Illinois Lawyers. We Are The Worst

Illinois Lawyers.  We Are The Worst
As a way to do diffuse our kids when they become mad at us over something trivial, my wife and I like to say “Who’s the worst???”, “Daddy’s the worst?” or Mommy or whoever.  It probably doesn’t diffuse anything, but it makes us laugh.  When we screw up with each other, we tell the other...

Abusing women was cool in the 80's

Abusing women was cool in the 80's
I am a fan of game shows.  In fact, my wife and I have both appeared on Wheel of Fortune.  I’d bomb out on a show like Jeopardy, although she’d do great. When I was a kid, two of my favorite shows were The Price Is Right and Family Feud. I still occasionally watch The... Read more »

Summer is here. Is your lawyer here too?

Summer is here.  Is your lawyer here too?
As we approach July, there is no better time of year to live in Chicago.  The weather is (should be) great, there are tons of festivals going on, you can watch minor league baseball at Comiskey, big boy baseball at Wrigley, go to outdoor concerts, etc.  It’s also a big time for lawyers to take...

How to piss off the Judge and end up in jail

How to piss off the Judge and end up in jail
I’ve been helping people find the right lawyer for their situation for more than 14 years. It’s logical that during that time I’ve talked to nice people and mean people; old people and young people; and certainly smart people and dumb people. Since my service launched in 2001, I’ve been shocked by the number of... Read more »

Direct TV Wants To Annoy Their Customers

Direct TV Wants To Annoy Their Customers
I just move in to a new place.  Because I love live sports so much – it’s really all I watch for the most part – I still need some sort of cable provider.  I have always used the crappy cable companies, but since I’m not having home phone service, it was cheaper to go... Read more »

Can you afford a big time lawyer?

Can you afford a big time lawyer?
There is a perception out there that whether or not you can get justice depends on your ability to afford it. Like many things in life, this stereotype is often true. O.J. Simpson would still be sitting in jail for murder – instead of sitting in jail for robbery – if he had a public... Read more »

Is there a law that you have to love your baby right away?

Is there a law that you have to love your baby right away?
And by love your baby right away, I mean look at your baby and think that you couldn’t possibly love anything more in the world? Don’t get me wrong, I got to that point eventually and certainly feel that way about my kids now, even when they are driving me insane.  I can tell you... Read more »

Hey asshole, stop throwing your butts everywhere

Hey asshole, stop throwing your butts everywhere
If you want to kill yourself by smoking, that is your business.  I’m glad that you can’t do it in restaurants, bars, airplanes or sports venues anymore.  I can live with the fact that when I walk from the El to my office that I have to walk by a bunch of smokers.  I’m not... Read more »

A do not call law for businesses, we need this now

A do not call law for businesses, we need this now
I get about 80 calls a day or so.  Most of them are from people who are looking for an Illinois lawyer referral or just general legal advice.  I love those calls because that’s my job after all. But 5-10 of those calls every day are from telemarketers.  Most of them are robo calls.  Lately... Read more »

Why Individual A Is Not Charged In The Dennis Hastert Case

Why Individual A Is Not Charged In The Dennis Hastert Case
There’s nothing that makes me laugh more than seeing a holier than thou politician, from either party, exposed as a fraud.  It appears (allegedly) that Dennis Hastert, conservative hero, is a closeted gay man or a pedophile.  There are certainly many rumors floating around about both things. I could care less if he or anyone... Read more »
