In real estate acquisitions, buyers sometimes buy the property with an existing tenant. Attorney Frank Lauletta discusses a recent appellate case in this regard

Lauletta Birnbaum LLC (N/A:N/A)

In this case, the buyer failed to include a provision that it was buying the accounts receivable and paying consideration therefor.”

— Frank A. Lauletta, Attorney at Lauletta Birnbaum

SEWELL, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, April 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Business Attorney Frank A. Lauletta published a comment of interest to real estate investors acquiring property with existing tenants. While this is an Illinois case, the issue could have implications in other states as well. In 1002 E. 87th Street, LLC v. Midway Broadcasting Corp, a decision from the Appellate Court of Illinois, the Court ruled on whether unpaid rent that accrued prior to the purchase by a new landlord can be collected by the new landlord afterwards. The Midway Court answered in the negative, holding that the new landlord had no standing to sue for rent that accrued before the purchase. The comment will be published in full on the Blog of Mr. Lauletta at https://franklaulettablog.blogspot.com/

As the Court put it, “[t]he facts are relatively simple. Midway operated a radio station at 1002 E. 87th Street, Chicago, leasing the space from Jeff BV Commercial, LLC (Jeff BV). Melody Spann Cooper and Pierre Cooper signed the lease as guarantors. Jeff BV sold the property to Glass Management Services, Inc., which then sold it to 1002 E. 87th Street, LLC. The lease provides that Midway will pay rent ‘without abatement, demand, deduction or offset whatsoever.’ The lease also indicates that the landlord ‘shall include the party named as such in the first paragraph thereof, its representatives, assigns and successors in title to the Premises.’ When an original owner conveys the property, the ‘[t]enant agrees to attorn to such new owner.’ This section further specifies that, when the original landlord conveys the property, all liabilities and obligations ‘accrued thereafter are terminated’ and all liabilities and obligations of the original landlord ‘shall be binding upon the new owner.’”

After the sale of the property to the new landlord, the tenants sent the monthly rent to the new landlord. The new landlord rejected the rent and demanded all the back owed rent that accrued prior to the purchase. The trial court granted the tenant’s motion to dismiss for lack of standing and granted it attorney’s fees. The landlord appealed.
The appellate court noted the respective parties’ arguments. “87th Street contends the lease established its standing. 87th Street claims the lease entitles it to demand strict compliance with the past due rent provision. 87th Street also claims rent accrual is a chose in action and, thus, freely assignable. Midway counters that 87th Street only has standing to sue for rent that comes due after it became the landlord, and not for past due rent that accrued before then. Additionally, Midway counters that rent in arrears is a chose in action that is not assignable to a new property owner.”

The Court explained that “[i]n general, a landlord has standing to sue for unpaid rent. If a landlord conveys property by warranty deed without reserving any rights, he or she also conveys the leases for the property, as well as the right to receive unaccrued rent. If a tenant fails to pay rent that becomes due, the new landlord has standing to sue for it. But the new landlord does not have a right to recover rent due from before it owned the property. The original landlord retains any right to recover past due rent.” (internal citations omitted).

Midway Court noted that “87th Street contends that it has standing to sue under the provision in the lease providing, ‘[n]o failure of landlord to exercise any power *** or to insist upon strict compliance *** and no custom or practice of the parties *** shall constitute a waiver of Landlord’s right to demand exact compliance with the terms.’ 87th Street believes that, as landlord, it can enforce the lease through this nonwaiver clause, regardless of Jeff BV’s action or inaction. 87th Street also asserts that Jeff BV’s inaction does not prevent 87th Street from demanding exact compliance with the lease.” The Court held, however, that “a demand for exact compliance with the lease does not include a nonexistent right to collect rent due before it owned the property. 87th Street cites no cases, and we have found none, stating that a new owner can use a nonwaiver clause to enforce a tenant’s obligations to a previous owner.”
The case highlights the need for prospective real estate buyers to ensure that they understand the implications of the contractual provisions as well as potential tenant rights and claims and to ensure that the contract addresses the desired outcomes. In this case the buyer failed to include a provision that it was buying the accounts receivable (i.e., past due rent) and paying consideration therefor. Furthermore, the buyer was not aware of preexisting tenant claims since it failed to require a tenant estoppel letter prior to closing requiring the tenant to explain any claims or defenses it had or be “estopped” from claiming them later.

