road-accidenT Generally, most people in the world have a schedule. They have a set way that they do things; their own, personalized, rule of order.

The Fight for Immigration| Homeland Security Affair or Power Struggle?

simple_img_6Written By: Louie Talacay

The great statue of liberty is a symbol of freedom, equality, opportunity and prosperity. She watches over the United States, a fictitious torch in her right arm illuminating the great land of opportunity. Imagine how many immigrants have stood in awe underneath the great behemoth and felt inspired to do something greater. Countless people have felt this inspiration and pursued the American dream. So, why is it now that we choose to close our doors to these immigrants, who at one time, shaped the America we are today. Has the prosperity dried up? Are there no more opportunities left?

The fight for immigration reform has been waged in the political battlefield of Washington D.C. Soldier’s wear suits and use pens and words for ammunition against their opponents. The battle is heated and the stakes are high. On one side of the battle field, you have democrats and on the other side republicans.

Comically enough, the battle has little to do with the issue. Many people, in both parties, believe that immigration reform is a necessary. Republican leaders, however, are dissatisfied with the President’s use of his executive powers to expedite the process of immigration reform. They strongly believe that he is pushing his powers and superseding congress. Time and time again, we see this bipartisan issue interfering with true progress.

The Blick Law Firm is here to assist immigrants. We understand that there are families out there, who work hard and have been living in the United States for a long time. We want to help these families find the path to citizenship so that they can be legitimized.

We believe that citizens are people who understand the American dream and act accordingly.

America is the land of opportunity. We built our foundation on immigration; that is why we are known as a melting pot of cultures. Immigration is what makes us unique. Instead of closing our doors to it, we should reconnect with our past.

If you are an immigrant or know of any immigrants seekicallng the road top legitimacy, please direct them to us. We work with immigrants closely to fulfill their best interests.

To seek consultation with one our attorney’s please CALL US AT

Changing Times Reflects International Policies

You’d be hard pressed to meet someone who doesn’t believe in the concept of time. Some argue that time is all we really have, and yet, it is hard to imagine what time really is. All we seem to know is that time has this dynamic effect. It works slowly, at a nearly unobservable pace, and yet, it can have such a profound effect on our lives. These profound effects are what we do observe and indicate a focal point of change. No more is this profound effect evident than in today’s political climate. Policy upheaval and constant reform is the mantra of today’s political scene.

Relatively speaking, current politics has been one of the most dynamic in decades. It seems like every day people are daring to ask the question why? Challenges in the sector of marriages, drug policies, gun control, healthcare, immigration and racial equality are very relevant and contemporary topics in todays political battlegrounds.

 

To top it off, President Obama has been making quite the stir. He promised change in his election campaign and is delivering with radically expedited policies in the second half of his second term. Starting with the healthcare act, President Obama has been spearheading campaigns to revolutionize social and political policies. Just recently, he delivered news about a new immigration plan that was to be enacted. The plan gives amnesty to countless illegal aliens that have been living in the United States and outlined a course of action that could be taken to legitimize themselves and their family.

Continuing his crusade, President Obama announced that he is planning on lifting restrictions to Cuba and ending the decade long strife between our two nations. Furthermore, he has indicated his intentions to forge relationships with Cuba that will hopefully unite our two countries under common grounds.

 

Flashback to the Cold War days….

America then is very different from America now. The Cold War tore our relationship with Cuba asunder. Fears of communism taking hold so close to home lead us to believe that we had no other choice than to isolate Cuba. According to Obama, the policies enacted then, were done so with the greatest intentions. They, however, are no longer relevant.

It is time to open up to our neighboring country. Too long have families been split, unable to reunite. The president believes that by opening ourselves to Cuba and letting families reunite, the Cuban-Americans will bring democracy with them, being the ambassadors and torch bearer of freedom.

I believe these new policies truly reflect the changing notions that people once had on these topics. We have evolved tremendously from where we once were. Like our democratic system encourages, we constantly improve our policies and broaden our understanding of what equality really means.

Demolition our imagined “Berlin Wall” with Cuba could have tremendous consequences on immigration for families. To understand how this news could affect immigration policies consult with one of our attorneys Call us today at 1-888-973-2776 or at our website, link found below.

Mobile App| Technology Frontier

LAB_1109Written By: Louie Talacay

It’s baffling to think that technology has evolved so much in such a short amount of time. Recall the days when dial-up was the most common form of internet access. We used to wait idly as the pixels appeared line by line. Now, pages populate instantly and we are able to stream videos and other various forms of media. Internet speed has become so fast that people regularly consider downloading speed and uploading speeds to determine quality. It’s funny to think that people actually go to the beaches or other remote places in the continental United States and complain about the lack of 4g LTE that is available. The emergence of smart phones, tablets and other portable devices has revolutionized the way we obtain information. Everyone with a smartphone is essentially connected to a sea of digital information the likes of which are greater than any book ever written.

