PM Team Completes Pro Bono Jury Trial
December 3, 2021
The Palmersheim & Mathew LLP trial team (pictured below) recently completed a four-day jury trial in person in the United States District Court for the Central District of Illinois (Springfield Division). It was our firm’s first in-person trial since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The trial team of William Strom and Tim Parilla, assisted by Anand Mathew, represented the plaintiff Jake Simmons pro bono in his lawsuit under Section 1983 of the Civil Rights Act. The firm was appointed by the court on September 13 and brought the case through additional discovery to trial in 11 weeks flat. Congratulations to the team on a job well done. Be on the lookout for insights from the trial team on conducting a jury trial in the age of COVID.
