Devin Taseff (Associate)

PRINT

Devin focuses his practice in civil litigation, particular in trucking defense, personal injury defense, and commercial litigation for both plaintiffs and defendants. Devin graduated Summa Cum Laude from Northern Illinois University College of Law, and worked for Heyl Royster as a law clerk during his second and third years of law school. During his third year of law school, Devin obtained invaluable courtroom experience, using his 7-11 license as an extern in NIU’s Civil Justice Clinic. While in law school, Devin was involved in law review, mock trial, and the Public Interest Law Society.

Prior to attending law school, Devin worked as a paralegal for a criminal defense firm in Bloomington, Illinois, assisting in the defense of cases both in state and federal court. In addition to his legal experience, Devin served as the chief executive officer of a nonprofit organization while pursuing his undergraduate education at Illinois State University.
