The Orlando Law Group Announces Opening of New Office in Waterford Lakes

LEGAL ADVICE

by Pamela Rogan

T

he Orlando Law Group (OLG) is pleased to announce the official grand opening of its third location to be held December 3 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The grand opening will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony and an open house for the community. The new location is conveniently located at 12301 Lake Underhill Road #213, on the corner of Alafaya Trail in Waterford Lakes, near 408 and 417. The community is invited to join in the celebration and meet the attorneys. The festivities will include food from local vendors and raffles. Since its founding six years ago, OLG has grown to a team of seven attorneys and has become known for delivering results

and advice in a professional, warm atmosphere that sets clients at ease. The growth that has come with that reputation was the impetus for the opening of its new location. “So much of the success that we have experienced has been a result of our commitment to put people first,” explained OLG founder Jennifer Englert. “This new office reflects that as it better meets the needs of our people – its location is more centrally located in East Orlando, and it is a little larger to accommodate the growing needs of our client base. We look forward to rolling up our sleeves and becoming a part of a new community.” OLG reflects the firm’s commitment to serve the communities in which its

employees live and work. At their other locations, lawyers and staffers frequently donate their time and money to local causes. This new office will continue in that tradition. The Orlando Law Group was founded by Attorney Jennifer Englert in 2009. Its diverse team of attorneys have a wide breadth of experience which allows them to protect their client’s rights through the evolution of their business, as well as personally while they progress through all stages of life. Over the years, they have created a stellar reputation in the community as professional legal experts who believe foremost that planning ahead is the best option for their clients, as their aim is to minimize the number of potential dis-

putes and costs of litigation. The Orlando Law Group is more than a legal team, they are your life-long partner who will work with you to build a relationship while creating solutions that work.

Pediatric Emergency Center Opens at Florida Hospital East Orlando

F

lorida Hospital is excited to announce there’s a new, specialized emergency department designed exclusively for children in East Orlando. Florida Hospital East Orlando has begun caring for its youngest patients in a new emergency center staffed by pediatric specialists who are dedicated to meeting the unique needs of children and their families. Open 24 hours a day and seven days a week, the pediatric emergency center has 12 private rooms, and will offer access to highly specialized pediatric physicians via telemedicine. Florida Hospital leaders opened the clinic to meet

the needs of the young — and growing — communities in east Orange County, such as Waterford Lakes, Avalon Park and Stoneybrook East. “Our hospital saw more than 15,000 pediatric patients last year,” said Mike Thompson, administrator and CEO of Florida Hospital East Orlando. “With the community continuing to grow, so does its need for a child-centric emergency center close to home.” From ocean murals on the walls to pink fish on the floors, the colorful, aquatic theme of the unit and each of the rooms are designed to be soothing for children. “The comforting environment at Florida Hospital

Eden Daniels cuts the ribbon at the East Orlando Children’s Emergency Department.

East Orlando’s pediatric ED was designed from the ground up to be childfriendly, with playfully themed rooms and a team of physicians and nurses specially trained in pediatric care,” Thompson said. But there are more than aesthetic differences in the children’s emergency center, which is a result of a collaboration with Florida Hospital for Children. The clinical team includes

board-certified emergency physicians, nurses specially trained in pediatric care, and a dedicated children’s transport team. Child life specialists, a service unique to Florida Hospital for Children, help ensure each child’s emotional, developmental and psychosocial needs are being met using a variety of methods including games and arts and crafts. “By offering a kid-friendly

environment, a comprehensive and specialized team, and services catered to children and their family members, the pediatric emergency center at Florida Hospital East Orlando will decrease stress and anxiety for patients, while offering leading-edge care,” said Dr. Dennis Hernández, medical director of pediatric emergency services at Florida Hospital.

Last year, Eden Daniels was admitted to Florida Hospital for Children through FH East Orlando. She was diagnosed and treated for stage 4 neuroblastoma, and was declared cancer free in January 2015. For media inquiries only, contact Florida Hospital Corporate Communications at 407-303-8217.

Available VA Mortgage Products VA Loans are a safe way for active duty personnel, veterans and disabled veterans to qualify for a mortgage of up to $417,000 with no money down. This type of loan requires a funding fee which is added into the amount of the loan and paid over the life of the mortgage. This fee replaces higher priced mortgage insurance required by conventional loans and may even be waived for disabled veterans. If you’re a veteran or active duty personnel, you may be eligible to purchase or refinance a new home with favorable loan terms. Our VA loan products include standard purchases and refinances, cash-out refinance and Interest Rate Reduction Refinancing Loans (IRRRL).

Benefits • 100% loan-to-value available • Low refinance rates • No credit scoring used in qualifying analysis • Fixed and adjustable interest rates • All closing costs may be paid by seller • No monthly mortgage insurance • No prepayment penalty • Option to qualify for more than $417,000 • May be able to qualify even if you have an existing VA mortgage

East Orlando Deals

Will Save Residents Money by Melody Rivera

R

esidents of East Orlando, can download a free app from East Orlando Deals, providing users with access to the best deals in the East Orlando area. The app is the idea of Nermala and Suresh Hariprashad. “As entrepreneurs, we are always trying to do something unique,” says Suresh, the app’s software developer. The couple moved to the East Orlando area in 2004. They are optimistic in getting support from their neighbors to help them achieve the success they desire. “There are many coupon apps available, but nothing that would benefit local residents and businesses,” says Suresh. With the East Orlando Deals app, businesses can reach their target audience. It uses location-based software to alert users to the deals closest to them. Consumers will be able to visit their Web site, and contact the business directly from the app. East Orlando Deals is a business that will depend on the community to prosper. Nermala, president and CEO of the company, expects to sell the app to local businesses. She makes daily

phone calls to businesses and attends events where she promotes East Orlando Deals. “I do all the marketing. I go to networking events, and tell people about East Orlando Deals.” says Nermala. “The success of the app will also depend on getting branded businesses in the app,” says Suresh. “It will add credibility to the app.” East Orlando Deals is available on Android devices and the iPhone. Nermala and Suresh plan to expand the app to West Orlando and Oviedo. “If we continue to succeed in Florida, we can make this work in other states,” says Suresh.

As the business grows, and with the continued support of local businesses and residents, East Orlando Deals plan to give back to the East Orlando area. “We will take some of the profit and give back to some charities,” says Suresh.
