Vice President Scott Partridge released a statement saying “We will appeal this decision and continue to vigorously defend this product.”

Despite Monsanto’s stand, occupational exposure studies of glyphosate have shown a link between NHL and glysophate.

Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys strongly encourages anyone who believes their long term exposure to Roundup contributed to an NHL diagnosis to seek out legal assistance to see if they may be entitled to compensation. Glen Lerner’s Las Vegas and Chicago-based law firms offer free Roundup NHL case reviews.

We offer instant access to the nation's skilled and capable mesothelioma lawyers who are extremely experienced in helping US Navy Veterans with a mesothelioma compensation claim”

The group says, "Buying into Internet nonsense such as, 'get medical treatment first, and then talk to a lawyer' or 'no lawsuit required' are hook lines and we want to help a person with this rare cancer, or their family to avoid pitches like this."
http://NewMexico.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

According to the New Mexico Mesothelioma Victims Center, "We are urging a Navy Veteran in New Mexico who has recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma who was exposed to asbestos on a US Navy ship, or at a shipyard in Norfolk, Virginia; Bremerton, Washington; Bangor, Maine; Long Beach, California; Hunters Point, California; Boston, Massachusetts, Brooklyn, New York or in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to call us anytime at 800-714-0303 in order to ensure they, or their family members do not get misled by Internet ads about mesothelioma.

http://NewMexico.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The New Mexico Mesothelioma Victims Center is urging a diagnosed US Navy Veteran, or any US citizen with mesothelioma, to steer clear of Internet or cable TV advertisements that suggest the following:

* "No lawsuits needed"

* "A Federal Mesothelioma Compensation Claim Center"

* "Get the financial claim settlement you deserve"

* "Get medical treatment first, and then when you get around to it call us"

Before a US Navy Veteran with mesothelioma in New Mexico and/or their family retain the services of a law firm to advance a compensation claim for this rare cancer caused by exposure to asbestos, they are urged to contact the Mesothelioma Victims Center at 800-714-0303 for some incredibly honest advice about lawyers, and who consistently gets the best possible compensation nationwide. http://NewMexico.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

However, mesothelioma does happen in New Mexico. http://NewMexico.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in New Mexico include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, oil refinery workers, civilian employees of the Defense Department, manufacturing, or industrial workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, miners, or construction workers. Typically, the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s.

Lerner & Rowe Injury Attorneys Now Accepting Essure Injury Cases

Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys

Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys are now accepting claims for review to pursue compensation from Bayer for those injured by Essure.

This can be an intimidating undertaking, and we want to help you come out on top. Don’t let Bayer use their size against you. You deserve justice and we want to be the ones to help you get it.”

— Kevin Rowe

PHOENIX, ARIZONA, US, August 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Major pharmaceutical brand Bayer has announced their intention to discontinue the sale and distribution of the birth control implant Essure. This decision comes in the wake of several restrictions and mandatory changes dictated by the FDA due to the serious, and even deadly, side effects associated with use of Essure.

Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys are now accepting claims for review to pursue compensation from Bayer for those injured by Essure. If you, or someone you know, has suffered serious and life-changing injuries from having Essure in your body, please reach out to our team today. We will fight to ensure that you receive your due justice. Our firm offers free consultations and we won’t request any payments from you unless we achieve a successful result for your case.

Bayer’s Essure Birth Control Implant

Essure was the only non-surgical, permanent birth control option available to women in the USA. The product itself consists of a flexible coil made of a nickel alloy surrounding two polyester fibers. In an out-patient procedure known as hysteroscopic sterilization, a doctor implants the coil in the fallopian tubes. Over time, scar tissue grows around the device which prevents any released eggs from reaching the uterus and the possibility of fertilization.

Although Essure originally received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2002, reports of serious side effects led to the first set of restrictions placed upon the device. The FDA then mandated a “black box” warning label for the product’s packaging in 2016. Further restrictions were put in place earlier this year.

Despite their decision to discontinue sales of Essure, Bayer still firmly believes the device is safe for public use. As a result, they will not be willing to simply admit defeat in injury cases brought against them. That is why you shouldn’t try to face them alone. Let our team of caring and professional attorneys do the hard work for you. “This can be an intimidating undertaking, and we want to help you come out on top. Don’t let Bayer use their size against you. You deserve justice and we want to be the ones to help you get it,” says personal injury attorney Kevin Rowe.

Mike Brandner Injury Attorneys are now accepting claims against Essure birth control implants and the serious side effects resulting from the device.

