Versatility 

In the area of litigation, we have successfully handled client matters at virtually every level of the legal system, including jury and bench trials, and appeals. Our litigation successes complement a robust transactional practice through which we help clients reach their full potential, including serving as general counsel for small and medium-sized businesses.

Intensity

We are a full-service general practice firm that includes lawyers known throughout the state and beyond for their extraordinary skill and professionalism. We approach every legal problem with the tenacity, skill, and precision one expects from firms in larger legal markets.

Ingenuity

Our clients trust us to solve the most difficult legal problems because they recognize our resourcefulness and creativity. The breadth of our legal experience and our deep understanding of non-legal fields allows us to bring every resource to bear to obtain the best results.

Cost-Effectiveness

Our rates are competitive with other firms in Central Illinois, and are far lower than comparable firms in Chicago and other metropolitan areas. We are committed to delivering value to our clients in every matter assigned to us.

Collaboration

Although not formally connected, we often collaborate with other firms around the United States and the world including through our membership in the LEGUS International Network of Law Firms. When necessary, we are able to refer client matters to other firms within this network that may be better situated geographically or from the point of view of expertise.

Creativity

We are problem solvers and will not limit our work to traditional methods such as litigation. We are open to alternative approaches to dispute resolution such as arbitration and mediation. We will work with the client to determine the most cost-effective approach to obtaining a solution, including the use of billing methods other than a strict hourly fee.
