When people ask me what I specialize in, I tell them, suing banks, then after they chuckle, I tell them really our law firm is about “Fresh Starts.”
During the most challenging times in my life, I have found that immersion and engagement in the arts has been not only a source of escape and diversion, but has often been the source of inspiration for overcoming those challenges.
Many of our clients at the Dann Law Firm are facing significant difficulties in their lives.
Some are facing the prospect of losing their home or business. Others have been victimized by lenders, debt collectors or mortgage loan servicers who refuse to follow the law. Still others have suffered financial setbacks that have caused them to have to reorganize through bankruptcy.
Most people come to us at one of the worst moments in their lives.
We are a law firm first and foremost and clients come to us to develop state of the art legal strategies. But to do that we also must help our clients develop a vision and a game plan for a better future for themselves, their businesses and their families. Only then are we able to build a cutting edge legal strategy around that vision.
That is why we are so proud to announce that we are partnering with one of the most exciting arts institutions in Ohio, the Cleveland International Film Festival that opens this week for an 11-day run throughout Northeast Ohio by sponsoring the showing of the movie Christmas, Again. The movie will be shown on Thursday March 19 at 7:20 p.m. at Tower City Cinema and again on Friday March 20 at 2:20 p.m.
Christmas, Again is a movie about an entrepreneur who runs a Christmas tree stand in New York and is forced to start over in his life on many levels. Like many of our clients, the characters face increasing economic injustice and, also like many of our clients, demonstrate determination to overcome the roadblocks placed in front of them.
Like many of the films that have inspired me at the Cleveland Film Festival in past years, I hope that this film will inspire others as well.
Clients and friends of The Dann Law Firm can obtain a $2.00 discount on advance purchase tickets to any Cleveland Film Festival movie by typing DANN as the promo code when checking out from the Film Festival Website. My wife Kathy and I will spend several evenings and most weekends enjoying dozens of films at the festival this year.
I hope many of you will join us.
