Today's news brought a story we just could not ignore. Using Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communication technology (V2V), automobiles will be able to alert drivers of trouble ahead and/or take defensive actions on their own. The Vehicle-to-Infrastructure technology (V2I), in conjunction with the Global Positioning System (GPS), will alert drivers to road work, traffic delays, etc and may even provide alternate routes. If this technology becomes a reality, V2V should reduce the number of automobile accidents. If so, people will suffer fewer injuries and car repairs will be greatly reduced. Under these circumstances, one would expect to see insurance rates decline. Along the same lines, the V2I technology should reduce road congestion, save gasoline costs, and generally reduce the frustration and inconvenience of traffic back-ups. Apparently, safer driving could be available nationwide in 10 to 20 years. Source: The Toledo Blade, 4/12/12
In most states, Attorneys are required to take and pass a rigorous bar examination in order to be licensed to practice law in that state. With few exceptions, a license to practice law in one state does not permit a lawyer to practice in another state. As such, attorneys take the bar exams offered in each state they intend to practice in on a regular basis. Also, lawyers must be admitted into the Federal Bar in order to practice law in the federal courts. In addition to taking and passing the state bar examination, attorneys are required to attend educational programs to maintain their licenses. In Ohio, for example, lawyers must attend 24 hours of continuing legal education (CLE) every two years. At Cubbon & Associates, all of our lawyers are fully licensed in Ohio and the federal court. In addition, Stuart F. Cubbon is licensed in Michigan and Florida. Kyle Alison Cubbon and James E. Yavorcik hold Michigan licenses. All Cubbon attorneys double the continuing legal education requirement and attend 24 hours of CLE per year.
When the Toledo Mud Hens played their opening, exhibition game against the Detroit Tigers (April 4, 2012), our firm closed our doors for a half day and took our staff to 5/3 Field to cheer on the home team. Sitting with 12,000 other fans on a glorious, sunny day, we cheered, sang and thoroughly enjoyed the game and our neighbors. Toledo is our town. We live here, were educated here and have raised our families here. We support this community as members of many volunteer organizations. We care about Toledo and the surrounding communities. We give back. We support the home team!
