Wills Eye Manual, an Indispensable Clinical Tool

Every clinician who treats eye disorders ought to invest in the new, fifth edition Wills Eye Manual. Updated, revised, and now illustrated in full color, Wills Eye Manual guides diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care for every eye disorder known to medical science.

Wills Manual has topped the best-sellers in its class for five generations. Wills remains the definitive reference, “the gold standard,” for primary care and emergency room physicians. Optometrists rely on Wills Eye Manual for proper diagnosis and treatment of unusual cases; and medical residents in their ophthalmology rotations depend on it to help them demystify “cyclodialysis,” “paracentesis,” and “choroidal effusion.”

The fifth edition of this classic ophthalmology book includes one “buzzworthy” feature unseen in all the previous editions-a spectacular array of more than two hundred full-color clinical photographs, which readers and reviewers have characterized as “breathtaking,” “immensely valuable,” and “inspiring.” Clinicians universally agree the pictures support more accurate recognition of symptoms and signs, reducing guesswork and speculation, and increasing their confidence about ordering more thorough laboratory testing for patients experiencing either unusual or ambiguous symptoms. Most of all, however, students and clinicians describe the photographs as “awesome,” insisting that is the most appropriate technical term for them.

The editors wisely retained the manual’s concise and precise outline format, which mirrors proper clinical procedure, detailing symptoms, signs, diagnostic testing, appropriate protocols for treatment, and the essentials of follow-up care. In addition to quick look-up guides, the fifth edition of Wills Eye Manual has a full chapter devoted to “differential diagnosis,” that is, systematic methods of diagnosing eye disorders without distinctive or unique symptoms or signs. Wills has another chapter that elaborates current ophthalmological imaging modalities-diagnostic radiography; and, as always, the manual includes an exhaustive Pharmacopoeia, arguably more efficient and reliable than the Physicians’ Desk Reference.

The fifth edition of Wills Eye Manual covers an impressive array of new topics, including blunt force traumas to the eyes and “shaken baby syndrome.” New discussions also focus on complications of refractive surgeries and common laser procedures, paying particular attention to laser peripheral iridotomy. The editors also have added new appendices that deal with intravitreal injections and anterior chamber paracentesis. One new appendix explores current issues surrounding the use of antibiotics, examining alternative medications for which bacteria have not developed resistance, and considering “complementary” therapies to catalyze antibiotics’ action against some especially virulent pathogens.

Charlotte North Carolina Wills and Trusts Attorney Asks: What Do You Have In Common With The Groundhog?

I’m not certain there are official statistics for this, but based on my years of experience as a Charlotte wills and trust lawyer, a common denominator among my clients that have no estate plan in place when they come to meet me is that it has been too difficult to face their own mortality. They know it isn’t a matter of “if” but a matter of “when”, but not dealing with it seemed like a good way to handle their fears. Just like spring; the groundhog knows that spring is coming, he just doesn’t know when until he pokes his little head out. Are you like the groundhog? Are you the type to peek-out, see your shadow, and go back in to your safe warm place? Or do you step out and face the day head on? Interestingly enough, the tradition of the groundhog being afraid of seeing his shadow is a recent phenomenon. The tradition started as a medieval superstition that all hibernating animals (not just the groundhog) came out of their caves and dens to check the weather in early February. If the animal could see their shadow, it meant winter could go on for another 6 weeks (which meant they could go back to sleep!) A cloudy day meant spring was just around the corner and they could venture out. As you can see, shadow didn’t “scare” the animal back into the safety of their den. It was simply an alarm clock of sorts! So with that myth dispelled, I also want you to stop using the fear of your mortality as a reason for postponing doing your own will or trust or putting a plan in place (health care power of attorney and living will) for your medical care in the event you cannot make these decisions for yourself. Simply think of estate planning as a way to ensure that your legacy will go to the people you want, in the way you want, when you want. It will also allow you to save your loved ones potential court costs, attorney’s fees and most importantly, will allow them to mourn your loss without the added burden of the distribution of your estate being uncertain. So, as we see all the news and excitement surrounding Punxsutawney Phil this year, take a long look at yourself and see if you are ready to make sure your family is taken care of no matter what. If your plans are lacking, I invite you to give me a call to discuss your options. By simply mentioning this article, you can come in for a Peace of Mind Planning Session (normally $ 750) at no charge. However, this offer is limited to 5 per month so call 704-843-1446 to reserve your space today.

