Melinda Rowe-Sullivan joined the firm’s Peoria office in 2021 where she will focus her practice on workers’ compensation matters. Before joining Heyl Royster, Melinda had a distinguished career as an Arbitrator for the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission after having been appointed by Governor Bruce Rauner in August of 2015. She continued to serve in that role through August of 2021. 

Prior to her appointment as an Arbitrator, Rowe-Sullivan worked for several years at private law firms in Peoria where her practice primarily concentrated on workers’ compensation defense. Further responsibilities included case management in personal injury litigation, as well as having been heavily involved in a hospital/healthcare advisory capacity on a variety of regulatory issues.

Melinda received her J.D., cum laude, from Northern Illinois University College of Law, an M.B.A. in Healthcare Management from Lewis University, and a B.S., cum laude, in Community Health – Health Administration from Northern Illinois University.
