Firm's Recent Pro Bono Efforts

In recent weeks, Bruce Pfaff has completed two major pro bono projects. He drafted lengthy technical amendments to the Village Code of Barrington Hills that will help improve equestrian activities in the village while also preserving the rights of non-equestrians. He has been actively involved in that project for 1 1/2 years and with luck, the proposals will be adopted by the Village Board. He will testify before a village board this evening.

Yesterday, Bruce testified before a special committee appointed by the Illinois Supreme Court to create a code of evidence law for the state. Evidence rules are presently set by Illinois common law. The Supreme Court is seeking to codify the rules and Bruce, along with a small group of colleagues, presented an analysis of the proposed code in a comment and in testimony.

The written materials from both projects are available on request; please contact the firm.
