The attorneys at Schweickert Ganassin Krzak Rundio, LLP (SGKR) are thrilled to announce the addition of attorney Melinda Rowe-Sullivan to our experienced and award-winning legal team. Ms. Rowe-Sulllivan, who grew up in the same LaSalle-Peru community that our law office serves, brings a wealth of experience in handling Illinois worker injury cases to our firm. She is eager to help ensure you get the compensation and justice you deserve in yours.
Clients who previously worked with an early ideation of our law firm, Schweickert & Ganassin, may remember working with lawyer Melinda Rowe-Sullivan early on during her legal career. She went on to work as an Arbitrator with the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission for six years before recently joining our rebranded law office of Schweickert Ganassin Krzak Rundio, LLP.
The value of her experience in handling Illinois workers’ compensation cases on behalf of both employees injured in workplace accidents and also employers is immeasurable. Coupling that with the unique perspective she gained in her service as a former Arbitrator for the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission gives her tremendous insight into the steps that claimants must follow to be successful in pursuing their claim. This knowledge is invaluable because so many workers can unknowingly jeopardize their right to full compensation for injuries or illnesses that have onset in the course of working because of choices they do (or do not) make in the litigation process.
Attorney Melinda Rowe-Sullivan can provide skilled guidance from the onset of your Illinois workers’ compensation case so you have the best chance of a successful claim. The experience that Melinda brings to the table aligns with the breadth of personal injury experience all our Schweickert Ganassin Krzak Rundio, LLP attorneys have. This experience allows our firm to serve the North Central Illinois residents in Peru, Ottawa, Chicago, and Morris (and areas in between) that we keep at the forefront of our minds when advocating for them and their rights when they’ve been seriously hurt.
