"Barbara's Legal Consultation Program is the best deal in town!  She is capable, knowledgeable, timely, and cares about the people she represents, as well as their constituents.  We couldn't be as successful without her."
Carl M. LaMell, President, Clearbrook

Barbara Weiner knows that legal issues will arise anytime and can create great concern.  This is why she created The Legal Consultation Program.  The Legal Consultation Program enables your agency to designate key staff that can call or email Barbara for legal advice. They are able to resolve critical legal issues before they become a problem and without worrying about incurring large legal fees.  For a low annual fee, between $1000 and $2000, based on the agency's annual budget, you and your staff can have access to a knowledgeable attorney who has specialized in representing community agencies for more than 25 years.

"Barbara has been an invaluable asset to our agency.  She has helped the agency navigate risk management, contract and regulatory compliance, and employee relations issues with very positive outcomes.  She is intimately familiar with the workings of Illinois agencies.  Barbara's experience and knowledge of legal issues related to human services puts her at the top of her class." Marlin Livingston, President & CEO Cunningham Children's Home.

Being a member of The Legal Consultation Program also provides the CEO access to a Listserve with over 100 other CEOs.  The Listserve is a quick way to get advice from other executives on a wide range of issues from benefits you offer your employees to recommendations for insurers or suppliers.  Additionally, Barbara provides periodic advisory letters to her clients on current legal topics, so you are able to keep up with quickly changing legal requirements.  Barbara regularly gives webinars on Employment Law issues, recognizing that this area poses the greatest potential for unplanned costs to clients.
Legal Consultation Program members frequently raise questions about:

  • Hiring, disciplining, and firing employees without incurring liability