The case is 1002 E. 87th Street, LLC v. Midway Broadcasting Corp., Docket No. 1-17-1691, available at http://www.illinoiscourts.gov/Opinions/AppellateCourt/2018/1stDistrict/1171691.pdf

Why It Is Important To Have A Written Retainer With Your Lawyer? Richard A. Kranitz, Esq. explains

A new article by business attorney & coach Richard A. Kranitz explains the importance of having a written retainer agreement with your lawyer.

Office of Richard A. Kranitz (N/A:N/A)

A written retainer ensures that all the terms of the agreement are clear, like the purpose you are hiring the lawyer for, and how you will be charged for the services”

— Richard A. Kranitz, business attorney

GRAFTON, WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES, April 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Whether you are facing a lawsuit in the court, going through a divorce, starting a new business or partnering with someone, writing a will, or buying a new property; anything that involves preparing legal documents or defending yourself in the court requires you to hire a lawyer. Hiring an attorney ensures that you do not fall prey to any scam, do something wrong or illegal, and your interests are best represented. Hiring a lawyer, however, is a little different from hiring any other service provider. In many cases, clients are asked to pay retainer fee by the lawyers before they start working with them.

Business Attorney Richard A. Kranitz explains in a newly published article. The full article will be published on the Blog of Mr. Kranitz at https://richardkranitzblog.blogspot.com/

What Is a Retainer Fee?

A retainer fee, or simply retainer, is the amount of money paid in advance to lawyers by their clients (people who need legal help from them). Lawyers usually ask for a retainer to be paid before they start working with a client to ensure that the person is serious about hiring them and would not disappear once the lawyer starts working on that particular case. On the other hand, it also assures the client that the lawyer would not withdraw from a case, while it is in process. In simple words, it is an agreement that ensures commitment from both the client and the lawyer for the specific period of the case.

Retainers are usually non-refundable, which means you cannot ask the lawyer to pay back your money even if you lose a case or decide to hire a different lawyer after some time. While some freelance professionals have now started asking for retainers, the concept is only prevalent in the legal system.

Why You Should Sign a Written Retainer Agreement With Your Lawyer

As mentioned earlier, the retainer is basically an agreement between a client and their lawyer. Both parties agree to work with each other and accept each other’s conditions or requirements. Many people do not deem it necessary to have written contracts with their lawyers because the decision to hire a lawyer itself is an indication of the person’s trust. But, just like any other contract, it is only wise to have the retainer agreement in the written form.

Signing a legal agreement with the person you are hiring to get legal help – perplexing, right? Here are a few reasons why it is important:

* To Set Clear Terms of Agreements
Just because you are working with a lawyer doesn’t mean there cannot be any disagreement, confusion, misunderstanding, or disputes. A written retainer ensures that all the terms of the agreement, like the purpose you are hiring the lawyer for, the amount of money you are required to pay, how you will be charged for the services, and what services the lawyer will provide, are clear, understood and agreed upon by both the parties. Verbal agreements are unreliable and have no legal value. You cannot hold someone accountable for violating the terms of an agreement unless you have a written legal document as proof. Signing a written retainer agreement with your lawyer helps to avoid all these problems.

* To Prevent Violation
Verbal or non-written retainer agreements can be violated in many ways. Some of the possible scenarios that can arise are:
* In most cases, a lawyer is bound to place the retainer fee in a separate account and cannot withdraw it at once. Failure of the lawyer to comply with this condition is considered a violation of the retainer agreement, but you may not be able to do anything about it in the absence of a written agreement.
* Using the money that is reserved for legal tasks throughout the case for personal purposes by the lawyer is also a violation of the contract.

* Problems or disagreements over the amount or terms of payment.
A written retainer agreement empowers both the lawyer and the client to hold each other accountable for any violation. For example, if the client suffers from a loss due to the misuse of retainer fee by the lawyer, having a written agreement will ensure that the lawyer will be subjected to pay a damages award to the client.

No matter what you are hiring an attorney for, make sure to sign a written retainer agreement, advises Richard Kranitz.

Jack and Jill, Why They Kill

Janie Got Her Gun! At 18, She Couldn't Buy a Beer in Denver, But Her Tender Age Was Okay For Buying the Shotgun She Fatally Turned On Herself!

Selling a shotgun to Sol Pais, 18, was that Denver clerk's mortal sin. Sol Pais should have been advised of the FBI's 2-week wait. Why sell her a shotgun at 18, yet she could not buy a beer until 21?”

