Mark D. Prince Offers Thoughts on His Term as ITLA President

Published on Jun 20, 2019 at 6:14 pm in Firm News.

As I write this, my last President’s Page column, I only have three weeks left in my term. I approach the end of my term as your President with mixed emotions. On the one hand, I am very happy that I am about to get the prized Past President designation; on the other hand, I will miss the job. I have enjoyed serving our membership and clients. This has been one of the most treasured experiences of my professional career.

We have had a busy and eventful year. We worked hard on elections and had successful results. Most importantly, Governor Rauner was shown the door after a tumultuous four years in offi ce. We have updated our venerable Complaint Book, which I encourage you to check out. Legislatively, we have had a successful year. We introduced several bills designed to fi x particular problems and to improve our ability to represent our clients. Here are the highlights:

Mark Prince Issues Statement on Governor’s Amendatory State Care Veto

Published on Aug 30, 2018 at 4:18 pm in Firm News.

In a recent press release, Illinois Trial Lawyers Association President Mark D. Prince issued a statement following the state Governor’s amendatory veto of a measure that would have allowed families whose loved ones are injured or die while under the care of the state to file a civil claim against the state. This veto would put a strict leash on the abilities that Illinois victims and their families have to obtain justice when it is due and fight back against unfair and unsafe conditions and care.

Here is the statement that was issued by Mark Prince:

“Senate Bill 2481 is meant to ensure access to adequate and fair compensation for victims and their families when the state is responsible for their injuries or death. Despite the support of strong, bi-partisan majorities in the House and Senate, the Governor’s amendatory veto creates yet another artificial legislative hurdle for our veterans and their families, and put vulnerable children, the elderly, and other future victims that are injured or killed under the state’s care into peril.”

Mark Prince Responds to Lawsuit Reform Efforts

Published on Jul 25, 2018 at 9:36 pm in Firm News.

In June 2018, Mark Prince, one of our attorneys at Prince Law Firm, spoke with WSIL 3 and gave his thoughts about the calls for lawsuit reform in Illinois.

Prince is the president of the Illinois Trial Lawyer Association (“ITLA”). The ITLA is an organization of over 2,500 attorneys, whose main mission is to protect the rights of individuals who have been harmed by the wrongdoings of big corporations.

While organizations like I-Law want to perpetuate the notion that the legal system is broken, this is not the case. Prince says these notions revolve around the politics of fear. Those organizations want people to believe lawsuits are negatively impacting Illinois in areas like unemployment. The statistics, however, disagree.
