Good morning!

Life is the test.. Why not win it?
Americans love a winner and will not tolerate a loser

What is so different about you? What enables middle class folks to rise and win, time after time? Facing and beating challenges? At 7 years old, I began helping another kid on his paper route. Lucky for me, there was a block of triple decker houses and Paulie did not like climbing stairs. A few years later, my next younger brother and I had our own route. Hot in the summer. Cold in the winter. Raining or snowing from time to time. On foot. We did not always whistle while we worked. But the Carrier boys delivered the Evening Bulletin 6 nights a week. And early Sunday mornings, before church, the Journal-Bulletin.
You have done the same. Throughout your life, you took the overtime. The second job. Doing what it took. My weekends at Notre Dame were spent delivering pizza. As a law student, I worked full time on the graveyard shift as a security guard. Just like you. What else could we have done? We had a job. We saw the need. We got it done.
We learned it from our folks. After beating the bad guys in WWII, our parents went to work. Dad taught school all day, came home, changed clothes, and put in 8 more hours at the Narragansett brewery. For 16 years. Mom was an RN. After raising 8 kids, she pinned her nurse’s cap back on and resumed nursing. Details vary, but your family lived the same values. Read More

Power of Attorney Clinic
  • You're paying the tuition bill, but have no access to grades! What?
  • Your college student gets into an accident and the hospital won't release information. Really?
  • He/she is on your health plan. Doesn't make a difference!

Once your child turns 18, they are considered to be a legal adult. Without written permission from your child, you do not have the right to see their grades, make medical decisions for them in the event of an injury, or access any of their financial information.

We have an easy solution! Attend our POA Clinic...register here
