Each year, Hollywood residents are exposed to hacks, scams, and other threats online. In some cases, such as identity theft, victims may have recourse to the criminal justice system. In other situations, those affected choose to pursue legal claims.

Fraudsters can gain access to very personal information from victims, can clear out bank accounts, can ruin credit ratings, and more. The effects of such crimes often include immense stress, financial hardship and even family problems.

Children have a fascination with water and have less developed swimming skills, which can make them especially prone to pool injuries and drownings.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