— James E. Shaw, Ph.D.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, April 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Janie Got Her Gun! Florida Teen Flies To Colorado, Infatuated by the Columbine High School Shootings of 1999, Buys a Shotgun and Fatally Shoots Herself

Dr.James E. Shaw, author of the landmark, media-heralded book, Jack and Jill, Why They Kill: Saving Our Children, Saving Ourselves, says he was stunned to hear of the tragic death of 18-year old Sol Pais, "Who wasn't even born when the unspeakably horrid Columbine shootings occurred in 1999." Shaw was one of the invited keynote speakers at the first Columbine High School commemorative ceremony, in 2000. He says, "School leaders and the communities they serve have, with the nonstop support of law enforcement, made tremendous school safety advances all across the country…and all the time." Shaw shakes his head, frowns and asks, "How is it that enlightenment about selling guns to children has not fully occurred? The Florida teenager, Sol Pais, wasn't even the legal age of 21 for buying beer in Colorado, yet she was able to easily buy a shotgun and ammunition within minutes of her plane's landing in Denver."

"Jack and Jill, Why They Kill," Shaw's book, has been hailed, on CNN, as the "smart answer for today's troubled times." Shaw spent four years inside state youth prisons, interviewing girls and boys incarcerated for having committed murder and homicide. His pioneering in-person research broke ground in an area that school leaders were only then beginning to understand. "Going to school can be hazardous to children's health," Shaw says. He praises the Jefferson County school superintendent for "his sharp instincts that drove the closing of every school in the district and locking out potential student threatners." Shaw adds: "Dr. Jason Glass stopped Jeffco's school yards from being turned–by a gun-wielding, depressed, disoriented, and disillusioned child–into grave yards."

"Jack and Jill, Why They Kill" is the outgrowth of Shaw's research inside state youth prisons that earned him a Ph.D. degree from the Claremont Graduate University, as well as Phi Delta Kappa's "Best Dissertation of the Year" award. Shaw says he is grateful to media organizations for "their constant invitations to me to be a guest expert in TV and radio on-air discussions about school safety, campus threatners, bullying, and the constant need to work cooperatively and collaboratively with local law enforcement to ensure maximum safety for everyone in the school community." Shaw says that Sol Pais "utter failure in the execution" of her purported plans to arrive at Columbine High School with her newly-purchased and loaded shotgun, "Spared the lives of others she might have encountered."

In addition to being on the Panel of Experts of the Los Angeles Superior Court, since 2003, Shaw continues to research and write, and occasionally teaches in the doctoral programs of professional schools of Psychology, such as the Chicago School of Professional Psychology and the California Southern University School of Behavioral Sciences. He is also a public speaker represented by the Jodi Solomon Speakers Bureau, Boston, MA. "Jack and Jill, Why They Kill" is available at Amazon.com, and is used in colleges and universities and police academies nationwide.

The update to the California Equal Pay Act is of importance to the hospitality industry, explains business consultant Cyrus L. Batchan

Cyrus Batchan Business Consulting (N/A:N/A)

With continued focus on pay equality, entrepreneurs will have to ensure their pay structure and hiring practices comply with relevant state and federal requirements”

— Cyrus Leon Batchan, Business Consultant in Sherman Oaks

SHERMAN OAKS, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a new article, hospitality consultant Cyrus L. Batchan discusses California requirements for equal pay and other salary issues. The complete article will be available on Mr. Batchan’s blog at https://cyrusbatchan.blogspot.com/

The California Equal Pay Act has been in force since 1949, prohibiting employers from paying employees who perform the same work different wages based on the employee’s gender. Despite the law, however, female workers’ wages continue to stagnate behind their male co-workers, estimated at 80% of the male co-workers’ wages. As such, California legislature has continued to pass legislative initiatives and updates aimed at remedying this disparity.

One law aimed at addressing wage disparity is the prohibition against employers asking applicants about their salary history. Furthermore, the law also prohibits employers from using salary history in making hiring decisions. It does not, however, restrict employees from volunteering their salary history without prompting from the employer and the employer considering such history in setting the employee’s salary once volunteered. Still, such history cannot be the sole factor in disparity between male and female co-workers.

