On The Law - Thoughts of a Pennsylvania Lawyer

Stop Harassing Women - Things you Might not Know You're Doing - | Coudersport Attorney | Bradford Attorney| Olean Bankruptcy Attorney

Today's post is about something that has been on my heart for a long time.  Women.  Or more properly the treatment or mistreatment that is often heaped upon them as they go about the activities of daily life.

I have had too many close friends along with multiple clients who have experienced harassment in daily activities or at work talk with me to about the things they endure, sometimes on a daily basis, to ignore this topic.  My hope is that perhaps one person would think before they speak or act.

I am going to be speaking plainly today, so buckle up.  First, though, understand this is not a rant nor is it a bash of men.  It is a call for respect, civility, and reflection.  We all live and work together on this planet.  We all like to joke and interact, and, if appropriate flirt, and to do all of the things that humans do.  I'm all for it and for celebrating enjoying life.

But, your waitress is not a piece of meat who wants you to say lewd things about her or get your number.  More likely she is a hard working (maybe even holding 2 jobs) woman trying to provide for herself and her family.  That's why she is slaving away working so hard to deliver food to you as fast as she can.

The woman walking down the street going to the post office to pick up the mail for the office is not waiting for you to honk at her or holler out the window as you leer at her on your way by.

Your co-worker does not want to hear your thoughts about her body constantly even though she may seem to smile and laugh.  Nor does she appreciate it when you block her path in the hall or coming up the stairs so she has to talk to you.

The constant onslaught of unsolicited comments all day long is harassing.  It is, by and large, not wanted.  And women should not have to put up with it. 

So think before you speak.  Show some restraint.  Show some respect.  If not for her, at least to avoid getting a letter from me notifying you that we have dual filed a Complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission.

For more information on this topic you can click here to go to the EEOC web site.  Or here to go the the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission web site

Please share and spread the word.  Lets make this world a better place for those with whom we share this marvelous world.

How to File for Bankruptcy | Olean NY 14760 | Warren, PA | Bankruptcy Lawyer

Filing for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy | Olean, NY | Warren Pennsylvania

Dealing with a mountain of debt can be scary.  Filing for bankruptcy doesn't have to be if you hire our firm.  It is our #1 goal to help you overcome debt and to believe in your ability to succeed again.  We are excited and passionate about doing this for our cllients.  You wil lfind this same level of commitment from our bankruptcy lawyer, to our bankruptcy paralegal and our staff.  We all understand that life throws unexpected circumstances at us - unexepcted bills, loss of job, medical bills, divorce.  The list goes on and on.  We will never judge you because we know how difficult and embarrsing this is; we are here to help you.  Call now for help - the consultation is free!  No strings attached.

In this article we outline the basics of the process.  When you call us, we will go over this and more in much more detail.

When you are trying to figure out whether to file for bankruptcy, the process is complicated but we will get you through it with ease.  The process is the same regardless of whether you are in Bradford, McKean County, PA, Olean, New York, or Warren, PA.  All petitions for bankruptcy will be filed in the Western District - either in Pennsylvania or New York dpending upon where you live.  After your petition is prepared and filed, there will be what they call the Meeting of Creditors, which will occur either in Olean for our New York clients or in Warren for our PA clients.

So how do we decide whether to file for bankruptcy?  When you and I meet, which can be in person if you want, or it can be over the telephone so you do not have to travel, I will ask you some general questions about your income, your secured and unsecured debt, your house value and mortgage, your other assets, and questions about recent transactions like tax refunds, payments to creditors and family. 

Based upon your responses, we can usually determine whether bankruptcy is the right choice and whether to file a Chapter 13 or a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.  The next step is for you to gather together documents related to the questions that I asked you so we can verify income and debts and assets for the Court.  Using those documents, I will prepare your paperwork (the petition) that asks the Court for help by way of an order discharging your unsecured debt.

The entire process is often only 4 months long.  So if you would like to be debt freee in 4 months, call today!  (814) 274-8612
