Attorney Tim Tomasik to Moderate Panel Discussion at Judges' Symposium

2018 Judges' SymposiumAttorney Timothy S. Tomasik, a founding member of Tomasik Kotin Kasserman, LLC, will be moderating a panel discussion on pre-trial settlement conferences at the 9th annual Symposium with the Judges, which will take place on Wednesday, November 14th at the Westin Chicago River North.

The panel will include Hon. Larry G. Axelrood, Hon. Jerry A. Esrig, and Hon. Edward S. Harmening, and the judges will provide advice to trial attorneys in attendance about settling prior to jury selection. The discussion will look at the processes and procedures followed in settlement conferences, the benefits provided by settling, and preparation and strategies for pre-trial conferences.

“Over the past several years, there have been a number of new trends and dynamics which have had great impact on the ability to settle cases in the courthouse,” Tomasik said. “Our esteemed panel will explore how both sides of the aisle and judges can successfully resolve cases before verdict, and what causes settlement efforts to fail.”

The annual Judges’ Symposium, which is hosted by the Chicago Law Bulletin Publishing Company, provides sitting judges with the opportunity to provide advice to trial lawyers, answer questions, share comments in a candid manner, and explain courtroom policies and procedures. In addition to Mr. Tomasik’s panel, the event will include opening remarks from Chief Judge Timothy C. Evans and discussions about case management, jury selection, and trial presentation.
