& N e w l

Inmany ways, Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin is a family law firm. Not only have we worked with somany local families, our firm is also very much a family, too. Just take it fromWilliam Tanoos and Anthony Tanoos II!

And on the challenges…

WilliamTanoos: There’s always friendly family rivalry and competition, but in the end, it pushes us to always do better and improve.

On their experience working with family…

WilliamTanoos: It’s a great benefit to be able to work with family. Working with those you are closest to and who share your values ensures a positive environment for all involved. In turn, that positive support system carries over to our clients so they are treated with the value they deserve.

AnthonyTanoos II: My experience working and growing up around it has been a great one. I feel very fortunate to have this experience!

AnthonyTanoos II: There aren’t a lot of

challenges that come to mind when working in a family firm. Family is so important, and a lot of people have

On the strengths that come with working with family…

WilliamTanoos: When working with family, you feel free to ask questions or give advice that might otherwise be hard to do, like when working around those you’re not close with. We are able to better our firm through our shared experiences. Also, sometimes you just have a bad day at work, and it’s nice to be able to lean on family when you need it. AnthonyTanoos II: Several strengths come fromworking with family. For instance, one that immediately comes to mind is that I always feel comfortable asking legal questions to another associate attorney or partner of the law firm. In other words, I know they always have my best interests at heart, and this keeps my mind more at ease. The rest of the staff here at FSTN are great and knowledgeable in their roles, and I believe the family culture we have here at the firm strengthens everyone else’s roles, whether they’re an attorney or not.

issues that come up in their family life. The law firm understands this and has been as accommodating as they can be when dealing with any of these related issues. If I could think of one challenge — albeit a small one — it’s that family, in its real sense, can cause drama between its members because they feel comfortable enough to tell each other how they really feel. This can be the same challenge with a family-firm culture. However, this can be looked at as a benefit, too, because it’s good to feel comfortable with each other and not hold things in, and therefore, a solution can be found.

And on family outside of the office…

WilliamTanoos: I’m proud to work with my family and to see others in the firm do the same. There’s great pride in that, and you feel it in the community.

AnthonyTanoos II: The benefit of working at a family firm is that you bring less stress from a day’s work with you back home. I enjoy watching staff members at FSTN get along and actually enjoy their work at the office. When people bring some enthusiasm to the office, they go home with enthusiasm because work doesn’t seem like“work”as much when you have a family-firm culture like we do at FSTN.

Our referrals continue to be one of the best ways clients find us, and we deeply appreciate it! for your trust and confidence. Thank you

A new school year is a prime opportunity for kids to make new friends among their classmates. Unfortunately, kids also form connections during the school year that aren’t always positive, and many children become the targets of school bullies. If you suspect your child is being bullied, there are a few things you can do to help. Know the Signs Kids usually don’t open up about being bullied right away. However, there are some common signs that your children are being harassed. Here are a few of them: If they’re refusing to go to school or ride the bus, they may be dreading their bully. If they’re rushing to the bathroom after school, it may indicate that they’re being bullied in the bathroom, which is a common tactic bullies use to avoid teachers. If their grades suddenly change, it may be the result of constant harassment. • • •

Anxious or depressed moods can be the result of bullying as well.

If you spot one or more of these signs, it’s time to talk to your child about what’s happening to them at school. Listen When your child does open up, the best thing you can do is listen. It can be tempting to try to give him advice or question the way he handled the situation, but doing this can give your child the impression that it’s his own fault he is being bullied. Let him tell you the whole story, without judgment, and then help him come up with ideas on what to do next. Finding the Right Solution Once you’ve been informed that your child is being bullied, you should inform teachers as soon as possible. Apart from that, there are several ways you can help your child to deal with bullies, so talk to him An average of six million car accidents occur in the U.S. every year, and distraction was reported as a factor in nearly 1 in 5 crashes that ended in injury. But distracted driving includes more than just using your cellphone. Could turning on the radio or plugging in a playlist also cause car accidents? Research into the topic shows some interesting results. The Case for MusicWhile Driving You may know that listening to music can improve your mood and lower your stress levels, and research backs this up. When traffic is bad enough to induce road rage, music may help prevent accidents caused by angry and upset drivers making mistakes they otherwise wouldn’t. Listening to music can also be a huge benefit on long road trips. It increases your heart rate, which keeps you alert and awake. It may also improve concentration; studies show that drivers who listen to music are better at driving within the lines and matching the speed of the vehicles in front of them than those who drive without music. The Case Against MusicWhile Driving Listening to music you love can serve as a distraction if you love it too much. The brain may switch primary tasks from driving with music as background noise to actively listening to music with driving becoming secondary. This is especially true for younger and less

experienced drivers, and it may result in errors like speeding, forgetting to signal, or failing to check blind spots before turning or changing lanes. Some research suggests the brain may also have difficulty looking away from the source of a noise. You may have experienced this if you’ve ever turned your head in response to a door opening, for example. In this case, you may be tempted to look at the radio display rather than the road. What to Listen to onYour Next Commute We’ve learned that music increases your heart rate, which is a great way to stay awake, but drivers may be tempted to match their speed to the tempo of the songs they’re listening to. So, music playing at 120 beats per minute (BPM) or more can cause drivers to subconsciously speed. Researchers suggest listening to music between 60–80 BPMwhile in the car because it closely matches a resting heart rate. When you’ve been injured in a car accident, call Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin. Car accidents can be devastating, especially when they result in serious injury. If you’ve been involved in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, we want to fight for your right to compensation.

Stay Toned by Lifting Weights at Home

Stay Toned by Lifting Weights at Home

The Anti-Aging Benefits of Free Weights

In her best-selling lifestyle guide “French Women Don’t Get Fat,”Mireille Guiliano advises women in their 50s to invest in a set of free weights — nothing too heavy, perhaps 3–5 pounds — in order to maintain their toned, youthful appearance and range of motion. She notes that lifting weights isn’t entirely necessary during your 20s and 30s, but it’s essential to maintain muscle tone and bone density in your later years. Though Guiliano’s evidence is anecdotal, the science confirms that lifting weights can be an indispensable aid to healthy aging for both men and women. A study published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information recommends strength training 2–3 times per week to lower your risk of health problems and preserve bone density, independence, and vitality. According to WebMD, “Muscle loss is one of the main reasons people feel less energetic as they get older. When you lift weights, work out on machines, use resistance bands, or do exercises with your own body weight (like pushups and situps), you build strength, muscle mass, and flexibility.” You don’t have to join a gym to reap the benefits though; just pick up a set of free weights and a resistance band and research how to safely use them in your own home. Bodybuilding.com recommends designing a workout routine that includes one or two exercises for each of the major muscle groups: legs, back,

shoulders, arms, chest, and abs. Try 8–10 repetitions per set, but don’t push yourself to use heavy weights. Even options that are 10 pounds or less should be enough to keep you chasing after your grandchildren for years to come. One public figure who has taken the weightlifting creed to heart is Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The documentary “RBG” shows the 86-year-old judge at the gym, pumping lightweight iron with her personal trainer, and she

even walked spring chicken Stephen Colbert through her routine on “The Late Show.” Ginsburg has called her trainer “the most important person” in her life apart from her family, which is a ringing endorsement for lifting weights if ever there was one.
