Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen, Ltd. Attorneys Write Amicus Brief for Supreme Court of Illinois

Feb 25, 2016 | Firm News

Partners Jeffrey M. Alter and Douglas A. Colby along with Associate Hayley G. Slefo of Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen, Ltd. wrote an amicus brief to the Supreme Court of Illinois on behalf of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association (ITLA). The brief makes an argument against crediting the plaintiff with a 25% workers’ compensation fee on future medical benefits.

This is another example of the great work that our team of experienced trial lawyers and litigators do to protect workers’ rights in Illinois. We are proud of our attorneys’ contributions to assist in the fight for injured laborers and tradespeople. We believe that every worker should not suffer economic hardships if they are injured while on the job. The amicus brief our attorneys produced for the Supreme Court of Illinois will serve to help protect the laws that ensure workers injured on the job are fairly compensated by their employers.

“I would just like to say to everyone at the firm, this is about Jeff Alter, I know that you all there have large and much more profitable cases than mine, the people that Jeff and his secretary had to deal with are simply scandals and that is being polite, but Jeff and his wonderful secretary fought for me and my family, I was off work over this for over a year. Medical bills . . . just a lot of uncertainty, fear and just being taken great advantage of, my settlement is only a few dollars, less than $4,000, this is in no way due to lack of working hard and vigorously for me [sic].”
