Attorney Pius Joseph

Attorney Pius Joseph

AskTheLawyers.com™ is excited to welcome Attorney Pius Joseph to their legal community. He recently obtained a $925,000 settlement for a car accident victim.

Pius's incredible record speaks for itself. He leaves no stone unturned in his quest to recover the best possible result for each client.”

— Kimberly Busch

PASADENA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — AskTheLawyers.com™ is excited to welcome Attorney Pius Joseph of the Law Offices of Pius Joseph to their legal community. AskTheLawyers.com™ is unique among attorney listing sites in that each attorney must be thoroughly vetted and approved before earning a listing.

Pius Joseph is a third generation attorney who has represented individuals and businesses for more than 30 years. He recently obtained a $925,000 settlement for a client who was injured in an automobile accident. Mr. Joseph was not the original attorney on the case. He took the case over when the client decided that their current representation was not fulfilling their duties as agreed upon in the Attorney/Client Agreement. The client dismissed the original attorney and hired Pius Joseph.

The previous attorney had suggested that the client just needed to see a chiropractor. After a thorough evaluation of the case, Joseph saw that the client suffered from issues pertaining to a traumatic brain injury. Joseph immediately set up appointments for his client to receive a neurological evaluation. The results showed that the client needed a laminectomy to treat a spinal injury. The case was ultimately settled for $925,000–an amount far greater than what the previous attorney had estimated.

The success rate at the Law Offices of Pius Joseph exceeds 90 percent, including several multimillion-dollar judgments and settlements for injured clients. Pius practices in both state and federal courts and represents clients throughout California and the western United States.

Kimberly Busch, AskTheLawyers.com™ CEO, said she was proud to welcome Pius Joseph into the AskTheLawyers.com™ family.

"Pius's incredible record speaks for itself," Busch said. "He leaves no stone unturned in his quest to recover the best possible result for each client. The most important question when deciding whether to add someone to our site is, 'Would I choose them to be my attorney?' And with Pius Joseph, the answer is yes, no question."

To obtain a free consultation, contact Pius Joseph directly by calling 888-981-0035 or by visiting his AskTheLawyers.com™ profile.

Machine-Intelligent Technology Digitally Delivers New Level of Infrastructure Governance & Stewardship to Ensure Water Asset Resiliency

Customer connections that don't leak before rehabilitation, shouldn't leak after rehabilitation. If CCTV inspection is used, reliability of rehabilitation projects can't be assured.”

— Chuck Hansen, CEO & Founder, Electro Scan Inc.

BERLIN, GERMANY, January 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Electro Scan Inc. today announced that its CEO & Founder, Chuck Hansen, will speak at the 15th Pipeline Technology Conference (PTC) on Watertightness Testing of Cured-In-Place Pipe, March 30 – April 2, 2020 at the Estrel Congress Center, Berlin, Germany.

PTC is Europe’s leading conference on pipeline systems with more than 900 delegates expected to participate. Hansen will present his paper Wednesday, April 1, 2020, titled "Use of Low Voltage Conductivity to Conduct a 10km Inspection of Legacy Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) for a Leak Assessment Project."

A leading subject matter expert on pipeline condition assessment, Hansen is former Chair of ASTM Subcommittee F36.20 Inspection and Renewal of Water and Wastewater Infrastructure. Hansen also developed the first widely-used Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) coding system for sewer condition assessments in the U.S., used by nearly 1,000 agencies worldwide.

Prior to founding Electro Scan Inc., Hansen was CEO & Founder of Hansen Information Technologies Inc., a leading provider of sewer & water asset management and condition assessment solutions. Founded in 1983, Hansen sold the company to Infor Global in 2007 for US$100 million.

Now, an impact investor supporting measurable environmental and clean tech investments, Hansen is also an investment adviser to a leading California-based venture capital firm.

"Utilities are facing a trillion-dollar price tag to fix and upgrade critical sewer & water infrastructure, but a majority of engineers and contractors typically perform construction reviews using inherently limited visual inspection techniques to 'test' and 'accept' projects," stated Hansen.

Academics, engineers, and industry consultants have long recognized the limitation of using CCTV cameras to inspect the condition of existing, recently rehabilitated, and newly installed pipelines.

Today, sophisticated robotic cameras are still unable to tell the difference between superficial cracks and cracks that go through a pipe wall. And, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine-Learning (ML) add little to finding leaks that can't be seen due to drawbacks of visual inspection.

Given the impact of climate change and associated rising sea levels, utility managers must address the consequences related to more frequent and severe flooding, sewer overflows, and sewer back-ups due to leaking infrastructure.

