July 31, 2011, McKean, PA -- Yesterday I used a chance visit from a website optimization salesman to blog about my ties to Edinboro . (Yes, it's true. Sometimes I blog about things just because it helps my Pennsylvania injury law website). Today, I thought, why shouldn't I blog about my ties to my hometown, McKean , Pennsylvania?

July 30, 2011, Edinboro, PA -- The other day I was visited by a salesman who promised to "optimize" my Pennsylvania injury law website.

July 20, 2011, ERIE, PA -- U. S. News is well known for publishing their "Best of" articles. I am a little conflicted about these sorts of articles. On the one hand, they are fun to read and helpful in the sense that they try to use measurables to identify the "Best of" in any category. On the other, the process of selecting criteria is subjective and the criteria themselves can be, too. The results, therefore, can be misleading.

July 2, 2011, ERIE, PA -- Juries are reluctant to hold doctors responsible, even when the evidence of their carelessness and the tragedy of the resultant harm is great. Still, when the case is thoroughly prepared and well-tried, the plaintiff has a chance. Unfortunately, for many injured patients, the justice available in a courtroom comes far too late.
