Cassandra Shashaty began working at Dworkin and Maciariello as a clerk during her last year of law school at DePaul University College of Law. During her clerkship Cassandra gained hands on experience of the inner-workings of workers’ compensation, and was always willing to help. She realized how important it was that the hard working people of Illinois are not taken advantage of by insurance companies or their employer.
“I love being able to assist clients in navigating the workers’ compensation process and getting them the benefits and the justice they deserve,” Cassandra said. “I was able to negotiate with an insurance company to get a lump sum payment for a man who was living on the bare minimum for the past 12 weeks, just in time for his birthday. The joy in the man’s voice made was a great reminder of why I do what I do.”
With her sharp problem-solving skills as well as her passion and empathy for her clients, Cassandra is an expedient and skilled attorney. In her free time she enjoys running, cooking, spending time with family, and rooting on her Florida State Seminoles.
