FREE THANKSGIVING HELP
No family should be without a turkey on Thanksgiving. Some of you are still struggling to make ends meet in low paying jobs. If you are in that situation our hearts go out to you. Therefore, if you are a subscriber to our Newsletter and cannot afford a turkey dinner for your family call us at 412-281-8700. We will work something out to help. I have been personally amazed over the years that only people who genuinely need help at this time of the year actually call for it. That says a lot about you readers!
WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU OUR CLIENTS
Whenever we settle a case, if it is practical, we ask our clients to come into our office to pick up their checks. The reason for that is two-fold. 1st we have found that checks often get lost in the mail when they are mailed out. 2nd we need client feedback about how we are doing and how we can do better. One recent suggestion from a client was more communication on the status of her case. This is a problem for not just our office but for all law firms. We hopefully are doing OK compared to most other law firms but there is obviously a lot of room for improvement. We are trying!
WHAT’S NEW AT THE TULLY FIRM
Auto Law Update – Last week Michael attended a legal education course on updates concerning auto accidents and personal injury matters. The goal for us is to keep current on any case that can help you our clients with your claims.
HAVE ANY OF YOU BEEN ABLE TO WATCH MY YOUTUBE VIDEOS CONCERNING INJURY LAW AND CAR ACCIDENTS?
If you have not, can you look me up on YouTube and watch a few of them? There might even be something in there that is of value to you.
We recently went to a Meet the Judges luncheon at the Duquesne Club. High class indeed. Boy if my mom could have seen me there, a local kid sitting where Prince Charles once ate. Anyway, it was a great chance to meet Judges outside the courtroom and talk to them about things unrelated to the law. It helps with understanding they are just people like everyone else and have the same problems as we all do.
WHAT DOES BERNIE TULLY HAVE TO BE GRATEFUL FOR AT WORK?
Like our dedicated staff of co-workers. They are really the engine that makes the whole operation work. I am so lucky to have Mary, Denise, Pam and Michael as part of our team, and Angie who does our bookkeeping. I truly am blessed.
AD ASTRA MOVIE
Did you see the movie Ad Astra with Brad Pitt?
We did last month. Most people believe that with reported UFO sightings etc. that there are other beings out there somewhere in the cosmos. But what if we are wrong? What if we are the only beings in the universe? Holly Molly!
THE STATE OF THE PITTSBURGH PIRATES
In a word: yuck.
The owner of
the Pirates isn’t concerned about how the team fares but he does care about the almighty $$. What is the solution? The only way to force the Pirate’s owner to change is not to attend games or watch them on television. What is your opinion?
Boy what a roller coaster year this has been.
Big Ben gets knocked out for the season and we were down at one point to our third string quarterback as the starter. As of this writing, the Duck has done pretty well. Also, Rudolph has a lot of potential. Sure hope we make the playoffs this year!
The Penguins have a heck of a lot of fans in Pittsburgh and elsewhere. How do you think they are going to end up this year? Have you attended any games?
DID YOU KNOW DEPARTMENT
Did you ever feel tired after your turkey dinner? Well it turns out it is not just you. There is something in the turkey meat itself that helps to induce drowsiness. So just enjoy it and the day everyone. That’s what it is all about.

JOKE OF THE MONTH
Why do actors say “Break A Leg” for good luck?
Answer: Because they are all in the cast! (Cast, get it – LOL)
WORD OF THE MONTH
Persnickety: Adjective. It means finicky or very particular. “The attorney was very persnickety about where I fell.”
Try to be so kind that even your funeral director will be sad to see you die!
Your friend and lawyer,
