  • What is Maryland doing in response to the Opioid Epidemic? 

    As many of us know, our nation is in the midst of an opioid epidemic that has steadily gotten worse over the last 20 years. Opioids are a class of drug formulated to replicate the pain reducing properties of opium. These drugs include heroin and prescription pain relievers (i.e. oxycodone, morphine, fentanyl, etc.) According to a 2016 study by the American Society of Addiction Medicine, overdose

  • Medical Marijuana: Is it Legal in Maryland, or not? 

    Earlier this year, Attorney General Jeff Sessions created pandemonium within the medical marijuana industry when he announced that the Trump administration would be reversing an Obama-era low priority enforcement approach to any cannabis-related activity. Now dispensary owners in states where medical marijuana has been made legal, such as in Maryland, don’t know what to do going forward and state lawmakers don’t have answers for them. Is medical marijuana a crime? Can they get arrested

  • Food for Thought: Why Healthcare Powers of Attorney are a Good Idea

    Oftentimes in medical dramas, like ER or Grey’s Anatomy, when something terrible happens and a person is injured we see an exchange between the medical professionals and loved ones of a patient. It typically starts with the loved one asking how the patient is doing; from there, the scene plays out in one of two ways: If the person asking

  • Fraudulent Personal Injury Claims

    Does everyone remember that episode of the Brady Bunch when Carol gets into a minor fender bender in the parking lot of the grocery store? If not, here’s a refresher on the synopsis of that episode: after the accident, the other driver, Harry Duggan, shows up to the Brady home, accusing Carol of being a bad driver (simply because she’s a woman, but that’s another post for another day) and handing the Brady’s a list of damages to his car that he insists they fix. When the Brady’s refuse to give in to Duggan’s list of phony claims against them, he becomes angry and storms out of their house threatening to take them to small claims court. When the court date arrives, Duggan enters the court room, limping and in a neck brace, claiming that he can’t turn his neck because of the accident. Just as the judge is about to render his verdict, Mike tosses his briefcase to the floor with a loud BANG and everyone turns to look. Everyone, including Mr. Duggan with the “immobile neck”. The judge of course sees through Duggan’s ruse, and renders his verdict in favor of Carol Brady.

  • Collision Coverage & Property Damage Claims

    After being involved in a car accident, one of the things most people look forward to most is just getting their life back to normal. To be done with doctor visits, insurance paperwork and to have their car back from the repair shop. From the moment that truck slammed into you at that stop sign to the second the mechanic put your keys back in your hand; you wished it was over and behind you. Thankfully, most insurance companies want it all over and done with almost as fast as you do. In most accidents, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will work swiftly to set up appointments with adjustors and get you squared away with a rental car so that you can reclaim some sense of normalcy.

  • Paying for College 101: Local and State Scholarship Information

    Let’s state the obvious, right off the bat: college is expensive. We all know that college costs in the last decade have ballooned; and at this point obtaining a college degree is nearly impossible without some sort of financial help. More often than not, that help may come in the form of grants or scholarships, and perhaps a personal or federal loan, or two…or maybe three. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the idea of having to find and apply to grants and scholarships or fill out loan applications before submitting your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 1st, we hope you’ll find this post helpful. We’ve compiled a list of resources- links to scholarships for Maryland residents, some specifically for southern Maryland residents. Many of the organizations offering these scholarships report that the funds often go un-awarded because they never receive applicants.
