The Firm

Founded in 1970 by Cliff Ganan and Jay Shapiro, Ganan & Shapiro has been advising clients in workers’ compensation matters for over forty years.  Since founding, Ganan & Shapiro has steadily grown in size and expertise. What started out as two entrepreneurial attorneys has grown to include seven partners and seventeen associates spread between two offices. Our size has allowed us to provide greater coverage across Illinois, while still being nimble enough to adapt to our client’s needs.

 With offices in Chicago and Peoria, Illinois, our attorneys are able to cover every venue in the State. Our Chicago office is located in the LaSalle Law Centre; an exposed brick building located in the famous River North neighborhood.  With the building’s rich history and historic details, this unique four-story building has been home to the firm since shortly after inception. With the purchase of the LaSalle Law Centre, Ganan & Shapiro has been able to limit our fixed-cost overhead, which has allowed us to pass the savings along to our clients. That savings is routinely passed along via seminars, guidance on particular cases and through our hourly billing rate; which is competitive for the field.

 Our Peoria office was founded in 2001 and is located in the Associated Bank building.  As our practice has grown, our Peoria office has been essential in covering much of the downstate area. Despite this separate location, our attorneys share the same vision and goals, providing great service and advice to our clients.