One of the provisions of the California Equal Pay Act received further clarification with a recent legislative update. The law required employers to provide a pay scale for the position sought to an applicant upon reasonable request. Previously, the key terms such as “applicant” and “reasonable request” were undefined by the statute. A recent update has provided definition for these terms. “Applicant” is defined as “an individual who is seeking employment with the employer and is not currently employed with that employer in any capacity or position.” “Reasonable request” is defined as a “request made after an applicant has completed an initial interview with the employer.”

There are certain acceptable reasons for disparity in pay. For example, employers may pay similarly situated employees differently based on seniority or merit system. Different pay may also be justified on quantity or quality of work. There is also the broad catch-all of a “bona fide factor other than sex, race, or ethnicity.” Employer relying on such bona fide factor would have to show some reasonable basis for disparity in pay based on business necessity. Also, employers may not prohibit employees from discussing their salary amongst themselves.

With continued focus on pay equality, entrepreneurs will have to ensure their pay structure and hiring practices comply with relevant state and federal requirements, notes Cyrus Batchan.

Currently, he is involved in the hospitality businesses Lock & Key, Nightshade, Skylight Nha Trang, and East-West Brewery (as Advisor).

Initially, he managed an investment fund developing real estates all throughout the greater Los Angeles Area. In 2013, he opened Lock & Key, an upscale lounge, in Los Angeles. Most recently, he has been involved in Nightshade, the first restaurant for Top Chef winner Mei Lin along with partner Francis Miranda of N°8. The expansive space, which goes into the former Cerveteca, will feature a pan-Asian menu infused with modern touches and California sensibilities, with Lin herself calling the experience “fine food in a casual setting.” Think fine dining touches and plating with flavor influences from Italy, Japan, and China.

A recent Virginia case reviewed whether employers have a duty to warn employees about exposing their family members to asbestos carried home from the workplace.

The Avery Law Firm (N/A:N/A)

The Virginia Supreme Court concluded that the defendant did owe a duty of care to the plaintiff and recognized take-home duty in Virginia.”

— Michael Leon Avery, Sr., attorney in Fairfax, Virginia

FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, April 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Recently, the Virginia Supreme Court reviewed whether employers have a duty to exercise reasonable care to warn employees against exposing their family members to asbestos carried home from the workplace. Attorney Michael Avery, provides his review of this case in a new article that is available on his blog, https://michaelaveryesq.law.blog

Quisenberry case was a result of a certification of question from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia for the following question: "Does an employer owe a duty of care to the family member of an employee who alleges exposure to asbestos from the work clothes of the employee, where such exposure takes place off of the employer’s premises and the employer has no relationship with the family member?"

Virginia Supreme Court restated the question as follows: "Does an employer owe a duty of care to an employee’s family member who alleges exposure to asbestos from the work clothes of an employee, where the family member alleges the employer’s negligence allowed asbestos fibers to be regularly transported away from the place of employment to the employee’s home?"

The case stems from the death of Wanda Quisenberry, who passed away in 2016, three years after being diagnosed with “malignant pleural mesothelioma, caused by exposure to asbestos dust and fibers.” The estate alleged that the exposure occurred from Ms. Quisenberry’s father, who worked at what is now the defendant decades ago and during his work, Mr. Quisenberry carried home the asbestos dust and fibers on his work clothes, which led to the exposure.

Upon removal to federal court, the defendant sought to dismiss the case based on the argument that the plaintiff was relying on “take home” exposure liability, which had not been recognized by the Virginia Supreme Court. Eventually, the district court certified the question to the Virginia Supreme Court.

Virginia Supreme Court began its analysis with the general rule that duty to exercise due care to avoid injuring others “is owed “to those within reach of a defendant’s conduct.” (internal quotation omitted). The court went on to explain that while no such duty exists if there is no relationship, “the existence of a duty does not depend on proving a particular relationship, but arises from that basic and necessary regulation of civilization which forbids any person because of his own convenience, to recklessly, heedlessly or carelessly injure another.” (internal quotation and alteration omitted). Put another way, “[t]he only ‘relationship’ which must exist [for a duty to arise] is a sufficient juxtaposition of the parties in time and space to place the plaintiff in danger from the defendant’s acts.”

