Criminal Charges Dismissed and Expunged.....but, Wait! What about the Mugshot?

You have been charged with a criminal offense. You feel your life is over once your friends and family learn of your alleged transgressions. Even worse, you are trying to get into that prestigious college, technical or trade school, or that dream job is just waiting for you to accept. You hire an Attorney to help you defend those charges, they work hard on your behalf and you are elated that the charges are dismissed. Now the Attorney assists you with getting your record expunged to wipe all of this nightmarish time in your life away, for good!

Or worse, what if the child is sabotaging the family with threats of self-harm or threats to harm others?

New Fair Labor Standard Act Overtime Changes: Winter is Coming.

Much like the long waited appearance of White Walkers in Winterfell, employers nationwide may fear the impending modifications to the Fair Labor Standard Act overtime regulations set to take place in less than two (2) months. The Fair Labor Standard Act ("FLSA") is the federal law that establishes minimum wage and overtime pay requirements for employers. On March 13, 2014, President Obama directed the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Labor to propose new FSLA regulations which are aimed at rules for exemptions of certain employees from the FLSA overtime requirements.
