CELEBRATE INDEPENDENCE DAY !

Flag and fireworks-American fourth of JulyThe team at Mills & Associates and the Nevada Law Blogs wish all of our clients, friends, business associates and readers a very safe and extremely enjoyable Independence Day Holiday!

As we celebrate the July 4, 1776 signing of the Declaration of Independence, let’s reflect on a few important words from that life altering document:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. . .

It’s great to live in these United States!

Enjoy your holiday.