If Revocable Living Trusts Are So Great, Why Doesn’t Everyone Have One?

Question: When discussing Living Trusts, I have often heard the following: “If trusts are so great, why doesn’t everyone have one? I don’t know anyone who has one. Maybe they are not legal in my state.” Actually, you may be surprised at how many people have living Trusts. They are more common than many people realize. Folks don’t often discuss their estate plan with others. Trusts are perfectly legal in every state (with the possible exception of Louisiana).

Answer: There are many reasons why people do not have Living Trusts.

a. They don’t know about them. Unfortunately, there is no place where estate planning is taught, except, maybe, law school. Our public schools tend to avoid teaching anything practical about actual living. We can argue if that’s their job, but that is not the issue here. The issue is that most of us must learn about things like estate planning from family, friends, associates, or professionals. This is not a dependable source of information, even from professionals. Professionals may have their own agenda. I suspect many of my fellow attorneys avoid explaining everything to their clients in order to protect the “mystery” of the law. It makes them more valuable to you. They may avoid telling you about Living Trusts because a trust does not protect their own agenda; they want to handle the probate of your estate and collect that fat probate percentage fee. With a Living Trust, your heirs won’t need a lawyer, and they don’t like that.

b. They don’t have enough assets to need any type of estate plan. Sadly, there is a large percentage of the population of our country who own nothing of value. Most states have a threshold before probate is required. In California, the probate threshold is $ 75,000. In Oregon, it’s $ 50,000 in personal assets or $ 150,000 in real estate assets. Every state is different and these laws change with inflation. You can easily see that the minimum is easily met. $ 75,000 won’t buy you a tool shed in Los Angeles. If you own a home almost anywhere, you probably need a Living Trust. If an estate is smaller than the state probate threshold, no probate is required. The only reason someone with an estate that small would desire an estate plan would be to give a specific item to a specific person, or to disinherit someone. Otherwise, no estate plan is needed for these people.

c. People procrastinate. People do not like to think about dying. It’s not a pleasant subject. Even if they know they need a Living Trust, they don’t want to deal with it. Some people even believe that if they plan for their death, they will die. Sometimes they are just not sure what to do. Nearly every client has said to me something like, “I’ve been thinking about doing this for a long time. I just finally got around to doing it.” Procrastination is the biggest obstacle to estate planning.

d. They are afraid they cannot afford a Living Trust. Many attorneys charge thousands of dollars to prepare a Living Trust, and many people do not have that kind of money in their budget. A trust need not cost that much, however. Here’s something many attorneys won’t tell you. Much of the language in trust documents is the same in every trust. Trusts are almost universally prepared on computers that remember all that language. The preparer’s job is to fill in the personal details for each individual. The preparer does not start from scratch for each trust.

If you shop carefully, you should be able to find someone to prepare your trust documents for a reasonable fee. For example, on my website, you will find that my fees run from $ 299 to $ 499 for most clients. You should be able to find someone in that range near you. Of course, you can always look me up.

Revocable Living Trusts are not new. They have been around longer than the United States of America. Compared to other areas of the law, trust law is fairly stable and doesn’t change very often, other than estate tax considerations. Living Trusts have become more popular in recent years as the probate process has slowed to a crawl and become a quagmire of pain and expense. They are much more common than most people realize. And they will benefit nearly everyone.

Smart Trust

If you want to create more prosperity, energy and happiness for yourself in this low-trust society, the most powerful, single step you can do is to turn trust into a great opportunity? “Smart Trust” represents the last remaining high impact intangible leverage factor/point a business owner, entrepreneur, professional or employed person could harness – to increase every facet of success, prosperity, positioning impact and collaboration.

Why? The more you trust someone, their purpose, motives, message and actions – the faster you “buy into” whatever they are offering, proposing, asking, selling, requesting, — from motiving team members to embrace an initiative, to persuading vendors to provide preferential pricing from compelling prospects to say “yes” (through your marketing/selling) and getting them buying more things, more often — and referring more quality people to becoming lifelong, raving fans of your business and you.

