Legal help when you need it most in Springfield and Decatur, Illinois at Shay + Associates Law Firm

A History of Legal Experience

At many personal injury firms, attorneys encourage clients to accept the insurance company’s settlement offer to avoid going to trial — even if litigation could yield a better result. At Shay & Associates Law Firm, LLC, we are not just lawyers — we are trial lawyers. Our lead attorney, Timothy Shay, has tried more than fifty jury trials to verdict.  Tim has further arbitrated over 200 workers’ compensation claims before the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission and has argued appeals before the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission and the Illinois Appellate Courts.  Tim has also litigated personal injury lawsuits in all three Districts of the Illinois Federal Court system.

We are dedicated to helping people who have suffered due to careless drivers, medical mistakes, unsafe products, and negligence and wrongdoing of all kinds. We have established an outstanding record of success in helping our valued clients obtain the compensation they need and deserve.

Our attorneys’ qualifications are both individually and collectively strong. We invite you to learn more about our team of lawyers by clicking on their profile links below:

We Tell it Like it is

If anyone benefits from inflated expectations in a personal injury case, it is not the client. We tell it like it is so that you know where you stand and what you can expect in terms of likely outcomes. If your case has merit and we believe we can help you secure a substantial reward or settlement, we will let you know. If we don’t think the legal issues line up in your favor, we will candidly explain the challenges and help you evaluate your next steps.
