Tim Furman and Emily Schlecte Named Income Members

We are pleased to announce that Tim Furman and Emily Schlecte have been elected to Income Members.

Tim (“TJ”) Furman joined the firm in 2016 and concentrates his practice to workers’ compensation and general liability defense matters. He is an active speaker in the legal community, including presentations for Lorman Education Services, National Business Institute and other nationally recognized conferences. Tim also has been selected to Super Lawyer’s Rising Stars list for the last three years. Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with his family, traveling and cheering on his beloved Chicago sports teams.

Emily Schlecte joined the firm in 2017 and has been a valuable asset to our Workers’ Compensation and General Liability teams. She is especially noted for her thoroughness, due diligence and achieving positive results in the most cost-efficient manner for her clients. Emily also secured two consecutive zero workers’ compensation awards in less than a month, which are very difficult to come by in Illinois. In her free time, Emily enjoys golfing and is a competitive rower with the Chicago Rowing Foundation.

Both Tim and Emily embody firm culture and values with a client-focused approach and commitment to their communities. 

Please join us in congratulating Tim and Emily.
