Cell phones and vacations

With all the high-tech cell phones available now, does it make it harder or easier for you to go on vacation?

A lot of people have a hard time leaving the office and work behind, but with your PDA, e-mail and client info is just a click away. These devices allow us to be instantaneously accessible nearly all the time. We’ve come to expect people to always pick up their cell phones or return an e-mail in just a few minutes. I’m sure many clients are thinking the same thing.

You could be camping in the woods, relaxing on the beach, or exploring a new city and still keep up with a case.

But is that really a good thing?

It is for those who get stressed out on vacation thinking about everything they have to come back to in the office. Answering e-mail and doing some work may make their vacations more enjoyable.

I like leaving everything behind and just dealing with it when I get back. It may make it harder when I first return, but I enjoy my time off more.

What kind of vacationer are you? Turn everything off and enjoy the silence or keep your PDA with you at all times, ready to take a call?

  1. Well, maybe it's because they are unelected, and, they have a tendency to strike down laws by elected officials from all over the country. When you have been taught that "Democracy" is something almost sacred, then, you will have a tendency to frown on such imperious conduct. Lawyers get acculturated in law school into thinking that this is the very essence of high minded government, but to people who are more heavily than King George ever did, they may not like it. Thanks for the information.

  2. I pd for a bankruptcy years ago with Mr Stiles and just this week received a garnishment from my pay! He never filed it even though he told me he would! Don't let this guy practice law ever again!!!

  3. Excellent initiative on the part of the AG. Thankfully someone takes action against predators taking advantage of people who have already been through the wringer. Well done!

  4. Conour will never turn these funds over to his defrauded clients. He tearfully told the court, and his daughters dutifully pledged in interviews, that his first priority is to repay every dime of the money he stole from his clients. Judge Young bought it, much to the chagrin of Conour’s victims. Why would Conour need the $2,262 anyway? Taxpayers are now supporting him, paying for his housing, utilities, food, healthcare, and clothing. If Conour puts the money anywhere but in the restitution fund, he’s proved, once again, what a con artist he continues to be and that he has never had any intention of repaying his clients. Judge Young will be proven wrong... again; Conour has no remorse and the Judge is one of the many conned.

  5. Pass Legislation to require guilty defendants to pay for the costs of lab work, etc as part of court costs...
