Today, Matt Bromund dissects the law for our benefit!  From the 10 commandments to the 21st Century!  How come  it is so easy for the everyday person to break the law nowadays?

The answer is easy:  There is so much more law.  Living as a law-abiding citizen is more complicated!

In ancient times, it was hard to chisel words on stone and this physically encouraged simplicity and brevity – “Thou shalt not kill.”   Today, billions of words are analyzed, honed to their exact meanings, and stored in huge data bases by legislative bodies.

Politics also comes into the equation, Matt says. Legislators write laws or eliminate laws to make a difference – to make the world a better place.  The law writers want to make sure that their individual ideas get stamped on the law.  Legislatures don’t think about how their proposals affect other laws that are in effect.

The result is that everybody has an incentive to make more law. And so the body of law grows.

Important Question:  Who is left out of the situation?  Answer: The ordinary person.  Now laws are supported by more laws, rules, and regulations. The result is that it is easy to break the law.  For instance, it is the law that you must have a front license plate on your car.  Specifically, in California, you can get a ticket for not having it affixed at a certain height and in a specific way.

Listen to Matt’s show and find out how you may be at risk for breaking the law and how most Californians are committing 1-5 misdemeanors a week!

Matt Bromund – Fighting For Your Future: You Have The Right To Remain Silent – Will You Have The Ability?

gavel_borderIn his fascinating show, Matt Bromund, Principal Attorney of the Bromund Law Group, examines the 1st and 5th amendments of the Constitution.

Matt maintains that the 5th amendment, specifically – your right to remain silent –  is one of your most important constitutional rights.

Since the 1950s, “You have the right to remain silent” has a been a stock phrase.  It’s in books, TV shows and the movies.  We the people are very familiar with it – it means “You are under arrest.”

What most of us don’t know, Matt says, is that this right does not only come into play when people are under arrest.  It is ALWAYS important and comes into play when anyone is dealing with the government from a police officer to a dog catcher!

The Founding Fathers knew that the right to remain silent is critical to being a sovereign and free person.  This is because the government has a lot of power.  They can physically take you and hold you, take your land, your property and confiscate your things.  They can put you to work without pay if you are convicted of a crime.  They can even take your life.

We have been brought up to tell the truth and be honest; We find it difficult to NOT say anything.    This can work against us in dealing with the government.

From over a decade of experience, Matt says that, overwhelmingly, the greatest source of evidence used to convict people wrongly of a crime is their own statements!

Listen to this fact-filled, informative show  and find out how to protect yourself and your life.  Learn about your right to remain silent  and how it is essential to preserving your status as a free person.

You have the right to remain silent, but will you have the ability to do so?  Ask Matt Bromund.  He is there to help. Call the Bromund Law Group  (805) 650-1100.

Matt Bromund – Fighting For Your Future: Immigration History And DACA – One Solution?

Mmatt_photo_7_29_17_borderatt Bromund – “The focus of the Bromund Law Group is always to obtain a better path forward for you and your family.”

In this timely new show, Matt Bromund, Principal Attorney of the Bromund Law Group, delves into the history of Immigration Law and how that relates to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (DACA).

The DACA program is for people who were brought to the U.S.A. as children.  It is an exemption from the harsh penalties in the law that have been in effect for the last 20 years.

Before the 1950’s: 

An Immigrant would be welcomed into America if he or she were willing to work.

They could stay if they resided here for a period of time, could operate well with the English Language, and were willing to swear an oath to the Constitution of the United States.

That began to change with the Social Security Act of 1935.  In the 1950’s, the country made a big shift in how people related to the government.   Problems arose when the government started giving benefits directly to people just for being in the country.  This created a problem because the government cannot be sure that the people receiving benefits are contributing enough to justify receiving benefits.

Thus came the Immigration and Naturalization Acts that moved the country further away from the idea of welcoming immigrants who are simply here to work to support themselves.  The USA kept cutting back.  The result – immigration became extremely restricted.

Fast forward to 2012 when President Obama signed the DACA executive order.

DACA Rules –  You may qualify for DACA…  

  • If you were under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012.
  • If you came to the US before you reached your 16th birthday.
  • If you were here 2007 to today, 2017. (10 continuous years)
  • If you were physically here on June 15, 2012 without legal status.
  • If you have been in school or graduated from high school, or been in the military, or honorably discharged, and haven’t been convicted for a serious crime.

