Heyl Royster has served the legal needs of individuals and businesses throughout Illinois and the surrounding region for more than 100 years. With broad experience in litigation and transactional law, our attorneys are known for their commitment to representing our clients' interests, and our practice areas have earned a solid reputation for success. Our belief is the best result is achieved by viewing our clients and attorneys as a team.
We have offices in six major population centers in Illinois – Peoria, Chicago, Edwardsville, Rockford, Springfield and Urbana – which allow us to appear in any Illinois state or federal court quickly, effectively, and cost-efficiently for our clients. Our trial experience and on-the-ground knowledge of Illinois judges, lawyers, and jurors is particularly advantageous for our clients in evaluating and defending litigation. Our attorneys partner with clients to generate innovative strategies designed to achieve client goals. With strategically located and well-staffed offices throughout Illinois, the firm quickly identifies important issues and efficiently provides regional client-centric services with national impact. The size of the firm, the style of its practice, and the firm’s diverse clientele have allowed us to develop lawyers who are motivated, prepared and focused to meet client expectations.
Through our lawyers' participation in state and national bar and industry activities, we not only identify, but help develop trends in the law which we believe will be of benefit to our clients and the defense bar. Collectively, the lawyers in our firm spend hundreds of volunteer hours each year as part of our commitment to improving the civil justice system.
