Home Daily News Law firms hire company to send ads to ER… Legal Marketing By Debra Cassens Weiss Posted May 30, 2018, 1:37 pm CDT ESB Professional / Shutterstock.com Some personal injury law firms plan to use a technology called “geofencing” to send ads to cellphones of patients in emergency rooms, pain clinics and chiropractor offices.

And before he held that position, he “roamed the courthouses of New York City,” filing lawsuits on behalf of people injured in auto accidents, according to Rolling Stone. After graduating from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in 1991, Cohen went to work for Melvyn J. Estrin.

Rosenstein, who is overseeing the ongoing special counsel probe.Rosenstein, I told them, may not be the most famous person at the Washington Hilton, but he was perhaps the most powerful, in terms of … [Read more...] about The Daily 202: Rod Rosenstein may just be the most powerful person in Washington
