A Bit of Legal Humor

Sometimes a lawyer just does something that catches us by surprise.  Such is a recent letter sent by N.J. attorney  Stephen B. Kaplitt in a pro bono capacity for a client that received a Cease and Desist communication from the township where the client lived.  It is highbrow humor but the meaning is certainly the shining beacon at the center of this attorney’s letter to the Township of West Orange, NJ.

A Cease and Desist communication is relatively common in business and typically serves as a request to a person or company to halt a particular action or activity and also to not resume doing that action again in the future.  A cease and desist letter can be sent by an individual or a corporation.

Many times this type of letter is used in the process of protecting (or attempting to protect) a trademark, a service mark, or other intangible asset.   You may also see this type of communication used in landlord/tenant situations or issues between neighbors.  There are some common general forms available online but before you use a generic form be sure the form you plan to use has the proper and necessary wording for your situation.

If you ever receive such a communication or think you need to send one, call me (321-631-0506) or email.  Initial consultations are always provided at no charge.

FAQs about Family Law (Brevard County, FL)

The firm puts out a great little piece about How to Choose a Lawyer and usually we mail with it some information about family law issues such as dissolution of marriage, custody topics, or alimony changes.  (If you are interested in these topics you can call the office for a copy of our material or visit the website as well.)    Recently I came across a great article posted by the American Bar Assosciation titled Frequently Asked Questions About Family Law and it seems a good, short list of things to consider about various concerns in the area of divorce, finding a divorce lawyer, what to do about child custody, and others.

Take a minute to read the full ABA article on family law and follow the links through to the accompanying articles.    Take a minute also to review our own “10 Divorce Mistakes To Avoid” on the firm site serving all of Brevard including Melbourne, Cocoa, Titusville, Palm Bay, Melbourne Beach, Cape Canaveral, Indialantic, Eau Gallie, Suntree, Viera with our two offices, six attorneys, and extensive experience.

Great Day Oviedo – Seminole County Event 2012

From: Great Day in the Country

“… [This] is a huge family-oriented Arts & Crafts event hosted by the GFWC Oviedo Woman’s Club.

We have over 350 Arts & Crafts Booths, Business Booths, and Community Service Booths.  Entertainment is provided throughout the day on 2 stages.  We also have a special children’s play area and lots of food & drinks.

The event is located on the grounds of Lawton Elementary School, 151 Graham Avenue, Oviedo, FL 32765.  If you go to the intersection of Lake Jessup Avenue and Broadway (also known as S.R. 426 and Aloma), it’s impossible to miss it.

FREE parking is available at Oviedo High School, and you can ride the FREE shuttle bus to and from the show.

Shuttle Bus Details. The free shuttle bus will run continuously from 9 to 4, but if you’d like to walk, the high school is close enough to get to Great Day by foot. The bus picks up from the street that runs adjacent to the football field (King Street, look for a big sign). The bus drops/picks up at Great Day on the bus ramp of Lawton Elementary (on the east side of the cafeteria near ArtFest). It usually completes a drop-off/pick-up circuit once every 20 minutes.  The shuttle bus has room to stash strollers and wheelchairs for the ride, and it is air conditioned.

Paid Parking. Various close (and privately owned) locations around the show offer convenient parking at rates usually ranging from $5 to $10. The donations often benefit local civic groups or charities and the lots are typically roped off with signage indicating the rate and the cause.”