From getting people to work their hearts out for you or your cause or purpose – to getting people to love you – it ALL flows farther, faster, harder, deeper, more successfully, substantially and sustainingly from – ta-dah! – “trust.” But few people grasp aALL the positive implications of commanding total trust.

Few people live a trust-based, purpose-based business or personal life. Even fewer grasp the monumental cost (in financial, emotional and achievement-based) terms that a lack of trust can inflicts — to a business and to your entire life or career or personal relationships. It transcends mere credibility. It vaults past mere ethos. It goes well beyond integrity.

There are “clear cut” factors that create supreme trust. I’m betting you don’t know what most – or any – of them are. That does NOT imply you aren’t honorable in your intentions or that you don’t try to do business truthfully, respectfully. It means you can’t possibly maximize the success, the satisfaction, the reputation, the prosperity, the connection, the richness of interactions you have in your business and personal life.

“Nothing is more important than building trust… “Trust is the key to global reality… with customers, bosses, co-workers and subordinates is essential to business success. The ability to build trust with your spouse, children and friends is essential to personal success. The good news is that trust can be built. The better news is that trust can be rebuilt faster than most of us think. Trust is built on 1. Self trust, 2. Relationship trust, 3. Organizational trust, 4. Market trust, 5. Societal trust.

Trust: The One Thing That Changes Everything, trust is the one thing that can builds or destroy every human relationship. The lack of trust will brings down the most powerful countries, bankrupt the most profitable companies, and destroy the happiest of marriages.

However, trust is the least studied and least understood element of business success. The trust formula, “When trust goes up, speed will also go up and cost will goes down.” The inverse is also true. “When trust goes down, speed will goes down and costs will go up.” Example. After 9/11 trust went down, speed also went down and cost went up….” Enough said?

A final thought, “Smart Trust,” will – I promise – forever alter your worldview – your business fate, your every relationship with every human being you interact with directly, indirectly, individually or in any form of multiplied impact (meaning correspondence, advertising, marketing, etc.).

Words from the Founder of Build Small Business Credit Kaiim Daids: Having been an entrepreneur since the 80’s and starting multiple corporations and LLCs in a variety of disciplines, he has built a strong passion to assist small business owners and entrepreneurs in starting and protecting their personal credit the right way by obtaining corporate credit.

When you’re a relatively new or small company, trying to navigate the credit and lending world can feel like a vicious Catch-22. Most commercial banks and traditional lenders are reluctant to loosen their purse strings until you’ve proven yourself with a strong credit history. But it’s difficult to develop that good record when no one will lend to you in the first place.

Creditors are going to be looking at the personal credit of the person who owns the business (or any shareholders with more than 20% ownership of the company). In today’s lending environment, you should expect to be asked to sign a personal guarantee on any kind of loan or credit of the business. This isn’t always mandatory, but it has recently become common practice in the lending industry.

To build corporate credit with no personal guarantee: NO you don’t have to be a Fortune 500 company, NO you don’t have to have millions in sales and NO you don’t have to give a personal guarantee! All you need is the education and knowledge to do it, and do it right. There is one caveat, the first thing I learned is that before you go on an application spree there are very integral, yet basic steps, that must be taken to have the success with your approvals.

I went out and made the mistakes, fell on my face and now have the knowledge to duplicate it again and again with future businesses. My vision behind Build Small Business Credit is to provide the small business owners with educational materials that take the hassle out of the business credit building process and drastically reduce the learning curve.

I spent countless hours of reading and sorting through all the complications that is out there in order to be able to offer you a simple process that can be followed to obtain corporate credit. My knowledge and experience in building corporate credit is now available on my Facebook page for exclusive discounts and giveaways!

Where you will find offers current, credible and best of all FREE information. The most important thing to remember is that you can’t build business credit overnight. Business owners should think about their business credit from day one. Even if you’re self-funded now, you never know what challenges or growth opportunities will develop down the road. Having access to credit can only help you adapt to changing conditions and position yourself for success.

Estate Planning Is A Must Before You Say Bye!

Well, no one likes to think about dying! But death is as a big reality as living or birth is. There are numerous reasons to prepare for this inevitable incidence by setting up a plan to distribute your estate after you’re gone. After all, you don’t want your near and dear ones fighting for a right to your property after your death.

