does anybody know a good lawyer?

I need one for my friend who gat beat by drunk guy in Cook county, he gat punched in the face few times, cops arrested the drunk guy, took a picture of my friend face. I told him to talk to the lawyer but dont know any, so I figured I will ask around, since all lawyers arent created =, and maybe somebody knows a good one

Check the yellow pages, look for 1 that looks good, call around. If they think theres a chance of a decent settlement (at least a couple grand) they will take the case for an average of 33 1/3%

Hope this helps, rocket900rr

One the one hand, 7-11 may be able to give a referral for a lawyer. On the other, does 7-11 penalize an employee for resisting a thief?

I'd check with 7-11 employee manual....... they may have a clause. My aunt worked at a gas station and they had one that stated if anyone tries anything, let them.

but........

either case... workmans comp is a yes. A lawyer is a yes too. At least you may have a civil suit against that guy.
