Unfortunately, each year we receive calls about children who fell out of windows. Typically, the child is young. Generally, the child was not being supervised. Almost always, a screen gave way. In an effort to help prevent these traumatic falls through education, Cubbon & Associates shares tips from the National Safety Council: • Avoid placing furniture young children can climb on near windows. • Do not lean on screens or rely on them to prevent a window fall. Insect screens are designed to keep bugs out, not to keep children in the home. • Supervise children to prevent them from playing near windows, balconies or patio doors. • Install building code-compliant devices such as window guards (with quick-release mechanisms in case of fire). • Teach your children how to safely use a window to escape during an emergency. http://www.nsc.org/Pages/NationalWindowSafetyWeek,April.aspx
Kyle Alison Cubbon spoke to new lawyers at the Toledo Bar Association (www.toledobar.org) New Lawyers Training seminar on April 9, 2011. The specific topic was Law Office Management. Balancing the Ohio Rules of Professional Conduct with the daily realities of a law practice can be challenging but with thought, planning, and a strong adherence to an ethical practice, the challenge is rewarding and fulfilled.
