    The Fine Print of Alternative Dispute Resolution

    in Legal

    Trials have been described as knife fights with ties. Two lawyers go into a courtroom; one emerges the winner, but both leave with severe battle scars and blood on their hands. That is the name of the game with litigation. The client wants a fight, and we lawyers are paid to deliver it. However, at what point is it more important for lawyers to be counselors rather than advocates? We wear both hats, and sometimes forget that we function as more than well-dressed, well-educated, thugs hired to carry out personal grudges. We are also the voice of reason when the client is so blinded by their own anger that they cannot see the simple solution to their problems before the knife fight begins.
    Alternative Dispute Resolution refers to any means of settling disputes outside of litigation. This can range from a mere conference to negotiate issues, to a more formal arbitration, and all the possibilities in between. Join your hosts, Bryan Babcock and Seterria Brodnex, as they show you a whole new way to get the best results for your client BEFORE your day in court. Tune in.

    America in Decline

    in Politics

    Can we stop the decline of America?   Let's talk about it.

    What does it mean when the President of the United States of America will trade five terrorists for one American treasonous traitor?  Bowe Bergdahl is a known traitor that six Americans died trying to save and our President uses his treasonous actions as an excuse to release five dangerous terrorists that will be back on the battlefield killing Americans within a few months.  This is treason, but no one seems to care.  Why does no one care?  What does this say about America and Americans?
    Grover Norquist, the Muslim Brotherhood and the GOP.  The information being reporting makes the actions of Grover Norquist look like a traitor to America.  How much money did the GOP receive from the Muslim Brotherhood?  Did the GOP know about this?  Can anyone disprove the recent reports about Grover Norquist?  If true, what does this say about Grover Norquist, the GOP and America?
    Constitutional Eligibility to become President of the U.S.A.  Does the Constitution matter anymore? 
    Why are Americans willing to settle for the "lessor of two evils"?  What does this say about Americans?
    What really happened to Hillary R. Clinton's email server?  What does this say about American values?

    Can America Restore her Core Values?

    Sen. David Vitter (R-LA.) has offered two amendments. Vitter amendment #849 to end Birthright Citizenship, and Vitter amendment #850 defund Pres. Obama's November 2014 executive amnesty. The overall Budget Resolution is non-binding, but adding both amendments to the resolution would signal Congress' intent to end Birthright Citizenship and defund Pres. Obama's unconstitutional amnesty. Will the Republicans Senate stand with David Vitter?
