At KJC Law Firm, we follow a list of core values that represent who we are as a company. Each core value is a unique asset to our hard working and supportive environment. This month we are recognizing each of our KJC employees their core value.

Our first favorite core value feature is Benjamin Duggan! Benjamin is a litigator and trial lawyer at KJC Law Firm.  He represents the underdog, insurance companies, plaintiffs up against corporations, and people who have been charged with crimes. Benjamin’s favorite core value is A+ Quality which stands for striving to produce quality work consistently. Benjamin believes that this is one of the driving factors for the firm’s success. He finds that when everyone at KJC Law Firm puts pride into their work, it shows. Benjamin loves to golf and can relate this value to the golf course because he always strives to be better!

A+ Quality is a true reflection of the quality work that we do. No one is afraid to take on complicated cases and figure out how to handle it well. We don’t back down from taking on larger firms. This value is a good reminder to always put in more effort and keep working until that is the best effort possible.” – Benjamin Duggan

KJC Law Firm prides itself on 11 core values that are sheer guidelines for employees to embrace in the workplace. This month we are recognizing our KJC employees by asking them what their favorite core value is. Below are the 11 Core Values to reference in terms of the KJC attitudes towards striving for success.

February is National Heart Health Awareness Month. Every year this awareness month aims to motivate Americans to adopt to healthy lifestyles to prevent heart disease. Focusing on heart health has never been more important, especially during the pandemic. Studies show that people with poor cardiovascular health are at an increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19. President Biden addresses heart disease as the leading cause of death in the United States and is using #OurHearts to bring awareness to the ongoing battle.

Meeting personal healthy lifestyle goals is more successful when we come together with others. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute is using the #OurHearts campaign as a way to bring awareness to self-care and healthy living. This month motivate yourself and others to make heart health a regular part of daily self-care.

Your heart is always working. It is the most important organ in your body because it provides blood and oxygen to all of your organs. Serious problems can develop in the arteries when it doesn’t get the proper care it needs. This can lead to plaque which can lead to heart attacks and blockage of blood flow in the arteries. Below are the conditions that can affect your heart health and habits that can manage or prevent them.

What is Mindfulness?

It is a stressful world. Humans are busy creatures dealing with many tasks on hand from day to day. You plan your day while listening to the radio and commuting to work, and then plan your weekend. In the heat of all the chaos, sometimes we lose ourselves with the present moment. Mindfulness is the practice of purposely focusing attention on the present moment and accepting it. Mindfulness has been scientifically proven to be a key element in stress reduction and happiness.
