December 2016 - This Holiday Season, Focus on Safety

Woman lifting bags Robberies and vehicle thefts are two of the 10 most common crimes committed around the holidays. It’s no wonder. We’re rushed, preoccupied and often let our guard down. Thieves can be smart – we need to be smarter.

While at the mall ...

... Shop with friends, if possible. Don’t wear expensive jewelry or restrictive clothes or shoes. Take only the credit cards and cash you’ll need.

Purchase only what you can safely carry. Combine small packages into larger bags for easier handling. Don’t block your field of vision and keep a hand free to open your car.

Avoid revolving doors because, with good timing, a thief can easily grab your bag and get away before you get through the door.

Stay away from darkened hallways and empty wings – including restrooms that may be located there, especially near closing time.

Save your expensive purchases until the end so you can go straight home.

While in your car ...

... Make a note of where you park and park close to the entrance when possible. Otherwise, park in a well-lit area near a busy roadway. Stay away from large vehicles; thieves use these as cover. Lock your doors and windows, close your sunroof and take your keys!

Secure valuables in your trunk or locked glove compartment. If you need to unload some packages before you finish shopping, move your car to a new spot to throw off anyone who may be watching.

When shopping alone and leaving the mall, walk with another group of shoppers if you can when returning to your car. Look around your car and in the back seat before entering.

More precious than any purchase is our children. Never leave children alone in the car no matter how quick you think you’ll be. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children tells us 100,000 children are abducted each year, many from stores and shopping centers. Don’t take the chance.

Please be safe and have a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a Happy, Healthy New Year!

The absolute BEST!!! I have a family of attorneys but needed someone local. Victor was recommended to me and words cannot describe how pleased I was with his firm. The outstanding service and attention each member of his staff gave to me surpassed any and all expectations. Victor surrounds himself with a hardworking team that he leads. I felt it was money spent wisely. I will continue to recommend Victor and his associates.

Mr. Rotolo has helped me numerous times in legal matters and has continued to support and help me through countless hardships. He is dedicated to providing the best service and is a true professional. I will continue to consult with him regarding any legal issues in the future. He is a respectable, hardworking, kind hearted man and I would recommend his legal services to anyone.

I am an attorney and have practiced law for 26 years. I hired Vic to handle a very difficult family matter because I do not handle family law. Vic was extremely competent and obtained a result far beyond my expectations. Without his counsel my son's and family's life would have been changed forever. Thank you Vic for your good lawyering. I very much appreciate the personal attention and time dedicated to this matter. I highly recommend Vic.

We recently had a situation where we needed to hire an attorney. We selected Rotolo Law Firm and I can honestly say that we were above and beyond satisfied with Vic and his team. We would absolutely recommend this firm to anyone should the need arise. We blindly picked the firm out of the phone book because I liked his ad. Now I believe that God was pointing us in the right direction. Thank you Vic and the Rotolo Law Firm for being there for us in our time of need.

Victor's expertise, due diligence, and empathy for his client made my first experience with the law (and last) a non-stressful one. Before the case, I did my research and looked over about 20 lawyers before choosing Victor. All my sources pointed to him as the best and they weren't off even a bit. Victor treated my case like it was his own and kept me up to date with all my appointments, breakthroughs in the case, and guided me step through step in a process that I never thought that I had to come to endure. If Victor's not available Susy will go out of her way to take care you. The productivity and efficiency in that office is second to none. Thank you Victor!
