Dealing With Domestic Violence? FindLaw Offers Many Resources

It's almost October, which is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

We know -- every month is a "special" month nowadays, but with the recent Ray Rice scandal and the National Football League's stutter-step response, the issue is more timely and relevant than ever. Perhaps the best thing to come from the four suspensions, the leaked videos, and the outrage will be more awareness of a problem that is far too often often kept behind closed doors.

Here at FindLaw, we have a number of domestic violence resources that victims and advocates may find particularly helpful:

You probably already knew this, but we have a pretty good idea of what our users are searching for. Sure, it's a little creepy when Google knows your question before you even type it into the box. We don't get that personal, but we do pay attention to frequently searched terms in order to better understand -- and serve -- your needs.

Since today is Constitution Day, we thought we'd share the Top 5 FindLaw.com search terms related to the U.S. Constitution. You'll also find valuable resources for each topic listed below, but feel free to search for more:

Remembering 9/11: FindLaw's Gabriella Khorasanee Shares Her Story

It's been 13 years since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and quite a bit has changed in the fullness of time. Perhaps most poignantly, "Ground Zero" now serves as the foundation for the National September 11 Memorial and Museum -- including relics like the "Miracle Cross."

But FindLaw's Gabriella Khorasanee, Team Lead for Direct to Consumer products and a native New Yorker, still remembers the World Trade Center site as it was -- as a dual colossus striding New York City's skyline. A steel and glass symbol, a sigil even, of the city she knew and still loves.

Gabriella has deeply etched memories of 9/11, when she was working at a Manhattan law firm. She shared some of her recollections with FindLaw Insider.

Fall at FindLaw: Back to School Sure, but There's More

Welcome to the first in a series that we hope you will like, From the Managing Editor. That's me. It's a first for me, and for FindLaw.com.

Speaking of firsts, it's really that time of year, isn't it? Sure, people think of fresh starts on New Year's, but for me, the fresh start time of year has always been fall. Back to school, back to work, back from vacation.

So what is that fresh start here at FindLaw? Well, as always, we have some great resources to help parents cope with the maze that is back to school. We also have new content, new resources, and really, a new attitude (goes with the new fall shoes).
