| Practice Description: |
Francis M Brady graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1978 and from Loyola University Chicago Law School in 1981. He commenced his practice in Bloomington, Illinois after being admitted to the Illinois Bar in November of 1981, representing a variety of litigants in civil and criminal matters ranging from misdemeanors to personal injury, breach of contract, employment disputes, and civil rights. He tried cases to jury and bench verdict before the State and Federal Courts and prosecuted appeals in those same systems.
In January 1990, he came to Chicago where he concentrated his practice in the defense of Illinois business against workers' compensation claims. Along with John Connolly and Beverly Masuda, he launched, in May 1997, the Law Firm of Brady Connolly and Masuda, dedicated to the interests of employers not only in workers' compensation cases but across a broad spectrum. From the three founders, the firm has grown to over 30 lawyers practicing out of two offices: the main location in Chicago and a satellite office downstate in Bloomington-Normal.
Mr. Brady and the firm have won, and continue to win, decisions for clients against high exposures in cases of severe injury and fatality.
