Johnson & Bell Shareholder, Jeffery G. Chrones, welcomed nearly 300 guests to the Hellenic Bar Association’s 2015 Judge’s Night at the National Hellenic Museum in Chicago.  Mr. Chrones served as Chairman of the event, a position he has held for the past five years.  Over 600 judges from the Illinois State Supreme Court, Federal U.S. District Court, Illinois Appellate and Circuit Courts of Cook, Lake, Will, DuPage and Kane Counties were invited to the June 11th event.  During the event, the 2nd Annual Socrates Dikastes Award was presented to Hon. Marjorie C. Laws, Presiding Judge of the 6th Municipal District of the Circuit Court of Cook County.   Mr. Chrones established the Socrates Dikastes Award in 2014 based on the four Socratic principles of being a good judge (Gr. dikastes) which are  “to hear courteously, to answer wisely, to consider soberly, and to decide impartially." Judge James P. Flannery Jr. was honored in 2014 with the inaugural Socrates Dikastes Award.  Johnson & Bell has been a proud platinum sponsor of this event for the past four years.
