Chicago Bar Association Meeting For Attorneys

For those of you who do not know, this is my second year as the co-Chair of the Chicago Bar Association Solo and Small Practitioner Committee.

We are very excited to have our first meeting of this calendar year kick off with such a great topic and great speaker!

That meeting is September 6th at 12:15 p.m. at the Chicago Bar Association--the entire meeting announcement is copied below.

With new ethical rules in effect, it behooves every lawyer to obtain FREE MCLE ETHICS CREDIT by attending our meeting.

But wait, there's more... attending you will get to meet great people, many of whom also practice in a solo or small firm, and who can offer much support to you in your networking, practice development, mentoring, case referrals, and offer a social outlet to boot.

While I will be unable to attend that meeting, I hope many of you attend and hope to see all of you at our next meeting, October 6th, which will feature an attorney who advises small firms on how to avoid ARDC complaints and stay in compliance.
