Background / Philosophy

Illinois Law Group is a collegial group of Attorneys who support each other by sharing work and referring client matters among eachother to ensure that clients are served by lawyers with the strongest skills for the necessary area of practice.
In 2004, Founding members, Gerard Stocco, Jeff Gutman & Bob Toote-lian, former associates within a Chicago general practice law firm, de-veloped solo practices with varying areas of concentration. As solo practitioners, they continued to support each other, sharing work and referring clients to the attorney best suited to serve the clients' legal needs. This spirit of collegiality is the bedrock on which Illinois Law Group has developed and grown, serving attorneys and clients equally.
Today, Attorneys Stocco and Gutman have expanded this network, with more than 50 practices now participating in the network, bringing the benefits of a large firm to our local practices.