“Thus, that harm in the present case occurred at a location removed from the employer’s business and after hours is a distinction without a difference. The artificial hazard created by the Shipyard – asbestos dust – was allegedly released through the Shipyard’s course of conduct and moved to place Wanda in danger. The nature of the hazard allegedly created by the Shipyard’s conduct was that asbestos fibers, the inhalation of which could cause mesothelioma, regularly accumulated on the clothes of workers during the day and were released again when those workers returned home and had their clothes washed, thus placing Wanda and others similarly situated within reach of the Shipyard’s conduct and within the ‘zone of danger.’ This created a ‘recognizable risk of harm’ to those sharing living quarters with the workers, resulting in a duty of ordinary care to that class of persons.” Therefore, the court concluded that the defendant did owe a duty of care to the plaintiff and recognized take-home duty in Virginia. The case is Quisenberry v. Huntington Ingalls Inc., Record No. 171494.

7 Tips On Filing A Defense Base Act Claim That You Need To Know

attorneys.

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, April 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — You might recall the old joke, where a tourist in New York City stops a pedestrian on the street and asks, “How do I get to Carnegie Hall?” The pedestrian ruefully replies, “Practice, practice, practice.”

The joke is still a good one after all these years, and it brings to mind a similar sentiment with regard to the Defense Base Act. Namely, how do you make a claim under the Defense Base Act? Process, process, process.

Overseas Contractors for the U.S. Military – The Defense Base Act Is Your Workers’ Compensation Plan

Private contractors and other non-military workers employed overseas by the United States government should be aware of the Defense Base Act, which is an extension of the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act. Non-military personnel who do contract work for the military (most often in overseas military bases) have their workers’ compensation benefits administered by the Defense Base Act.

Therefore, if you are a civilian working for the U.S. military overseas and have been injured or a loved one has been killed, in a work-related incident, you need to turn to the Defense Base Act for compensation. To get that compensation you need to know a little about the claims process.

This article will give you 7 important tips to keep in mind whenever filing a Defense Base Act claim. However, it is highly recommended that you get the help of an experienced Defense Base Act lawyer to assist you. The “process, process, process” of a Defense Base Act claim could be tricky, and there are many potential pitfalls.

At Doolittle & Tucker, we are dedicated to helping people understand and avoid the pitfalls that come with any Defense Base Act claim. Our experienced Defense Base Act attorneys will make sure that you receive the workers’ compensation benefits to which you are entitled after a workplace accident.

Our attorneys are truly the best in Florida when it comes to Defense Base Act representation. We can do the work while you focus on the most important thing – healing. To learn more about our expertise on filing Defense Base Act claims after reading this article, call us at 904.396.1734. We will worry about your Defense Base Act claim, so you don’t have to.

Process, Process, Process

Before getting to the helpful tips, there are some basics you need to know about filing a Defense Base Act Claim. First, after an injury, or after a loved one is killed in a workplace incident, you need to inform the relevant supervisor of the accident as soon as possible.

Second, the injured person must provide notice to the employer, in writing, within 30 days of the accident. That written report will trigger the employer to provide medical treatment.

Finally, the injured person, or the family of a person killed in an incident, must file a so-called LS-203 form. This form is the Department of Labor’s claim form for compensation. On that form, you are able to give the details of your injury. The form should be filed with the Department of Labor’s Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs, and it should be filed within one year of the accident.

7 Tips For Filing a Defense Base Act Claim

In the “zone of danger,” you can still receive Defense Base Act compensation even if you were not actually working at the time you were injured. Unlike other workers’ compensation plans, the Defense Base Act does not necessarily require that a person is working at the time of the injury in order to receive benefits. The Act acknowledges that civilians on military bases, particularly in war zones like Iraq and Afghanistan, are in constant danger. Accordingly, you are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits even if you were injured during off-duty hours.

Inform your supervisor immediately, and get it in writing. Immediately after an injury, you should notify your supervisor. Yet, also be sure to send an email to your supervisor. That is helpful because, later on, you will likely need proof as to whether, and when, you notified your employer.

Keep track of all of your income, including bonuses. The compensation you receive through the Defense Base Act is calculated based upon your pre-injury wages. If you fail to report all of the income you earned on the job, then you are short-changing yourself of the compensation you deserve. Accordingly, keep track of all income, from any source, like bonuses.

Go to the doctor you choose, not the insurance company’s doctor. Upon filing a claim, the insurance company will likely recommend a physician. While that is helpful on the insurance company’s part, the Defense Base Act allows you to use your own physician. So, go to the best doctor you can find close to where you live.

Be diligent in gathering evidence to support your claim. The better you can support what happened in the incident, and the extent of your injuries, the better your compensation will be. With that in mind, do not forget to make a list of witnesses to the accident, with their contact information. Be sure to keep a diary of all the medical treatment you receive overseas. Also, try to get all medical records (including x-rays, MRI images, etc.) from all overseas medical providers.

