"Legally Speaking," is a legal radio talk show airing on WPNV AM 1440 and hosted by the attorneys of Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg and Gifford, a law firm located in Lansdale, Pennsylvania. WNPV 1440 AM serves listeners in Montgomery and Bucks counties.
The topics aired on "Legally Speaking" in August involved matters near and dear to the hosts of the shows. From family law questions to upcoming elections, the hosts covered a range of topics.
Family law attorney Amy Stern hosted a discussion of family law topics with summer law clerks Audra Price and Tom Phelan. Stern addressed questions about Pennsylvania's no-fault divorce laws, alimony, and asset division, under what circumstances that pensions and inheritances might be divided during a divorce, as well as the duties of parents to provide child support for their children.
Lawyer Matt Wilkov was joined by Tom Phelan and Audra Price to discuss current legal events in Pennsylvania and the nation. The forum was focused on questions involving government surveillance of suspects, privacy laws and searches and seizures. They also discussed topics in employment law including an on-going age discrimination case against Google.
Attorneys Marc Steinberg and Bill Moore discussed a potpourri of topics including the Rod Blagojevich trial, and a teaching experience with sixth graders in Norristown about important protections in the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. Steinberg and Moore also discussed various options for judicial elections such as selecting judicial nominees by legal peers or by a judicial selection commission.
In the final radio show of the month, lawyer Kevin Regan invited Todd Stephens, the Republican candidate for State Representative from the 151st District to discuss his campaign. The pair focused on parts of Stephens' campaign platform including fixing the Pennsylvania budget deficit and unemployment.
