Kathryn Casey

Partner Kathryn Casey earned her Certification in Elder Law (CELA). The CELA certification has frequently been referred to as “the gold standard” for elder law and special needs practitioners.

 Kathryn,  who joins Janna Dutton and only a few other attorneys in Illinois with this certification,  has practiced exclusively in elder law since 2004 when she began representing clients in adult guardianships and elder abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation litigation. Since then, her practice has expanded to include probate and trust administration, estate planning, retirement benefits, special needs planning, long term care planning, Medicaid applications, and senior housing issues.
