At least for civil law cases, there are proposals pending to meet the needs of those unable to hire a lawyer with paraprofessionals, explains Mayowa Odusanya.

BRANDON, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, December 15, 2018 / — In his newest article, Mayowa F. Odusanya reviews the emerging trend of "paraprofessionals." The complete article will be published on his blog at

“Paraprofessionals” such as "Licensed Legal Technicians" or “Limited License Legal Technicians”

There is an evolving strata of Paralegals that ascend the ranks to act almost like attorneys, similar to Nurse Practitioners who in many cases diagnose and treat health conditions. In civil law cases, there are proposals pending (or already implemented in certain States, as explained below) to address the day-to-day legal need of those unable or unwilling to hire a full-fledged Attorney. This includes the commonplace legal needs of low to moderate-income people by authorizing limited practice by licensed non-lawyers, now known as “paraprofessionals.” This is easy to understand. Many procedures or applications are difficult to understand for “normal” people who are not exposed to them on a daily basis. For example, even forms provided by Courts to make certain filings simpler and possibly enable people to file the forms or applications themselves without the assistance of an Attorney are quite difficult to understand that at least some explanation is still required. This concept has been gradually gaining acceptance. Unlike Paralegals, such paraprofessionals provide services without the direct supervision of an attorney. At this point, two state supreme courts have embraced the “licensed legal technician” concept, and other jurisdictions are closely monitoring its viability.

Given the high percentage of self-represented parties in courtrooms around the country, some advocates believe regulated legal paraprofessionals (charging lower fees) can help narrow the access-to-justice gap. That may one day be the case, but the paraprofessional model and its efficacy in addressing this disparity remain unproven, and ethical rules prevent such a system at least at present.

Washington State pioneered the “limited license” model. In 2013, after years of study, the Washington State Supreme Court adopted the concept of the “Limited License Legal Technician” (LLLT) to perform specific legal services in the area of domestic relations. LLLTs are subject to stringent requirements, which include obtaining an Associate’s degree or higher and completing additional specified coursework; performing 3,000 hours of Paralegal work; passing three law and ethics exams, as well as a character and fitness review. Further, they must also complete a licensing program, satisfy financial responsibility requirements, as well as continuing legal education, and meet malpractice insurance requirements. LLLTs are subject to rules of professional conduct and a disciplinary process similar to those that apply to attorneys. The Board that oversees the LLLT program is now considering expanding the subject matter areas in which paraprofessionals may practice to include consumer debt law.

Several other U.S. States are now following this example. The scope of permissible work for “limited license” paraprofessionals differs under these various models that have been proposed. It generally includes assistance to clients in understanding legal proceedings and completing court forms and other form documents, but does not include appearing for a client in court or at depositions, or taking on complex legal matters. For example, LLLTs in Washington currently may not represent a client in mediated negotiations, but they may do so in Utah.

One of the main reasons for this development is the realization that there is massive need for some form of representation in civil law areas for vast numbers of the population that are attempting self-representation due to limited access to attorneys (mostly due to financial restraints). This is in spite of legal aid societies as well as significant pro bono attorney services. A large number of individuals continue to represent themselves in these areas and could benefit from paraprofessionals.

This access-to-justice disparity has prompted State Bars and court systems to promote other forms of nonlawyer assistance to pro se parties, including courthouse navigators and facilitators (examples are Arizona, New York, California, and Washington), and legal document preparers (Arizona, California, and Nevada). Many other States are looking into other forms of permissible assistance (“judicially-authorized-and-regulated legal service providers”) to help address the problem of unmet legal needs.

