What’s The Hype About Stacey Abrams?

We might just be seeing Stacey Abrams on the ticket for the 2020 Presidential election. The former Democratic Leader of the Georgia House of Representatives, and 2018 Democratic Party contender for Governor of Georgia, is being courted by several of the Democratic Presidential candidates as a running mate. This savvy Yale graduate was the first black woman to become the gubernatorial nominee for a major party and has launched “Fair Fight,” a voting rights organization taking the initiative on funding the training of voter protection teams in twenty battleground states. If she’s not on the ticket this year, she’s young enough to make a go at it later. In fact, she told [...]

My Time With Ruth

I’m eternally grateful that I had the opportunity to study Constitutional Law with Ruth Bader Ginsburg during the Summer of 1996. She remains a great inspiration to me, inspiring me to share some of her contributions with you today.

She was an exceptional student, graduating first in her class from Cornell, and from there she became one of the few women in her class at Harvard Law School. Later she became the first female member of [...]

How to Settle A Car Accident Case

Only the tiniest percentage of traffic accident cases go to trial. That’s because it’s usually pretty clear how an accident happened, and if it’s not a compromise is used as a basis for settlement. It’s rare that a car accident is so complex that it requires the testimony of an accident reconstruction expert. If you’ve been seriously injured, information about the value for damages can be estimated from other cases where people had similar diagnoses and treatment. So why do you need a lawyer to represent you if the cases don’t go to trial? Personal injury attorneys know how to develop evidence for your case that will force the insurance to settle [...]

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and Low Impact Collisions

Don’t believe the insurance companies when they say that it’s impossible to sustain serious injuries in a low impact collision. The reality is that traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can be sustained any time there is force to the head. Brain trauma occurs in car accidents when the head is either propelled into the steering wheel, windshield or other hard objects in the vehicle. When a car is struck, sometimes the brain itself continues to move, causing it to collide with the hard bones of the skull. That’s whyan experienced Queens Brain Injuries Attorney will always recommend a trip to the emergency room after any head injury. A Slight Headache Can Be a [...]

Martin Luther King and The Montgomery Bus Boycott

Martin Luther King Day was signed into law as a federal holiday in 1983, but was not established in all 50 states until 2000. The holiday celebrates the contributions of slain civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., known for his contribution to ending segregation in the United States, and the tactics of civil disobedience that were used to achieve this goal. The Montgomery Bus Boycott was one of his first successes. On the evening of December 1, 1955, 42 year old Rosa Parks boarded the Cleveland Avenue bus in Montgomery, Alabama after a long day at work. She took a seat in the “colored” section of the bus, as was [...]

What Are High Crimes and Misdemeanors

High crimes and misdemeanors is the Constitutional standard the Congress must use to decide whether or not to impeach and remove a sitting President. It’s always been difficult to understand Constitutional law because it’s written in old-fashioned language and is often intentionally vague. That’s why my teaching assistant review sessions, for the late great civil rights lawyer Haywood Burns, attracted hundreds of students and packed the auditorium at CUNY Law School. It was hard enough to understand these concepts back in the 1990’s, but now we live in the age of “fake news” and it’s becoming increasingly difficult to know who to believe. The discussions we see on TV and read in [...]
