Remedy for an Ailing Civil Justice System: Preventive Legal Care 14.1.2015 American Prospect
(iStockPhoto/© bbbrrn) We’ve come to recognize the value of preventive medicine as a society. We know that patients do better and our government saves money when people get annual check-ups and screenings, diabetics have access to regular treatment and women receive proper prenatal care, so that we are able to avoid the costly and sometimes deadly issues that arise if we wait until they arrive in the emergency room. What would it look like if we took the same approach for legal help? What if we recognized that people are more likely to be able to stay in their homes if they have access to adequate legal assistance for wrongful evictions or foreclosures, rather than spending millions of taxpayer dollars on shelters once people have lost their homes and have nowhere else to turn? In Massachusetts, the Boston Bar Association (BBA), which I currently lead, recently released a  Task Force report  that shows that taking a preventive approach to legal issues, in the same way we do for public health, would help ...

Demand for Steamboat rentals driving up prices 19.10.2014 Steamboat Pilot
A year ago, the Steamboat Pilot & Today's classifieds section listed a one-bedroom apartment available for $700 per month, a two-bedroom for $1,150 and a three-bedroom, two-bath home for $1,550. The prices weren't rare finds but representative of 40 other listings, including those at Mountain Village and large complexes across town. The rental landscape today is far bleaker for the prospective tenant, and last Sunday only six properties were listed for rent in Steamboat — including one-bedrooms for $800 and $1,200 apiece, two-bedrooms for $1,400 and $1,600 and high-end three- and four-bedrooms for $3,000 and $2,150 each. While the classifieds represent a random sampling of properties that may be changing renters at a given time, the numbers are on par with statistics collected by the state from complex managers in Steamboat earlier this year. “It's a classic supply-and-demand scenario. Demand is exceeding supply, and therefore your price goes up,” said Jason Peasley, executive director of the Yampa ...