Be honest about your injury. Do not take the risk that your claim will be denied by exaggerating your injury to your doctor or to the insurance company. Having a pre-existing condition prior to the injury does not mean that you will not get compensation. Under the Defense Base Act, insurance will still cover injuries that worsen a previous injury.
Finally, get a lawyer. The best thing you can do to file an effective Defense Base Act claim is to contact a seasoned Defense Base Act attorney.

Doolittle & Tucker should be your go-to Defense Base Act attorneys. In Florida, we are the Defense Base Act experts, and our representation is no cost to you unless we obtain compensation for you. So, call for a free case review with one of our attorneys who specialize in Defense Base Act cases. You can contact us today by calling 904.396.1734.

Does not hiring a lawyer deal with agreements? If you think a lawyer writing up an agreement is totally free and also without fears as well as obligations, you're wrong.

Just assume you decided to market your residence on your very own and you did locate somebody who is interested and is currently all set to get your residence. You are possibly not aware of every one of your legal rights when it comes to working out as well as finalizing the deal. A top realtor knows all the called for documents that you will require to ensure your sale goes efficiently. For instance, do not forget all the disclosures that are needed to be authorized as well as all the lawfully binding contracts that the parties need to have for an arrangement. https://best-5-star-real-estate-agents-in-america.com/agents/Chad-Odom-Real-Estate-Agent-Little-Elm-TX-4.php

Thinking of selling your house on your own, without the assistance and also expert recommendations of a certified realtor? You might want to re-consider your thought to do this, due to the fact that possibilities are great that you will not increase your bottom line by marketing your own residence. Do you possibly believe your cost savings on fees will be your benefit after you go to a workshop on marketing your own residence?

A home sale is a complicated series of deals with several participants. Not just is it time-consuming, assessment and coordination with experts at every level is needed. Attendance at a workshop does not make you a professional on house selling. Average individuals will purchase only two to three houses in a lifetime, unless they are home investors. A top producing real estate agent will average 5-10 purchases monthly. A real estate broker with expertise and experience in the profession will have the ability to enhance your profit on a home sale.

Real estate is a challenging business, particularly when you are purchasing. Buying a residential property is an essential choice, so when trying to find a top realtor, you must be extremely mindful regarding whom you will be employing. Examine the testimonials for your real estate agent. Find a person with great testimonials, as well as do your own research study in advance. https://best-5-star-real-estate-agents-in-america.com/agents/Chad-Odom-Real-Estate-Agent-Little-Elm-TX-5.php

Immigration Court in Miami, Florida, grants release upon bond for Mexican citizen who had several traffic offenses and one drug paraphernalia conviction

Cuprys & Associates (N/A:N/A)

we are glad that the Immigration Court agreed with our arguments that C.S.M. should be released on bond.”

— Magdalena Cuprys, Immigration Lawyer in Florida

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, April 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Miami immigration law firm of Cuprys & Associates announced that principal immigration attorney Magdalena Cuprys successfully accomplished the release of a Mexican citizen on bond.

This was a complicated case because the Client, C.S.M., had a few run-ins with the law. He was arrested in 2004 for possession of drug paraphernalia, pled guilty, but the Court withheld adjudication and he was put in a Probation/Community Supervision program. He also had several traffic offenses on the record, including DUI, the most recent arrest in 2018, when he drove a car with illegally tinted windows and a suspended driver’s license.

In July 2018, a warrant was issued for his arrest so that he can be put into removal (deportation) proceedings, and it was executed in December 2018.

Ms. Cuprys successfully argued that C.S.M. should be released on bond even though he did not have strong family ties in the community. It is within the discretion of the Attorney General to release on bond a detained foreign citizen who is not subject to mandatory detention. The factors for setting an immigration bond include stable employment history, length of residence in the community, family ties, any record of non-appearance in immigration proceedings, and previous criminal or immigration law violations.

After hearing from Ms. Cuprys, the Immigration Court in Miami, Florida, granted C.S.M.’s release on bond. Ms. Cuprys commented that “we are glad that the Immigration Court agreed with our arguments that C.S.M. should be released on bond. While some of C.S.M.’s personal choices may not have been the best, it is clear from the record that he has a job in construction job and is sufficiently integrated in the Community to work through these issues.”

