Happy National Law Day!
On May 1 of each year, we celebrate our American legal process and its direct contribution to citizens’ freedoms in our democratic republic. We recognize the critical role of our judicial system, as well as the importance of jury duty in maintaining the integrity of the courts in our country.
Why May 1? Interestingly in history during our Cold War with the USSR, the Soviets held a parade every May 1 to display their weapons and rule by force. In contrast, Congress in 1961 designated May 1 in our United States of America National Law Day to send a message to the world that we are a nation where we rule by laws, made by citizens to achieve justice and secure freedom.
Zarco Einhorn Salkowski & Brito, P.A. stands proud to help our clients (business owners, franchisees, franchisee associations, dealerships, and more) achieve justice for over 30 years by leveling the playing field against their larger adversaries in legal commercial disputes and negotiations, and providing an affordable key to the courthouse when necessary.