A will is perhaps one of the most common forms of succession plan to specify the division of one’s property after the death. The one designated to receive property under a will is called a beneficiary, while the one who makes is called a testator. A testator has the right to change his or her will any number of times during his or her lifetime. One can also include as many kinds of instructions one wants in a will. It may dictate the successive ownership of specific items such as furniture, artwork, jewelry, automobiles, pets etc. A will may also define a guardian who will take care of minor child/children and property, in case there is no surviving parent. 

The testator may also use his/her will to disinherit a child from any part of his/her property. According to California, San Diego Estate Planning Law, a person has to be at least 18 years old in order to make a legitimate will. Furthermore, the testator should have a sound mind and no mental disability from understanding the full nature of the document he/she signs. According to Estate Planning San Diego, three types of will are legitimate. One, which is handwritten or a holographic will, provided all the sections of the will are written solely by the testator. A holographic will doesn’t have to be notarized or witnessed; it’s enough to undersign a handwritten will.

As per Estate Planning San Diego, California, the second form of legal will is the one in “fill in the blanks” form. These forms are designed for people with modest estate. They can be easily acquired from the California State Bar. And third form of a legitimate will is the one which is prepared by a third party or a lawyer. The testator may seek the advice of a lawyer regarding various estate aspects and the tax consequences. It is required that the testator undersigns this kind of will in the presence of two witnesses who are not beneficiaries in the will.

Chapter seven – This option is great for men and women who want to unburden themselves completely. Beneath this chapter, all non-exempt properties and assets are liquidated and distributed amongst the creditors to spend off the debts. As a particular person files a bankruptcy case under chapter seven, the court assigns a trustee who normally takes around the non exempt assets of the debtor involved and pays off the collectors.

Chapter 13 – this is suitable for all individuals persons who are interested to spend off some of their debts in decrease or zero interest. This chapter entails restructuring of debts.

Hiring A Lawyer Is Easy When You Know How

Like the majority of everyday people, you probably are not well-educated on all the details of law. Most people will need to hire an attorney at some point, and the entire process can be confusing. This article’s goal is to help you do just that!

You need to get a good lawyer immediately if you have been accused of a major crime. You should avoid saying anything personal to your lawyer because this could cause you to harm your chances of winning. In addition, you might accidentally break the law. Attorneys have the necessary experience to handle any issue that may arise.

You shouldn’t just hire the first lawyer you come across. If you want the best lawyer, you need to do your research. When I used a lawyer without doing my research, the situation turned out badly. Avoid this.

TIP! Make sure your lawyer and you are on the same page when it comes to scheduling meetings. Keep in touch.

Inquire about fee structures with each lawyer you consider. Fees are going to differ quite a bit depending on that lawyer’s experience and demand. This means that you must know what the fees will be prior to paying them. You don’t want to find out how much you will be paying once it is too late.

Think about your issue long and hard prior to looking for legal counsel. Is it really necessary for you to hire a lawyer? Divorces, criminal charges or being part of a lawsuit mean you do. Your situation may be different from those mentioned, but you still could need to speak with an attorney about something important.

You may not know that you are entitled to have everything you’ve shared with a lawyer to be kept confidential. For instance, if you speak with your lawyer about something dealing with your company, nothing can be discussed with your competition.

You should be cautious of providing a lawyer with a large retainer to tackle your case. This may not be given back to you at the end of your trial. Try asking around since many lawyers will take smaller retainers and charge the difference.

TIP! When selecting a lawyer, make certain to research their reputation as much as possible. The Internet will help you do this, as will the bar association near you.

Work with your lawyer to figure out the best time to get together with them. Often an attorney will be hired and then not follow through by staying in touch with the client. Getting a schedule established helps you not encounter this situation.

Choose a lawyer you trust. Especially if the lawyer you are looking for is for your professional matters or business. They are more likely to ask for a retainer or permission to sign checks on your behalf. You must be able to trust them with your wallet. Try as much as possible to protect yourself.

Before you have a lawyer working for you, have a fee agreement in writing and signed. This will let you focus on your case without being distracted by the financial implications. Additionally, it will allow you to set money aside to pay your legal fees.

Prior to hiring an attorney, contact your state bar association to find out if they have any complaints against them. If there are complaints, you will want to know about them beforehand. A few complaints is the norm; however, give a wide berth to those who have numerous ones.