The implications of such access are hard to grasp. Consider this; the internet has more information than the great library of Alexandria. Can you imagine? Each one of us with a smart phone or a tablet is essentially linked to a library so vast that it is impossible to sift through all the information in one lifetime. Of course, being connected to such information at all times has changed our perception of quick access and our notions of acceptable waiting times. We are a more informed and educated public. We want quick access to information and utilize search engines to quickly answer any questions we have.

Blick Law Firm is a company that is staying current with changing trends. We are a dynamic firm dedicated to providing transparency for our clients and their transaction. We understand that people are expecting to obtain information and updates in an expedited manner and we are here to provide it.

Florida Limited Liability Act| iOS 8

Written By: Louie Talacay

20140801_204025 (2)Did you know? The Florida limited liability act redefined the concept of a limited liability company (LLC). Enacted January 1st, 2014 the changes “updated” the old delineations to make them more functional for today’s dynamic utilization of commercial LLC’s. Like the newest update of apple’s iOS 8, the new act modernized the essence of an LLC.

What are the changes? Starting Jan. 1st 2014, all limited liabilities will be formed under the new guidelines outlined in the Florida statutes Chapter 605. The only exception will be limited liability companies that have been grandfathered into the new system; they will have up till January 1, 2015 to conform to new guideline standards. The revised act now makes it more consistent with other states who have already taken the leap into the 21st Century. Thus, the revisions will make Florida more competitive in the commercial market.

The changes expand on the previous act and clears up the ambiguity that existed. For example, the court is now unconstrained from appointing a special litigation committee for a derivative action proceeding. The changes addresses a much needed revamp of the old policies which left much room for interpretation. Furthermore, the new act clarifies questions such as, who is allowed to encumber the LLC Florida and what procedures should be applied for dissolution.

What this means? The changes have a significant impact on many different sectors of our lives. First, all new LLC’s and every LLC after January 1 must be compliant with the new regulations. Limited liability companies also have more specific guidelines for conducting business. These guidelines affect the companies operation and formation. Limited Liabilities are now being held to greater standards. They are now required to have forms, such as, the “articles of organization” and “statement of authority”. As a result, there is less confusion on who operates the company and who is allowed to sign certain legal documents. Even the buying and selling of commercial real estate as well as procedures for company mergers will be discrete. Essentially, the new act ensures no excuses for uncertainty.

Get current on Florida Limited Liability standards. Research Florida statutes Chapter 605. Want to be certain you understand the new guidelines? Get counsel from an attorney at…call

Ebola Epidemic| Business Legal Issues| Implications & Consequences

EBOLA, EBOLA EPIDEMIC, CNN, CNN NEWS, BUSINESS LEGAL ISSUESWritten By: Louie Talacay

Guinea, December 2013 — A curious disease took hold in the heart of West Africa. The strange illness, which was previously documented, found a way to break through the isolation of small villages and make its way to the larger city of Sierra Leon. From there, the epidemic festered and spread it reaches far and wide to the world at large.

Ebola is a very deadly disease that has a mortality rate of 70%. The latest outbreak has infected more than all previous Ebola outbreaks combined and has killed a staggering amount of people including many healthcare workers treating Ebola patients.

Media coverage of the disease and the rampant, seemingly uncontrollable, spread of the disease induce fear and anxiety to the general American public. Some people have suggested drastic measures such as quarantining people who have recently traveled to West Africa for a discrete amount of time.

The seriousness of the situation has caused many people to question the risks and benefits of drastic action. Very recently, Reed Smith, a distinguished international law firm, formed a group dedicated to addressing the legal issues associated with the Ebola outbreak.

What are the legal implications of Ebola in regards to how businesses operate? Is it legal to quarantine people without their consent? Can businesses be held liable for the accidental spread of the disease? These are all questions that the recently formed group is trying to address.

The following scenarios below outline some major questions that are associated with the Ebola outbreak…

1. A shipping company that operates in West Africa ships major goods to the United States. A cargo crate has been infected with fluids from a West African worker unaware of being infected. The disease manages to survive the flight to the United States and infects a worker handling the crate. The worker goes home and infects his family, who, in turn, infects more people. Can the business be held liable for the incident?

2. A businessman recently traveled to West Africa to conduct some key transactions. Upon arrival to the United States, he is quarantined against his will for 2 weeks. He claims to feel completely fine and does not believe he is infected. After, 2 weeks he proves to be completely healthy. The quarantining prevented him from closing the transaction and the company is forced to take the loss.

3. Take the same scenario above but instead of being quarantined, the gentleman says he feels fine and is allowed to conduct his operations. A week later he goes to the hospital and is confirmed with having the disease. CDC is then forced to track his movements and notify anyone he came in contact with, that they could be infected.

 

These scenarios are obviously just hypotheticals, for the time being, but it’s good to address the issue. It is important to know how we will handle the situation, if we ever come across this dilemma.

What do you think about the above scenarios? Go to http://www.blicklawfirm.com and give us your thoughts and opinion regarding the Ebola outbreak. Should businesses be fined or penalized for the spread of Ebola?
