There have been cases where young children have been handcuffed, taken to a psychiatric facility and administered psychiatric drugs without parental consent.

To help prevent such abuse it is important that families understand their rights regarding the Baker Act. Freedom and rights must be fought for and knowledge is what gives a person the power to fight.”

— Diane Stein, President of CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Attorney Carmen Miller will be educating concerned citizens on the Baker Act, a Florida law that can result in an individual being forcibly taken to a psychiatric facility. The law even applies to children who can be taken into custody without parental consent. This important talk will be held at the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) center, 109 N Fort Harrison Ave, Clearwater, FL on August 8th from 6:30pm to 7:30pm.

Many parents are unaware that specific criteria must be followed for the Baker Act to be legally implemented. When these criteria are ignored, children and their parents suffer needlessly. There have even been cases where young children were transported to a psychiatric facility in a police car, their hands cuffed as if they were adult criminals. Even more disturbing is that in some instances, children have been forcibly given dangerous psychotropic drugs without their parents' knowledge or consent while incarcerated at these psychiatric facilities.

“To help prevent such abuse it is important that families understand their rights regarding the Baker Act,” stated Diane Stein, President of CCHR Florida. “Freedom and rights must be fought for and knowledge is what gives a person the power to fight.”

According to the Florida chapter of CCHR, a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection of children, the Baker Acting of children in Florida is a well known problem, one for which a Task Force was formed in 2017 to get to the root cause of why almost 33,000 Baker Acts were initiated on children in 2015/2016. However this notoriety has not resulted in changes to the law that would protect the rights of children and parents. For this reason, CCHR Florida holds regular events to educate families on their rights and has been working with law enforcement and school districts across the state to create uniformity in the initiation and execution of a Baker Act on a child.

There is something you can do to prevent the Baker Act from infringing on your rights or the rights of your children, other family members, your friends and your neighbors. All citizens should be armed with the basic information that will be presented on August 8th. To find out the truth about the Baker Act, and how you can protect yourself and your loved ones from its abuse or to reserve a seat at the next seminar by Carmen Miller please call 727-442-8820 or visit www.cchrflorida.org.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. It was L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, who brought the terror of psychiatric imprisonment to the notice of the world. In March 1969, he said, “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health.’”

In light of legal developments that affect estate planning, including tax and probate law changes, a web blog provides general information on these subjects.

Ehrlich Law Center (N/A:N/A)

… with the recent probate law changes, I felt that by starting a blog and sharing my knowledge and experience on these important issues, I could help families that were in need …”

— Richard Ehrlich, Estate Planning Attorney

CORAL SPRINGS, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Richard Ehrlich, the Principal Attorney at Ehrlich Law Center, has announced that he is launching a blog http://richardehrlichblog.blogspot.com/ to report and comment on legal developments in the areas of Estate Planning, Estate Administration, Probate and Small Business Planning. Mr. Ehrlich is a specialist in Corporate, Estate and Personal Financial Planning who has prepared hundreds of estate plans and helped hundreds of small businesses navigate the various issues throughout his career.

Mr. Ehrlich speaking on his thirty-two years of experience: “Most of my clients have difficult Estate issues, and I work tirelessly for the needs of my clients; I do all of this with the highest ethical standards.” Richard went on to add “Now, with the recent probate law changes, I felt that by starting a blog and sharing my knowledge and experience on these important issues, I could help families that were in need.”

For example, there have been the 2017 changes in elective shares (“An elective share is a term … relating to inheritance, which describes a proportion of an estate which the surviving spouse of the deceased may claim in place of what they were left in the decedent's will. It may also be called a Widow’s Share, Statutory Share, Election Against the Will, or Forced Share,” Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elective_share). This is quite an important matter. Previously, homestead property was specifically excluded from an elective estate. With this change, homestead property is expressly included in an elective estate (except if the surviving spouse has waived his or her homestead rights).

As another example, in May 2018, the IRS released Revenue Procedure 2018-30 that provides for dollar limitations for Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) in 2019, and, they are subject to annual contribution limits. Participants aged fifty-five (55) or older can contribute additional “catch-up” amounts. For 2019, the maximum contribution amounts will increase to $3,500 for an individual (the “catch-up” limit remains at $1,000).

Mr. Ehrlich’s practice focuses upon several primary areas which include Wills, Trusts and Probate, and Securities Arbitration. He particularly concentrates upon Probate, Wills and Living Wills, Contracts and Agreements, Estate Planning and Trusts.

