Current Events: Policies & Updates

Dear Clients and Colleagues:

I know the issues related to the coronavirus pandemic are first and foremost on everyone’s mind. We want you to know that we are available to you during this time. We have taken measures to arrange for remote work for the majority of our attorneys and staff. We are conducting ourselves in a manner to protect our staff and the public, by recognizing social distancing, good hygiene and limiting in-person contact.

For the next two weeks, The Illinois Worker’s Compensation Commission has suspended in-person hearings, absent extraordinary circumstances. As of today, the Commission remains open at the present time and has not extended any statute of limitation periods or filing deadlines. We continue to monitor and address pending matters on your behalf.

In addition, our attorneys and staff remain available to you during this time. We are certainly available via email, telephone, or videoconference if you wish. Please do not hesitate to contact us at any time. Our thoughts are with you and your families during this difficult time. We wish everyone safety, health, and calm as we address this challenge together.
