Toney is chair of the firm's statewide Workers' Compensation Practice. He concentrates his practice in the areas of workers' compensation, third-party defense of employers, workers' compensation appeals, and protecting workers' compensation liens.
Toney works out of the Champaign and Edwardsville offices covering a vast majority of the state of Illinois for workers' compensation docket and trial coverage purposes. Based upon the current makeup and system put in place by the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission, Toney has become familiar with most, if not all, of the Arbitrators and Commissioners who have been appointed by the IWCC.
Toney takes great pride in working directly with employers and their insurance carriers in order to build an important relationship and foster a team mentality and approach to defending workers' compensation claims. This includes consistent and constant communication and on-site meetings to enable and form the trust within the team which has proven to be an important formula in protecting the client's most important asset - the client's business itself.
