Law new is a concept that all legal firms need to understand and harness to their advantage. It’s a way of providing legal services in different ways that can benefit clients without impacting other areas of legal practice that might be the firm’s primary focus. This is a way to add value in a way that might be hard to achieve in the past.
The process of becoming a law in the United States is complicated and time consuming. During a session, bills can be introduced in the House of Representatives and Senate, and then assigned to committees to be researched, discussed, changed, and voted on. If a bill passes both houses of Congress, it may then be sent to the president to sign into law. Once a bill becomes a law, it will usually be enforced by the federal courts.
Whether you’re working on a high-profile civil rights case or helping an individual with a simple will, the attorneys of our firm are committed to giving every client our full attention. We know that each case is unique, and we take the time to listen carefully to our clients so that we can tailor our services to their specific needs. We offer a wide range of legal services, including criminal defense, personal injury, family law, and estate planning.

The New York City Department of Consumer and Worker Protection is updating its rules to comply with Local Law 144 of 2021, which requires the City’s agencies to conduct a bias audit before using automated employment decision tools. This is to ensure that the decisions made by these algorithms are fair and accurate.
New York City agencies would be required to provide this notice to employees and job applicants when they use these tools, as well as to notify affected individuals of the breach. This law also amends the City’s data breach notification laws to align them with State law.
