Order to Show Cause
August 16th, 2014 @ 8:19 am

So … out of the blue I received an “Order to Show Cause” from the Seventh Judicial Circuit Court of Volusia County’s Probate Division. The document states that, “nothing has been filed to adequately respond to the Court’s Order dated 6/03/2014.” I have no idea what that Court Order could have been; I never received […]

Goldstein, Schmitt & Cambron, PL
June 30th, 2014 @ 11:04 am

Just on a lark I called the law offices of Goldstein, Schmitt & Cambron, PL this morning. They have omnipresent billboards imploring drivers to contact them to help with wrongful death lawsuits, and their web address is femaleinjurylawyer.com, so I thought it might be worth a try. The woman who answered the phone was very […]

Are You Over 25?
May 20th, 2014 @ 1:08 pm

If it wasn’t so insultingly, tragically, horribly awful, it would almost be funny how quickly a lawyer will jump off the phone with you once you say you’re over 25. You see, there’s some fantastic law in the State of Florida that prohibits anyone over the age of 25 from financially “benefiting” from the death […]

They Get Away with It All of the Time
January 6th, 2014 @ 12:30 pm

Just after noon on January 6th, 2014, I had a twenty-minute phone call with Marla Rawnsley regarding the death of my mother and the possibility of finding any justice for her. The short answer is, “No.” Marla told me that — based on her extensive review of all of the medical records, and conversations with […]

I received a voice mail from Marla Rawnsley on December 20th, 2013. She attempted to return my call while I was traveling for the holidays and I missed it. Marla said, “Hey David. This is Marla returning your call. It’s about 11:45 here. Uhm, I can be reached here until one o’clock today and then […]

Checking In
December 18th, 2013 @ 10:00 am
