For the second year in a row, Mariani Reck Lane, LLC, attorney Jonathan T. Lane has been named one of the 10 best family law attorneys in Connecticut for client satisfaction. The award is given by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys (AIOFLA).

AIOFLA is a third-party lawyer rating organization which publishes an annual list of Top 10 family law attorneys in each state. Those selected for the honor must pass a rigorous selection process. The process begins with nominations by clients and peers and involves follow-up research and an independent evaluation by AIOFLA. The list is meant to be used as a resource for clients who are seeking a family law attorney.

Writing down details about your accident may help you

As you drive to town for a day of shopping, you look forward to what the day holds. However, all of a sudden, a car makes its way toward you and does not stop. The car ends up striking your automobile, leaving you questioning how a day that started out so good could become so bad in a matter of seconds.

Your body aches, and you feel dazed. Fortunately, if the accident was the result of the other driver's negligence, you have the right to seek justice in Connecticut. Writing down notes about the crash and about the injuries you suffered in it may be helpful in the event you decide to hold the other driver accountable for your accident-related injuries.

When a lack of concentration sparks a need for compensation

You probably see it all too often on Connecticut roads: a driver who hesitates to pull out when a light turns green, or one who veers slightly in and out of a lane. Distracted driving is a serious concern across the nation, and the consequences of such negligence can be exceedingly severe.

Chances are, you probably place a high priority on your safety out on the road, but you might be uncertain how to protect yourself against such behavior. While spotting every distracted driver can be a challenging task, knowing what types of behavior constitute distraction could help keep you out of harm's way.

Avoid Court: Approach Divorce Collaboratively

Modern divorces can take a tremendous financial and human toll on the entire family. The law firm of Mariani Reck Lane, LLC wants to change that. Attorneys Linda Mariani, Stephen Reck, and Jonathan Lane, well known and respected Connecticut divorce practitioners, highly recommend the Collaborative process, which allows the majority of the divorce or separation process to be completed out of court. This allows parties to resolve their differences with their dignity intact. Collaborative attorneys such as those at Mariani Reck Lane are able to assist clients in all counties in the state, because the Collaborative process requires a contractual agreement in which both parties agree that no issues will be litigated in court and instead will be resolved by negotiation. Appropriate professionals, such as trained accountants, actuaries and family therapists will be brought in if warranted. The only court appearance required is to have the provisions of the final agreement ordered by the judge. This reporting of the agreement generally takes under an hour and requires only one of the parties to attend.