Salt water infiltration now causes billions of dollars in damage to water pipeline infrastructure and costly delays in deploying badly needed wastewater reuse programs, as well as significantly impacting treatment plant performance and operational burdens in key coastal areas.

As the gap widens between 'what' utilities expect from their CAPEX investments and 'how' the market delivers CAPEX projects, the industry is calling for unbiased, unambiguous, accurate, and repeatable pipe leakage reporting to ensure resilient and sustainable improvements to infrastructure.

Technologies, like those offered by Electro Scan, play a key role in the digitization of water sector assets, connecting homes & businesses to sources of clean drinking water and the effective collection, treatment, and reuse of wastewater effluent.

Electro Scan's Focused Electrode Leak Location (FELL) technology represents a machine-intelligent, non-destructive, pipe assessment technology that uses a low-voltage, high-frequency electric current to precisely locate leaks, within 3/8th of an inch (1cm), and quantifies defect severity in gallons per minute or liters per second.

While sonar technology has been used to map underwater debris and lasers have been used to measure pipe ovality, sometimes marketed together as a 'multi-sensor' solution, neither technology has been effective in finding or quantifying leak locations or severities.

Similar to holiday testing of protective coatings, FELL is unique in its ability to test a wide variety of full length 360-degree pipe materials, whether empty or fully surcharged.
Data is transmitted to its proprietary SaaS cloud application via Amazon Web Services (AWS) with leak locations and severity data available within minutes.

Hansen has observed that many utilities and engineers are stuck in a 'subjectivity trap' using legacy inspection techniques that overly rely on biased and inherently limited technologies that visually 'see' or acoustically 'hear' leaks.

By using techniques that don't provide a complete assessment of pipes being tested, repair and rehabilitation plans may incorrectly rank and prioritize capital, resulting in ineffective use of capital resources.

Once repairs or renewals are completed, the use of the same techniques to test & accept construction and installations may result in utilities accepting pipelines with major leaks.

"Oftentimes, CIPP materials will line over bad joints and cracks," commented Hansen. "If customer connections are not properly reinstated, larger defects than were not present before rehabilitation may occur; transferring the same amount of water leakage to different locations, without lowering flow rates. With larger defects at laterals that didn't exist before, larger sources of infiltration or exfiltration can easily happen."

"Customer connections that don't leak before rehabilitation, shouldn't leak after rehabilitation," stated Hansen. "If CCTV inspection is used, reliability of rehabilitation projects can't be assured."

Electro Scan's technology was first introduced in 2006, operating in accordance as ASTM F2550, 'Standard Practice for Locating Leaks in Sewer Pipes By Measuring the Variation of Electric Current Flow Through the Pipe Wall.'

Later, ASTM Standard F2550 was reaccredited in 2013 and again in 2018.

In 2017, the company's technology was awarded Certificate No. 12 for 'Water Tightness Investigation Technology' by the Japan Sewer Collection System Maintenance Association (JASCOMA).

Later that year, Electro Scan in partnership with WRc plc, supplied leak detection testing services for a government-sponsors CIPP assessment project undertaken by the world's leading authority in pipe rehabilitation, Institut für Unterirdische Infrastruktur gGmbH (IKT), Gelsenkirchen, Germany.

As a result of its work with IKT, Electro Scan expanded its software to calculate individual quantities for pinhole leaks found in CIPP liners, now a standard feature of its SaaS-based Critical Sewers® cloud application.

In 2019, the company's technology was featured in AWWA's Manual of Water Supply Practices M77, 'Condition Assessment of Water Mains,' where it is the only recommended technology to assess CIPP pipes, in addition to other pipe materials.

International water utilities are now adopting FELL technology for testing & acceptance of trenchless rehabilitation, including CIPP, Spray-In-Place Pipe (SIPP), Spiral Wound Pipe, composite materials, and grout materials.

Test results were recently presented by BKP Berolina Polyester GmbH & Co. KG as part of their Conference Paper at the 37th International No-Dig in Florence, Italy, describing how the company's FELL technology successfully assessed the company's UV-cured CIPP. Minor defects were repaired with the client eliminating 100% of tidal infiltration.

Electro Scan company executives will be attending this year's IFAT Exposition in Messe München, Hall C3, Booth 429, May 4–8, 2020.

Leading sewer & water utilities, consulting engineers, and business partners attending IFAT can meet Michael Condran, P.E., Vice President, Electro Scan Inc., Mike App, Vice President, Electro Scan Inc., and Brad Weston, Director, Electro Scan (UK) Limited.

