At Peck Ritchey, our attorneys are involved in various organizations that raise money for great causes near and dear to our hearts and the hearts of our clients. As attorneys practicing in the areas of elder law, guardianship and estate and trust litigation, many of our clients or their loved ones are living with severe cognitive, developmental and physical challenges. The courage, spirit and determination of these loved ones inspire us at Peck Ritchey to participate in charitable and other worthwhile causes.

One of the organizations that is close to the heart of associate attorney, Cameron DeGuerre is the Auxiliary Board of Northwestern Memorial Hospital. The Auxiliary Board is composed of young professionals who raise money to support research programs at Northwestern. For the past two years, the board has been supporting the work of Dr. Sunt Das and Northwestern’s Brain Tumor Institute to advance the research and treatment of brain tumors, like the tumor that ended the life of the famed Ted Kennedy. Currently, an adult with a malignant brain tumor is only 30 percent likely to survive five years, showing the desperate need for Northwestern’s research.

The Auxiliary Board’s annual event “Summer Lovin’” will be held this Friday, June 18th at the Museum of Contemporary Art. The event will showcase the museum, live music, 13 dining stations, 8 premium bars and Chicago Magazine’s “Most Outstanding Singles of 2010.”

So come support a great cause! You can buy your tickets at the door.

Attorney Kyle Fahey handled our matter with skill and professionalism, and was always responsive. 10/10, would work with him and the firm again.

The peace of mind that Peck Ricthey's office has given me is worth every penny. The services they provided me and my family in an emergency medical situation is beyond outstanding. Last minute notice, Peter Brady and team were compassionate, understanding and most importantly efficient and got the job done. Look no further if you have any needs that this office can provide for you. Definitely in good hands! Thank you, a thousand times over for all of your help.

I solicited Peck Ritchey, LLC for assistance with a living trust for which I became the beneficiary. I needed assistance with understanding the details of how it all worked. However, I was especially concerned because there were threats of allegations made by family members and a lawsuit was filed against me. I needed a solid professional who had my best interests in mind. Peter Brady took my case and he managed it flawlessly. He explained everything in a way I could understand, he knew the law inside and out, he was always available to answer questions, and even offer support when things seemed like they could become extremely problematic. In addition to this, he had a plan. He navigated the course as if he already knew the next move by the opposing attorney. He made me feel like everything was in control and that’s because he knew exactly what he was doing and he consulted with me about everything. We ended up settling out of court and ultimately the court officially dismissed the lawsuit. I honestly believe if it wasn’t for Peter and his expertise this could have gone in an entirely different direction. Peter did a stellar job and I couldn’t be more pleased and impressed with his performance.
