Kathryn (Katie) Casey
Katie is one of only a few Certified Elder Law Attorneys in Illinois. She has practiced exclusively in elder law since 2004. Her practice includes probate and trust administration, estate planning, special needs planning, long term care planning, Medicaid applications, and nursing home issues. She devotes a substantial portion of her time to helping families plan for the care of a loved one with a chronic care need. Katie represents her clients with a continuity of care that extends from the creation of a long term care plan through the execution, implementation, and administration of that plan.
Katie is a dedicated bike commuter and enjoys riding 20 miles roundtrip to the office each day. She also enjoys gardening on the weekends. Katie and her husband, a professor of philosophy at a local state university, reside in Chicago.