TIP! It is always important to get the fee arrangement in writing, before giving up any money. This will prevent any unexpected expenses popping up during your case.

You should feel comfortable about the lawyer you pick. Find someone who knows his stuff but makes you feel good at the end of the day. Get a new lawyer if the one you are now using doesn’t do this.

When meeting with a lawyer, make sure you are prepared. Understand that lawyers are paid on an hourly basis. Thus, if you are looking for papers or are always calling for clarification, you are going to be billed for those instances. If you are prepared when you go to the meeting, you will end up paying less and have all your issues resolved in one sitting.

Look at where the lawyer attended school. You should not choose your lawyer only because of their education but this is an important factor. If they went to a hard school, it shows they had the drive to work hard and get their degree. A less impressive school can still turn out great lawyers, but where an attorney got his education is something that can help you form an opinion.

Your case may be put on the back burner if your attorney is very busy. You should always ask a lawyer if he has sufficient time to deal with your case before you hire him. Being truthful about their schedule will give you the chance to find another lawyer who will have the necessary time to work on your case.

TIP! While you may stumble across a service on the Internet that helps you find a lawyer, you need to know that you really don’t know whether they’ve screen out the bad ones. You have to check them all out on your own before making a short list.

Lawyers are always expensive. When you don’t have a flat fee agreement, you have to control spending. It is your money, and it is your right to monitor where it’s going and how it’s being used.

Honesty is key when dealing with your lawyer. Lawyers use all that you give them to make a solid case so not telling them information can make it harder later. Understand that your lawyer can’t discuss anything you share with them.

Make sure you and your lawyer discuss a timeline. Know what their projections are for when your case will be filed and resolved. This can help you to come to terms with what you actually could be looking at instead of what you are hoping will happen. If you have a long legal matter, the costs can be a lot. Also, if you are dealing with an especially vexing problem, it can upend your life for a significant period.

How friendly is the lawyer’s office staff? When you call, make a note of how quickly your call is returned and how approachable the receptionist sounds. If it takes a lengthy period of time for your information to be relayed to the attorney, you can expect this behavior to continue after you have hired the attorney.

TIP! Do not get caught up in false promises made by greedy lawyers. There aren’t any guarantees when it come to the legal system.

One usually feels overwhelmed when dealing with the law. The information above will get you on the right track. When you take a little time to learn what to expect, it will help you feel more comfortable and confident.

Wills And Trusts Lawyer In Oakland County Donates Christmas Gift To Animal Shelter

It is often observed by a Wills and Trusts Lawyer in Oakland County, and most people, that Christmas time is one of the best times for families with animals. But one question is raised: What about animals without a family? Here is one organization that stands out from the rest. The Michigan Animal Rescue League is one of the most established animal shelters in Southeast Michigan. It has been serving the community since 1953.

Whats more, in spite of the slump in the economy of Detroit, someone still takes a time out to donate for a good cause. Here is a local Southfield attorney who is also a Wills and Trusts Lawyer in Oakland County, a Detroit estate planning attorney, and Michigan Probate Litigator.

At a recent seminar we caught up with Southfield lawyer and noted author, Joseph J. Dadich at the Michigan Animal Rescue League. Atty. Dadich is a renowned expert on online wills, asset protection, guardianship in Oakland county, and conservatorships in Oakland County. He takes great pleasure in working with the estate and trust of families, being a Detroit estate planning attorney. He also willingly takes charge in protecting what is important to these families as a Southfield Lawyer and Wills and Trusts Lawyer in Oakland County

From a number of our queries related to the rescue league, he states that this organization does a great job ensuring all animals are loved. The Michigan Animal Rescue League believes that every animal deserves the highest quality of life. Each and every animal that comes through our door is given unconditional love and regard in the form of physical care, socialization and the day to day joys that an animal would receive in a home.

Atty. Joe continues to explain that this organization does not euthanize the animals except when injury and disease or temperament makes other options impossible. When asked how the organization provides this level of care; Atty. Dadich explains that they give the animals (dogs and cats) consistent, dedicated care and attention in an effort to help regain their ability to connect with the families and enjoy life. He further notes, on a lighter side; that while he was at a meeting, he noticed a postcard that allowed him to donate to the organization.
