Episode Notes

Chicago lawyer Kathy Ehrhart and her firm represented two of the three defendants in a civil case focused on alleged breach of contract concerning a real estate transaction. Though the video proceedings were not without some technical challenges, Ehrhart says the overall experience was better than she expected. “I think as time went on through the trial, we all felt an increasing ability to recapture some of those things that otherwise are lost,” she says.
