Firm History

In 1970, two young attorneys set out to open their own firm and Ganan & Shapiro was born. Cliff Ganan and Jay Shapiro quickly began developing a practice focused on workers’ compensation.  As the firm grew, they specialized in defending businesses in workers’ compensation and related subrogation matters throughout the state. In 2001, the firm opened an office in Peoria to better serve clients doing business throughout Illinois. Since that time, the firm has grown and has developed a thriving practice with the expertise our clients need. Over the past four decades, Ganan & Shapiro has distinguished itself as a leader in the field of workers’ compensation and is truly the best choice to defend your case.
