Jennifer Johnson focuses her practice on the defense of asbestos and toxic tort claims, including the defense of products and premises liability claims arising from occupational and environmental exposures. Her practice includes a special emphasis in representing companies not traditionally involved in asbestos litigation. She has also represented corporate defendants in grain contract defaults and other disputes before the National Grain and Feed Association.

Mandy Williams concentrates her practice in toxic torts & asbestos, product liability, mediation services/alternative dispute resolution, and not-for-profit organizations. Having grown up in Madison County, Illinois, a hotbed of litigation, Mandy Williams has worked in the legal field in various capacities for two decades. She has extensive experience helping companies large and small make informed and proactive decisions to keep them in control of the chaotic and confusing litigation process.  Though she doesn’t hesitate to take her battle over important issues into the courtroom, she appreciates how effective out-of-court advocacy can be to a client’s overall success.
