The Timothy C. Evans scholarship was established to honor the commitment and dedication that the Chief Judge of the Circuit Court of Cook County has devoted to the Northwest Suburban Bar Association (NWSBA) and to the community of Cook County.

Who Is Timothy C. Evans?

As the Chief Judge of the Circuit Court of Cook County, Timothy C. Evans presides over one of the largest unified court systems in the world. Cook County has more than 400 Judges and more than 2.4 million cases filed annually. During his tenure as Chief Judge, Judge Evans has innovated safe haven programs for children of parents attending or guardians attending court. Additionally, he has been a tireless champion of expanding opportunities for women and minorities in the court system. Also, Chief Judge Evans led the effort to open the new, domestic violence courthouse located at 555 W. Harrison Street in Chicago, which opened in 2005.

The NWSBA Foundation, which was established to increase the association’s charitable reach, is honored to recognize Judge Evans’ contribution to the legal community through this scholarship.

In 2013, Chief Judge Timothy C. Evans received the NWSBA’s Public Service Award at the NWSBA’s annual Judges’ Night. Also, Judge Evans was in attendance when Judge Neil H. Cohen received the Northwest Suburban Bar Association’s 2016 Public Service Award.

Dear Friends and Clients of The Law Offices of R.F Wittmeyer, Ltd.:

 We want to assure you that during this time of international emergency due to the COVID-19 virus, our law firm is continuing to serve the needs of our clients and of our community.  Our office remains open for business, but is staffed by just a few of us. To protect the safety of our employees, most of us are working remotely.

The courts, for civil matters, are essentially closed at this point.  Most of the local court systems have issued emergency orders continuing all civil cases for 30 days.  We are using this time to continue to prepare your cases for settlement or trial.

 Do not hesitate to call us or email us with your questions or concerns, or if you would like to discuss a new case, as we remain available to address your needs.

We hope that each of you and your families stay safe and healthy during this unprecedented challenge.

Yours Sincerely,
