A Legacy For Two Generations
Stephen M. Wauck
- Workers' Compensation Claims
Stephen began working for Berg & Berg in 2007 as a paralegal. The experience and confidence he gained at the firm encouraged him to enroll at the Chicago-Kent College of Law. While in law school, he clerked one summer for Judge Daniel Lynch of the Cook County Law Division, and spent another summer representing indigent defendants in major felony cases in Cook County. In his final year of law school he worked in the area of eminent domain.
Stephen currently concentrates his practice in workers' compensation claims, representing hundreds of injured employees from the filing of the case through trial, appeals, and final settlement. Stephen has also appeared in many civil cases ranging from rather small cases to million dollar claims. Stephen also handles a variety of criminal defense matters for the firm in felony, misdemeanor and traffic courts.
Stephen received his J.D., cum laude, from the Chicago-Kent College of Law. Before law school, Stephen earned his B.A. from the University of Dallas, with a major in history and a minor in German, graduating summa cum laude. After college, he lived for a year in Germany as a Fulbright scholar. Besides German, Stephen also speaks fluent Spanish.
In his free time, Stephen is an avid musician who plays Irish music on the flute and tin whistle.
