Hon. Clifford L. Meacham, (Ret.), senior mediator and arbitrator at ADR Systems, is speaking on mechanics lien law at the Illinois Creditors Bar Association (ILCBA) Annual Spring Seminar.

“I’ll be offering my viewpoints from the bench as a former judge and discussing recent developments in mechanics liens law,” Judge Meacham said. “It’s an unusual statutory remedy and can be dangerous for attorneys not experienced in that area. I want attorneys to walk away with a better understanding of mechanics liens law and how to properly utilize it.”

The presentation, titled “Recent Mechanic’s Lien Cases and Comments from the Judge,” will be from 10:15am – 11:00am. Judge Meacham will present along with Bruce Schoumacher, shareholder and co-chair of the construction practice group, Querrey & Harrow, Ltd.

Other topics will include e-filing, current Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) issues and new topics in collections. The ILCBA Annual Spring Seminar will be from 9:00am – 3:00pm Monday, March 5th on the Mezzanine level of One South Wacker Drive. It costs $125 for ILCBA members and $175 for non-members. Lunch will be provided and Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit is available.

ADR Systems, It’s Settled.®

I had another first-class service from a first-class organization. We had a very good arbitration experience with Judge Ward.  He was a terrific arbitrator who patiently listened and made all parties feel important, including my client.  And after the arbitration, Judge Ward wrote a thoughtful ruling. Thank you again – ADR Systems is the best!
