Were the injuries at the Global Citizen Music Festival worsened by deliberate crowd-control measures employed by event organizers?

There were many reported injures during a mad rush out of the event which occurred when someone stepped on a water bottle and the pop was mistaken for a gun-shot. There are reports that event goers were penned up in sections with steel interlocking gates which may have contributed to the injuries. The event organizers may be liable for these injuries because under the law they owe a duty of care, a legal responsibility for event goer’s safety. I would recommend anybody injured seek immediate medical attention and then seek advice from a lawyer. These injuries may include being trampled, tripping over barricades, slip and falls, and more cause by the mass chaos. Our office is now collecting information about the incident. If you or anybody you know was there and has information about any injuries, please speak with one of our attorneys investigating this matter.

Below is some information we have about this incident.

She told me, “…there was no way in hell any guy who leaves me deserves any portion of my future earnings.” More…

Prenup – Is it for you?

By Walter Lau

prenup

A prenup or a premarital agreement, sometimes called a prenuptial or antenuptial agreement is a contract.  A contract is just a written agreement between two or more parties. These agreements explain how to split up premarital property (items acquired by a spouse prior to the marriage) and marital property (property acquired during the marriage), and how much, if any, alimony or support one spouse should get if the marriage ends in a divorce.

Shake App Review by a Lawyer

By Walter Lau

Let’s start out by saying Shake App is a great tool for making quick agreements, but is by no means a replacement for an attorney for more complex or intricate contracts (Shake concedes this point right up front).  Shake allows you to create, digitally sign and send a contract to the other party for them to digitally sign.  Just think of how many fewer People’s Court and Judge Judy episodes there would be if everyone who loaned someone money had used Shake.
