Founded in 1977, Codilis & Associates serves the needs of both mortgage lenders and servicers throughout Illinois. Codilis and Associates are also involved in a number of charitable endeavors and are supporters of the Chicago Bar Foundation (CBF).
In January 2011, Codilis contributed $25,000 to a total of $125,000 in donations made to the foundation in conjunction with the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin, Pierce and Associates, and Attorneys’ Title Guaranty Fund, Inc. The CBF aims to make the justice system fair and accessible for all through its work.
Founding partner Ernie Codilis was present when the checks were distributed, and the money was used to provide grants to a number of organizations that offer legal help to homeowners who are at risk or currently facing foreclosure.
Among those who received the grants were the Center for Conflict Resolution, Chicago Legal Clinic, and the Legal Assistance Foundation of Metropolitan Chicago. The CBF has continued to offer grants and scholarships in the years that followed this donation.
