CONSUMER AND BUSINESS ALERT – BE CAREFUL OF THE FINE PRINT EVEN IN THE MOST INNOCULOUS AGREEMENTS

By Charles M. Tatelbaum

In our day-to-day business and personal activities, we often are asked to sign service and other innocuous agreements, both on line and in hard copy with clients and customers, where little time is spent reviewing exactly what is contained in the agreement. While in most cases, the significance of the agreements may not seem important at the time, should an issue arise where a dispute has been created, the so-called “fine print” can create innumerable problems and issues.

IS THE UNITED STATES ON THE EDGS OF ANOTHER FINANCIAL DOWNTURN?

By Charles M. Tatelbaum

For those that believe that U.S. stock market indicators are not the true measure of the health of the nation’s economy, a number of recent events have pointed out the fact that while unemployment may have been stabilized, the economy in the U.S. is far from stable and healthy on an overall basis. Those of us that have dealt with the perils and pitfalls of the erratic economy since prior to the 1980 recession where the prime rate of interest rose to over 20% and inflation was rampant recognize that some of the same type of indicators are present today which could foretell severe economic problems for the near future.

The Stock Market Freefall From A Bankruptcy Perspective

By Charles M. Tatelbaum

The irrational exuberance (borrowed from Alan Greenspan) with respect to the continued increase in the stock market has led many investors to purchase even more securities on margin. The recent freefall will trigger substantial margin calls, which in turn will require additional selling of securities at a loss, and in many instances it will create a cash crisis for the investor whether large or small.

The Florida Supreme Court Expands Rights of Biological Parents

 An op-ed by Tripp Scott's Douglas Reynolds and Henny Shomar. As published in the DBR.

Connor Perkins knew he was the father. He was there when his girlfriend Treneka Simmonds gave birth to their child in February 2013. He took the child to doctor’s appointments, enrolled the child in daycare, voluntarily paid child support and was referred to as “daddy” by the child. Perkins claimed that he was not aware that the mother was in an intact marriage, which resulted in him being denied parental rights with the child by the Broward Circuit Court.

Deeper Roots, Expanded Reach

The law firm of May, Meacham & Davell PA has moved six attorneys and staff to join the Tripp Scott team.

A merger was not on the radar for either firm. Tripp Scott has focused on organic growth by adding one attorney at a time. May, Meacham & Davell (MMDPA) had declined offers before.
