    The Illinois ARDC, needs to be 'INTERNALLY' investigated for they are still allowing "atty.' Blake Horwitz, to steal clients money, KNOWING that he is INTENTIONALLY MIS representing clients!

    ATTN: His "asst.", Erica Faaborg, is the EXACT SAME MISconducting "atty." as he is and they MUST be EXPOSED and stoped , ASAP!

    I can recall Faaborg LIEING on a phone operator, stating that she was told by him/her, that, "I tried to contact you(Mrs. Clayton), for the last month, but the operator said your number(and listed the number IN the e-mail from her(Faaborg;STUPID), has been DISconnected.

    PS: I still have the same number. I've had it for 9 years now;including the tiem when Horwitz was hired by my family to represent our lovedone in a 'Human Rights'/violation case.
