From the January 17, 2017 Issue of the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin. It’s interesting to see practice areas as defined by a plaintiff’s firm.

“Simmons Hanly Conroy LLC named Karoline B. Carstens, Warren Brent Copple, Kenneth P. Danzinger, Suvir Dhar, Ryan Dickherber, Michael Cody Favilla, John J. Foley, Courtney E. Harashe Gregory, Ryan J. Kiwala, Christopher J. Levy, John E. Richardson Jr. and Andrew S. Williams as shareholders.

Carstens, Danzinger, Dhar, Dickherber, Gregory, Levy and Richardson practice on helping those affected by asbestos-related diseases, such as mesothelioma.

Copple works as an asbestos and mesothelioma attorney.

Favilla practices on discovering and exposing what asbestos companies knew about the dangers of asbestos exposure and their failure to protect their employees.

Foley practices on protecting the rights of victims harmed by dangerous pharmaceutical drugs, such as Yaz, Reglan, Chantix, Actos and Depakote and medical products like transvaginal mesh.

Kiwala has 11 years of experience developing mesothelioma cases against defendants that neglected to protect workers from exposure to asbestos.

Williams practices on representing cases in pharmaceutical injury litigation.

All of the newly named shareholders are based in the firm’s Alton office except Danzinger, who works from Chicago.”
