Steven Getty (Associate)

PRINT

Steve focuses his practice in the representation of employers in Workers' Compensation claims.

Steve began his practice as an Assistant State's Attorney in the Winnebago County State's Attorney's Office. As a prosecutor, he handled matters ranging from misdemeanor criminal charges to felony cases. He handled all aspects of the criminal prosecution, from plea negotiations to obtaining arrest warrants and charging. Additionally, he prosecuted cases through to jury trial and sentencing when a guilty verdict was obtained. As a result, Steve has extensive jury trial experience in both first-chair and second-chair positions. Further, he litigated many substantive legal motions, including motions to suppress physical evidence and statements as well as civil statutory summary suspension hearings. He also assisted smaller communities in Winnebago County by serving as a liaison between the State's Attorney's Office and their respective police departments. Steve continued his practice in the public sector most recently as an Assistant State's Attorney in the McHenry County State's Attorney's Office where he focused on the prosecution of Domestic Violence cases and the Mental Health Court.

Steve received his Juris Doctor from the Thomas M. Cooley Law School in 2011 and his Bachelor of Arts from Western Illinois University in 2008.
