As a rule, nobody calls a lawyer when they are having a good day. That call is placed when something bad has happened, be it an auto accident or a fall or a host of other possible catastrophes.
When it happens to you, calling a lawyer with the kind of experience to successfully navigate the judicial system should be your top priority. It is that kind of lawyer who can push cases through, who will doggedly pursue what you are entitled to receive while the case wends its way through the court and who will work as hard for you as he does any client.
Stephen P. Kelly is that kind of lawyer. He has 25 years of experience practicing law in Illinois. He knows his way around a courtroom and can navigate the various minefields within the legal system.
“I don’t think there is any attorney who works as hard for you as I do. I understand what is at stake. You want results; I can get them for you.”
A Police officer for the City of Peoria suffered a catastrophic injury while working for the City of Peoria. As a result of her injuries, Officer Taylor was unable to return to work as a police officer for the City of Peoria. As her attorney, Stephen P. Kelly obtained her benefits under the Pension Act and her PSEBA benefits. Subsequent to winning the trail for her pension and PSEBA benefits, Stephen P. Kelly tried Officer Taylor’s case in front of the Illinois Workers Compensation Commission. After receiving a very favorable award from the Illinois Worker’s Commission, the City of Peoria appealed the award to the Illinois Appellate Court. The City of Peoria argued, that the Pension benefits awarded to Officer Taylor should be used to reduce her award under the Illinois Workers Compensation act. The Appellate Court rejected the City of Peoria’s argument, and upheld the decision of the Illinois Workers Compensation Commission.
