Costello Legal has hired two experienced attorneys to the practice; Jared Reynolds, and Lucas Park. Each brings a valuable and unique perspective to our practice.
Founder and Managing Partner Dan Costello extolled their value to the firm in recent comments, “We are really excited to have both Jared and Lucas come aboard, they bring unique methods, thought, and leadership qualities that are hard to find.” Dan said of Jared: “Jared comes to us after working on the plaintiff’s side, often for those who suffered catastrophic injuries. His opponents on the defense side held him in the highest regard, and quite frankly they told us he was a standout young attorney.
His desire to act as a first chair attorney on the defense side persuaded him to make the jump, and we are really excited to give him that opportunity immediately.” Jared had previously worked at one of the premiere plaintiff’s firms in Illinois handling nursing home, medical malpractice, and general negligence cases where he helped his clients recover over $12 million in settlements and awards. He also worked at the Cook County public defenders office where he had the opportunity to second chair two felony jury trials.
The firm is lucky enough to have a second stand-out attorney to join this month as well. Dan Costello gushed about the new addition: “I’m thrilled to have Lucas come over to the firm from the Illinois Attorney General’s office after gaining significant experience with the Land of Lincoln Legal Aid and Winnebago State’s attorney’s office. His experience as a veteran of the United States Army including deployment twice to Afghanistan gives him life experience that is invaluable. I have no doubt that his leadership skills and service focus from his military experience will transition very well to our team approach at the firm. He will be assisting on some of the largest and most complex cases in the office.” After serving in the military, Lucas attended the Illinois Institute of Technology and obtained his bachelor’s degree in industrial technology, which will be an invaluable addition to the firm on complex products and construction litigation.
We can’t wait for both Jared and Lucas to meet our clients, and provide them with the top quality legal service that they have grown accustomed to from our firm.
