Barry, of Woodstock, partner and associate, respectively, of Zukowski, Rogers, Flood & McArdle in Crystal Lake, are co-authors of "Pursuing Claims for Grief Under the Wrongful Death Act," an article which appears in the January 2013 issue of the Illinois Bar Journal, the monthly magazine of the Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA).
