A criminal defense and family law attorney and Partner at Andersen, Tate & Carr, P.C., Trinity discussed the case of little Alexa Linboom, a 5-year old Tennessee girl who was forced to guzzle the grape soda and water after she took “one or two grape drinks” that belonged to her stepmother.  She was allegedly force-fed so much liquid that it caused the sodium level in her body to go down and caused her brain to swell.  She died as a result.

Trinity also discussed a case involving Sick Kids Hospital of Toronto, who allegedly overdosed a teenage boy with 7 drugs in 7 hours.  These drugs were nearly life threatening and were given without any prior testing or blood work completed by the hospital and despite objections by the boys’ parents.

Trinity Hundredmark Appears as Legal Analyst Discussing “Banning the Box”

HundredmarkTrinity Hundredmark recently appeared as a legal analyst on Cavuto on the Fox Business Network.   Trinity discussed an administrative order issued by  Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn “banning the box” on applications for state government jobs. Pursuant to the order, state government job applicants with criminal histories will no longer have to check a box disclosing that they have been convicted of, or pled guilty to, a crime.  Trinity explained that by removing the box, every individual gets a fair opportunity to make a first impression and stand on their job qualifications, at least initially.

ATC’s Gwinnett Great Days of Service Project

Our project was to help transform the courtyard landscaping at the Gwinnett Extended Care facility in Lawrenceville.  We assisted with tilling and de-weeding the beds around the perimeter of the courtyard, to make healthy planting areas for a new herb and vegetable garden.  We also planted some berry bushes and olive trees.  We turned the soil with top soil and other nutrients during the preparation phase.  Once all the plantings were in, we covered and mulched the beds, and gave them all a good watering.

It was such a beautiful day for this kind of work, and the facility residents were so  happy to see the new courtyard plantings.  They also enjoy bird watching and they have many butterfly bushes so they can enjoy the variety of butterflies in the area.

WP_20131004_002Just a wonderful day, doing good deeds for some very special people.  Many thanks to Mary Jane O’Neal for organizing the event for the firm, and to Tom Tate, Melanie O’Dowd, Jenn Leyes, Vea Scollan, Liz Clack-Freeman, Tyler Dillard, and Gray Brantley for putting so much hard work in!

Patrick J. McDonough Appears as Legal Analyst on Fox News

2948701_1[1]Patrick J. McDonough has appeared on Fox News as one of their Atlanta based legal analysts.  Recently on Fox News,  McDonough spoke on the issues surrounding revenge pornography.   McDonough explained how currently there are civil remedies for victims, but that can be a costly endeavor and not available to most victims. McDonough did note the trend is for states to criminalize this behavior.  First amendment advocates will surely challenge these statutes, but McDonough believes if the statutes are drafted narrowly they should withstand Supreme Court scrutiny.  McDonough said the lesson is twofold: first, one should not take any uncompromising pictures of themselves and send them to current partners, and second, jaded ex-partners should think twice before posting these images.