The underlying case is “C.S.M., #A215755___.”

Injured Garbage Truck Driver Hired as Paralegal by Reck Law, PLLC, a Law Firm that Represents WA State Injured Workers

Tara Reck - Washington State Workers Compensation Attorney

Tara Reck – Washington State Workers Compensation Attorney

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, April 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Contact: Tara Reck, Managing Attorney at Reck Law – Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
Seattle office: (206) 395-6141 Port Orchard headquarters: (360) 876-4123
https://recklaw.com | https://tarareck.com | office@recklaw.com

SEATTLE & PORT ORCHARD, WASHINGTON, Apr. 12 2019 – Reck Law, PLLC is pleased to announce it hired injured worker, Robert Biddix, to join their team. After completing retraining through his workers’ compensation claim at Tacoma Community College, Mr. Biddix graduated from the paralegal program with exemplary grades. Mr. Biddix had a nearly 20 year career as a garbage truck driver prior to his work injury in 2011. With the help of the Washington State Workers’ Compensation system, Mr. Biddix successfully received treatment for his injuries, completed retraining for a new career that accommodates his permanent physical limitations, and returned to full-time employment.

Over the course of his career, Mr. Biddix worked for several employers in waste management as a garbage truck driver. In 2011, while on his route in Poulsbo performing daily work duties for Waste Management, Inc., he severely injured his back. His colleagues finished his route, while he went to see a doctor who opened a workers’ compensation claim on his behalf. Shortly after, he performed light duty work and returned to full-time regular duty, resulting in worsening of his injury.

Washington State employers are obligated to carry industrial insurance, under a system that benefits both employees and employers when work injuries occur. Employers can subscribe to the state-funded program administered by the Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) or maintain their own insurance if they are certified to be Self-Insured. Either way, the treatment of injured workers is governed by the Washington State Industrial Insurance Act, RCW Title 51.

Despite insurance coverage, claims do not always proceed as smoothly as they should. “After going back to light duty work, I tried to get an MRI. The insurance company refused it. To make things worse, they sent me to an IME and I received a letter from my claim manager wanting to close my claim. I realized something wasn’t right and hired an attorney that handles Workers’ Compensation cases” said Mr. Biddix. His MRI was approved quickly after the attorney got involved.

Under his claim, Mr. Biddix attended physical therapy and underwent two back surgeries to get to Maximum Medical Improvement, meaning the point where his injury would not improve any further. While his treatment was considered successful, he was left with permanent physical limitations that preclude him from ever returning to work in physically demanding jobs. The vocational expert assigned to Mr. Biddix’s claim determined that for him to return to work, he should be retrained. After exploring his options, Mr. Biddix decided he wanted to obtain an Associates Degree so that he could return to work helping injured workers just like him.

If approved for retraining, injured workers in Washington State can select Option 1 or Option 2. Mr. Biddix chose Option 1, which means he received time-loss compensation and tuition coverage while he attended the Paralegal Program at Tacoma Community College. Near the completion of his college retraining program, he was offered internship at Reck Law, PLLC, a law firm that represents injured workers. Upon the successful completion of his program, Mr. Biddix was extended an offer of full-time employment. On April 1, 2019 he began working as a salaried member of the Reck Law, PLLC legal team.

“It is a privilege to bring Mr. Biddix onboard. As a Workers’ Compensation law firm entirely dedicated to representing injured workers in Washington State, we adhere to our principles and we practice what we preach, which is to help injured workers” said Ms. Tara Reck, managing attorney at Reck Law, PLLC. She added: “We are lucky to live in Washington State, where the rights of injured workers can be upheld and protected. The system is not perfect. There are many fights to fight on behalf of injured workers that are mistreated or fall between the cracks, and that’s what we are here for. For over a decade I have helped injured workers with so many aspects of their claims, but this is the first time I get to be the person providing an injured worker with a new job. I’m thrilled to have Mr. Biddix on my team. He has experienced first-hand what happens after a severe injury at work, and I know he’s eager to put all he’s learned to work helping other injured workers”.

Reck Law, PLLC is a Workers’ Compensation law firm dedicated to representing injured workers in Washington State. Ms. Tara Reck is the founder and managing attorney at Reck Law, PLLC. Since 2006 she has been a very active and vocal advocate for injured workers in Washington State. She is a regular speaker at national and in-state conferences regarding workers’ compensation issues.
