On March 31, 2014 the Illinois Appellate Court ordered that:
- A corporation must be represented by a licensed attorney
- A non-attorney can no longer represent a corporation on a code violation case
- The City of Chicago must comply with this court order
If a non-attorney appears before an Administrative Law Judge, he or she will receive one continuance to hire an attorney.
The Law Office of Hugo A. Ortiz is available to represent businesses in Chicago code violations. Please call (773) 376-9800 or submit an online request for assistance with a code violation.
