“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.
