Excellent before and after the election
Adam Lasker has been my election attorney and is now our legislative counsel. I could not be more pleased with his work in both arenas. He has an excellent understanding of election and municipal law and is wonderfully patient in helping me and my fellow candidates/trustees understand and execute our legal options. He promptly responds to calls, texts and emails, even when we need his input during an evening meeting. Adam also has the back-up and support of the firm that literally wrote the book on municipal law in Illinois, Ancel Glink. In the past year Adam, with the support of a partner, successfully litigated two TRO suits on my behalf. The first in Federal Court that my party had to file to get on the ballot. Then, as soon as we won and were seated, a second suit filed by the mayor to try to keep us from accomplishing anything. Each time, despite his already heavy work load, Adam quickly focused, analyzed the situation, drafted brilliant arguments, and got the job done. I whole heartedly recommend you call Adam Lasker when you decide to run for public office - and after you win.
