Three judges who handle civil, criminal, and domestic relations courtrooms will go over their general procedures for handling Zoom appearances, including:
- Logging on and checking in (making sure you’re there so your case will be called and heard
- Basic decorum (inter alia: dress for success, and don’t be driving)
- The “mute” button; it isn’t moot
- Presenting documents, evidence, and orders. It’s better if the judge is able to know what’s going on with your case.
- Using certain Zoom functions (chat, breakout rooms, sharing screens, etc.)
These judges will also be available to answer questions.

He previously served as an assistant State’s Attorney, then entered private practice specializing in insurance coverage, fire loss, and construction litigation. He has previously served in Chancery Court, Felony Criminal, and now handles primarily Civil Matters.
Each of these judges will provide their own perspective on how remote participation has affected the way they have handled cases, the particular changes and methods as they pertain both to the types of cases that are handled generally as well what may be unique to them in their now largely virtual courtroom.
We at the NSBA recommend this presentation for those who practice in Skokie both to better represent their clients, as well as better understand the expectations of the court and the pitfalls to avoid. Attorneys will be able to improve their presentations, and they will also see how other attorneys have benefitted from an understanding of how these experienced judges handle the new challenges that Zoom, Covid, and remote participation have created.