Held every two years, IFAT 2020 is expected to attract 150,000 attendees from 162 countries and regions. In addition to featuring its suite of machine-intelligent probes for pipe diameters ranging from 3-inch to 60-inch (176mm to 1500mm), Electro Scan staff will also be showcasing its integration with Innovyze® InfoAsset Planner® for risk modeling and rehabilitation decision support.

Hansen will also speak at the Innovyze UK and European Conference in Birmingham, England, March 4, 2020.

Legacy CCTV inspection is still useful, but not for rehabilitation selection or certifying repairs as watertight. In addition to identifying service laterals locations, CCTV is a good solution to observe obstructions, including construction debris, fats, oil, grease, and roots, and to manage ongoing cleaning activities.

CCTV's inability to locate or quantify leaks, especially in existing, newly installed, or relined pipes, especially at service lateral or junction connections, indicates that machine-intelligent FELL technology from Electro Scan is better suited to assess pipe conditions and rehabilitation effectiveness.

The e-discovery specifications project will focus on articulating the required steps to transform ESI into a format suitable for e-discovery review. The goal is to canvas legal professionals across the industry to determine what functionality is necessary to meet industry needs around the world. Anyone wishing to participate in the project should reach out to project trustee Tredennick, who is organizing the EDRM standards team, or info@edrm.net.

The project will move forward in tandem with another project concurrently initiated by the Merlin Foundation to develop an industry-standard open source processing platform. Licensed as open source, the software will be available for free. Developers and legal professionals around the world will be invited to help extend and enhance the code base, which will be continually updated to meet future industry needs.

“It is an honor for the Merlin Foundation to partner with EDRM, the leading legal standards body in the world,” says Tredennick. “E-discovery processing is a critical stage for the EDRM, bridging the gap between data collection and review.

Palm Beach attorney Reginald Giles Stambaugh successfully settles a case for heir to the Stroh Brewery fortune.

WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, USA , January 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Following a successful 12 months for the popular Palm Beach attorney, Reginald Giles Stambaugh wrapped up last year with a string of high profile legal victories, including successfully settling a case on behalf of client Whitney Stroh, an heir to the Stroh Brewery fortune. Certified by The Florida Bar for more than two decades, Stambaugh reflects on the matter, and shares details of several other prominent cases successfully handled during 2019.

"On November 14, 2019, I successfully settled a case for client Whitney Stroh, an heir to the Stroh Brewery fortune," reveals Stambaugh, speaking from his office in Palm Beach, Florida.

In addition to its own brand, Stroh Brewery produced or bought the rights to several other brands, including Augsburger, Schaefer, Erlanger, Lone Star, Old Milwaukee, and Red River, before the company was sold in 2000. "The brand is currently owned and marketed by Pabst Brewing Company in the U.S.," explains Stambaugh, "and, in Canada, by Sleeman Breweries."

Reginald Giles Stambaugh's client, Mr. Stroh, is an heir to the sizable Stroh Brewery fortune. Stambaugh himself, meanwhile, specializes in all facets of real estate law, including transactions, litigation, and estate matters, and heads up the private law practice Stambaugh Law Firm of Palm Beach County, Florida.

Elsewhere in 2019, Stambaugh successfully advocated before Palm Beach Town Council against President Donald J. Trump's Mar a Lago Club when the resort requested approval of a dock that would've violated the declaration of use agreement entered into between the town's council and the current U.S. President.

Reginald Giles Stambaugh also joined the Los Angeles litigation team for the estate of Peter Ausnit, Sr., an heir to the Ziploc storage bag and container brand fortune, to advocate against the mishandling of personal assets of his estate.

Furthermore, the attorney was again recertified as a specialist in real estate law by The Florida Bar in 2019. "I look forward," adds Stambaugh, wrapping up, "to continuing to serve clients, both new and existing alike, throughout 2020 and beyond."

