About This FirmWho are we and why should you consider hiring us instead of a larger firm? Those are good questions that deserve honest answers.
Your case here will not just be one more among dozens or hundreds of others. We limit the number of cases we handle so that we can give each client the time and attention their matter deserves. You will also know who your attorneys are. You'll be able to talk to them. They'll return your calls and e-mails promptly.
Most importantly, you will have the confidence that comes with knowing an experienced firm partner is handling your case rather than an inexperienced associate.
None of these benefits can be counted on when you go to a large firm. In fact, we believe that our firm offers a level of quality, experience and skill many of those firms would envy - without the cost of their overhead.
State and Federal Practice
Our practice involves serious personal injury and wrongful death claims, civil rights violations, employment discrimination and First Amendment cases. In each of these matters, we represent clients in the Peoria area and throughout Central Illinois. We are admitted to practice in all Illinois state courts and, by any measure, have an exceptional amount of experience with federal court litigation and appeals in Illinois and other states.