The Paralegal Role in the Legal Profession

Mr. Odusanya notes that, in general, Paralegals are qualified to perform their responsibilities by completing an educational program, receiving training on the job, or through actual work experience. They do not undergo the rigorous training of Attorneys, nor are they licensed like attorneys. Paralegals sometimes perform “legal” work that otherwise would be done by attorneys. However, the supervising Attorneys remain fully responsible for any legal work delegated to a Paralegal and must always supervise the Paralegal’s work. There are several different types of Paralegals, the designation depends upon the required education and training. Examples are:

“Certified Paralegal”

A Certified Paralegal is a Paralegal who has completed the voluntary certification process of a professional association by developing a specified level of professional competency. The various accreditation bodies include: The National Association of Paralegals (NALA) which awards the designation of CP (Certified Paralegal) and CLA (Certified Legal Assistant) to those who meet their specific requirements and complete the competency examination. NALA also governs certain Advanced Specialty Certifications (CLAS) programs, and there also exist certain state-specific advanced competency exams.

“Registered Paralegal”

The National Federation of Paralegal Associations (NFPA) awards the designation Registered Paralegal (RP) to persons who have met its requirements, which requires passing a specific competency examination known as the Paralegal Advanced Competency Exam (PACE).

“Professional Paralegal”

The National Association for Legal Professionals (NALS) awards the Professional Paralegal (PP) certification designation which reflects a proficiency in procedural law, substantive law and an overall commitment to a higher standard of conduct and professionalism. NALS' Professional Paralegals may distinguish themselves further by earning Specialty Certifications in various substantive law areas.

“Backpack Kid” Russell Horning Encourages Support of the Boys and Girls Club of America

Russell Horning Backpack Kid

Russell Horning Backpack Kid

LAWRENCEVILLE, GEORGIA, USA, December 14, 2018 / — Internet sensation Russell Horning, known by his creative handle “Backpack Kid,” is a regular volunteer and supporter of community charities. He encourages fans, readers, and all community members to spend a little time giving back and volunteering with programs like the Boys and Girls Club of America.

16-year-old Russell Horning is a dancer at heart, and his Backpack Kid persona is a viral internet sensation because of it. His self-choreographed “flossing” moves are performed around the world and have been integrated into pop culture through video game references and SNL performances. He has a loyal internet following and fans in high places, as mega pop-stars Rihanna and Katy Perry will let you know.

Beyond his love for dance, Russell Horning also has a passion for giving back to his community. He’s made appearances at elementary schools with donations of backpacks full of supplies, giving an impromptu performance alongside the kids. He’s appeared at Zumba events and celebrity video game tournaments, and even surprised a teen this year at her prom.

Backpack Kid is also an ongoing supporter of the Boys and Girls Club of America, whose mission is to “enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.”

“I share a lot of the same values as the Boys and Girls Club of America,” says Russell Horning. “I want kids to be nice to each other and respect each other and achieve their dreams. I think they’ll grow up to be good people that way.”

The Club has had an impact in the lives of youth since as far back as the 1860s, proving to be one of the longest-running charitable organizations in operation today. It began with the vision to provide a world-class Club Experience that ensures all youth are on track to graduate school and have a plan for their future. It also helps young people develop good character along the way and develop habits of a healthy lifestyle.

Today, the Boys and Girls Club of America impacts the lives of more than 4 million kids and teens with the hopes to eventually reach more than double that number. Its broad reach is in thanks to diverse program offerings, supporting subjects like education, sports, career development, the arts, wellness, and leadership.

Volunteers are extensions of the hopeful environment the Club creates for youth. They help kids with homework, coach sports games, do crafts, teach art projects, and act as mentors. Through their assistance, the Club is able to build healthy relationships with young people and have a positive impact in the lives of our communities’ future leaders.

Russell Horning, who uses his Backpack Kid fame to spread togetherness and respect, hopes that he can inspire more people to volunteer with the Club.

“When you help these kids, you help yourself,” Russell Horning says. “Everybody is a little better off.”

Micah Raskin Wants Everyone to Give Back

Micah Raskin

Micah Raskin

Micah Raskin thinks there is a better way to do business and it involves giving back to those who need it most.

