While the summer has granted us success, there has to be a day of leisure from the hard work. So, we decided to spend the day with the staff and interns of Shiller*Preyar, while DA CUBS were in action. It is always necessary to enjoy memorable moments with familiar faces.
The Shiller Preyar Law Offices is excited to celebrate the one-year anniversary of its trial win for Mr. Andy Montanez, plaintiff in the case of Montanez v. Fico. Shiller Preyar Law Offices fought hard to vindicate the constitutional rights of Mr. Montanez, a young man and life-long Chicago resident who had been beaten up by Chicago Police officer Vincent Fico on March 20, 2009. Mr. Montanez was thrilled, and said that "I had lots of lawyers in my time, but I never had lawyers that really cared. Best lawyers I ever had. Thank you."
The Shiller Preyar Law Offices represents individuals faced with numerous immigration issues. Some of our clients are undocumented and come to us because they need to fight deportation proceedings in court. Other clients are hoping to improve their immigration status so that they may work, attend school or travel. We represent clients who live as close as Little Village and Pilsen and as far away as Kentucky, Mexico and China. In 2013, we anticipate new, comprehensive immigration laws that will allow many of our clients to get on the path to legal residency or citizenship. With the expected changes to immigration laws, we will be able to help our clients avoid long, and costly, court battles, and held our clients achieve better opportunities in the United States. Here are a few examples of how The Shiller Preyar Law Offices helped clients facing immigration battles.
