The Peoria-based law firm of Quinn, Johnston, Henderson, Pretorius and Cerulo is pleased to welcome Mitch Gilfillan at its newest partner. Mitch practices law in several areas: civil litigation defense, corporations and transactions, family law, estate planning and sports agency management. His clients range from insurance companies and business owners to individuals in the Peoria area with their personal, legal concerns. Drawing on his past experience as an NCAA Division I basketball player and coach, Mitch also lends legal advice to collegiate coaches and athletic directors.
Mitch’s successes and enthusiasm for his law practice have not gone unnoticed: the Law Bulletin Publishing Company has named him an “Illinois Emerging Lawyer,” and for his pro bono work the Peoria County Bar Association named him their 2017 Peoria County Young Lawyer of the Year.
“Mitch’s blend of energy, drive and intelligence is not easily surpassed,” says firm partner Kevin Miller. “He demonstrates a profound dedication to his work, his team and most importantly, his clients. We proudly welcome him as a new firm partner.”
Mitch is committed to giving back to his community and his profession: he serves on multiple boards including the Pediatric Resource Center, Children’s Hospital of Illinois, Peoria Friendship House and Peoria County Bar Association. He also assists with the St. Philomena’s Men’s Club, IHSA March Madness Volunteer Committee and helps to organize the Strides for Justice 5K Race to benefit Prairie State Legal Services.