NASSAU COUNTY, NEW YORK, USA, December 14, 2018 / — Born in New York, Micah was raised in a musically talented family, playing in bands with his brothers throughout high school. He graduated from Baruch College with a Bachelor’s degree in business administration and began a career that would take him around the world and back. Having seen the world, Micah has learned to live a life of joy by waking up every day passionate about every moment in front of him.

“Choosing happiness in both work and my personal life was the greatest lesson I have ever learned,” explained Micah Raskin. “It’s been the constant throughout my entire life. I help businesses every day realize that their employees will be much happier if they have a sense of purpose in their lives, and often times it starts right at work.”

Micah Raskin challenges everyone he meets to find their passion. This is the ultimate baseline for everything you will do in your life, and when a business or person starts to think about giving back, they have a greater sense of purpose by doing it with passion. Everyone should feel empowered to chase their dreams, and in doing so, you’ll open your heart up to a world of giving you didn’t know existed.

Micah Raskin also reminds businesses to encourage their employees to give their time, not just their pocketbooks.

“Showing up and serving people in person is a life-changing experience that provides you with a deeper sense of purpose,” explains Micah Raskin. “I can’t overstate the importance of giving your time to those who need it the most.”

Over the decades Micah Raskin has partnered with a number of great charities and even started his own, and he often reminds businesses just how important it is to find reputable organizations to give your time and money to. It’s important to find charities that have a vision for the future, like Charity Water. This ensures that your efforts are going to actually help those who need it most.

Whether volunteering at the local soup kitchen, or shelter, Micah Raskin encourages everyone to take the leap of serving, and there is no greater time to start than the holidays.

When Micah Raskin isn’t working with charities, you can find him coaching businesses and touring the world playing poker. To learn more, click here.

Steven R. Pietro shares details of company's charitable donations at Christmas time

Businessman and law graduate Steven R. Pietro opens up about military food supplies business and its charitable donations made during the festive season.

WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, USA, December 14, 2018 / — A Native American service-disabled veteran owned business established and run by law graduate and businessman Steven R. Pietro, Justice Government Supply, Inc. proudly serves the women and men of the U.S. armed forces with a complete catalog of the finest steaks, roasts, select butcher chops and more across the globe.

"It's about giving our troops a true taste of home," says Pietro. "We would never serve anything to our troops that our families and we would not eat ourselves," he explains. "To that end, our motto is indeed that we provide 'a true taste of home,'" adds the business owner.

The company's charitable efforts at Christmas time began when Pietro and his team donated 5,000 lbs of prime T-bone steaks to troops stationed in war-torn Afghanistan.

The law graduate and businessman has continued the tradition each year since making subsequent charitable donations during Christmas and at various other times of the year to troops and other military personnel stationed around the world.

Today, Justice Government Supply, Inc. regularly ships upwards of 250,000 lbs of product at a time, something which Pietro says is both challenging and exciting in equal measure. "We've grown from selling individual pork chops, hamburgers, and steaks to fulfilling volumes of product which now involve incredible economies of scale and huge logistical undertakings," he explains.

"During the war in Afghanistan," he continues, "we became the number one bulk ground beef provider worldwide, consistently delivering a superior quality product, source-loaded directly from our plant in Chicago and shipped straight through to Kabul, thereby saving the U.S. Government a substantial sum of money on each order."

Steven R. Pietro is rightly proud of his achievements and accomplishments with Justice Government Supply, Inc. having now served American troops across the globe for over a decade. "I'm immensely fortunate to have a business partner who is truly as committed as I am in terms of honesty, integrity, honor, and in providing the absolute best quality products at highly competitive price points," he explains.

Pietro's partner at Justice Government Supply, Inc. is Grady Renville, a service-disabled veteran and Native American of a recognized tribe who served in three of the four branches of the U.S. military.

