Lawyers Rock Event Thornes Band Sign


Illinois Bar Foundation - Lawyers Rock

March 16, 2017 | Lincoln Hall, Chicago

Guests enjoyed live music and fun as lawyers rocked out for justice. Proceeds help the Illinois Bar Foundation ensure access to justice and support juvenile justice causes through the Foundation’s M. Denny Hassakis Fund. Many familiar faces were on hand at this event, including Illinois State Bar Association Vincent F. Cornelius, Mark Hassakis, a past ISBA president and longtime ATG member agent, many other leaders of the ISBA, members of the bar, and friends of ATG.

"To our friends at the Illinois Bar Foundation, we hope the event was a financial success for your mission to provide access to justice for those less fortunate. At the end of the day that's the only thing that matters," ATG President and CEO, Peter Birnbaum, drummer for the Thornes — one of several bands to perform at Lawyers Rock. ATG was a "License to Rock" sponsor.
