    I have worked with Seth and he is the utmost professional in how he works with his clients. If you need an attorney you can trust I would highly recommend the Law Office of Seth Hanson.

    I found the firm's representation to be more than what I expected.

Thank you again.

    I liked that you had very friendly, caring staff. You were all very knowledgeable. Your treatment towards me was excellent and you quickly responded to all my concerns. If a friend asked of your overall impression, I would say that we were very impressed and we would recommend you to them.

The Government Shutdown: Furloughed Employees

As the longest federal government shutdown in history continues, federal workers are struggling to make ends meet and keep their families afloat. According to EDD there are approximately 245,000 federal employees living in California alone. EDD has seen a 600% increase in unemployment applications from federal employees since December 29th of 2018.

If you are a federal employee who has been furloughed due to the government shutdown, you can print the following application and mail or fax to EDD to begin your unemployment claim.

Communities Offering “Freebies”

Some companies are using the government shutdown as an opportunity to provide added benefits to federal employees. Some companies are calling them “furlough freebies” or “shutdown specials”. Many wireless communication companies are waiving late fees and providing extensions.

Free Services

Many restaurants, including five-star chef Jose Andres are offering free meals to federal employees. In addition, some movie theaters are offering free movies and concessions to federal workers who show their government ID. You can even get a free three-month subscription with Rosetta Stone.

If you are a federal employee who is struggling to keep up with your minimum payments amidst the government shutdown, contact your Modesto bankruptcy attorney for more information.
