Lawyers have spent years in training and work hard to build a reputation to be proud of.

Family matters

Family lawyers will always be in demand and they have great worth. The breadth of lawyers’ input in family-related matters is not strictly confined to refereeing divorces, although this can make up a large percentage of their work, and instructing a lawyer if you going through a marital breakdown is strongly advised. Family lawyers can also be sought out to assist with paperwork such as pre-nuptials or child custody arrangements.

Following an accident

If you have been injured as a result of an accident be it on the road or at work that wasn’t your fault then you may be entitled to compensation. This compensation is designed to recover any losses you have incurred as a result of the accident and to compensate for any pain and suffering you experienced. Compensation claims are not just restricted to injuries suffered by way of an accident either, if you believe you have been a victim of medical malpractice then medical malpractice attorneys are available to help you pursue the compensation you are entitled to. Injury and malpractice law can be a complex field full of deadlines and strong negotiation skills. It is an area best left to the experts. 


Real estate agents are not the only professionals you will need when buying a new home. There are a number of professional services you will be reliant on and lawyers are certainly one of them. Lawyers will prepare and review all of the relevant documents involved in a sale and purchase, such as title documents, purchase documents, and mortgage documents. While it is not always strictly required that a lawyer carry out the work required during a sale and or purchase of a property instructing one can be prudent and save you money in the long run. 


If you feel you have been wrongly dismissed from your employment, are facing job loss, or experiencing any unfair difficulties or disputes with your employer then an employment lawyer will be best placed to assist you. Employees have a raft of legal protections and employers are expected to treat employees in a certain way. Failure to do so could result in a claim for compensation being pursuable. If you feel you may be entitled to compensation as a result of misconduct while in employment then you should seek legal advice. Attorneys will be able to advise you on the validity of your claim and aid you in seeking compensation if you are entitled to it.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO...

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
