About Stephen

Learn Stephen’s areas of practice.

I have lived and practiced law in the Champaign-Urbana area since 1979. I was raised on a farm north of Quincy in West Central Illinois. I was a Valedictorian of my (Warsaw, IL) high school class, then attended and graduated in 1973 from Illinois College (Jacksonville, IL) with Highest Honors and as a Phi Beta Kappa member. My majors were in Economics and Business and in German.

After College I attended the University of Illinois College of Law from which I graduated with a Juris Doctor degree in 1976. I was admitted to the practice of law before the Courts of the State of Illinois in 1976 and was an associate with the Carthage, IL law firm of Hartzell, Glidden, Tucker & Neff (1976-1979) before coming back to Champaign-Urbana. I am also admitted to practice in the following Federal Courts: the US District Court for the Central District of Illinois (1979), US Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit (1985), and the United States Supreme Court (1983). In October, 2000, I also received certification for completion of 20 hours of civil litigation mediation training conducted by the Center for Analysis of Alternative Dispute Resolutions.

I am a past member of Kiwanis and AMBUCS. I also served for six years on the Board of Prairie Center Health Systems, Inc., serving as its President for 2 years. I am past member of the Board of Governors of the Champaign County Bar Association during part of which time I  also served as Vice-President. I am married to Paula Sheffler, who is a retired Nurse and I have two step-sons and four step-grandchildren.
