I really don’t like AT&T or Direct TV.  I’ve had the absolute worst customer service experiences with them. In recent months alone, the following has happened:

  1. They offered me faster business internet and said it would be cheaper too.  All they had to do was send out a technician. They did, but in doing so,

Unfortunately, among other things, 2020 has been the year of people getting laid off.  It’s understandable that businesses have had to make these tough decisions.  A lot of good workers have found themselves out of work.

The only silver lining for some of these workers is that many of them are getting severances. Under Illinois

It’s one thing to say that first responders are heroes and we should appreciate them. It’s another thing to actually do something about it. In Illinois we show appreciation for firemen, EMT’s, law enforcement officers, correctional officers, etc.

The Covid world is new for all of us and constantly changing. I, along with just about every attorney I know, supported the closing of the courthouses while we got things under control.  Cook County was extra cautious and kept the courts mostly closed until this week.  Some emergency hearings took place, some Zoom status

One of the dumbest things we do is punish the poor financially for not having money to pay fines.  That leads to a downward cycle that affects them in a bad way. It’s how it has been in Illinois forever when it comes to parking tickets.  If you get too many tickets and don’t pay

There is a terrible trend in today’s celebrity and social media driven world where the loudest person can claim to be an expert on something. Dr. Drew made his fame by giving relationship advice.  He then went on to make money by giving substance abuse advice.  He recently made terribly wrong predictions about Coronavirus.  People
