The Attorney for Injured First Responders
As a society, we rely on the dedication and hard work of law enforcement for our safety. The daily duties of first responders often lead to dangerous situations, which can lead to injuries. In fact, police officers have one of the highest rates of injury and illness of any occupation. The attorneys at Woodruff Johnson & Evans Law Offices have aggressively fought for the rights of injured officers and their families throughout the state of Illinois for 25 years. Our firm is the proud recipient of the Blue and Gold Award for generosity and support to the ILFOP.