Mr. Ehrlich intends to provide general information on such legal developments in writing this blog. However, such general information cannot be a substitute for individualized legal advice based on specific circumstances. Thus, for specific cases, one should still seek legal advice from an attorney.

“Whether you can be an employee or entrepreneur no matter what line of work you are in in you will be one day be asked to sign a contract,” says Myrna. “Without question it’s absolutely relevant to understand contracts and accounting. Read everything before you sign it because it’s vital to keep excellent records for your own benefit.”

Since her early youth, Myrna displayed a remarkable aptitude for learning and was only fourteen years old when she got her first job as a bookkeeper. Her innate sense of work ethic has prudently guided her throughout her notable, illustrious career.

“People should always be mindful of all aspects of their work,” says Myrna. “The most practical approach is by taking business courses to keep you well versed and knowledgeable on every facet of the work you do.

Ohio Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Urges a US Navy Veteran with Mesothelioma or Their Family to Call for Direct Access to the Nation's Top Attorneys Who Overachieve on Client Compensation Results

A mesothelioma compensation claim for a US Navy Veteran with this rare cancer could start at about a million dollars”

— Ohio Mesothelioma Victims Center

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Ohio Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "If you are a US Navy Veteran who has been recently diagnosed with mesothelioma in Ohio, or this your immediate family member, please call us anytime at 800-714-0303. We want to prevent you from hiring an inexperienced lawyer/law firm. If you want the very best mesothelioma financial compensation we offer direct access to some of the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys who exclusively handle mesothelioma compensation claims on a full-time basis-nationwide.

"The remarkable legal specialists we suggest also consistently overachieve when it client compensation results. A mesothelioma compensation claim for a US Navy Veteran with this rare cancer could start at about a million dollars-especially if as a sailor they were exposed to asbestos in a navy ship's engine room, machine-repair shops or while the ship was undergoing repairs at a shipyard as we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303." http://Ohio.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The mesothelioma attorneys suggested by the group work on Navy Veteran mesothelioma compensation claims nationwide, and they have an extremely thorough understanding of navy ship engine rooms, most places on a navy ship where a sailor could have been exposed to asbestos, as well as the specific manufacturers of pipe insulation, pumps, gaskets, and more. They also can name every single US Navy shipyard because these are the types places where a US Navy Veteran could have had super exposure to asbestos. Before a Navy Veteran with mesothelioma retains the services of a lawyer-law firm to assist with a mesothelioma compensation claim they are urged to call the group anytime at 800-714-0303. http://Ohio.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Mesothelioma Victims Center has experience helping US Navy Veterans who were exposed to asbestos on the following types of US Navy ships:

* Destroyers
* Air Craft Carriers (Essex & Nimitz Class)
* Cruisers
* Fast Attack Submarines (Los Angeles Class)
* Ohio Class Submarines
* Amphibious Assault Ships
* Oilers and Cargo Ships
* Navy Tugs/Support Vessels

For a listing of all former and current US Navy ships, please refer to the US Navy's website that addresses these topics. http://www.navy.mil/navydata/our_ships.asp.

The Ohio Mesothelioma Victims Center wants to emphasize there is a statewide initiative available to a diagnosed victim anywhere in Ohio including communities such as Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Toledo, Akron, Dayton, or Youngstown.

Aside from their focus on the best possible compensation the Center is also extremely passionate about the best possible medical treatments. For the best possible mesothelioma treatment options in Ohio the Ohio Mesothelioma Victims Center strongly recommends the following three heath care facilities with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at each hospital: Case Western Reserve University Cancer Research Center Cleveland, Ohio: http://cancer.case.edu/ , Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center Columbus, Ohio: http://cancer.osu.edu/, the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Institute Cleveland, Ohio: http://my.clevelandclinic.org/services/cancer

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Ohio include Veterans of the US Navy, power plant workers, factory workers, plumbers, electricians, auto or tire factory workers, coal miners, auto mechanics, machinists, and construction workers. Typically, exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s. http://Ohio.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon.

Recent opinion of the Court of Appeal in a will contest shows how protracted estate disputes can become. Careful estate planning can prevent many such issues.

