My client’s testimony made the news!

My client’s testimony made the news!

The Chicago Daily Law Bulletin, the Wall Street Journal and the American Bar Association Journal reported on my divorcing client’s Skype testimony.

Last week, at Chicago’s Daley Center, a judge ruled in my client’s favor by granting an extension to a previous order of protection. The only witness at the hearing was my 72 year-old bed-bound client. He testified from his home through Skype using his laptop.

In the courtroom, the clerk swore in my client through my iPad and we saw him testify through the iPad.

As far as I know, this is the first time in Illinois that a litigant has testified through Skype.
