Hon. William J. Haddad, (Ret.) was honored at the second annual Building Bridges Awards on Tuesday, October 24th at the John Marshall Law School.

The awards were sponsored by the Decalogue Society of Lawyers and the Arab American Bar Association of Illinois (AABAR). Judge Haddad was recognized alongside Michael Traison, vice president of the American Jewish Lawyers Association, for forging diversity relationships between their respective communities.

The Building Bridges Awards were established in 2016 to recognize legal professionals who establish connections between diverse groups in the legal community. Last year, the Building Bridges Awards recognized six women, three of Arab descent and three of the Jewish faith, who had been fighting stereotypes against gender, immigrants and the LGBT community.

ADR Systems, It’s Settled. ®

Judge Etchingham has a terrific demeanor, and made my client feel very comfortable.  He took time to thoroughly prepare, coming to the table with a clear understanding of the case.  Judge Etchingham offered insightful advice that kept negotiations from reaching a standstill.  I wish I had been able to practice before him when he was on the bench; Judge Etchingham is a real find for ADR Systems.
