It’s solstice and holiday time again! On behalf of our firm we wish you, your family, and your loved ones a very happy holiday season. We are pleased to celebrate the third year of our new firm and another year of working tirelessly on behalf of our clients – victims of accidents and legal malpractice.
This year we moved our offices down the hall to a lovely suite overlooking the Granary Burying Ground. After 32 years in this building, we now have a view of the famous Boston site where lie the remains of Mother Goose, Paul Revere, Peter Faneuil, Benjamin Franklin’s parents, and three signers of the Declaration of Independence – Sam Adams, John Hancock and Robert Treat Paine. We are privileged to be a part of this hallowed landmark – from hearing parts of the tours occurring below to enjoying the Park Street Church bells from across the way.
The Park Street Church is where William Lloyd Garrison launched his anti-slavery campaign on July 4, 1828 stating: “Since the cause of emancipation must progress heavily, and must meet with much unhallowed opposition – why delay the work?” We applaud our clients and friends who continue the struggle for social justice, and we continue to give generously to those organizations that do so as well.
In the News You Can Use column there are three things that clients can do to be safer and better protect themselves this coming year: (1) buckle up (our clients who did not wear seat belts suffered much more severe injuries and statistics bear this out); (2) buy the maximum Under and Uninsured Insurance coverage available (this protects you when the driver who causes your injuries has little or no insurance); and (3) have an estate plan including an executed will (and trust), a durable power of attorney, and health care proxy.
We look forward to the opportunity to work with you, your family, and your friends in the future. We wish you peace and health in the New Year.
