Serving up justice one legal issue at a time.
What We’re All About
Someone has to make sure that justice is served, and we can’t always rely on the government to do it. Justice in Illinois was created as a way to monitor the laws that exist in Illinois and ensure they are serving our communities.
We examine all laws and justice issues in the state of Illinois, and there is no legal topic that we aren’t willing to comment on. No one is above the law. Laws should be created to serve a purpose. Justice should be granted to all victims who have been hurt or injured because someone was being negligent or broke the law.
What Types of Laws Are We Interested in Examining?
We examine all laws including new laws that have recently been passed and laws that affect a wide range of people. We also examine the cases that bring these laws into being. For instance, when a person is killed or injured in an accident, a civil case may be filed. That case can bring about new legislation designed to protect the public from injuries or injustices.
Injustice is apparent in every area of life. That’s why we review all different traditional practice areas, such as family, criminal, personal injury, employment, tax, bankruptcy, and workers compensation laws.
Here are a few topics that we cover:
- Changes to existing laws
- Family law issues such as child custody, divorce, parents’ rights, grandparents’ rights, and domestic violence
- Child abuse and elderly abuse
- Criminal laws, including changing penalties and the decriminalization of certain behaviors
- Workers rights and workers compensation
- Personal injury laws concerning vehicle accidents, products liability, commercial trucking accidents, wrongful death, and premises liability
- Civil rights violations
Why Do We Care?
Let’s face it—laws affect all of us. When a new law is passed, you don’t get to decide whether you want to get on board or not. Discussing new laws can bring about new ideas and can bring about change. The more you know about laws that concern you, the better you can decide whether the laws are just.
Burying your head in the sand never helped anyone, but learning about legal cases and issues can make our country better for us all.
We all need to be proactive in deciding how our country is run, and we think that the people know best when it comes to important laws that affect our lives, our freedom, our rights, our opportunities, and our happiness.
