Happy Thanksgiving from McCarty Law!

The leaves have fallen, the temperature has dropped, and the days have grown short. It is once again Thanksgiving. We know that this year’s Thanksgiving is going to look a lot different than years past. We now need to think about things like social distancing, face masks, and hand sanitizer. This year’s holidays also present […]

What to Wear?

After an almost week-long wait to see who won the Presidential election, we finally have a decision. Maybe. While not everyone may be pleased with the outcome, I hope we can all agree that it’s nice to have the election behind us. Or at least the campaign ads! Record numbers of voters turned out to […]

Fantasy Lawsuit

Every Labor Day, I look forward to getting together with my buddies for our fantasy football draft. We have a trophy presentation for the prior year’s winner and then we get down to making our picks – and horrendously ridiculing one another for perceived lapses of judgment when it comes to our choices.

Going, Going, Gone to Court

Now that my kids are teenagers, they can appreciate some of the classics movies I enjoyed growing up. Once such hit is ‘Major League,’ the ‘80s movie about the hapless Cleveland Indians and their magical run to the World Series.
