Meet Ali, Rudy & Rosie


Both Ali and Rudy are Clumber Spaniels.

Ali is a lively girl who survived a medical condition against all odds. As a puppy, Ali had a liver shunt and survived surgery to go on to become a fun-loving dog who likes nothing more than to eat leaves and lick smiling faces.

Rudy was rescued by the Clumber Spaniel Rescue and Placement Committee of the AKC and went on to become Ali's brother. He spends his days sleeping, snoring, and running all around his backyard.

Both Ali and Rudy enjoy walking, swimming, and...more sleeping. Research indicates just looking at a dog can make you smile and we often use pictures of Ali & Rudy to help our youngest clients feel more comfortable, and smile.

Viewing their pictures can help lower the stress for children involved in a Guardian ad litem case and for adults seeking a mediation friendly attorney, an experienced mediator, a collaborative divorce attorney, or a settlement based family law attorney.

Rosie is a female domestic short haired cat that was surrendered to the DuPage County Animal Services when she was 6 years old. The family indicated she was not safe where she was currently living and wished for her to have a better life. Rosie, unfortunately, did not do well at the shelter and was moved to a pet store to help with her depression. Adult cats are often overlooked and she wasn't considered for adoption for 8 months.

Our Attorney, Erin Birt, fell in love with her at first sight and brought her home where she immediately began to rule the house. Rosie went from an unsafe environment, to a 2 ft x 2ft box, to a home where she loves to wander among many rooms and watch the birds from every window (she often sees robins, cardinals, finches, orioles, great horned owls, and red-tailed hawks!). She is happy and safe and glad to take a picture to help any of our clients smile. She also loves to yell from the top of the stairs to encourage Rudy and Ali to run around and get a work out!
