    Torgenson Law and “Jagger” Wish You a Happy and Safe Fourth of July

    July 2, 2015

    On April 16th, Torgenson Law was invited to take a corporate tour at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Silvia Capir and Tim Harrison of the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation escorted John Torgenson, Dan DiLizia, and Valerie Ramirez throughout the hospital. They toured various areas of the hospitals, spoke with staff, and learned about what it takes to maintain the hospital. They also learned about the goals the hospital has in the near future such as a new Emergency Department and a Level 1 Trauma Center. Simply put, the hospital is nothing short of amazing, and it would be difficult to explain all the ways that it impacts our community’s children and their families.

    7 Reasons To Be Skeptical that Sheriff Joe Arpaio Is “Protecting The Public” this Weekend. –- Arpaio “Dispatching” His “Posse” To Black Churches? Number 7 Is Absolutely Irresponsible…

    June 19, 2015

    Context is everything. Sheriff Joe is “dispatching” his “posse” across the valley to historically black churches to protect them from violence this weekend. There have been no explicit threats against any of the churches. You have to ask yourself, what is Arpaio’s true motivation? If his sole motivation was to protect the churches, would he have disclosed the details of his plan to the local media? When determining for yourself whether Sheriff Joe’s motivations are honest or political, consider the following list of seven other times that Sheriff Joe advertised that he was “protecting the public.”

  • Unchain Dog Arizona

    Unchain Dog Arizona

    June 18, 2015

    Arizona summers are not only harsh for the valley’s four million residents, but also for our four-legged friends. Dog owners, especially those that keep their animals tethered outside, must be mindful about exposing their pets to the heat. Chaining or tethering of a pet is a practice commonly used by pet owners to exercise control of their animals, where the pet is tied-up to a stationary object, like a fence post or flag pole. Most people do not realize that keeping their dogs outside during the summer is a form of animal abuse. Neither local Phoenix ordinances nor the State of Arizona have any laws prohibiting chaining or tethering.

  • How Does Being A Loyal Customer Cost You Money On Your Car Insurance?!

    How Does Being A Loyal Customer Cost You Money On Your Car Insurance?!

    May 17, 2015

    Insurance companies are actively exploiting your customer loyalty to charge you more money on your car insurance rates. Yep. It is happening. “Price-optimization” is what the term that the pro-insurance-industry-think-tank generated to fool you into thinking it is a good, optimal thing. What it really means is that insurance companies are buying your personal data, combing through your Facebook and Instagram feeds, calculating how they can shake you down for some more cash because of your loyalty. Have you lived in the same house for several years? Sucker. Do you like to buy your coffee from the same local coffee shop every morning, loyally handing over your hard-earned money for a locally brewed fresh cup? Gullible.
