Plan Your Week

Welcome to my blog!


Plan Your Week

Regularly planning and calendaring your work will help you timely and efficiently get your work done. It's true that if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

Friday afternoon is a great day to plan your next week. Take time and think about your various projects and deadlines for the next week, and the projects and deadlines the people working with you need to complete next week. You should have a planner for every project, and Friday is the right time to update your project planners. 

During the week schedule 1-hour blocks of time to do un-interrupted work. Work for 50 to 55 minutes each hour. In the last 5-10 minutes of the hour, get up, stretch, and move your body. 

Take an hour for lunch each day. Go for a walk. Get outside.

Also plan your personal time for the next week. Time with your spouse or partner, your family, your friends. Activities like meditation, exercise, socializing, etc. 

Once you work out your plan for the next week,...

Labor Code and PAGA Wage and Hour Claims Against Public Entities

Welcome to my blog!


Labor Code and PAGA Wage and Hour Claims Against Public Entities

The California Labor Code, including PAGA, allows employees to bring wage and hour claims against their employers. But what if the employer is a public entity? Last month, the First District Court of Appeal published the case of Stone v. Alameda Health System (2023) _ Cal.App.5th _ , 2023 WL 1508276 addressing this issue. Subscribers to my publication California Case Summaries™ only need to read my one-paragraph summary of this new case to know what they decided. 


I do three things, all California law related:

I'm a mediator, arbitrator and referee at ADR Services, Inc. I handle business, employment, insurance (bad faith, coverage, UIM), probate, real property and torts (elder abuse, medical malpractice, personal injury, product liability, and wrongful death) cases.

Say "No" to Clients That Aren't Your Ideal Clients

Welcome to my blog!


Say "No" to Clients That Aren't Your Ideal Clients

When a case ends by settlement or trial, most civil trial lawyers enjoy their more relaxed schedule - for a while. It's easy to quickly begin worrying about getting your next case. During this period, it's important to have a clear intention about who your ideal client is, what your ideal case is, and what your ideal caseload is. You have a limited amount of time to handle your active cases. Now that you have some space, keep the opening available until the ideal client and case come along. If you take a marginal client or case, you won't have the space later on when the ideal client and case appear. Be strong. Say no to clients that aren't your ideal clients.

How Extensive is the Immunity Given to Elder Abuse Mandatory Reporters?

California law gives elder abuse mandatory reporters the protection of immunity from liability. But what happens if a mandatory reporter allegedly makes a false report?  Last month, the Sixth District Court of Appeal published the case of Valero v. Spread Your Wings, LLC (2023) _ Cal.App.5th _ , 2023 WL 1858882 addressing this issue. Subscribers to my publication California Case Summaries™ only need to read my one-paragraph summary of this new case to know what they decided.
