The workers comp process is a lot more difficult than I would have ever imagined and I am glad to have found a good lawyer. Attorney Fred Beer help guide me through a long a difficult time.

Thereafter, the insurance company paid for all medial bills, lost wages/TTD at the correct rate, and a settlement for permanent partial disability.

He is great. I recommend him for anyone interested in his care. -Dr. Malaku T., M.D. for Employee Elizabeth
Workers’ compensation client involved in a highly disputed work injury case.
If you are looking for an attorney with integrity and an individual that will communicate a real sense of honesty, hire Fred Beer. What was the most helpful was not only his ability to explain the law, in my case workman's comp; but his compassion for his client. -Fran
Teacher slipped and fell on a freshly waxed school cafeteria floor and suffered serious injuries to her hip and back. The employer school district initially denied claim. Fred convinced the school district to accept the claim and to pay for the surgery, lost wages/TTD, and settlement for permanent partial disability, but the school district kept delaying ultimate settlement due to various disputed treatment and other issues.
Mr. Beer handled a workman's comp. case that clearly followed Illinois guidelines for such a case. My employer, however, termed it an "unfortunate accident" and prolonged the settlement of the case for five years and seven months. Finally, two and a half years into the case, my employer agreed it was, indeed, workman's comp. However, it took another three years before we could get contracts that reflected agreed upon terms of settlement, and those contracts were only achieved because Mr. Beer assumed strong leadership in directing the final resolution of this matter. During this lengthy process, Mr. Beer worked tirelessly and persistently with all parties in an effort to reach a timely conclusion. In all my contacts with him, he was professional and showed consideration for my case. I always felt I was getting good legal advice and that he would work in my best interests; additionally, phone messages/e-mail inquires were returned promptly. Mr. Beer's experience in this area also helped me keep the process in perspective, especially in terms of the long timeline. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Beer to anyone needing his specialized expertise. -Diane

I've met and dealt with quite a few attorneys and Fred Beer is not your typical attorney. Fred was honest, and easy to talk to. He really knows his stuff, and was not pushy at all. I would recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney you can trust has your best interests in mind and not their own. -Andy
Fred advises and assists a sales commission employee obtain his sales commission.
Over the course of my sales career I have on occasion found myself in situations where I had to defend my right for a sales commission. While this can be a stressful and unpleasant position to find yourself there are proactive actions you can take. Thanks to the outstanding legal counsel from Fred Beer I was well advised of my rights. Fred helped me to fully understand Illinois’ statute regarding sales commissions. He walked me through all of the required evidence that I would need to ensure that the responsible company would pay their obligation. Leveraging the knowledge gained from Fred I was successfully paid my full sales commission. Fred Beer has an outstanding work ethic, is personable, and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Fred for legal counsel. -Brian
