at said parties. Too many people make bad decisions at these parties, choosing to indulge in a few drinks before getting behind the wheel of their car. Until the day a “Star Trek” style transporter is installed in every home, there’s no way to avoid driving during all of winter. But you can practice defensive driving techniques to help keep you and your passengers safe. A few of these strategies include the following: • Obey all the rules of the road, especially speed limits. • Don’t let yourself be distracted, and keep your attention on the road. • Watch and respect the other drivers on the road. • Maintain a safe following distance. • Don’t drive when you are drowsy or when you have had anything to drink. We should all do our part to make our roads a little safer this winter. If you have been injured in a vehicle accident, don’t hesitate to give us a call at (239) 646-8050. The holidays are stressful enough without worrying about fighting the insurance companies alone to get the compensation you deserve.

Avvo collects publicly available information from the state bar and other organizations to create a rating on a scale of 1 (extreme caution) to 10 (superb). The Avvo rating is not based on client reviews and is, instead, determined by three principles: • Experience—How long have they been in practice? • Recognition—How is the attorney viewed by their peers and their community? • Ethics—What does their disciplinary record look like? Prospective clients can use the Avvo rating to learn about their attorney’s reputation without digging through years of records. It is incredibly difficult for an attorney to receive a perfect 10 rating on Avvo. The exact calculations done to determine attorney ratings are kept secret and with good reason. Avvo is meant to be an independent system. Attorneys have no control over their rating. It doesn’t matter if a lawyer advertises on Avvo or if they spring for a premiummembership. They cannot buy a better rating. Avvo will even launch an investigation if they suspect the information listed on an attorney’s profile is incorrect. It is reassuring to see the efforts of our firm reflected in a superb rating. That 10 is a promise that clients can expect the highest level of knowledge, experience, and professional conduct when hiring the LawOffices of Marc L. Shapiro, PA. Word Search
