Welcome to Baker Baker + Krajewski LLC

Our firm is dedicated to working closely with you to create a solution that addresses your specific legal needs. Unfortunately, many law firms offer a one size fits all approach. At BBK we don’t subscribe to that approach. We believe that every problem is unique and that every client needs a solution tailored to serve their specific interests. While we have handled a wide variety of legal matters, our practice focuses on:

  1. Providing Employees with the knowledge and legal services they need to protect their rights in the workplace.
  2. Providing counseling and representation to those whose unemployment benefits are being challenged.
  3. Providing healthcare professionals with assistance in compliance related matters.

Contact Us

The first step in determining whether we can help you is for you to contact us. There are two excellent ways in which you can do so. You can call us at (217) 522-3445 or you can complete our contact us form and submit it to us. Either way you decide to contact us, we will want to get a bit of information from you so that we can make an initial determination of how it is best to initially communicate with you regarding your specific issues. At BBK we believe that every situation is unique and requires a unique approach. Our team will review all initial contact and let you know promptly how we can serve you.

Oftentimes people are concerned about submitting forms because they feel as though they are never read. At BBK our legal professionals review all forms that are submitted on a daily basis and we promptly respond to all electronically submitted inquiries.

Our clients often don’t know how much detail to go into in the initial communication. Sometimes people only provide a very small amount of information and, from time to time, we get submissions that have more information than we can review promptly. We have found that providing some examples helps our clients. The following are just some examples are intended merely as a guide.

  • On July 7th my boss told me that he was firing me. I did not expect it and he would not give me any reason. He did give me an agreement to look over and let him know within seven days if I would sign it. I am confused about what rights I have and whether I should sign the agreement. I have been with XYZ Corporation for 5 years and I don’t understand why this is happening.
  • I applied for unemployment and the local office approved my claim. My former employer is now challenging that decision and a hearing has been set for March 8th. I wanted to know what assistance you could provide to me.
  • My boss told me that I need to report for an investigatory interview tomorrow. I have an idea what it is about, however, I need to know whether I should participate and what I should say.
  • My boss has been making statements to me lately that have made me uncomfortable. I am not sure whether it constitutes harassment, however, I want to know what I should do to get him to stop.

Providing us with this amount of information allows us to get an initial sense of the issue and allows us to make sure that our follow up with you insures that you are to get the type of assistance that you need.
