ATTENTION FLORIDA RESIDENTS WITH DISABLED FAMILY MEMBERS-THE FLORIDA POOLED TRUST CAN HELP YOU

As a public service to Florida residents, Cathy Jackson Lerman, PA invites citizens with family members who are disabled including the elderly, children, and adult children to contact The Florida Pooled Trust for assistance. Recipients of personal injury settlements are also eligible to participate in the Pooled Trust. As a lawyer and the mother of an adult permanently disabled child, I was delighted to find that the Pooled Trust permits its beneficiaries to receive public assistance benefits while preserving assets in the Pooled Trust for supplemental needs.

There are many benefits to using a Pooled Trust.  Because the Pooled Trust is comprised of a large amount of funds that are pooled for management and investment purposes, the beneficiaries will receive better interest rates and other financial benefits from the market than would be otherwise available in an individual trust. Even persons of modest means can participate in the Pooled Trust which gives families, such as ours, a great deal of comfort that our son will be taken care of without having to burden family members or worry about continuity of care.

There are, of course, certain requirements and restrictions for the Pooled Trust.  The Trust account must be established by a parent, a grandparent, a legal guardian, the individual beneficiary or the Court. Each trust account must be established solely for the individual beneficiary, the assets in the Pooled Trust must belong solely to that beneficiary, and that beneficiary must be disabled as defined by law.

If you are interested in more information on this wonderful Florida program, I recommend you call The Center for Special Needs Trust Administration, Inc. in Clearwater, Florida. Their number is 877-766-5331. They will provide you with information on their services at no cost to you!

I can assure you that you will rest easier knowing your loved one is protected and you have provided them with a cost effective solution to maintain their government benefits eligibility while making sure they have their supplemental needs met.  We are indeed blessed to have this program available to all qualified Florida residents.  Best Wishes, Cathy

LERMAN LAW FIRM ISSUES CONSUMER PROTECTION WARNING ON ANIMAL CANCER CARE CLINIC

Animal Cancer Care Clinic operated on a dog to remove a tumor on her paw last week.  The bandage was placed on the paw and the owner was told to come back in a week.  About 5 days later the dog started showing signs of pain and distress and the owner took the dog back to the Clinic.  The bandage was too tight and the dog had lost circulation in the paw. Eventually the paw had to be amputated.  The owner was charged $2200 for the removal of the tumor and the tumor was benign.  These people are greedy, expensive and unprofessional.  A healthy dog went into their facility and came out an amputee. AVOID THEM AT ALL COSTS. 

If you have had a bad experience with the Animal Cancer Care Clinic please email Cathy Lerman, Esq. at clerman@lermanfirm.com.

NO ONE DICTATES FREE SPEECH-IN SUPPORT OF MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN FRANCE

The horrible tragedy today in Paris is just an example of what terrorists, criminals and organized crime will do to stop the truth from being revealed and stop the right of world citizens to express their opinion.  Regardless of whether you agree or disagree with what others say, it is not your right to dictate that or to threaten them or kill them for exercising their right to free speech.  This country was built on that principle. We all need to take a stand against terrorism directed to free speech. Otherwise the terrorists and criminals will rule the world. And that is not acceptable.

A TRIBUTE TO ESPN’S STUART SCOTT-MAY HE REVEL WITH THE ANGELS!

My son and I first met Stuart Scott in 2007. Stuart was a rare and special individual.  My son, who is handicapped and wants to be a sports reporter, idolized Stuart. Stuart had given a talk that day to a room full of sports announcer hopefuls in Orlando at an ESPN event.  My son was one of them. After his talk, instead of leaving immediately to avoid the crowds, Stuart stayed for over an hour and spoke to every single child who waited for the chance to speak to him.

When it came to my son, Stuart could not have kinder, more encouraging, funny and patient.  There are not a lot of kids with autism and other disabilities that are encouraged to go into sports broadcasting but that day Stuart Scott told my son he would be an excellent sports announcer some day. Stuart hugged him, shook his hand and had his picture taken with him.  I could hardly hold back my tears of pure joy that this man was so kind to my son. Stuart acted like he had absolutely nothing else to do.  And my son believed Stuart that he could be a sports announcer.  Since that time my son has attended college and will graduate with a four year degree this spring and will be looking for a job-as a sports announcer.

Stuart never forgot him.  They chatted on Facebook and remained friends. I have never forgotten that day and when we learned Stuart had cancer we let him know he was constantly in our prayers. Stuart’s death has hit us hard.

If ever there was an angel in sportscasting-it is Stuart Scott.  May he revel with the angels in heaven and may his family find peace and comfort in the joy he brought to the world of sportscasting -and to a kid in Coral Springs, Florida who Stuart believed in-and made him believe.   We love you buddy and we will miss you so much! Rest in Peace, Good and Faithful Servant.   Love, Cathy and Ryan

A WISH FOR A HAPPY, HEALTHY AND BLESSED NEW YEAR-HERE COMES 2015

Just wanted to thank all of you for the love, prayers, and support for my husband and daughter.  It means a great deal to all of us and we all pray that 2015 will be a much better year.

For the Taylor victims, 2015 will be the year of sentencing finally for Ephren Taylor and Wendy Connor.  It is now scheduled for January 22nd. I will not be able to attend because of my family’s illnesses but I will be there in spirit and I praise God that all of you will see justice done. It has been a long time coming but we are blessed to have people like attorney Chris Huber to fight the good fight for victims of fraudulent schemes. There are also other people like Secret Service Agent Tom Whitaker who spent countless hours working the case.  May God bless them both for their dedication and hard work. Our Mantra has always been Romans 12:21:

DO NOT BE OVERCOME BY EVIL-BUT OVERCOME EVIL WITH GOOD!  LOVE YOU ALL! CATHY

___________________________________________________________________________________

And Renuen Victims-We walk in the truth. DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED.  Our mantra is John 8:32:

YOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE!

The truth will be revealed in 2015!  COUNT ON IT.

Love and the Most Blessed of New Years to All of You,  Cathy

RENUEN VICTIM-ALERT

In order to cover up their fraud, Renuen and its officers,directors, inside and outside counsel are filing frivolous lawsuits and lien actions against Renuen victims and anyone who tries to help them  and are trying to force victims into  signing a paper that says their job was complete and completed satisfactorily so Renuen can get funded.  They are doing this even if the job was never permitted, was permitted after the fact and the equipment was not authorized/approved in the state of Florida.

If you are one of those Renuen victims, please contact your local law enforcement agency immediately and file a complaint. Give them all of your documentation and pictures of the work that was done.  Under Florida law, an unlicensed contractor cannot enforce their contract.  So any lien actions by Renuen  are fraudulent and void.  Renuen is an unlicensed contractor. We walk in the truth.  We will prevail.  Love to all, Cathy
