An Invitation: The Delaware "Funky Permanencies".....What We Don't Know Can Hurt Us (A Campaign)

It occurred to me as I was mailing claimant attorney Henry Davis a copy of my super-duper laminated permanency chart that it really bugs me that I have no way of knowing if it is complete. Truly and boastfully complete....Not for sure. I had polled some of the Hearing Officers a few months ago and no...

Score One for Our Team: DSBA 2011 Annual Work Comp Seminar Is a Winner

Props to (my hero) Gary Baker, Jessica Welch and Nancy Cobb who (with some modest assistance from yours truly) put together a heck of a seminar. I thought it would be appropriate to offer some brief snippets of wisdom from the event for those of you who could not attend. In addition, I am taking it upon...

A Different Kind of Miracle on 34th Street -- and the DE IAB Makes Postage Law in a Coverage Case

"Miracles are a retelling in small letters the very same story which is written across the world in letters too large for some of us to see." C.S. Lewis Okay, so the title of this post has a lot to do with the U.S. Post Office....which played a really big role in the movie. Not so much...

A Cat in a Pinafore…….and a Little Bit About the Delaware Farm Exclusion

I was going to title this one "The Thanksgiving Post".....but it just doesn't fit with my photos of Nutella Grace in her new Christmas dress. However, it is Thanksgiving season and as my heart turns to all things turkey, pumpkin, and cranberry, what is more appropriate than a case about...

Chicken Impossible: Second Time’s a Charm for Avian Flu Case in Delaware

While it is not yet Easter, tis the season where my thoughts turn to the Easter Basket-and ever since I was a toddler, my favorite has always been the marshmallow peeps. I love peeps and could easily eat a box of 12 in one sitting. The Queen Mother's favorite baby picture of me is one in which a...

The Thanksgiving Post: Better Late Than Never Does Not Apply To Delaware “Payment Without Prejudice”

I offer a big holiday shout out to Jeffrey Friedman of Silverman, McDonald and Friedman. While I have always considered Jeff's biggest accomplishment to be snagging Tiffany Quell for his bride, followed by snagging Mike Silverman for his partner, today's case is a reason to give thanks to Jeff...

Today's post is a salute to my lack of ego. Yep, I am going to break my own rule and post about one of my cases....and take it a step further and tell y'all about a case I recently lost to Matt Bartkowski of Kimmel, Carter, Roman & Peltz. I so wanted to just file this one away in my drawer...
