Timmerwilke's Construction Practice Featured in Leading Lawyers


Partner Chuck Timmerwilke (Rockford) was featured in an article entitled "Building a Career on Skill and Respect" in the January 2015 edition of Leading Lawyers Magazine. This issue, which covers the top real estate, construction, environmental, agriculture, energy, public finance and public utilities lawyers in Illinois, also listed Jim Manning as one of the Top 100 downstate real estate lawyers.

In the feature article about Timmerwilke, Leading Lawyers calls him a "go-to guy" for defending insurance and construction companies in negligence, injury and defect cases. The article talks about some of Timmerwilke's trials and his courtroom skills and demeanor. Greg Guth, a Rockford mediator, is quoted as saying, "Unflappability is Chuck's key professional characteristic." Guth goes on to say, "Not many of Chuck's peers carry the same quality of litigation skills in their briefcase as Chuck. He knows his file, develops a skillful theory reflecting his knowledge and then calmly but forcefully argues his case theory."
