Whew! It has been a fast and furious past eight weeks for Safe Sober Prom Night! There are many stories of teamwork, enthusiasm, participation, passion, and success!

The students’ participation and enthusiasm make us optimistic about the future of our community. Our students are bright, talented, motivated, and really trying to do the right things fro a successful future. They are well on their way!

Teams of Daggett Shuler attorneys and staff personally visited approximately 35 area high schools encouraging students to sign a pledge not to drink or use drugs on prom night, distributing student designed t-shirts, and speaking to the students. “Positive messages to our youth ensure the quality of our community for years to come!”

This year the firm has personally paid for, delivered, and distributed more than 13,500 t-shirts to high school students in the Triad area, and made them available to all high schools throughout North and South Carolina.

We have also had some technological breakthroughs with the website at www.SafeSober.com, including virtual pledge cards, video contests, and many resources for teens. The SSPN Facebook page has become very popular for the students Next year portends to be even bigger and better!

Of course there are also the difficult parts. We encounter those who have lost loved ones, or are injured or disabled, in car accidents due to drunk drivers. Meeting those suffering folks and hearing their stories really hits home for us since it was our professional contact with people hurting in these ways that inspired us to start the SSPN program 21 years ago.

Most of all, SSPN is a story of success. Success for our teens, our community, and our Daggett Shuler team. We are already brainstorming for Safe Sober Prom Night 2012! We look forward to having you join us!

After being a registered nurse for 37 years, I had degenerative disc disease at every level of my spine and had had fusions in my low back and in my neck. I’d experienced the disability paper chase from the doctor/patient perspective, and due to pain, I no longer had the energy and focus to fight that battle for myself. John Koontz and the team at Daggett Shuler got right to work on my case and sent me progress updates often. My phone calls were answered by my case manager far more than they went to voice mail, and she always knew the answers to my questions. My Social Security Disability claim was approved in about a third of the time I expected. I couldn’t be more pleased with Daggett Shuler.
