Katy Giuffre Joins FeldmanWasser as Associate
SPRINGFIELD, Illinois ― In a move to broaden the wide-ranging services of their law firm, the partners of FeldmanWasser proudly announce the arrival of a new associate, Katy Giuffre.
Giuffre focuses her practice in family law and criminal defense. She recently earned a law degree from the University of Illinois College of Law in Urbana-Champaign. Giuffre holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Texas at Austin.
“We are very fortunate to have a talented associate join the seven other lawyers at our firm during this extremely busy time,” says Howard W. Feldman, the founding partner of FeldmanWasser. Feldman has long made it a priority to mentor attorneys early in their careers so they can become successful professionals.
During law school, Giuffre was a student attorney in a family advocacy clinic that focused on DCFS cases. Her internships included federal public defender work in the Northern District of Texas, where she assisted clients charged with federal criminal offenses. She also interned with the National Immigrant Justice Center in Chicago and with Land of Lincoln Legal Aid in Champaign, Illinois, where she worked on marriage dissolution proceedings. Giuffre was a Guardian Ad Litem volunteer for CASA of Travis County in Austin, Texas.
“I am excited to work within the community I now call home,” says Giuffre. “And I truly believe in FeldmanWasser’s mission to find smart, efficient solutions to clients’ legal problems.”
FeldmanWasser’s areas of practice include administrative and government law, business law, civil rights law, commercial real estate law, construction law, criminal defense, estate planning, family law, and labor and employment law.
Peer surveys conducted before Giuffre joined FeldmanWasser by Chicago-based Leading Lawyers recognized every one of the firm’s attorneys as among the state’s most highly distinguished practitioners. Other groups that have honored the firm’s attorneys include the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and Super Lawyers.
Giuffre is licensed to practice in Illinois and is admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Central District of Illinois. She is fluent in Spanish.
