Knell Law L.L.C.
The Definition of Service

The law firm of Knell Law L.L.C., was established in 1998 and is located in Peoria, Illinois. As you read a bit more about us, you’ll find that one theme in particular is touched on again and again. That theme is service.

Our commitment to service is also a cornerstone — a cornerstone that has made many of the long-term, quality relationships we have with our clients possible. Here, practicing with fairness, integrity and respect for the needs, goals, and objectives of our clients is simply the way we go about our business every day.

Our Practice

In every matter, we represent our clients the way we ourselves would want to be represented: Aggressively. Fairly. Ethically.

That said — our practice is focused primarily on workers’ compensation defense. In these matters, our lawyers represent and advise clients statewide and at all levels of the workers’ compensation system throughout Illinois.

We are focused

Our practice is almost exclusively dedicated to workers’ compensation defense. We know the laws. We understand the medical issues. We appear regularly at administrative hearings and in courtrooms throughout Illinois on behalf of our clients.

We try cases

A lot of them. More importantly, our opponents know that when we take a case to trial, it isn’t just a strategic move designed to promote settlement. They know we take cases to trial because we think we’ll win — and that, often, we do just that.

We plan ahead

Our attorneys will provide you with a detailed legal blueprint of the situation as it stands now. This blueprint includes our honest and knowledgeable assessment of your likely trial exposure and the settlement value of the claim, along with our assessment as to whether the claim ought to be settled or defended strongly. We also provide our clients an action plan outlining our options and make suggestions on what steps we need to take to move forward with a claim.
