Law Firm Member Madeleine Weldon-Linne: "Today about 20% of our firm’s cases are assigned by clients who gave our firm a chance because of our WBE status.”
Madeleine Weldon-Linne authored an article that was featured in the ABA Book published in July 2011: The Road to Independence: A Woman’s Guide to Forming Her Own Law Firm. The book highlights the history of national law firms founded by women. Madeleine Weldon-Linne describes her decision to start her WBE law firm and her affiliation with NAMWOLF. "My attitude toward the WBE certification process changed when I associated with the National Association of Minority & Women Owned Law Firms (NAMWOLF). I learned that NAMWOLF’s affiliation with similar law firms and an enthusiastic collaboration toward the goal of providing opportunities to WBE/MBE law firms was the key to securing work from clients who would not otherwise consider a ten person WBE or MBE firm. Keeping the client by providing superior legal services has been our responsibility. Today about 20% of our firm’s cases are assigned by clients who gave our firm a chance because of our WBE status.”
A NAMWOLF member since 1998, Weldon-Linne & Vogt attorneys practice in state and federal courts in Chicago and all surrounding counties. The firm concentrates on the defense of complex matters including medical malpractice, contract disputes, and personal injury lawsuits.
In October 2011, Weldon-Linne & Vogt will be moving to new offices at 11 South LaSalle Street, 16th Floor, Chicago, Illinois 60602.
In December 2011, Weldon-Linne & Vogt will be celebrating its 15th anniversary as a WBE firm.
