Beasley Allen’s Tom Methvin was recently featured on Alabama Public Television’s “Capitol Journal” program to discuss the State Bar’s Mortgage Foreclosure Assistance Program. The program seeks to provide timely assistance for homeowners facing foreclosure, with the ultimate goal of helping them keep their home. The program provides free legal assistance through Legal Services Alabama, and is funded by the Alabama Civil Justice Foundation and the Access to Justice Commission. Those seeking assistance can call a toll-free hotline at 877-393-2333 or visit www.alabar.org and click on the “foreclosure resources” link. Methvin is managing partner at Beasley Allen and is serving as President of the State Bar in 2009. Video Rating: / 5
Chad Cook, shareholder with Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, P.C., who practices in the firm’s Mass Torts Section, joins attorneys and co-hosts Bob Ambrogi and J. Craig Williams on the broadcast program “Lawyer to Lawyer” to discuss the legal implications surrounding pharmacy errors and pharmacy misfills. Recently a young woman was mistakenly given the wrong medication intended for another customer at a Safeway pharmacy in Colorado. Cook says these errors happen more often than people would think, citing an Auburn University School of Pharmacy study that revealed one out of every 1,000 prescriptions filled was in error, which would equal about 3.5 million errors every year based on national prescription volume.

In this video, Attorney Mike Cyr expains what the legal term “Conviction” means in New York…
We get phone calls all the time with questions about legal issues in New York or confusion over legal terminology. One such question about the word “conviction” gave us the idea for this video.
You can be “convicted” in New York of all different kinds of things. You can be convicted for a traffic ticket –or you could be convicted for MURDER! That’s a huge range of crime.
The word just means that you pled guilty to something (or were found guilty of something) in New York. It means that you were found to be responsible for something… now that could be for a speeding ticket, or a misdemeanor, or the most serious crime in NY, a felony.
So if somebody says to you, “I was convicted in New York.” All that tells you is that they had some brush with the NY legal system, it DOES NOT tell you what sort of traffic violation or crime they were involved in…so you need to ask.
I hope this video is helpful. If you have any additional questions about the New York criminal system (or a case you are facing), call us: 607-229-5184

Tanisha discusses how she feels about working with us on her consumer legal issue. She also discusses her experience with one of our paralegals Randi.
“Hello, my name is Tanisha. I had a legal issue occur and I didn’t know what to go or which direction to turn.
I went on the internet and located Watts Law Group. I called and they were very efficient. They called me back within 24 hours. I came down from Gadsden and within 48 hours, they were discussing my legal issue with me.
They made me feel very comfortable. Any questions that I had, they answered. They were very concerned with my happiness and how I was feeling about my whole case. They were available for me 24 hours whenever I needed Randy or John.
I would recommend Watts Law Group to anyone that has legal issues, or if a matter comes up and you need some legal advice on what to do. Please contact Watts Law Group in Birmingham, Alabama. They were helpful with me and my case. They handled my case very efficiently, and I just appreciate and love them. Thank you.”
Every case is different so you should not rely upon past results and the Alabama Bar disclaimer is “No representation is made that the quality of legal services to be performed is greater than that of any other lawyer.”
We represent consumers who are suing debt collectors, being sued by debt collectors, facing false entries on credit reports, and those who are facing a wrongful foreclosure.

“The chairman of the Alabama’s Cherokee County Republican Party resigned this week in the wake of his arrest last Friday for growing multiple marijuana plants on his property.
The Gadsden Times reported that 52-year-old John Loyd Ellis was arrested after a routine marijuana eradication operation spotted the plants from the air.
State party chairman Bill Armistead said that the Alabama GOP has no comment about the arrest except to say, “We will allow legal and judicial system to follow its course.”
Ellis has been charged with first-degree unlawful possession of marijuana and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.” *

The Young Turks (Winner – Best Political Podcast & Best Political News Site of 2009) were the first original talk show on Sirius satellite radio and the first live, daily webcast on the internet. But that is not the revolution.
We are a rare show that combines all of the news that people care about in one place. We are not afraid to talk about politics and entertainment and sports and pop culture. But that is not the revolution either.
The real revolution is in daring to be honest with people. We don’t patronize our viewers or lie to them. We have real conversations and deliver the news honestly.
