The Gori Law Firm this month opened a new office in Belleville, located at 6 E. Washington St. near the St. Clair County Courthouse.
Beth Gori, principal partner and owner of the firm, said the firm has earned nearly $3 billion in settlements and awards in its 12 years in business. The pandemic has presented unique challenges in the past year.
“Like many businesses throughout the region, we have worked to keep our staff employed at full capacity throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes taking advantage of the Federally-funded PPP Loan program, allowing flexible time to work from home, flexible in-office hours, and shifting our practice to working with clients and the courts remotely where possible,” said Gori. “Many of our people are irreplaceable. While the past year has seen a rise in unemployment throughout the region, we are grateful that we were able to retain our full staff.”
Managing Partner Sara Salger, who joined The Gori Law firm as one of its first attorneys in 2008, said she is proud of how far the firm has come in 12 years.
“We now have clients and attorneys throughout the country, and all of them have contributed to our success. With nearly 200 employees and now eight locations, with the addition of the Belleville office, we’re confident in our ability to provide continued results,” said Salger. “As we settle into 2021 we will also remain steadfast in our commitment to supporting our communities and doing whatever we can to help stop the spread of the virus so that we can all thrive for years to come.”
Based in Edwardsville, The Gori Law Firm has expanded its practice over the years, now handling cases related to personal injury, commercial litigation, medical malpractice, pharmaceutical litigation, workers’ compensation and real estate law.
The firm’s other offices are in Granite City, Ill., New York, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Washington, D.C., and Orlando.
