The Artists of the Law Offices of Matthew Dubin

When you spend as much time in one place as we do in our offices, you want to make sure it's a pleasant environment. Everything contributes to a comfortable and happy workplace - the furniture, the temperature, the view. Perhaps nothing is as important or as overlooked as the artwork in the office. Over the years, I have found that the right artwork can truly change the feel of a workspace - transforming it from a box with desks and computers to a living gallery that stimulates the mind and encourages creative thought, collaboration and a general feeling of well-being.

According to the American Automobile Association, nearly 42 million Americans are expected to travel 50 miles or more over the Independence Day holiday weekend. As people across Seattle and the nation celebrate Independence Day, the likelihood of impaired drivers on the roads also increases. In fact, in 2010, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimated that more than 10,000 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving accidents. In general, every driver has an on-going duty to obey traffic laws, be attentive and exercise caution on the roadways. Despite all the precautions a driver may take, accidents resulting from the negligence of another driver still happen.