Ehrlich Law Center (N/A:N/A)

… this case is a stark reminder to carefully plan one’s estate to prevent, as much as humanly and legally possible, subsequent disputes …”

— Richard Ehrlich, Estate Planning attorney in Florida

CORAL SPRINGS, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Richard Ehrlich, a highly respected Estate Planning attorney in Florida, commented on the recent decision of the District Court of Appeal of Florida, Fourth District, in a legal dispute over a gentleman’s estate.

Comments Mr. Ehrlich, “this case is a stark reminder to carefully plan one’s estate to prevent, as much as humanly and legally possible, subsequent disputes.”

In that case, Jack Mulvey ("Decedent") died in 2011 with two surviving children and a spouse (his second wife). He had executed a will in 2005, and a superseding will in 2010 that gave most of the assets to his second wife, Thelma Mulvey (“Widow”). The Decedent's daughter, Sheila Stephens ("Daughter"), sued the Widow. The Daughter claimed the Widow exerted undue influence on the frail Decedent and interfered with her expected inheritance. When the Decedent died, the Daughter petitioned the probate court for administration of the 2005 will, while seeking invalidation of the 2010 will. She argued the 2010 will was the product of the Widow's undue influence on the Decedent, and she alleged that the Decedent lacked testamentary capacity when he executed the 2010 will. The Daughter did not give up and filed a complaint in the circuit court for tortious interference with expectancy. After a trial, the probate court found the 2010 will was valid and not the product of undue influence. The Daughter then filed a complaint in the circuit court for tortious interference with expectancy. The jury found in favor of the Daughter and awarded her $60,000 in damages. The Widow appealed, and the Appeals court reversed. The end result of the case, seven years after the Decedent’s death and after four legal proceedings, is the same as intended by the 2010 will.

Says Mr. Ehrlich, “as this prolonged dispute shows, estate matters can be complicated even when there is a written will. But avoidance of protracted legal proceedings and intra-family strife requires careful planning. In fact, estate planning involves several important considerations, including tax consequences and whether certain assets should be transferred before death.”

Among the important considerations are “protecting beneficiaries” by giving the assets in the form of a trust that cannot be easily depleted, or giving consideration to special beneficiaries. As in this case, “blended families” (one or both spouses have families from prior marriages) pose special challenges.

Estate Planning requires competent legal advice based on the specific circumstances. Such matters should be reviewed with a competent Estate Planning attorney.

Philadelphia Trucking Company Down $150,000 After Driver Carelessly Strikes Vehicle

Attorney Alvin de Levie in the Courtroom

The victim deserves justice after his life had been turned upside down without warning.”

— Alvin F de Levie, Esq.

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, July 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — +

On July 10, at approximately 4:20 pm, an innocent vehicle was hit while driving in the vicinity of Route 70 and Hampton Road in Borough of Merchantville Township of Cherry Hill, NJ. The victim was rear-ended at high speeds by the driver of a Philadelphia-based trucking company while making a delivery.

Seasoned personal injury attorney, Alvin de Levie, worked hard to receive justice for the victim of this motor vehicle accident, as he has done successfully for many others throughout his 40 practicing years. The victim sustained multiple injuries at the time of the crash, which has caused disruptions and monetary losses in his everyday life.

“I worked hard to achieve justice for my client,” de Levie said, “The victim deserves justice after his life had been turned upside down without warning.”

The victim suffered injuries including a ruptured eardrum, tinnitus, asymmetrical sensorineural hearing loss, and noise-induced hearing loss. Some of these injuries may have a permanent effect on the victim.

The above multiple injuries have caused the victim to pay sums of money for medical attention and treatment. They have also prevented him from performing everyday tasks.

De Levie is always happy to help fight for his clients, so they receive the compensation they deserve for their pain and suffering.

The careless driver of the trucking company was driving at excessively high speeds at the time of the accident and failed to warn the victim of his inability to stop his vehicle. He was not maintaining a safe distance between his truck and the Plaintiff’s car, which caused the crash.

The negligence and carelessness of the employee of the Philadelphia-based trucking company caused this crash and disrupted an innocent person’s life.

De Levie said, “They need to take responsibility for their actions.”

The case settled for the sum of $150,000 due to the dedication and hard work of de Levie and his staff. The Philadelphia trucking company’s employee’s inadequate ability to control his vehicle has caused detrimental effects on another’s life and deserved to face the consequences.

Alvin F. de Levie is one of Pennsylvania’s premier catastrophic personal injury attorneys. With over 40 years experience, de Levie advocates for victims’ rights above all.