— Mike Brandner

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA , US, August 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In July, pharmaceutical giant Bayer announced their plan to discontinue the production and distribution of their birth control implant known as Essure. Essure is the only permanent form of non-surgical birth control available for women in the United States. However, this device has led many women to develop painful, and sometimes fatal, side effects.

The office of Mike Brandner Injury Attorneys is now accepting and reviewing claims against Essure birth control implants and the serious side effects resulting from having the device implanted. If you or someone you love has been injured as a result of this implant, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

Essure Birth Control Implant

The Essure implant itself is made up of polyester fibers surrounded by a flexible nickel alloy coil. The device is then implanted into the fallopian tubes in an non-surgical, out-patient procedure, where scar tissue will build around the implant over time. This scar tissue blocks the path released eggs take from the ovaries to reach the uterus, thus preventing pregnancy. This procedure is known as hysteroscopic sterilization.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) originally approved Essure in 2002. However, reports of serious side effects stemming from use of the implant led to the FDA making some changes. In 2016, the FDA began to require a “black box” warning label on all packaging of Essure, and placed further restrictions on the distribution of the product two years later.

Bayer still firmly believes that their product is safe for public use. As a result, they will do all they can to ensure that you are not compensated for injuries you sustained from use of Essure. Personal injury lawyer Mike Brandner knows, “pharmaceutical giants like Bayer are notorious for being extremely resistant to admitting fault and compensating those their products have injured.

Attorney Patrick Michael Megaro, the Senior Partner at Halscott Megaro, P.A. announces the creation of the Deron Castro Memorial Scholarship.

Halscott Megaro PA (N/A:N/A)

If I or anyone in my family was charged with a crime, I would have hired Deron Castro. He was hands down one of the best trial attorneys in New York and in the country.”

— Patrick Michael Megaro, Criminal Defense Lawyer

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Criminal Defense Attorney Deron Castro departed this Earth too soon and too suddenly in late July 2018. He will not be forgotten by his family, his children, his colleagues whose respect he earned, and his many grateful clients whom he served in over 24 years of his law practice. He sought justice for many unjustly accused. He took more than 90 criminal cases to trial, winning the vast majority of them.

Only days earlier, in early July 2018, Deron had a major win in the Queen’s County Supreme Court when the judge agreed to throw out evidence against the defendant in a murder case after a pre-trial hearing. The District Attorney sought to introduce statements of the defendant made during an interrogation by homicide detectives. After carefully cross-examining the detective at the hearing, Castro was able to persuade the judge to suppress the evidence by citing past cases where similar evidence was tossed out. It is quite unusual for a judge to suppress a defendant's own statements, let alone to have them suppressed in a murder case. Few attorneys could accomplish such a feat in court. Deron was one of them.

In his honor, Halscott Megaro, P.A. will be hosting its Annual Essay Writing Competition, which is open to all current full-time and part-time enrolled students in an ABA accredited law school. One winner will be selected and will receive a $1000.00 scholarship award from the Deron Castro Memorial Scholarship.

Deron Castro, Esq. was a personal friend and colleague of Patrick Michael Megaro. Mr. Castro started his career at The Legal Aid Society, Criminal Defense Division, in Queens, New York as a public defender before going into private practice. Mr. Castro and Mr. Megaro also later cooperated criminal cases, such as the successful appeal in People v. Small (2011), see https://caselaw.findlaw.com/ny-supreme-court/1565846.html.

He was well-known and respected as one of the most successful and skilled criminal defense attorneys, securing acquittal after acquittal for his clients. A fearless advocate, he provided nothing but the highest caliber of representation to his loyal and dedicated clientele.

States Mr. Megaro, “If I or anyone in my family was charged with a crime, I would have hired Deron Castro. He was hands down one of the best trial attorneys in New York and in the country. Castro won with his skill, preparation, and fighting spirit. He was highly respected by other criminal defense lawyers and feared by prosecutors.”
Outside of the courtroom, Deron Castro was a loving and devoted father of three and caring husband. Always involved in his children’s activities, one could find Mr. Castro running from basketball practice to dance recitals at night and on the weekends. He was known for his kindness, generosity, and perpetual positive attitude which impacted all those around him.

This Scholarship is dedicated to the memory of one of the great lawyers in New York City, and the United States, to ever grace a courtroom with his presence.

Eligibility:

The scholarship is open to all current full-time and part-time matriculated students in an ABA accredited law school.

How to Apply:

For applying the essay contest, the candidates must write a 1000 word or fewer essay on the following topic:
What makes the difference between a good and a great criminal defense attorney?

