LawMatters- September 2017

For people throughout the United States, the past month has been a lesson in preparing for the uncertain. Hurricanes Harvey and Irma devastated population centers in Florida and Texas, leaving many uninsured homeowners and business owners with little recourse to pick up the pieces. Recent high-profile cyber attacks and data breaches—including the Equifax breach, which may have compromised the data of 143 million consumers—illustrate the ever-intensifying need for cybersecurity awareness. At the same time, the current legislative and political maneuvering in Washington, DC has many Americans unsure about the future of health care, homeland security, taxes, wages, and more. The attorneys at Offit Kurman are experienced in all of these legal matters, and we are dedicated to helping our clients navigate these myriad uncertainties and effectively plan ahead for success.
