GOODMAN LAW GROUP | CHICAGO is grounded in the belief that connecting with people and contributing to our Chicago community should be the animating element of work both paid and volunteer. Please see our Giving page to learn more about our charitable contributions
For David, contributing is further expressed outside of the office in his efforts to develop the next generation of legal professionals by mentoring at Chicago Legal Charter Prep, managing summer associate programs for law students, serving as a presenter on a variety of continuing education topics including basic trial skills and discovery, serving as chair of the litigation department for a mid-sized law firm in Chicago, and speaking publicly on a number of legal topics.
In addition, David is on the Board of Chicago Run, and is a member of the Chicago Bar Association’s Juvenile Justice Mentoring Initiative, guiding and mentoring teenage men on parole.
For Bonnie, contributing is an extension of her geriatric psychotherapy practice. Drawing upon her work for the Alzheimer’s Association, Friend Center (assisted living for people with dementia), and Lieberman Center for Health and Rehabilitation, Bonnie is able to provide her professional and personal communities with her uniquely comprehensive and in-depth perspective around aging issues including loss, illness, mental health, Alzheimer’s disease education and treatment, and care options.
For Jacqueline, contributing is a reflection of family values. Raised by a father who co-authored the Illinois Hate Crimes Act, Jacqueline is on the Board of the Anti-Defamation League and a member of its Civil Rights Action Committee. She’s also on the Board of The Decalogue Society of Lawyers and co-chairs their Committee Against Anti-Semitism. As a member of the Chicago Bar Association, Jacqueline has performed in the annual Bar Show since 2011.
For Kalli, contributing means volunteering with Deborah’s Place, an organization that helps homeless women in Chicago get back on their feet.
And for Rose, contributing is multi-faceted. She serves on the Executive Board for the Palos Heights Woman’s Club as Corresponding Secretary; on the Executive Board of GFWC Illinois Third District as Recording Secretary; and on the Library Board of Trustees / Palos Heights Library as Recording Secretary.
