Education Attorneys Secured Over 1.5 Million Dollars This Year


  

 

Each year, Georgia conducts an audit known as the “sales ratio study,” which has a significant impact on the funding for local school systems.  This year, by navigating the administrative appeal process, attorneys Grant McBride, Priya Patel, and Brandon Palmer helped five different school systems increase their educational funding by a combined total of $1.5 million dollars.*

Quality education requires adequate funding. The ratio study appeal process allows Smith, Welch, Webb and White to be a voice for the school systems to ensure they are financially able to retain experienced teachers, hire new teachers and expand student programs to benefit the children in our community.

Potential Legal Problems with Drones


The FAA regulates the use of U.S. Airspace and has rules and regulations concerning the use of Unmanned Aircraft Vehicles (UAV).  Due to a sharp rise in the use of UAV, there exists several potential legal issues connected with the use of drones.

Unless the operator has a remote pilot certificate, then Small UAS Rule (Part 107) must be strictly complied with during the entirety of the flight of the UAV, a failure to do so may result in significant civil fines and/or civil action by a private person.

Do You Conceal Carry? Are You a Frequent Flyer?


Have you accidentally carried a firearm through an airport security checkpoint?

 

Picture this – you are running late for your flight, you grab your bag, race to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta, Georgia, run to the security checkpoint, stand in line, you take off your shoes, take off your belt, and throw everything onto the scanner, you walk through the metal detector, you watch your bag go through the scanner and all of a sudden multiple Department of Homeland Security/Transportation Security Administration (“TSA”) agents are huddled around the scanner screen pointing at something in your bag. Uh-oh, panic sets in as you quickly realize what the problem is, in the chaos of trying to make it to the airport, you forgot to take your firearm out of your bag. TSA agents pull you to the side and shortly thereafter you are face to face with law enforcement and your firearm is seized by the FBI. What happens now?

 

Well, if you are carrying a firearm on a regular basis, hopefully you have your concealed carry permit on you otherwise, you may be getting ready to take a trip to Clayton County jail. If you have a concealed carry permit and you are compliant with TSA and law enforcement officials, you may spare yourself an evening behind bars.
