  • Sandy Hook victims remembered individually

    Nov 18, 2014 | via Connecticut Post 

    Last year at this time, Ashley Petersen didn't worry what the families of the Sandy Hook shooting victims would think when she came up with the idea to encourage 26 days of kindness in tribute to the 26 children and educators who died on Dec. 14, 2012. But when her idea took off and people began doing acts of kindness in the names of the victims -- and sharing it on Facebook -- Petersen did worry that the families might not like it.

I recently asked about hiring a lawyer for a cell phone ticket (a moving violation) that could cause me to lose my license for 30 days. The only way I will not lose my license is if the charge is dropped to a non moving violation or nollied. A local lawyer that does a high volume of cases for low cost told me not to waste my money on representation because this court was no longer accepting donations for nollies.This means I can try to bargain for a non moving violation or play hard ball and take it to trial. I got a 2nd opinion;however, she is very pricy and not promising anything besides trying for donation and taking it to trial. Is the 2nd opinion worth hiring or is she just trying to get my business? Do you always have a better chance with a lawyer?

Well it will depend on what the breath test showed at this stage and it does not sound like you know that answer. It...
