Any attorneys in the Naperville-Wheaton-Warrenville or Dupage County. I just want to have some names in my phonebook - just in case. 


Thank you

Sign up for CCWSafe; not only will you get the names of attorneys and locations in Illinois (as well as other states), their services if, God forbid, you ever need them, are paid for...

I'd like to see other options besides Eric Puryear in the Quad Cities area.

Who was the attorney who represented John Horstman - in the UUW case against Horstman, (not the subsequent lawsuit Horstman filed against DuPage County).


“Most gun control arguments miss the point. If all control boils fundamentally to force, how can one resist aggression without equal force? How can a truly “free” state exist if the individual citizen is enslaved to the forceful will of individual or organized aggressors?
 
 It cannot.”

I want to introduce myself, and will post this here and in a new thread (if allowed). My firm Williams & Nickl is mentioned on this site a couple of times, but because 2-3 clients have referenced this forum in the past week, I wanted to register and make sure my contact info is available.

 

Because my partner and I handle professional licensure cases (we have only a literal handful of competitors in the state), we have always handled FOID cases because some licensed professionals require a FOID as part of their license. We have also handled Administrative Review cases for decades, as that is the only option for appeal when a formal hearing on professional licensure cases goes south.

 

When the CCL statute passed, we geared up in late 2013 for the eventual onslaught of appeals, and as expected had filed our first Admin. Review within a week of the first CCL denial being issued around 4-1-14. That summer, as everyone remembers, was nuts. We had dozens of Admin. Reviews pending and every Asst. Attorney General that had a pulse and a pen was assigned to cover the huge influx of Admin. Reviews across the state.

 

Since then, I have given presentations to both the Illinois State Bar Association and the Chicago Bar Association on how to handle CCL and FOID cases, including both informal and formal appeals of FOID denials/revocations and Admin. Reviews of CCL denials and Responses to Notices of Law Enforcement Objections.

 

We have had hundreds and hundreds of folks call us for help with their CCL since 4-1-14.

 

All that being said, I wanted to let this forum know that my partner and I operate under a simple rule: anyone can call us and ask a question or learn if we can help them for no charge. We never charge for phone consultations. Now that I am aware of this forum, I joined as a paying member and will try to monitor discussions to see if I can offer a helpful bit of advice here and there. Nothing I post should be considered legal advice, but you are all welcome to call or email me with a question and I try to respond within 24 hours (usually within 1 hour). Just use the email on my website and mention that you're an IllinoisCarry forum member.

 

Finally, just because my office is in Chicago does not mean that we cannot help downstate applicants. Responses to Notices of Law Enforcement Objections get emailed directly to the CCLRB's legal counsel, so I can do that from home. Informal appeals of FOID denial/revocations get FedEx'ed to Springfield, so again, location is irrelevant. Formal appeals require an in-court appearance, but we handle these via Zoom now, and in the past had atty contacts in the various counties just to step up on the first status hearing while we handled the actual evidentiary hearing.
