Christine Marie Ory

Wheaton workers' compensation lawyer

I have been working in the workers' compensation field since 1975. For almost 20 years of that time, I have been an attorney helping my clients get the compensation they need after suffering work-related accidents. Before that, I spent 11 years on the other side, working as a claims adjuster and working in defense while working nights to get my undergraduate and legal degrees. That experience has helped me during the time I had my Wheaton, Illinois, workers' compensation practice.

Though I have enjoyed my work as an attorney for my clients, I have moved on to pursue a different aspect of my legal career. In September 2015, I was appointed by Gov. Bruce Rauner as Arbitrator to the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission. If you have any questions about your workers' compensation case, please contact workers' compensation attorney David W. Clark at 630-665-5678 or email him.
