1. How to Stay Out of Court – Lawsuits are painful. They’re time-consuming, energy-consuming, distracting and expensive. Here’s a dirty little secret that every lawyer knows: most business lawsuits and investigations, or their damages and expenses, are entirely preventable if a company follows some simple pre-emptive steps. On September 20th, in conjunction with the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association, GLF CEO Alex Gertsburg will share proven strategies for saving companies boat-loads of money both inside and outside the courts. Our presenters will then discuss the legal minefields that businesses fall into routinely and need to avoid in their operations. Mark your calendar and register today at while space is available.


2. Supporting Dementia Research – Many of our clients, and we ourselves, have faced the challenge of having a family member receive a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease or another cause of dementia. Meg Pauken and The Gertsburg Law Firm are teaming up with Dr. Cameron Camp and the Center for Applied Research in Dementia to support advances in the treatment and care of dementia by donating a portion of the fee for every Estate Plan created to dementia research. The Center for Applied Research in Dementia is focused on creating innovative interventions for persons with dementia, Alzheimer’s and related disorders. To learn how you can contribute to the cause, contact Meg at (440) 571-7542 to schedule an estate planning consultation.
