Firm Specializes in Employment and Employee Benefits/ERISA Law

Algonquin (February 2, 2008) – The law firm of Aiken & Aiken announces the opening of its boutique law firm located in Algonquin, Illinois.

Sisters, Sheila and Michele Aiken, opened their firm locally to help businesses establish and grow their companies by providing advice and services in the areas of employment and employee benefits law.

“We are a local boutique firm committed to providing our clients with personalized service through timely communication, education in current developments, and superior legal representation,” Sheila said. “We partner with our clients to provide strategic, innovative and affordable employment and benefits solutions.”

Both Sheila and Michele received their J.D. from the John Marshall Law School. In addition, they both have their Masters of Law-Employee Benefits from the John Marshall Law School.

Both women came to law after pursuing other careers. Sheila spent over ten years working for Fortune 500 companies as a human resources manager with global responsibilities. She has an extensive background in corporate employment law and benefits including working through all types of employment matters and designing and working with benefits plans of all types.

Michele has worked in both benefits and risk management for both mid-size and Fortune 500 companies. These experiences are useful in their law practice, Michele said.

“I want to work in an area of law where I could work directly with my clients so that I can understand their business, help them understand the law and get the best possible results for them.  Rather than go to a big downtown law firm, now clients will have access to a local boutique firm.”