With the company's most recent round of festive donations now made, Steven R. Pietro is keen to reflect on the overriding philosophy of operations at Justice Government Supply, Inc., both at Christmas time and year round. "There are no problems, only solutions," he declares, wrapping up, "and failure is simply never an option."

Andrew Cratsenberg reveals recent real estate investment highlights

Andrew Cratsenberg Jr Federal Way

Andrew Cratsenberg Jr

Attorney and real estate investor Andrew Cratsenberg continues to add to his Washington property portfolio while also acquiring additional sites in Arizona.

FEDERAL WAY, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, December 14, 2018 / — Investing heavily in the states of Washington and Arizona, attorney and experienced investor Andrew Cratsenberg Jr. continues to grow his extensive commercial real estate portfolio. Through limited liability companies including Elite Property Investments, LLC, Ahwatukee Hills Plaza, LLC, Wildflower Village, LLC, and Cave Creek Commons, LLC, Andrew Cratsenberg Jr. has recently invested in cities including DuPont and Phoenix, as well as surrounding areas and towns such as Gilbert.

DuPont, he says, is located within close proximity to Joint Base Lewis–McChord. A training and mobilization center for all military services, the operation is the only Army power projection base situated west of the Rocky Mountains in the Continental United States. Currently, the base constitutes one of the largest military installations in the country.

Gilbert, meanwhile, is an economically diverse suburban center positioned just southeast of Phoenix, and was once known as the so-called 'hay shipping' capital of the world, according to Andrew Cratsenberg. Currently the most populous incorporated town in the U.S., Gilbert is the sixth-largest municipality in Arizona and the fifth-largest in the Metropolitan Phoenix Area. The town has enjoyed an average annual population growth rate of almost 13 percent across the last three decades.

Recent investments were funded in part by the sale of one of Andrew Cratsenberg's existing properties, Federal Way's prominent Center Plaza, a 7.74-acre site boasting 74,000 square feet of leasable space. Arranged on behalf of Andrew Cratsenberg and Cratsenberg Properties, LLC by Capital Pacific, the sale also included a nearby Red Lobster, Starbucks, and a vacant parcel of land primed for development. Additional properties, acquired through 1031 tax-deferred exchanges, are currently understood to be under contract to purchase.

Andrew Cratsenberg has also recently spoken out about the care of loved ones with Alzheimer's disease and personal perspectives on surviving cancer.

Instances of Alzheimer's, a condition which is regarded as incredibly difficult to manage, are on the rise in the U.S. as the population ages. A cancer diagnosis, meanwhile, Andrew Cratsenberg further recently explained, or diagnosis of any other life-threatening illness, can, he says, prove to be earth-shattering. Beating the disease, however, and continuing to live life to the full can be truly profound, according to the investor and attorney, himself a cancer survivor.

Elsewhere, Andrew Cratsenberg and family have previously pledged $1 million to support local Federal Way Public Schools in tenant improvement works. In acknowledgment of the $1 million pledge, Federal Way Public Schools' main district office building now bears a plaque with the names of the Cratsenberg family, proudly displayed in the site's reception area.

Sean Juhl Explains How to Make the Most Out of Social Networking Over the Holidays

Promotion expert, Sean Juhl explains the best ways to take advantage of Holiday time social media marketing.

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, USA, December 14, 2018 / — The holiday season is a busy time for everyone. However, when you own a business, the season of holiday shopping is also the season to be selling. That means that your social media game must be on point. That way, it can stand out among the cornucopias of other business social media posts.

Fortunately, Sean Juhl has done extensive research on this conundrum and is generously sharing his findings with fellow business owners. Juhl knows that a business owner wears many hats. Yet, he is also aware that it is easy to take advantage of holiday time benefits through social networking.

