Let’s face it, the legal profession often has a bad reputation. Most people only see one when they’re at a very low point in their life. But lawyers are people too and they enjoy helping others. The legal system exists to protect everyone. It gives us the rules we all live by and we help to make it function.
Chalik Law goes beyond these basics though. We also seek ways to help out the local community. Our team participates in community events and helps fundraising efforts for local charities. We also, on this page, document changes to laws in the local community so that citizens can be aware of them before they get pulled over.
One major community concern in Florida is bicycles. Bike-sharing systems are common in Florida and other cities, but we are still the state with the highest rate of bicycle fatalities. One major reason for this is a lack of helmet laws. 60% of cyclists in the state do not wear a helmet.
We also have an article on how to keep teen drivers safe. Teens are at a much higher risk of accidents than older adults due to their inexperience and impulsiveness. Drivers have to be taught well so they can stay safe in the beginning and parents have a major role to play in that. If you have children who are learning to drive we encourage you to take a look at that article.
We encourage local events to contact us to ask for help with them. By supporting the local community, we can give back in ways that are more than just legal, and perhaps we can overcome that stereotype a little.

People bicycle for many different reasons. Some do it for exercise, to save money on gas, or for sport and recreational purposes.
