October 10, 2012
Franczek Radelet is proud to announce that our partner, Jeff Nowak, has been named to the Law Bulletin Publishing Company’s 40 Illinois Attorneys Under 40 to Watch in 2012. Jeff was selected for this honor out of more than 1,250 attorney nominations from around the State. The recognition honors 40 Illinois attorneys younger than 40 who exemplify “intelligence, passion, success in the office, a desire to help the community and, most importantly, a willingness to work hard at one of the country’s most important professions,” according to the publisher of the Chicago Lawyer and Law Bulletin.
Serving as co-chair of our labor and employment practice team, Jeff counsels our clients in all aspects of labor and employment law and litigates single- and multi-plaintiff matters relating to employment discrimination and traditional labor claims. Moreover, Jeff has become a go-to advisor for employers dealing with legal issues arising out of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Jeff is the author of the firm’s FMLA Insights blog, which has earned awards from the ABA Journal and LexisNexis as one of the best legal blogs in the country.
As Franczek Radelet partner David Radelet notes, Jeff “is one of the most gifted, passionate, and likeable attorneys that I have ever had the privilege to work with in my 30+ years of private practice.” Our clients and other attorneys agree. Recognized for his commitment to his clients, his practice, and his community, Jeff was described by nominators as a “gifted advocate in the courtroom,” “trusted business partner,” and an attorney who is “acutely aware of [his client’s] business goals and the impact employment decisions have on their operations.” As others point out, Jeff relies on his exceptional legal knowledge and strategic thinking to address the issues at hand, yet he also clearly is invested in his clients for the long term.
