DREAMers hope personal stories will help immigration reform

If you're like most people here in Florida, you more than likely would do anything for your family.  While to most of us this might mean helping a family member move or loaning them some money, to immigrants, this might mean petitioning the government for family visas for relatives who may still be in other countries.

Patient prepped for organ donation not quite dead

People in Florida might be interested to hear about the case of a woman who opened her eyes just as doctors were beginning to remove her organs. The woman was believed to be dead, and doctors were preparing to remove her organs and donate them to patients who were on the organ transplant waiting list. The near organ-removal of the patient who was still alive occurred at St. Joseph's Hospital in Syracuse, New York in 2009.

NSA leaker Edward Snowden seeks asylum in Russia

Asylum is probably one of those terms that people here in Florida have heard when referring to people trying to enter the United States after fleeing oppression from their home country. While this may be the norm in most cases, one asylum case currently playing out in Russia right now is changing that.

New guidelines for truckers aimed at saving lives

It is best to avoid erratic drivers for those in Florida who are driving late at night. This is particularly true if the erratic driver is operating a large eighteen wheeler. If any driver falls asleep behind the wheel, it can be disastrous or even deadly, for the driver and any other drivers who may be on the road at the same time. This is especially true of large vehicles that can easily swerve out of control and quickly cause multi-vehicle accidents with deadly injuries.

Undocumented worker faces deportation after wage-theft claim

As readers of our blog have seen from past posts, immigration law can interact with a wide range of legal practice areas. From criminal to family law, the complexities of intermixing laws can often mean drawn out litigation and conflicting rulings. This can get particularly complicated when employment law is thrown into the mix.

Medical mistakes could be reduced by family intervention

Many Florida family members believe that they should do their best to stay out of the way at hospitals and during the medical treatment of their loved ones. However, evidence may show that family members actually need to get as involved as possible in the medical care of their loved ones to prevent potential medical errors. One woman recalls that as her husband was receiving medical treatment, the staff members misplaced or forgot two orders of blood that her husband required in a case of medical negligence.

Same-sex Florida couple receive green card after DOMA decision

While residents here in Florida wait for the much anticipated immigration reform bill, other changes in the law have been peaking the attention of many immigrants in the state.  This includes the two decisions recently made by the U.S. Supreme Court about same-sex marriages.  In the Supreme Court’s ruling, the justices determined that the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutionally prohibited same-sex couples from receiving federal benefits.  The court struck down the Clinton-era bill, finally allowing same-sex couples the same federal benefits that heterosexual couples enjoy.
