The first year of running the Rise To Shine Scholarship has been wonderful for us! Allen, Flatt, Ballidis & Leslie reviewed over 200 essays to come up with five finalists. Then, we re-read essays and reviewed the transcripts of our finalists to come up with the undisputed winner:
Let’s pretend you’re heading to the store for some last-minute supplies—your aunt and uncle just dropped in, and you want to have a nice meal at home. You manage to squeeze your SUV into the last row at Corona Del Mar Plaza and you slip out the door, intent on your shopping list. But as you step into the lane, you hear an engine that sounds close—way too close. Next thing you know, something cold and hard hits your legs from behind and you fall face-first on the asphalt.
As a late summer heat wave flattens the Southland, we at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis & Leslie are still thankful for California. Why? Because California is the only state in the U.S. that ever encouraged motorcyclists to lane-split!
It’s time! We closed our scholarship on July 31st, and now, we’re ready to name names—our finalists’ names, that is! Please join us in celebrating:
If you’re the kind of person who visits dog parks, Orange County has some of the best!
Here in Newport Beach, where our law office is located, we’re not too far away from the dog park at Avocado Avenue and San Miguel Drive, across from Civic Center Park. It’s just over 4 miles away – a 15-minute drive (12 on a good day). It has an lovely ocean view and plenty of parking.
Most of us carry various types of insurance including auto, health, life, homeowners, and some more unusual polices for GAP that covers the balance of a loan when your vehicle is declared a total loss. Or if you are Jennifer Lopez, you can actually insure your ASSets!
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, an average of 10 people are killed in tractor-trailer accidents each day in America. And over 80% of those killed are not occupants of the semi-truck—they’re pedestrians, bicyclists, and other drivers.
When a semi-truck crashes in Orange County—alright, in the entire United States—determining liability can be complicated because many, many parties may be involved. And each of them has its own insurance company, more likely than not. And trucking insurance companies are notoriously difficult to work with. They hate giving out money, even to accident victims who desperately need it. So be warned!
