Partner | Gardiner Koch Weisberg & Wrona
1992 - 2017
GKWW began based upon the idea that a select group of trial lawyers could make a real impact for the good of clients. We now have 18 lawyers and have had the pleasure to handle many significant cases over the years.
Our firm is committed to helping injured people receive just results. We encourage client communication and are committed to responsiveness to clients. We provide our cellphone numbers to clients so that they can have access to us when needed. We understand that the legal system can be slow and frustrating and we want answer client questions and give them honest information about their cases along the way.
Juris Doctor | Northwestern University
1978 - 1981
At Northwestern, I was the Editor-in-Chief of one of the legal publications at Northwestern and published an article that was included in a legal journal, cited by courts, and included in a book of selected articles considered among the most important in the year of publication.
My education at Northwestern allowed me to obtain positions that gave me high quality legal experience quickly. I worked at the largest firm in Chicago, clerked for a federal judge, supervised attorneys at the Cook County State's Attorneys Office, and worked at another highly regarded firm before starting GKWW.
I give back to the law school by teaching there.
Bachelor of Science in Finance | University of Illinois
1975 - 1978
I graduated with Highest Honors in three years.
