Welcome to the new website for The Decalogue Society of Lawyers. For over eighty years, Decalogue has supported Jewish lawyers and the legal community in Chicago and throughout Illinois. Our improved website provides better tools and information to serve our communities. We have quite a bit planned so come back often to see all that Decalogue has to offer!
Services Decalogue Provides
Did you know that member-to-member referrals are one of the benefits of your Decalogue membership? Here’s our latest success story:
“Former Decalogue President Joel Chupack recently referred a federal criminal investigation to another former Decalogue President, James A. Shapiro, a former federal prosecutor. Pursuant to ethical guidelines, a referral fee was paid. So far, the representation has been very successful, with the avoidance of the client waiving his Fifth and Sixth Amendment rights by speaking to federal agents without counsel.”

The Cook County Sheriff’s office has launched a reporting hotline for discrimination and hate crime incidents for anyone who feels they are being threatened or targeted as a result of their religion, race, nationality and/or sexual orientation.
Those who call the 24/7 hotline will receive a direct response to their incidents by Sheriff’s Office staff, who will help connect callers to other agencies, Sheriff’s detectives, or legal assistance if the matter would be best addressed by external resources.
Decalogue was represented at the announcement by 1st Vice President Mitchell Goldberg and Treasurer Jonathan Lubin, pictured below with Sheriff Tom Dart, members of the Sheriff’s Advisory Council on Islamic Affairs, and other community representatives.
