Published on Oct 26, 2016 at 12:00 pm in Fun Stuff.

Halloween is a great opportunity to spend time with family, get creative, provide children with healthy snacks, and participate in physical activity.  Being mindful of potential dangers can allow a safe and fun holiday for everybody.  Thomas Law Offices encourages every parent to be cautious of their child’s safety this Halloween season.  Here are some tips to help keep your child safe:

Decorate light-colored costumes and bags with reflective tape.  Avoid covering your child from head-to-toe in dark fabrics and use plenty of reflective materials that will help make your child more visible to passing cars.  Carrying a glow stick or flashlight will also help your child be seen by drivers.

Halloween Fun Facts and Homemade Crafts

Published on Oct 25, 2016 at 12:05 pm in Fun Stuff.

It’s almost Halloween! We’ve decided to take a slight break from our normal posting routine and post a few Halloween-themed articles that focus on safe, family fun. Let’s start today by looking at the origins of the holiday and of trick-or-treating. Here are some facts you may not know about our favorite ghoul-filled holiday:

The History of Halloween

Halloween — it’s a strange name for an even stranger holiday but the name itself actually reveals a lot about the holiday’s origins. Halloween’s oldest iteration is found in an ancient Celtic festival called Samhain. The Celts believed on the night of the festival the boundary between the world of the living and the world of the dead was thinned and ghosts roamed the earth. When Christians came and colonized the Celts’ homeland, they feared the festival’s implications. They replaced the pagan Samhain with a Christianized version of the holiday called All Saint’s or All Hallows Day on November 1. The night before this Christian holiday became known as All Hallows Eve and, eventually, Halloween.

Self-Improvement: How to Get Your Priorities in Order

Published on Oct 11, 2016 at 1:25 pm in Fun Stuff.

Remember last week when we talked about finding innovative solutions to the unique predicaments we each face in our lives? We’re continuing that theme this week with a bit of an off-the-wall topic for a legal blog– the topic of self-improvement. We know. Pretty off-the-wall, right? Hear us out.

No matter what your career-related goals are or your personal goals, we all have areas that we know we can make improvements on. Self-improvement is what enables us to keep reaching our goals and keep surpassing them. It’s what lets us to become the best versions of ourselves and better those around us. You know that saying that basically reads “Know thyself before you can know others?” It’s true, and it rings true for more than just the act of knowing.

When we continuously work towards improving ourselves, we naturally inspire those around us to become better people. In time, tiny inspirations lead to greater ones. When we all focus on becoming better versions of ourselves, the world becomes a better place.

Innovation is Part of Thomas Law Office’s DNA

When I restarted my Louisville, KY personal injury private practice in 2011, I had a clear vision of a paperless office. I hired people who could help with that vision, and together, we built a law firm that uses the best technology available. All of our systems are digital, and many are cloud-based. Case-management, document storage, phone systems, email — everything that used to take stacks of paper now happens virtually. This allows us to stay organized, be more productive, and get better results for our clients.

It’s an innovative approach, but I was raised in an innovative family. My paternal grandfather came to this country and ended up in Louisville. He saw that there were plenty of locals with fruit, vegetables, and other goods to sell. But they needed a place to sell it. He found a site on what was the edge of town at the time and started the Louisville Haymarket. In a time before big chain grocery stores, the Haymarket was where savvy buyers went to get the best ingredients around.
