Practice Description:  
A card-carrying, lifetime member of the United Auto Workers union, Craig L. Kavensky has developed a winning track record for securing workers their rightful compensation after they've been injured on the job.

Mr. Kavensky's recognition by the UAW is evidence of his aptitude for winning. So too is the continuing prosperity of his clients and their families, who are able to weather the trauma of workplace injury because Mr. Kavensky looks out for their best interests.

His commitment to fighting for the best and most just outcome in labor matters is admired by the 60,000 attorneys in Sullivan's Law Directory, who have voted Mr. Kavensky a Leading Lawyer, an honor given to only the top five percent of lawyers in Illinois. He also holds a Distinguished® peer review rating with Martindale-Hubbell, the oldest and most prestigious law directory in the United States.

Mr. Kavensky has argued several cases on appeal that have changed workers' compensation law in Illinois, including Jacobs v. Industrial Commission, which enabled workers injured during seasonal, part-time jobs to combine their earnings with earnings from a concurrent full-time position, even though laid off from the concurrent employment at the time of injury, in calculating average weekly wage.

Whether he is arguing in court, counseling clients on recent revisions to the law, or ensuring that a client is paid accurately and on time, Mr. Kavensky puts in long hours of preparation and hard work to ensure that his clients are properly represented in every respect.

His work ethic and resulting success have been employed steadily for decades by the UAW, which has worked with Winstein Kavensky & Cunningham LLC for almost 50 years.

Heralding from a family of lawyers that includes his father, a respected personal injury and workers' compensation attorney, Mr. Kavensky has been exposed to the practicalities of the law from a young age. If you or a loved one has suffered a workplace injury, you can make use of Mr. Kavensky's broad knowledge and experience by contacting the law firm of Winstein Kavensky & Cunningham LLC at (309) 794-1515.
