Nov 6, 2017 - Blog by

Recently, the opioid crisis made headlines when the President declared it a public health emergency. This epidemic is a major concern, but what does it mean and why is it happening? Let’s start with the basics. First, what is an opioid? An opioid is a type of drug that includes illegal substances such as heroin and opium.

Today, October 13, 2017, is officially the Navy’s 242nd birthday. It is hard to believe that the Navy has been around for over two centuries, but it is also hard to imagine the country without it. The Navy was established in 1775 by the Continental Congress to fight against the British. After the revolutionary war, the Navy was shut down.

Apr 20, 2017 - Blog by

It’s never too early to start planning for our own journey’s end, but National Healthcare Decisions Week (April 16-22) is an especially opportune time. This week, we are reminded to evaluate what is important and talk about our end-of-life wishes with loved ones while we still can. 1-800-LAW-FIRM is proudly offering a […]