Schedule Out Your Holiday Cheer

Having a plan is always the first step toward a successful endeavor. Planning holiday posts are no different. Scheduling out your posts in advance can help you map your holiday success. It gives you a direction to head and different aspects to look forward to. Admittedly, a business person should be planning posts ahead of time all year long. Yet, having a strategy for the season helps smooth the holiday process substantially.
Embrace the Holiday Happy Atmosphere

During the holiday season, people want to be around others who help promote their own level of cheer. That is why simply going through the motions is not good enough. People want to genuinely feel a holiday atmosphere. Therefore, instead of simply going through the motions, get into the spirit. Have fun with your social media, as well as with the remainder of your business. Add fun holiday trinkets to your emails, your newsletters and any other public form of communication. Plus, do not be afraid to enjoy some in-house holiday fun. Host an Ugly Sweater contest or take part in a Secret Santa. Do something to encourage employees to enjoy the season and it will show in their own holiday performance.

Reward Your MVP Followers with a Special Offer

Each company has those loyal followers who are always interacting with the business. They always share content, react to content and comment on posts. Plus, they patronize the business frequently. All this adds up to a couple of MVP followers. Tis the season to show appreciation. Therefore, get a list together of these MVP followers and send them a gift. This could be a coupon, a small token of appreciation, or something more creative. However, whatever is done, make sure it is exclusive. Make sure that your MVPs know they are receiving this gift because of their loyalty to your brand. This will only strengthen the relationship the person has with your business.

In summation, Sean Juhl wants all business owners to have a jolly and profitable season. That is why it is so important for business owners to utilize their social media accounts effectively. Of course, this is important throughout the year, but it is essential during the holiday season. Thankfully, these tips and tricks practically gift wrap making getting the most out of social networking over the holidays.

5 Tips to Help Plan a Home Renovation

For home renovations, there are a lot of big decisions that need to be made, which often makes it hard to know that you’re making the right call.

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, December 14, 2018 / — When it comes to renovating your home, there are a lot of big decisions that need to be made, and it can be hard to always be sure that you’re making the right call. There are a few things that everyone should keep in mind when they are deciding on renovating their house that will help them with making these decisions.

The most popular home renovations that people choose are of course, kitchen remodels, bathroom renovations, and home additions. These are most popular for several reasons, the first being that they are the ones that often add the most value to homes. When you are undertaking a home renovation or remodel, you must make sure that it is adding value to your house – otherwise it can be a large waste of time and money. The second reason why these are the most popular home renovations is because they are the most commonly used areas. Bathrooms and kitchens are used every day, by everyone in the house. It is no wonder why they are often redone!

Our other tips for home renovations are below.

Tip #1: Don’t underestimate the cost of renovations.
Home renovations should not be taken lightly. When renovating, you are changing your home, so you must make sure that when all is said and done, that you’re happy with the final product. This means that you shouldn’t cheap out and go with lower cost materials or labour. In home remodeling, you get what you pay for. Make sure you’re budgeting for what you want, so that way you won’t want to just remodel again in a few years.

Tip #2: Make sure you’re adding value.
This is one of the most important tips for a home renovation. If your new home addition or renovation isn’t adding value to your house, it may not be worth undertaking. While it’s important to make sure that you like the renovation, if you’re going to be planning on selling your house in the hear future you have to make sure that whoever is going to be buying your house will like the renovations as well. Another important aspect of adding value is that it essentially negates the cost of the renovation, or at least minimizes it. If you spend $75,000 on a renovation, but it increases the value of your home by an equivalent amount, then your renovation costs are essentially at a net zero.

Tip #3: Find the right home renovation company for you.
There are a lot of renovation companies out there that will promise you the moon, but unfortunately under deliver on results. It is imperative that you find a home renovation company that has a proven track record of delivering over and above for their clients, and that can provide references and job samples. Do your research, and then, when you feel confident in your decision, make your choice.

If you keep these simple tips in mind when doing a home renovation, you’ll come out being more than happy with the results. It is a big decision, so don’t be afraid to take your time so that you feel confident in all of your choices.