Certified since 1999, Reginald Giles Stambaugh is a Florida Bar licensed real estate attorney. Attorney Stambaugh is top-rated by Martindale-Hubbell, and is scored 10.0 by the Avvo attorney directory. Reginald Giles Stambaugh studied at the Stetson University College of Law in Tampa, Florida. Ranked 1st in trial advocacy by U.S. News & World Report in its best law schools ratings, following his graduation in 1992, Stambaugh returned to his hometown of Palm Beach, Florida, where he remains happily settled almost 30 years later.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: U.S. Reps. Charlie Crist and Guy Reschenthaler Introduce Petfax Act to Protect Pets and Consumers

Most dogs sold in pet stores come from puppy mills, where the dogs are treated like a cash crop. ”

— Holly Gann, director of federal affairs at Animal Wellness Action

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, January 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today U.S. Representatives Charlie Crist (D-FL) and Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) introduced legislation in the U.S. House recognized as the “Petfax Act” to mandate honesty and transparency in the commercial sales of dogs and cats and crackdown on cruel “puppy mills”– large commercial dog breeding operations that breed high volumes of puppies to sell at pet stores and across the internet. It is the third anti-puppy mill bill introduced in this Congress – an indicator of the broad concern about the systematic mistreatment of dogs in large-scale commercial dog breeding operations.

Over 100,000 mother dogs are forced to suffer in puppy mills where they are forced to spend their entire lives in barren cages without ever touching a blade of grass. Horrific, painful injuries are commonplace and frequently go untreated. Puppies often become sick due to the unsanitary conditions of mills and long-distance transport to pet stores where they are sold to unsuspecting customers. It is not uncommon for pet stores to deny that the dogs come from puppy mills. Current laws barely meet survival standards, fail to adequately protect animals and consumers, and allow violators to continue renewing their license.

“Most dogs sold in pet stores come from puppy mills, where the dogs are treated like a cash crop,” stated Holly Gann, Director of Federal Affairs for the Animal Wellness Foundation and Animal Wellness Action, “If you buy a car, you can get a full history from Carfax; but when it comes to purchasing a puppy, sellers generally won’t provide information about where the dog came from or the dog’s medical history.”

“Welcoming a new pet into your home is a decision rooted in love. Pet owners deserve the peace of mind that their new family member wasn’t abused or mistreated by breeder or seller,” said Rep. Crist. “Requiring a Petfax increases transparency, decreasing the potential for animal abuse, a win-win for all parties involved.”

“Too many animals suffer from inhumane conditions in our nation,” said Reschenthaler. “The Petfax Act of 2020, bipartisan legislation I’m introducing with Rep. Crist, will better protect dogs and cats from neglect and abuse. By improving transparency and providing consumers with more information, including the source of their pet and its record on animal welfare inspections, we can hold irresponsible sellers of dogs and cats accountable. Given the proven ties between cruelty to animals and child and senior abuse, I will continue fighting to strengthen protections for our nation’s pets.”

The Petfax Act would:

Require that sellers of dogs and cats disclose certain information to a customer about the animals, including information identifying the dealer who bred the animals, the number of dogs bred and sold by that dealer over the past two years, a listing of any violations the dealer has had in the past two years, and health information about the animals, including whether a veterinarian was seen, vaccinations administered, and congenital disease. The Petfax Act would make it illegal for a seller, such as a pet store, to misrepresent the source of a dog or cat, including misrepresenting whether the animal came from a mill.

Require that animal welfare inspection records are reinstated on the USDA website, so that the public can look up a breeder prior to purchasing a dog to see if the breeder has violations. These records were previously available until being taken down by the USDA in 2017, eliminating transparency and allowing mills with violations to have no accountability.

Similar to another bill in Congress – the Welfare Of Our Friends (WOOF) Act – the bill closes a loophole that allows mills with violations to continue operating. The bill prohibits USDA from issuing or renewing a license to a dealer who has had a suspension within the past 10 years. It also prevents a license from being granted to the immediate family member of a dealer who has had their license suspended or revoked, to someone who resides at the same address, or to an entity where the dealer holds an ownership interest.

The Petfax Act for honesty in pet sales is the latest in local, state, and federal legislation to root out puppy mills. Two other bills have also been introduced in Congress: The WOOF Act would address loopholes to stop puppy mills with suspensions from continuing to operate, and the Puppy Protection Act would increase the standards of care for mother dogs kept in these mills. Over 300 localities across the nation have adopted legislation to prevent pet stores from selling puppies that come from puppy mills, and California and Maryland have adopted similar state legislation, with many more to follow.

Animal Wellness Action (Action) is a Washington, D.C.-based 501(c)(4) organization with a mission of helping animals by promoting legal standards forbidding cruelty.

We advocate for policies to stop dogfighting and cockfighting and other forms of malicious cruelty and to confront factory farming and other systemic forms of animal exploitation. To prevent cruelty, we promote enacting good public policies and we work to enforce those policies. To enact good laws, we must elect good lawmakers, and that’s why we remind voters which candidates care about our issues and which ones don’t. We believe helping animals helps us all.
