#DonaldTrump campaign may face copyright lawsuit for use of #GeorgeHarrison song, #HereComestheSun

Trump's campaign didn't get permission from the Harrison estate, which owns the rights to "Here Comes the Sun," prior to using it at the RNC. This could cost the campaign hundreds of thousands of not millions. Copyrighted material is under the exclusive control of the owner. Not obtaining permission and failing to pay is tantamount to stealing.

#CharlesKinsey should get millions from #NorthMiamiPolice

And he should. This was completely unwarranted. He was protecting an autistic man. He was shot for being black. No justification. This kind of violence must stop!

#SocialSecurityDisability claimants endure unfair stereotypes

They are called lazy. Moochers. Cheats. All of these characterizations are as inaccurate as they are unfair. I've never had a client get Social Security Disability who didn't deserve it. People who get disability work hard for the most part and have something physical, mental, or both that is beyond their control. Believe me. I've seen it.

Don't believe people who don't understand Social Security Disability or who hate Social Security in general. They likely have an agenda that is at odds with helping people.

Law firms that evolve will live; those that won't will die #lawyerslife

Law firms are some of the strangest organizations you will ever encounter. And many of them don't really work anymore if they ever did. They have large, inefficient staffs, waste time, money and don't get work done. In other words, they don't provide value to the client.

Clients question this structure as they should. The business world certainly is calling the law firm into question, and it has been for some time.

But it really comes down to the lawyers and whether or not they are willing to adapt to the modern marketplace. I've seen many lawyers who are afraid of progress or they embrace technology and quick fixes as if there are shortcuts to success.

One thing that hasn't changed is lawyers must work hard and be attentive to their clients. Lawyers who do this (as opposed to catering to the firm and its culture) will thrive and not "die" like the others inevitably will.
