        150 150 Clifford Horwitz

        LeadingLawyers Magazine recently published their Consumer Edition for 2016, featuring an article on Clifford and Mitchell Horwitz!

        The article titled, “The Horwitz Brothers – They’re Far Smarter Than the Average Bear – and Lawyer” takes a look into the development of not only the brothers’ unique focuses in injury and workers’ compensation law, but also the unique legal strategies they have developed along the way – strategies that shed light on how devoted they are to helping those who have been injured in Illinois.

        We are proud to congratulate Clifford Horwitz, Mitchell Horwitz, Marc Perper, Wayne Newman, Jay Luchsinger, Michael Wierzbicki and Michael Carter, seven partners at our firm, who have been honored by their peers as Leading Lawyers, a distinction earned by fewer than five percent of all lawyers licensed to practice law in Illinois. We also are proud to congratulate Tyler Berberich who was selected as an Emerging Lawyer – a distinction earned by less than 2% of all lawyers licensed to practice law in Illinois.

        We are especially excited to congratulate Mitchell Horwitz, who earned the honor of being listed as one of the Top 10 Workers’ Compensation Lawyers in Illinois. Mitch was voted No. 6 – moving up 4 spots from last year – through a survey of his peers conducted by LeadingLawyers.

        Winter Tips for Staying Warm While Working Outdoors

        150 150 Clifford Horwitz

        The temperatures are dropping and workers and laborers of all kinds still work outside in the cold every day. Layering clothing is necessary during this time of year to stay warm and dry. In general, the rule of thumb for working in a cold environment is to get lots of insulation between you and the environment, and to remove that insulation layer by layer when you get warmer. You need a clothing system that allows you to shed layers quickly and easily before you get damp from perspiration. Why layering? Several lighter layers will keep you warmer than one very thick one. Air is trapped between each layer and warmed by your body, surrounding you with a self-generated heat shield that insulates you from the cold.
