Local residents co-author article in Illinois Bar Journal

CRYSTAL LAKE – Elizabeth Felt Wakeman of Lake in the Hills, and Gregory J. Barry of Woodstock, partner and associate, respectively, of Zukowski, Rogers, Flood & McArdle in Crystal Lake, are co-authors of “Pursuing Claims for Grief Under the Wrongful Death Act,” an article which appeared in the January 2013 issue of the Illinois Bar Journal, the monthly magazine of the Illinois State Bar Association.

In the article, the co-authors offer advice for trial lawyers about how to approach a 2007 statutory change, where juries are permitted to consider grief, sorrow, and mental suffering in wrongful death cases.
