This morning, Tony Elman, Lead Trial Attorney at the Elman Joseph Law Group, was featured in a CBS Chicago television segment. The segment talked about the innovative setting of a recent deposition. The deposition was held for a car accident case. As discussed in the segment, the lawyers for both sides agreed that a face-to-face meeting was preferable to a remote or “virtual” meeting.
The television segment is titled “In Age Of COVID-19, Attorney Gets Creative And Holds Deposition In His Backyard.”
This meeting was one of many adjustments that the Elman Joseph Law Group, LLC has made to adjust to the constraints dictated by COVID-19. On June 10, the Elman Joseph Law Group was involved in what was believed to be the first time a civil bench trial in Cook County was held “virtually.” In this case [American Alliance Casualty Company v. Karen Price-Walker, 18 CH 7429] the judge was Cook County Circuit Judge Raymond W. Mitchell. The case dealt with a one-count insurance coverage dispute concerning a car crash. That “virtual” bench trial is further discussed in the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin article of June 23, 2020 titled “Cook County’s debut virtual civil trial goes smoothly.”
