For the second year in a row, Olga has been appointed to serve as a member of the Section Council of the ISBA Workers’ Compensation Law Section. This Section Council is comprised of attorneys practicing on behalf of Petitioners as well as in defense of workers’ compensation claims in Illinois. The Section Council is also comprised of Arbitrators of the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission, and a Justice of the Appellate Court.

Eames Law Group is extremely proud of Olga’s commitment to the law, and her community. As a Ukrainian personal injury attorney in Chicago, she has stayed involved in her community and consistently advocated for these underrepresented populations. Promoting justice for people who do not know their legal rights or do not have access to much-needed legal services is a passion for Olga, and this was one of the main reasons Olga decided to pursue a career in law.
