CHICAGO, Feb. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The law firm of Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates, Ltd is very proud to announce the selection of attorney Jeffrey Schlapp to 2010 Illinois Rising Stars, as published in Super Lawyers® and Chicago Magazine 02/2010.
When it comes to nursing home abuse and neglect, having inside knowledge of the nursing home industry itself on behalf of the injured becomes a game-changer.
Formerly employed within the nursing home administrative industry for fourteen years, including Vice President of an Illinois chain, Jeff has obtained first-hand knowledge about the internal workings of nursing homes and the corporate "shell game" of ownership; vital to any successful prosecution of a nursing home abuse and/or neglect case.
Armed with an intimate understanding of both the state and federal regulations governing nursing home owners -- private or corporate -- as well as the deceitful accounting practices sanctioned by the nursing home industry, Jeff is dedicated to forcing change in the only manner a well-funded, well-lobbied industry understands; through the justice system, where he can affect future care by holding negligent and/or abusive facilities and their legitimate owners accountable and financially liable.
Where others often fail, Jeff is able to quickly determine who the true owners are of a facility, as well as who decided to deprive the facility and its residents of proper and adequate financial resources as part of the owners' scheme to place profit over care.
"These are people who defended our values and beliefs during World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam", Jeff says. "These are veterans, homemakers, retired ironworkers, farmers, bus drivers, cooks, mothers, fathers and grandparents. They are husbands and wives -- and all deserve their dignity -- in life and/or in death."
