Our Firm in the News

Here is an article about a dram shop case we filed last week. I won’t add much to what is in the article because the case is pending. It should be noted, though, that a bar only needs to be “a cause” not “the main cause” or “the biggest cause” of someone’s intoxication (although it has to be more than de minimis).

How an Illinois Workers Comp Lawyer Can Help Your Case

I’ve wanted to write this post for a long time. Some people don’t understand why or how a workers comp lawyer can help their case. On my new Rock Island Workers Compensation Attorney Blog, I’ve written a post explaining what we do and how it can help clients. Check it out.

New Blog Announcement!!

In addition to my work with the QC Injury Lawyers Blog, I’m also starting:


The Rock Island Workers Comp Blog

(wild, raucous applause)

It’s aimed at clients, potential clients, and any laypeople who want some basic info about Illinois Workers Compensation. It’s probably too basic for most lawyers, but it serves a different purpose than this blog.

I’m excited – it’s been fun thinking of content for the new blog. Any suggestions?

Verdict makes news – again

I blogged the other day about a jury trial I won in Henry County Illinois. There is another article about the trial and verdict in the Kewanee Star-Courier today. This one doesn’t need registration, but it has been very difficult to load for some reason.

Michael Warner & Associates Updated Website

My firm, Michael J. Warner & Associates, just updated our other website, – check it out. Not only do you get to see some of our success record, but you get pictures of my shining, happy face! Actually, I seem to have awkwardly positioned myself against a judge’s bench in the Rock Island Justice Center, but it’s worth a look nonetheless.
