TEEN DRIVERS: NEED DRIVER’S ED? WE WANT TO HELP.

We believe strongly that good driving habits start early. But we also know that quality driver’s education is expensive and burdensome for many New Mexico families.

That’s why we are extremely excited to announce our first web video contest, “I DRIVE SAFE FOR NEW MEXICO!” We will be awarding an ALL-INCLUSIVE DRIVING SCHOOL COURSE at McGinnis School of Driving to the FIVE winners of this contest (a $445.00 value)!

The McGinnis Minimum All-Inclusive Package includes:

— A total of 30 hours of classroom instruction
— A minimum of 7 hours of behind-the-wheel training
–Workbook and other materials to keep and refer to from the classroom participation.
— Certification of Completion for all MVD’s.
— Access to E-Textbook over the course of the Classroom segment

And both the WRITTEN and ROAD portions of the New Mexico Driver’s Examination.

For more details about the McGinnis All-Inclusive Course, click HERE.

We’re looking for five new teenage drivers who are strongly committed to making our roads safer. So we need to hear from YOU about how you are going to commit to safe driving once you become a licensed New Mexico driver! And we want to hear from you in a video!

Entries are limited to new New Mexico drivers (never before licensed in NM or any other state), ages 15-18, who have never previously taken a driver’s education course (either here in NM or in any other state). Your video entry can be anything you’d like–a song, a skit, or just you speaking to the camera. It can be funny, serious, or something in-between. But make it stand out! Make it uniquely YOU.

You must enter at our FACEBOOK PAGE. Click the “I DRIVE SAFE FOR NEW MEXICO!” link in the left sidebar menu. Submit an entry form with your email and contact information, and a link to your video. Videos must be at least one minute long, but cannot be more than two minutes in total length. You can use either youtube or vimeo to upload your video (but not both). NO VINES. Video MUST be at least one minute in length, but no more than two minutes total! ENTRIES USING VINE WILL BE DISQUALIFIED AND DISCARDED.

Limit of ONE ENTRY PER PERSON, please. And, importantly, each entry must have their own video! You can appear in a friend’s entry video if you’d like, but if you want to enter the contest yourself, you have to have your own separate video!

The deadline for submissions is Midnight on April 19th, 2017. After that, we (Eva Blazejewski & Heather Hansen) will review all video submissions and we’ll choose the five winning entries. Entrants will be notified by phone/text and email, on April 25, 2017, and then announced on our Facebook page and here on our website. We’ll also post the winning entries on our Facebook page, here on our website, and on our youtube channel. Once we announce the winners, you’ll be able to sign up for your driver’s ed course and we’ll pay for it!

By submitting a video, please note that you agree to abide by all of Blazejewski & Hansen, LLC’s official rules. You also agree that we may use your video and your likeness in our marketing materials, on our website, and on our social media accounts. DO NOT DO ANYTHING RISKY OR DANGEROUS IN YOUR VIDEO ENTRY. We are not responsible or liable for any harm or damage that comes to you or to others from any actions you undertake in the course of filming your video. And we are very unlikely to declare you a winner if you do something risky or dangerous in your video entry!  For complete official rules, please click HERE.

We are so excited to offer this contest in partnership with the country’s oldest and most respected driving school, McGinnis School of Driving. We strongly support the hard work McGinnis School does to educate our state’s drivers and to make our roads safer. We are committed to doing what we can to help our young people become educated, safe drivers who understand the importance of not texting while driving, not driving drunk, not speeding, and not driving while distracted!

If you have questions about this contest, you can contact us at (505) 554-1660 or via email at heather@blazehansenlaw.com.

How to Hire the Best Lawyer

 

 

 

When people are hurt in a car or motorcycle crash, or because of another kind of negligence, one of the first things they often do to find an attorney is turn to television ads, or to Google or Bing.  They are usually looking to find the  “top Albuquerque personal injury lawyer,” or “Best New Mexico personal injury attorney.”  But are the first search results that pop up in the Google results *really* representative of the “top” or “best”lawyers in New Mexico?

THINGS TO ASK A PROSPECTIVE ATTORNEY

Will you be the one handling my case from beginning to end, or will an associate attorney, paralegal or assistant be handling my case?

Will I be able to reach you on the weekends or after hours if I have an emergency?

Will you help with my property damage claim, or will I be expected to negotiate that part of my case on my own?

If there is limited insurance money available to compensate me for my injuries, will you take more as your fee than I get in my pocket?

How many cases have you personally handled successfully in the last year?

What is your current caseload?  Do you have time to personally handle my case? 

Simply put, the lawyer you see on TV or the first lawyer to pop up in the Google results may not be the best lawyer for your personal injury case.

We believe that every case is different, and each case deserves personal attention. 

In our experience, the best way to hire an attorney to represent you in your personal injury case is to combine your research–utilizing Google searches, word of mouth referrals, yelp reviews, etc.–with a free in-person consultation with each of the law firms you are considering.  Almost all personal injury law firms in New Mexico offer a free in-person consultation.  We strongly suggest you take them up on the offer!  Hiring an attorney to handle your personal injury case is much like hiring a counselor or therapist: it is a trust relationship, and if you don’t feel comfortable with the person handling your case, it doesn’t matter how high in the Google results that lawyer was–you will not be happy with how you are represented.

When you consult with law firms about your personal injury case, take note of who handles your initial consultation.  Are you meeting with the attorney who will be handling your case, or are you meeting with a paralegal or associate?  If you meet with a managing partner, ask if the partner is the one who will be handling your case, or if your case will instead be assigned to an associate attorney or paralegal, and if the answer is “yes,” make sure you ask to meet the person who will actually be handling your case from beginning to end.  You’ll also want to know if you will be expected to handle any portion of the negotiation of your case on your own (like the property damage portion of your claim), and if the attorney working on your case will be accessible after hours in case you have an urgent situation that needs attention.

You should also ask how many cases the attorney assigned to your case has on his or her plate. Make sure that the lawyer has plenty of time to handle your concerns promptly and personally.  An overwhelmed attorney might let things slip through the cracks, and you need to know before you hire a lawyer that they have room on their calendar to take your case on.