Deron certainly was one of those great attorneys, but what exactly makes a criminal attorney “great”? Here is a starting point. One criminal defenses attorney suggests that four qualities are necessary to be at least “good”: “[1] The single most important thing a criminal defense lawyer can do is over-investigate their case. It is the probably the biggest single difference in lawyers, how much independent investigation they do. …. [2] Everyone knows that criminal defense lawyers must be strong negotiators. … There are really only two factors that should be considered in negotiation: what does this person deserve and what is the likelihood of conviction if the case proceeds to trial (what is the strength of the case). … [3] Third, provide a technical legal defense. This is the kind of thing you learn in law books. Read the discovery. Read the law. Reread the discovery. Reread the law. There is usually something to argue about. … [4] In my opinion, the toughest skill, is being able to win at trial. Not many lawyers will take tough cases to trial. …” Robert King, “What makes a good criminal lawyer?”, see https://www.robertkinglawfirm.com/blog/2017/may/what-makes-a-good-criminal-lawyer-/ (2017)

Submission Details:

Your essay must be submitted via email to info@appealslawgroup.com and must be in Word or PDF format.
In the alternative, the applicant may submit a 5-minute or less video essay. The video must be a closeup of the applicant, giving their essay as a lecture or speech, addressing the camera directly and must have a green screen in the background. Editing is permitted.
The essay must be submitted along with a short bio on the applicant, a passport-style photograph of the applicant, and a release permitting publication of the photograph and the essay (or video) by Halscott Megaro, P.A., its agents or assigns.

Award Amount:

The $1000.00 scholarship will be awarded to the winning candidate.

Application Deadline:

The deadline for essay submission is September 1, 2018
The winner will be announced September 8, 2018

Halscott Megaro, P.A. is a law firm dedicated to the pursuit of justice, focusing on criminal and civil appeals, post-conviction relief, criminal defense, clemency advocacy, and civil rights advocacy.

Never Talk to the Police, by Patrick Megaro Criminal Defense Attorney

Race, gender discrimination at Los Angeles airport police department, lawsuit says

Wrongful termination is part of a pattern against African American leaders, according to fired lieutenant

LOS ANGELES, USA, August 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The head of the Los Angeles World Airports Police Department engaged in systemic racism against African American lieutenants, commanding officers and sergeants since he took over the agency less than two years ago, says a wrongful termination lawsuit filed today.

At least 11 high-ranking African American officers have been fired, demoted, or subjected to some other adverse employment action since Chief David L. Maggard joined the department in 2016, according to the lawsuit, filed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court.

In the lawsuit, Lt. Marlo Richardson says that a letter falsely accusing her, a Sergeant, and a Captain of favoritism was used as a pretext for her wrongful termination in February. She alone was singled out for discipline and termination, according to the lawsuit. Richardson claims that, under Maggard’s leadership, she was subjected to racial and gender discrimination, intentional infliction of emotional distress, sexual harassment and a hostile work environment.

Richardson was an 18-year veteran of LAWAPD, who performed her job duties in an exemplary manner under seven previous chiefs. As a result of her performance, she was promoted in 2001 to Field Training Officer; in 2004 to Sergeant; in 2011 to Sergeant II; and in 2014 to Lieutenant, where she also was selected to work special assignments. The LAWAPD’s 450 sworn officers are assigned to LAX and Van Nuys airports.

The letter arrived in response to disciplinary action taken against one of Richardson’s officers. The officer earlier had requested temporary assignment to light duty. Richardson followed department policy and forwarded the officer’s request to the Human Resources department, which makes those decisions. H.R. approved the officer’s request.

But it later was learned that H.R. had approved the officer’s request without adhering to department policy requiring the officer to provide a doctor’s note or medical certification. All decisions to grant or deny light duty lay entirely with the human resources department, and Richardson only forwarded the request to H.R. in the manner required by department policy, the lawsuit says.

Richardson’s firing — purportedly connected to her handling of the light duty request — “was based on a discriminatory mind-set as is evidenced by the campaign of discrimination against numerous black sworn personnel of the LAWAPD,” the lawsuit states.

Defendants named in the lawsuit include Maggard, as an individual, as well as in his capacity as chief of LAWAPD, and the City of Los Angeles. The lawsuit was filed by Los Angeles civil rights attorney V. James DeSimone.

“The Defendants’ pattern and practice of discriminatory conduct on the basis of race … manifested itself in other ways,” the lawsuit states, “including systematically maintaining an inconsistent and discriminatory double standard of discipline including maintaining a policy and practice of terminating African American employees for purported transgressions that would not have resulted in termination had these individuals been other races or ethnicities.”

