stop traffic from dagosan:


legs and back

forecast flu —

  • Difficult Decisons: May it Please the Court gets serious about anticipating the death of loved ones —

    living wills, healing wounds and more.  Don’t put it off.

  • The recent murder of a Kansas social worker in the home of a client raises some important questions

    about protecting members of “helping professions.”  See Job Protection Sought for Social Workers 

    (AP/ABC News).   When doing “home visits” and interviews while representing children in Family

    Court, I often felt unsafe.  Our “training” for that role focused on the law, with a little on child

    psycholgy, but no instruction at all on personal safety and risk assessment.
