Workers’ Compensation for Union Workers
Providing quality legal help for union workers
Attorneys love to advertise that they want union business. Union workers often make high salaries which means they can potentially get big settlements.
But ask this question: Do these attorneys really support unions? For example, Rubens Kress and Mulholland uses union print shops for its stationary and business cards.
Mr. Rubens expanded jurisdiction under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act by successfully changing the law in the case of Mahoney v. United Airlines.
