Customer Question
Hi, yes. I was...

Hi, yes. I was wondering if you have any electoral law experts I represent a congressional candidate in Illinois 12th district, and our petitions were challenged

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

We need legal counsel to prepare a response for the Election Board meeting on December 19th

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Yes, sure. Our candidate is a political outsider, and the challenger represents the party machine - so they are very experienced in the process and have prepared a strong case against us.

Lawyer's Assistant: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?

Illinois

JA is a general information site and pursuant to the terms of service for the site the Attorneys cannot enter into an Attorney/Client relationship with the customers of the site. I can, hopefully, get you headed in the right direction and I can provide a link for Attorneys in that district that handle these matters.
