Doug Weber just wrapped up the last of a series of claims involving a plane crash that resulted from the aborted takeoff of a US Airways flight. Doug and his co-counsel represented seven claimants in all, and two were travelers from the country of Northern Ireland.  In the process, their legal work established new law in Arizona.  The claims of the Irish passengers, as international travelers, were governed by international treaty, set forth in what is known in aviation law as The...

Our partner, Jeff Miller, and his family have been involved with Rancho Feliz Charitable Foundation for nearly 25 years.   The organization provides opportunities for the people of Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico, many of whom often go without basic human needs.  The focus of the organization has been an exchange program which supports and encourages opportunity in this very impoverished border town. The centerpiece of those efforts has been the construction of an entire...

We wish and hope, of course, for everyone to have a safe and enjoyable New Year’s celebration.  That is made more likely, obviously, if folks display good judgment. Sadly, good judgment frequently seems to be in short supply as we approach midnight on December 31st.  While no one at MWK is looking to ruin your good time, please allow us to offer a few suggestions to help you get safely into 2016 without endangering yourself or others:DO have a decent meal before you begin to drink,...

Last year marked the deadliest Thanksgiving holiday weekend in recent memory on Arizona’s roads. Eighteen people died in crashes over the holiday period. Six of those deaths involved collisions where at least one driver was impaired. The state is pouring a lot of resources into enforcement this year, in an attempt to bring those numbers down. You can do your part. If you drink too much at a gathering - or see someone who has - do the right thing. Call a cab, Uber or Lyft. Don’t let someone...

In October, Jeff Miller and Gabe Kory, Assistant Professors of Practice at the University of Arizona College of Medicine—Phoenix, presented to the medical students on Elder Abuse and Neglect. Using research, statistics, and actual case studies, Jeff and Gabe identified common situations where abuse and neglect occur, as well as clues to such abuse and neglect.

One of my partners has a case involving multiple law firms, some from states other than Arizona. The other day he was talking with one of these out-of-state lawyers, and the fellow excused himself because he needed to get off the phone and leave for a fundraiser for some local judges. His parting comment: “We buy our judges here, and I have a full shopping cart.” We live in a capitalist society. Accordingly, we each live our lives with the general understanding that the more you pay for...

Please help us ensure that America’s seniors living in nursing homes and assisted living facilities don’t have to give up their constitutional rights, by signing an important petition today. There is fine print buried in nursing home admissions contracts requiring arbitration, that is depriving nursing home residents and their families of their rights. The nursing homes, if they even bother to point out this clause at all, will often tell the families that this language is there to...

Our firm is proud to have become a supporter of Rancho Feliz Charitable Foundation through sponsoring the education of two children in the border town of Agua Prieta, Sonora, just the other side of the line from Douglas, Arizona. Rancho Feliz is not simply a charity which collects money and passively donates it; rather, Rancho Feliz is actively involved in changing lives through educational and neighborhood projects. These projects bring Americans to the other side of the border to...

In our elder abuse practice, clients often come to us with a complaint about a nursing home or assisted living facility, not realizing the severity of the neglect and abuse that their loved ones have suffered.  Unable to protect themselves, seniors and the elderly fall victim to over-worked caregivers and profit-driven nursing homes.    According to the statistics, more than half a million reports of elder abuse are reported to authorities each year in America, and millions...

Our firm sees people every day who have suffered brain injuries due to the negligent act of someone else, and some of our clients have had symptoms that rival the worst NFL cases that have been spotlighted in the news coverage.TBI can lead to problems as...
