Joe Guyette was recently recognized by Central Illinois Business Magazine as one of "Forty Under 40" professionals in the area who exemplify great leadership abilities and a dedication to community service. Guyette is a partner in the firm's Urbana office who practices in the areas of workers' compensation defense and civil litigation. He has taken several bench and jury trials to verdict, and has handled workers' compensation arbitration hearings throughout the state.

One of Joe's nominators, Dan Baker, the Director of Major and Planned Gifts for the Carle Foundation, summarized why Guyette was selected for this honor by saying, "Joe epitomizes what this award aims to recognize – which is outstanding achievement in one's professional field, in addition to philanthropic support of our community."

Baker went on to point out that Guyette is a Steering Committee Member for Carle Core (which advances the efforts of Carle's Center on Philanthropy), he has been a program funding reviewer for the United Way since 2011, and he has actively helped the University YMCA raise money by volunteering for its annual "Dump and Run" program, in addition to coaching youth soccer and serving as a Boy Scout den leader.
