Inventory List

Inventory List
My mom is a barber.  She hears all of the town gossip of Franklin, Ohio.  There isn’t usually much going on in Franklin, but recently, a client told her the following story:  This couple came home from work one day and their grill was gone off their deck.  They assumed that their grill had been stolen, so they accepted it and moved on with their life.  Approximately one week later, they went out to their deck to find their grill back in its original position on their deck.  They found a card on top of their deck that said something to the effect of: “Please accept our sincerest apologies, our neighbor told us that we could borrow their grill, and we thought this was theirs.  We found out later that this was not their grill, and we had borrowed the wrong grill.  Please accept these Bengals tickets as our gift to you.  We appologize for the mix-up”  This couple was excited about receiving the Bengals tickets and went to the game the following Sunday.  When they returned home from the game, their entire house was empty.  The contents of their home had all been stolen. 
Recently, I came into contact with the owner of Contents Management, a company that will come out to your home and create a complete inventory of all assets in your home.  Until recently, I was not aware that this type of business existed but apparently there are many companies that provide this service.  A home inventory would be really important for a person facing a scenario such as the one above, but it would also be helpful for anyone that needs to make a claim on their homeowners insurance policy as a result of fire, flood, or other natural disaster.  Other people that could benefit from this service are: estate planning clients, landlords, divorce clients, and small business owners.
If you are interested in having an inventory of your home or business completed, you can contact your homeowner’s insurance agent.  It may be possible for your insurance agent to add the cost of the inventory to your monthly premiums.  If your insurance agent is unwilling to provide this service, you should look up local listings for home inventory services.  If you are in the Tri-state area, you may schedule an appointment with Contents Management.  They are a professional, affordable, and confidential inventory business serving clients in the (Cincinnati) Tri-state area.

Attorney-Client Relationship

Attorney-clients relationships can be complicated.  It has been said that you aren’t an experienced attorney until you have fired at least one client.  If that is true then I am officially an experienced attorney.  There are generally only two reasons that would prompt me to fire a client.  Either 1) there is a conflict, in which case I cannot represent the client without violating the Ohio Rules of Professional Conduct or 2) the client is not following my advice and would be better served by another attorney that he/she trusts. 

If you ever find yourself fired by your attorney, you shouldn’t take it personally.  Some people’s personalities just don’t go well together.  When I meet a client, I do my best to follow my intuition about people and only accept clients that I think I will work well with.  When that system fails, I do my best to work with the client and have been mostly successful in doing so.  In a small number of cases, I have felt as though the client would be better served by another attorney.  I want those clients to realize that although I may no longer work for them, I still have their best interests in mind.  By removing myself from the case, I am trying to help the client move on and find another attorney that will be better suited for that particular case. 

This instance does not occur very often, but when it does, it is most helpful when the client realizes that it is in his/her best interest to find a new attorney that will work well with the client.

The Memory of Memorial Day

Like most american families, I have close family members that have served in the military.  Specifically, my grandfather served in the Army when he was in his 20s.  I was lucky enough to have a great-grandmother (my grandfather’s mother) who lived until 2002, she died only a few days before my 18th birthday.  My grandmother used to sit around and talk about how my grandfather didn’t take his duty to serve very seriously and went AWOL with his brother (also in the military) on several occassions.  I don’t remember all of the specifics of the stories she told since it has been almost 10 years since I have heard any of these stories but I do know that there were many and I know that based on the number of times I have probably heard these stories, I should know more details.

On this memorial day, I would like to dedicate this blog to thanking all members of our military for their service.  I’m pretty sure that my grandfather will never read this (I don’t even think he has a computer or the internet); however, I’m not thanking him or any other service member because I want any recognition for doing so.  To me, just saying thanks is enough.  If you know any service members, pass my words of thanks along, I am thanking them too.
