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. 

Property 

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. 

Employment

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.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

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....

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
