Stop the Closure of the Rancho Cucamonga Civil and Family Law Courts!

The attorneys of the West Valley of the Inland Empire are fighting hard to protect the rights of the citizens of the Inland Empire.  It was announced by the San Bernardino County Presiding Judge that the Superior Court in Rancho Cucamonga will no longer provide civil and family law services as of May 2014.  This move will deprive so many people of their access to local courts, protections from domestic abuse through easy access to the courts, lower cost legal services, etc.  It is so important that anyone affected by this move, speak up and demand an alternative solution to the problem.  Those who will be affected include everyone in the Inland Empire.  We have already seen Victorville lose its civil division, as well as the closure of courts throughout the County of San Bernardino.  Many citizens now have to drive hundreds of miles to reach a court for the simpliest matters.  Read the Daily Bulletin article for more information on the issue.  If you have a position on the court closures, raise it here.  Let your voice be heard to stop the deprivation of your legal rights.   Then share this with your friends and neighbors.  Unless we voice our concerns our rights will be lost.

October 21, 2013 – Serious Fontana Intersection Accident (Foothill Blvd. & Citrus Avenue)

A horrific accident occurred at the intersection of Foothill Blvd. and Citrus Avenue in Fontana, California. This massive collision resulted in at least three deaths and several others suffering very serious injuries. About twenty minutes before 9:00 p.m., on October 21, 2013, it is believed a vehicle drove through a red light striking another car in that intersection, with ultimately three cars involved in the accident. The negligent driver, cost a child, a woman and a man their lives.

Fontana police officers are investigating the cause of the accident. Some of the important aides in determining the cause of this accident will be information from the occupants of the cars in the accident, independent witnesses, skid marks, if available, and the damage to the vehicles. If one driver admits he or she ran the red light, then the investigation is made much easier.

Sometimes, victims of these type of major accidents, while grieving and struggling emotionally and physically, are bombarded by unethical lawyers and their “runners” and “cappers” trying to get these victims to sign up their cases. This conduct is unethical and illegal. Beware and don’t get trapped by these ambulance chasers. Only use lawyers that comply with the law and are looking out solely for your best interest for your personal injury and auto accident claims.
