We are proud to announce and would like to congratulate our partner, Adam Codilis for being selected in this year’s Chicago Lawyer: 40 under Forty Attorneys to Watch.

Chicago Lawyer has announced the recipients of its annual 40 under Forty Attorneys to Watch, a program celebrating young attorneys who are helping to positively shape the legal profession.

Out of nearly 1400 nominations across Illinois, Adam has been recognized as a 40 Under 40 honoree, among the best and brightest talent in the legal profession. According to Chicago Lawyer, the award recipients were selected based on their “[i]ntelligence, passion, success in the office, a desire to help the community, and, most importantly, a willingness to work hard at one of the country’s most important professions.”

Codilis’ legal career is an impressive one. He is vice president at Codilis & Associates, a suburban firm that ranks as one of the largest creditors’ rights law firms in the country. Codilis has gained a reputation among his peers as one of the top foreclosure, bankruptcy and real estate attorneys in the region.

Adam Codilis boasts many passions: He’s passionate about the law, of course, which is why he ranks as one of the busiest foreclosure, bankruptcy and real estate attorneys in the Chicago metropolitan area. But Codilis has two other overriding passions, too: He has long embraced technology. And he is a strong proponent of doing whatever it takes to run his legal practice more efficiently. Fortunately for Codilis, these last two passions have converged. He is the co-founder of Run the Call, Inc., an on-demand app that connects legal professionals to legal service providers. Codilis is also a student of the relationship between artificial intelligence and the law. He has already incorporated several aspects of machine-learning into his practice, and plans to take to market many of his artificial intelligence products in the near future. Gia Scatchell, chief executive officer of Run the Call, said that Codilis is one of those rare professionals who has no “off” switch. “Adam is a self-starter,” Scatchell said. “I am consistently impressed with his ambition and laser focus. Adam is an asset to have as a business partner because nobody works harder and smarter to challenge himself and everyone around him.” But Codilis’ energy doesn’t end with his work. Scatchell said that Codilis is equally as committed to community service. “He juggles a high-pressure law firm with giving back to the community,” Scatchell said. “He makes it look easy.”
