Injured workers and their representatives lost a leader of the legal profession with the passing of Kim Presbrey of Illinois. Kim was one of the charter founders of the Workplace Injury Workers Litigation Group (WILG).
Throughout his career, Kim sought justice for his clients. He assisted other attorneys through his guiding leadership to advance the interests of a safer work environment.
My friendship with Kim began in the formative days of WILG and lasted throughout his entire career. He would often zealously call me late at night on the weekend just to keep me updated on important issues concerning workers' compensation so that readers of this blog could be updated on urgent developments of major significance.
Kim's passing is a major loss to the workers' compensation community. Our sincere sympathies go out to his family and friends, all of which he dearly loved.