DeSimone has dedicated his practice to providing vigorous and ethical representation to achieve justice for those whose civil and constitutional rights are violated. Jeremy Lessem and Jamal Tooson, of Lessem, Newstat & Tooson LLP, of Los Angeles, are co-counsels who focus on civil litigation and criminal defense.

DeSimone is available for interviews.

California Verdict Sets Significant Precedent for RoundUp Lawsuits

A California court verdict has set a massive precedent for the cases brought against Monsanto. Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys is currently accepting cases.

Mega corporations like Monsanto are notoriously intimidating to go against on your own. We want to make sure that you don’t get bullied into submission. They have to be held accountable.”

— Kevin Rowe

PHOENIX, ARIZONA, US, August 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — At the end of last week, a California court reached a verdict that many believe has set a massive precedent of expectations for the continued wave of cases brought against Monsanto and it’s weed-killing product RoundUp. After deliberating for three days, a jury concluded that Dewayne Johnson’s use of RoundUp as a regular part of his former job as a school groundskeeper was responsible for the terminal cancer he developed. The court ordered Monsanto, the company that manufactures and distributes RoundUp, to pay Johnson $39 million for his suffering and a further $250 million in punitive damages. Our team at Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys is currently accepting and reviewing cases to represent you if you or a loved one was injured at the hands of Monsanto and RoundUp.

Links to Cancer

RoundUp has been thought to cause cancer, specifically non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, in a number of its users for years. Despite these claims, Monsanto has stood by and defended RoundUp’s safety for continued use. The company frequently cites studies that claim that glyphosate, the main weed-killing ingredient in RoundUp, isn’t immediately carcinogenic to humans. Yet, lawsuits against the product appear to focus more on the negative effects of the entire chemical solution, as opposed to the single ingredient.

Dewayne Johnson’s case was the first to reach trial, expedited by the terminal nature of his disease, and has set the tone for the remaining cases against the company. According to CNN, more than 800 patients are currently in the process of bringing cases against Monsanto that claim Roundup led to their developing cancer.

Monsanto is Standing by Their Product

Even after this monumental verdict, Monsanto continues to defend the safety of RoundUp and plans to continue to fight against these allegations. Following the decision, Monsanto’s Vice President Scott Partridge released a statement saying, “We will appeal this decision and continue to vigorously defend this product, which has a 40-year history of safe use and continues to be a vital, effective and safe tool for farmers and others."

If you, or someone you care about, were a user of RoundUp and developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, or other cancers, as a result, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys. We will work together with you to form a plan of action to fight for your justly due compensation. Let us do the heavy lifting for you. “Mega corporations like Monsanto are notoriously intimidating to go against on your own. We want to make sure that you don’t get bullied into submission by a company that is trying to cover up their gross negligence. They have to be held accountable,” says personal injury attorney Kevin Rowe.

Noted Background Check Expert and Author of "The Safe Hiring Manual" will Speak at Global Event with 22,000 Security Professionals Attending from 100 Countries.

Without exercising due diligence with background checks, employers risk hiring workers with an unsuitable criminal record or falsified credentials that can result in a legal and financial nightmare.”

— ESR Founder and CEO Attorney Lester Rosen

NOVATO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Attorney Lester Rosen, founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of leading global background check firm Employment Screening Resources® (ESR), will present a session entitled “Background Checks: Trends, Best Practices, and Legal Compliance” on Wednesday, September 26, 2018, during the 2018 Global Security Exchange (GSX) at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“Without exercising due diligence with background checks, employers risk hiring workers with an unsuitable criminal record or falsified credentials that can result in a legal and financial nightmare,” explains Rosen, the author of ‘The Safe Hiring Manual.’ “However, the screening process has become more complicated due to federal and state legislation, litigation, and regulation.”

During the session – which is number 6311 and lasts from 3:45 PM to 4:45 PM PT – Rosen will discuss cutting-edge issues such as the use of social media for screening, fast-spreading “Ban the Box” laws, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) approach to the use of criminal records, and how to avoid class action lawsuits for alleged violations of the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).

Formerly the ASIS Annual Seminar and Exhibits, the 2018 Global Security Exchange (GSX) will take place from September 23 to 27, 2018. GSX is a global event with more than 22,000 security professionals attending from over 100 countries to explore the latest security solutions from more than 550 exhibitors and shape their security strategy in over 300 sessions.
