The “Full Coverage” Myth

“I have full coverage insurance”

As an attorney since 1984 I have heard the above statement countless times. I must confess I have no idea what ”full coverage” means.

The best analogy that I can think of is that someone standing at the buffet in a cafeteria says “I have a full plate”. How can you conclude that your plate is full? It is a small plate? Or a large plate? Is it all vegetables or has a meat entrée or a desert? Is there one layer of food or is it piled on top of different servings?

You may want to share this idea with your office manager and all the attorneys.

We have replaced many of our basic "new caller" and "client letters" with color picture greeting cards. It costs less than letter head and office envelopes.

Some positive and negative facts about doing business as a C corporation

Some positive and negative facts about doing business as a C corporation

A C corporation is an excellent tool for asset protection and running a business.
Of all the entities it is my personal favorite because it has some of the best legal protections for assets. Part of this reason, is that it is so long-standing and time-tested (A C corp is probably 2nd only to “qualified retirement accounts” for acting as a fort for your assets) and you can feel secure in how the courts will likely rule.

Although Savannah has its share of successful plaintiff's lawyers, just one can lay claim to winning the biggest personal injury verdict in the city's history—plus the runner-up—and this one can't be found in the historic district where most of the top drawer firms reside.
