Prior to joining Heyl Royster, AJ gained significant experience representing employers and insurers throughout Illinois and Missouri and appeared before both the Illinois and Missouri Workers’ Compensation Commissions defending their interests on appeal.

Following graduation, he worked at the Illinois State Senate in Springfield, Illinois, in the Communications Department. AJ continued his education at the Southern Illinois University School of Law in Carbondale and graduated cum laude in 2015. While in law school, he was a member of the Law Journal where his articles earned “Best Casenote” and “Best Comment” honors, ranked Dean’s List, and received the Academic Excellence Award.
