We would also like to thank all of the Judges and attorneys who came out to welcome the new members on Thursday, November 21, at Ulrich’s Rebellion Room. Special thanks go to Casey Johnson of WestPoint Financial who sponsored the free drinks and appetizers!!
Illinois Joining Forces
Many local attorneys have been providing services to local military personnel and veterans through efforts largely coordinated by local attorney Michael Lied of Howard and Howard Attorneys PLLC. The PCBA hopes that by joining IJF, it can institutionalize Mr. Lied’s efforts to find and match service members to an attorney who can assist them, while empowering a greater number of service members with legal access and knowledge. This month we would like to recognize attorney Danny Schroeder (right) of Hasselberg, Rock, Bell & Kuppler for assisting a veteran in a family law matter. Anyone interested in helping with this program, may contact Mike Lied at firstname.lastname@example.org or you may contact the PCBA at email@example.com.
