It nuh matta wah dem duh, wi run tings, tings nuh run wi. I run my things. I have work and I get it done. If I have to stay late at work, I stay late. If I have to put in the extra time to get a good result, I'll put in the extra time. There is no substitute for hard work. I pay attention to the details. Knowledge is power, so if I know the details, then I have power, rather than letting the devil in the details have power over me. Gimme a call if you're looking for a lawy
I can't imagine the deep suffering of Mary Rose Trinidad, the 53 year-old woman whose husband and four daughters were killed in a car crash when a pick-up truck suddenly crossed the grass median and struck her family's minivan head-on. On that fateful day, Friday, July 6th, Ms. Trinidad began the day with her family, wrapping up their vacation to Ocean City, Maryland.

Now, I'm getting ready to head back to Court for a custody master's event early this afternoon, and of course I'm hoping for a good result on behalf of my client. It's been a busy day thus far, and looks to continue as such. I'll follow-up with other clients as best as I can later this afternoon and tomorrow.
Right now, at this very moment, there are over 7 billion human minds that are operating around the world. Literally, right now as you read this. It's like 7 billion computers that are constantly working, either actively conscious or in sleep mode, but never off. It's easy to get caught up in looking at the world through your own set of eyes, since that's our default setting. Or, put differently, it's hard to fully fathom that your thoughts, which are a product of your sens
Last night I watched a program on PBS about the blackout in Puerto Rico and that the causes, broadly speaking, were two-fold: 1) natural -- as a result of Hurricane Maria, and the logistical challenges of relief due to Puerto Rico being an island; But also just as importantly 2) man-made -- as a result of a constellation of conditions: Puerto Rico's territorial status; aging infrastructure in Puerto Rico; policies by both domestic Puerto Rican governments and the U.S. federal
