Illinois Attorneys Actually Do Police Themselves

There’s nothing scarier for lawyers in Illinois than getting a letter from the ARDC, the investigative unit that licenses attorneys and makes recommendations as to whether or not they should be disciplined with the ultimate decision falling on the Illinois Supreme Court.  I got one such letter recently when I accidentally bounced a check because...

Some Illinois Attorneys Are Just Idiots

Some Illinois Attorneys Are Just Idiots

Boating Under The Influence On Lake Michigan

Boating Under The Influence On Lake Michigan