If you fit the above criteria, then you can get employment authorization!

Statistics show that immigrants are mostly employed compared to native-born Americans.  Less than 1/2 percent are unemployed.  It makes sense, Matt asserts, that since the USA spent money on the education of DACA hopefuls, that the country would also benefit from them being in the work force.

DACA is a critical step towards getting 4-5 million (yes that many!), people back into the system where they would be contributing and paying taxes to the society where they are receiving benefits.

If you or someone you know fits the above category ~ call the Bromund Group ~ and they work through a DACA application for you.  Call (805) 650-1100

Matt Bromund – Fighting For Your Future: How Immigrants Make Our Future Better And Brighter!

 Matt Bromund, Principal Attorney of the Bromund Law Group

MATT_show19_borderMatt Bromund invites you to listen to his series of shows that examine how the changing landscape of American Society affects family, immigration and criminal law, and how that personally affects us all.

In this talks, Matt will explore opportunities that can make our lives, our families, and our futures better and brighter.

In His New Show, Matt Talks About The History Of Immigration.  

Why, he asks, have societies been willing to bear the demands immigration places on them in order to advance?  How is it that nations that have invited immigrants into their borders have become more powerful and successful where as other nations, (that wall themselves off) eventually decline?

A serious history buff, Matt has noticed trends regarding immigration and shares profound thoughts and ideas that impact us all:

One consistent trend is that countries that have done a good job of welcoming immigrants and assimilated them in — have grown, prospered and thrived.

From the founding of our country to the 21st century, from pizza to pasta, Matt’s new show examines the immigration phenomenon.  Learn about the three waves of Immigration and how each expanded, and enriched our country.

Listen to Matt’s new show and learn how our American experience has been consistent with our immigration experience.  Matt shows us how immigrants have the ability to see new opportunities, new possibilities and new ideas – the overall effect – enriches all our lives.

Bromund Law Group provides effective representation and assistance at all stages of the regular immigration process. We believe all non-citizens are entitled to the best representation in their journey to reunite with family in the United States or become naturalized American Citizens.

If you or someone you know is interested in having help in assimilating into American Society, Call the Bromund Group ~ (805) 650-1100

Matt Bromund – Fighting For Your Future: DUI LAW – Common Sense Or Conundrum?

 Matt Bromund, Principal Attorney of the Bromund Law Group
Specializing in Family, Immigration, and Criminal Law
(805) 650-1100


matt_7_15_17_border2In this week’s detailed and fascinating new show, Matt Bromund, Principal Attorney of the Bromund Law Group, dives into the common sense and conundrum of DUI law.

We have all been inundated with decades of advertising that point out the dangers of drinking and driving.

Common sense and experience tells us that focus, attention and skill are needed to drive a motor vehicle.

The problem comes when we take a common sense proposition and turn it into law.

Once the population got the idea that drinking and driving was dangerous and done all the time, the legislature:

  1. Lowered the blood alcohol levels allowed in the system
  2. Simplified the burden of proof needed for the government to prove you are under the influence
  3. Increased financial penalties and a benefits for the state.

Now a DUI can be a net gain of $10,000-$15,000 for the state of California.  The cost for the defendant can be $25,000-30,000.  Of course, one cannot put a price on someone’s life.  However are these people criminals in the true sense of the word?

Common sense and experience has shown that there are two kinds of people who drink and drive.

  1. Alcoholics – who are people who are struggling with the disease of alcoholism
  2. People who don’t think they are under the influence – people who perceive that they are okay after a drink or two.

Alcoholism:  There are some counties and judges that are trying to shift from a punitive to a more therapeutic approach but that is not all counties.  That effort is mainly piecemeal in California. When Matt recognizes that a client may be suffering from alcoholism, he works to aggressively get that person into support groups and therapy.

If you, or someone you know, needs support with the problem of alcoholism, Matt invites you to call the Bromund Law. They will do their best to help you at NO CHARGE.

People who don’t think they are under the influence:     Did you know that you could be arrested for DUI driving in your own driveway?

Listen to Matt’s new show to hear about a client of his who was acting as a good Samaritan and arrested for a DUI in her own driveway after 1 glass of wine!  Find out how, with his help, she prevailed in court.
