Novack and Macey partner John F. Shonkwiler has been recognized as one of the “40 Illinois Attorneys Under 40 To Watch” by the Law Bulletin Publishing Company, publishers of Chicago Lawyer magazine and the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin. Shonkwiler is described as “a listener, innovator and problem solver” in this highly regarded annual publication.
This year, the Law Bulletin reviewed more than 1,000 nominations in search of that elite group of attorneys who are passionate about their work, clients, and community, and who are unique, both in terms of their character and the results they obtain. The Law Bulletin’s profile on Shonkwiler highlights his various impressive victories for clients, including the Trump Organization and a NASCAR racing team. It recognizes Shonkwiler’s service as Novack and Macey’s hiring partner and a member of its first Marketing Committee and, outside the legal realm, his volunteer work with Chicago Lights, a nonprofit that feeds, educates and empowers disadvantaged Chicagoans. The Law Bulletin feature quotes James Fahey of Sorling, Northrup, Hanna, Cullen & Cochran, an attorney who nominated Shonkwiler for the 40 Under 40 distinction, as stating, “John never gives you the feeling he is too busy to listen or help,” and praising Shonkwiler’s attention to detail and accessibility.
Novack and Macey recognizes Shonkwiler as an integral player in the firm’s continued success. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 312.419.6900.
