Upchurch joins Lavelle Law team of attorneys
SCHAUMBURG -- Attorney Joseph O. Upchurch has been hired at Lavelle Law. A graduate of the UIC John Marshall Law School, Upchurch had previously clerked at the Schaumburg firm.
"Having seen Joseph work during his year with us as a clerk clearly confirmed his ability in dealing with a number of areas of the law," said Ted McGinn, Lavelle Law managing partner. "We are fortunate to add him to our team and expect him to be a significant contributor to several of our practice groups."
Upchurch received his undergraduate degree in economics from the University of Iowa while also working nearly full-time serving as a research assistant at the Study of Group Processes Laboratory, and serving as philanthropy chair for Sigma Alpha Epsilon. At UIC John Marshall, he was a multiple-time entry on the dean's list, was president of the Intellectual Property Law Society, and received multiple scholarships, including one from the DuPage Bar Association. He was also a contributing author on several legal articles.
Upchurch will work across multiple groups including litigation, business, personal injury and family law.
