All residential and business structures are subject to ceiling collapses. Even new buildings can suffer so much severe storm damage that hidden water leaks may eventually work their way down and contribute to excessive mold and ceiling collapses.

Once you notice a ceiling water spot or see any water pouring down or sliding down the walls, you must ask your apartment manager (or the owner) to immediately fix all related problems. Keep regular records of...

Although the duties of police officers can be quite difficult and demanding, there is never a valid excuse for handling assigned tasks in an abusive or harassing manner.  Even when people being questioned or arrested become agitated or defensive, professionally trained officers must use the least amount of force necessary to bring them under better control. Chokeholds should never be used and tear gas, tasers and rubber bullets should only be employed when the lives of police officers are directly threatened – or mob violence and looting continue after verbal warnings. Our law firm understands the full range of constitutional rights...
