Litigator Karl Heideck Represents Clients In Various Legal Areas

A litigation attorney in the United States is a lawyer that focuses on representing clients in different types of lawsuits. These can be personal injury cases, business disputes, contract conflicts, and any other type of matter that results in a civil lawsuit.

A litigation attorney can be found working for law firms of different types, at corporations, for different types of organizations and with governmental agencies. Oftentimes, a litigation attorney begins his or her career outside the civil court arena. These individuals may start their careers working for prosecuting attorneys, like a district or state’s attorney. They elect to work for a prosecuting attorney to garner courtroom experience.

A litigation attorney usually begins planning for his or her career as a litigator in law school. While a student, a budding litigation attorney will focus on courses that include courtroom practice, evidence, and civil procedure. A student interested in litigation is also likely to be part of a law school’s legal clinic and moot court programs.

Through a law school legal clinic, a third year law student has the opportunity to represent actual clients while still pursuing a law degree. The law student is supervised by a licensed attorney and has the chance to make courtroom appearances.

Securus Technologies Stays on Top

When a company creates a specialty niche and then dominates it with great business acumen and over-the-top service and customer satisfaction, you know you have a winner and someone who is going to keep it that way. That is the story of Securus Technologies, the giant communications company.


Securus provides communications implementation to corrections institutions, law enforcement groups, and safety organizations amounting to a total of 3,400 clients and over 1.2 million inmates all over the North American continent. Their calling capabilities include communications with iPhones, Androids, tablets and regular landline phone systems.


They have several sophisticated calling plans including direct billing, collect calling, inmate debit plans, where the inmate pays out of his earnings, and prepaid calling. A most popular plan is the new video calling plan, which works well when both callers have a webcam located at either end of the call. Jail voicemail, email, and a money transfer platform are also available.


A recent explosion of bad press and just mountains of lying information has spewed out from competitor GTL, a medium-sized, regional communications company. GTL has claimed that their pricing and service are light years better than Securus, and their claims sound like Grimm’s Fairy Tales from the Twilight Zone. When comparing actual figures, which Securus has, there is no comparison.


Securus decided to end the foolishness, so they challenged GTL to a public comparison of metrics with a disinterested third party judge would preside and give the final answer publicly as to whose facts and figures were correct. When the challenge was announced, the silence coming from the other side was overwhelming. For a few weeks, this went on until finally GTL meekly declined the invitation to the challenge.


It would be impossible for a company of the size of Securus to maintain its overall rates of customer satisfaction and continued growth if anything that GTL had said was true. In business, the truth will always win, and there is nothing more to say.


Celebrities and the Growth of the LA Kabbalah Centre

The Los Angeles Kabbalah Centre is known for attracting celebrities of different types in recent years. Perhaps the best-known celebrity associated with the Kabbalah Centre is Madonna. Not only does Madonna obtain Kabbalah instruction from the Kabbalah Centre, she is also a major financial supporter. In addition, she has been instrumental in starting Kabbalah Centre branches in other locations.

Paris Hilton and Sandra Bernhard are two other celebrities with connections to the LA Kabbalah Centre. Hilton credits the Kabbalah Centre with keeping her life balanced. This includes even during those times in which she has faced particular challenges, including when her relationship ended with Nick Carter.

There are other famous Hollywood stars who have had connections with the practice of Kabbalah in the past. These include Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, and Sammy Davis, Jr.

The LA Kabbalah Centre opened its doors in the city in 1984. Since that time, it has significantly expanded its outreach.

At the present time, there are over 50 branch centers connected to the LA Kabbalah Centre. These include branches in major cities like Toronto, New York, and London.

In addition to the growth in branches, there has been a marked increase in the number of Kabbalah study groups associated with the LA Kabbalah Centre as well. In addition, a person can access Kabbalah Centre courses online through a variety of instructional courses and other programs.

The LA Kabbalah Centre is set apart from most other Kabbalah organizations because it allows for easier access to its instruction. Unlike most other Kabbalah organizations, the Kabbalah Centre does not require a person seeking access to training and instruction to have a background in Jewish and Hebrew writings. This has resulted in the study and practice of Kabbalah being made more widely available to people around the world, and from all walks of life.
