Our sincere congratulations to attorney Melinda Dellarose who was sworn in today as the new first administrative assistant district attorney for Fayette County. Melinda has been a part of the Davis & Davis Attorneys At Law for the last 19 years — first working as an office clerk while in college, then a law clerk during law school, then finally joining us as an associate after she passed the bar. We have watched her become a very professional, well-respected member of our legal community and wish her great success as she starts her new position with the District Attorney's Office.

Thank you to everyone who voted in the Community Choice Awards. We were again named the best law firm. In 2016, we will be celebrating 40 years in practice. When we started this firm, our goal was to provide the best representation we could to our clients as we helped guide them through their legal issues. And 40 years later, that goal is still the same. While we greatly appreciate the accolades and awards, we're even more appreciative of our clients, friends and family who have supported and trusted our firm with their important legal matters.

There are changes being made to the mortgage loan closing process which become effective Oct. 3rd.

One of the terms you may see or hear about is the "Best Practices." According to ALTA, Best Practices are the benchmark for the real estate settlement and mortgage lending industries. They illuminate the high level of professionalism that ALTA members follow to protect consumers and business in the real estate and mortgage settlement.
Following Best Practices is voluntary. Settlement agents are not required to follow the policies and procedures suggested by ALTA.

Davis & Davis Attorneys At Law has chosen to voluntarily follow the procedures outlined by ALTA. Over the course of several months, our staff has watched dozens of webinars and spent hours developing our Best Practice Manual of policies and procedures. We have upgraded our email system to send secure messages, upgraded our real estate closing software to the most current versions, have had training on preparation of the new closing disclosure forms, and provided copies of our Best Practices Manual to all lenders who have requested it.

When the new regulations become effective, you may find that your lender will only recommend settlement agents that follow Best Practices. Which is why we have voluntarily established the Best Practices Policy at our firm. We have been the settlement agent for thousands of mortgage closings during the 40 years we've been in business. We made the investment of time and money so we can continue helping those investing in our community when they purchase or refinance a home.

  • We live in a time when motor vehicle recalls occur almost daily. Over the past five years, 10 million vehicles have been recalled due to defective air bags alone. This staggering number represents only a small percentage of the overall number of vehicles recalled for various types of problems.
  • Perhaps the most publicized recall involves the "defective ignition switches" on General Motors' vehicles. It is estimated that over 3,350,000 vehicles were recalled as a result of this defect.
  • Of course some recalls do not deal directly with defects that threaten consumer safety. However, the air bag and ignition switch defects caused many fatalities and serious injuries.
  • What has brought the automobile industry to this state? Perhaps no one can specifically answer that question or provide a full list of reasons. The problem may lie with faulty design, sloppy management, employee negligence, poor employee supervision and inadequate quality control. Most likely, improvement is necessary in all of these areas. Until such time as that, all motorists will remain at risk.
  • Recalls may be an effective tool to correct some problems but it is prevention and proper product production which must be the goal of all motor vehicle manufacturing. The consuming public must demand defect free motor vehicles. The automobile manufacturers must be held accountable when they produce and sell to an unwitting consumer a defective product. This is particularly so when the dangerously defective product is likely to cause death or serious bodily injury to the consumer. Legislation holding the automobile industry accountable to the families of the victims and the injured themselves is the only way to ensure that the automobile industry will not continue to manufacture dangerously defective vehicles.

    Charges against Uniontown businessman dismissed
  • July 6, 2011
    On July 2, 2012, Fayette County Court of Common Pleas Judge Ralph C. Warman officially retired. He was greeted by family, friends and colleagues with a surprise luncheon in the Courthouse Gray Room. As he entered the room to resounding applause, I could not help but think back to the very first day I met him. Both of us were young assistant district attorney's eager to become successful prosecutors and trial lawyers. From the moment we met, he impressed me with his ingratiating smile and warm gestures. I soon came to realize that he was something special. In those years as assistant district attorney no one worked any harder or provided more support to the staff than Ralph Warman. If you were in the middle of a trial and needed some quick research, the next thing you knew he was handing you a case on point. If you had to interview a witness at 2:00 A.M. during the middle of a homicide trial, he would go along with you. He rose through the ranks of the district attorneys' office under the direction of then district attorney, and now president Judge Gerald R. Solomon, and was eventually elected district attorney. Prosecutors and defense attorneys alike would all agree he did an outstanding job as Fayette County's district attorney.

His ascension to the bench seemed to be part of a natural progression and he embraced his role as a Fayette County judge with the same energy, devotion and discipline that enabled him to be an outstanding prosecutor.

Ralph, the son of Ruth and Myron Warman, is a member of a proud and distinguished Fayette County family, a family known to place service over self. Ralph continued that family tradition of public service in his years as Fayette County district attorney and judge.

There are many words one might use to describe him, such as intelligent, articulate, diligent, energetic, fair and honest, but the word I would use is honorable. Judge Warman is and has always been, an honorable man. At the time when so many public officials lack honor and as a result are held in low esteem by the public, Judge Warman has always been the most honorable person I have ever known. We can only hope that his successor is possessed with the same characteristics that made Judge Warman so successful. We can only hope that his successor will be honorable. Judge Warman's legacy, a legacy of honor, will be difficult, if not impossible, to replicate.
