/EINPresswire.com/CHICAGO, IL – Cameron DeGuerre, a Chicago litigation lawyer from Peck Bloom, LLC, recently helped the Chicago Northwestern Auxiliary Board raise $50,000 for research and therapies for stroke patients.
The money was raised on October 21, 2011 at the event Chicago’s Table. Guests dined on dishes and cocktails from Chicago’s most famous restaurants and DJ Megan Taylor provided the entertainment. The proceeds will help Dr. Andrew M. Naidech, the medical director of the Neuro/Spine ICU at Northwestern Memorial, fund his research into the causes of stroke. DeGuerre currently serves as vice president of membership for the Northwestern Auxiliary Board and has been a member of this influential group of young professionals for over five years.
“The auxiliary board gives me an opportunity to raise funds for a hospital that so many of my clients rely on, as well as raise money for a medical phenomena — strokes — that so many of my clients have also suffered. Often when a client walks into our doors, we are not just providing legal services, we are working with a full care team, including doctors, social workers, care managers, bankers and family members to evaluate what steps we need to take to ensure the clients needs are met now and when they leave the office,” said Cameron DeGuerre of Peck Bloom, LLC (http://www.peckbloom.com).
The Chicago guardianship lawyers at Peck Bloom are leaders in the local legal community. They can help with a number of issues related to elder law in Chicago and have been hired by the city’s Department on Aging to help rewrite the Elder Abuse and Neglect Act. Lawyers from the firm understand the unique situations that families are faced with after a loved one suffers a stroke and have plans in place to help every step of the way.
“At Peck Bloom, we have the expertise and experience to provide the legal planning necessary to protect a stroke victim’s personal choices. Advanced directives, such as powers of attorney for health care and property can be drafted and, if substantial damage has occurred and no planning is in place, we can assist the family in obtaining guardianship of their loved one. Our firm also can help with Medicaid/ Medicare planning and asset protection planning to make certain their financial security is ensured despite numerous medical bills,” said DeGuerre.
