Police & Fire Pension Law

January 1st, 2012

Police and fire pension boards are the core of Reimer Dobrovolny & Karlson’s practice.  Our firm represents more than 150 police and fire pension funds across Illinois.  Based on his experience representing Illinois police and fire pension boards, our founding member, Richard J. Reimer, was selected to serve as General Counsel for the Illinois Public Pension Fund Association (“IPPFA”). Whether your pension board requires representation at meetings, in disability hearings, or in a more specialized context, Reimer Dobrovolny & Karlson’s attorneys are ready and able to help.

Today, Illinois’ police and fire pension funds are under tremendous scrutiny. As pension fund trustees, you have a personal fiduciary duty to ensure you are acting in the best interest of the pension fund. Experienced legal representation is not a luxury – it is essential. Our firm’s attorneys have represented pension funds in hundreds of disability, IDOI compliance, and other administrative hearings. Reimer Dobrovolny & Karlson’s trial attorneys have successfully litigated several matters in court and on appeal (including municipal underfunding, administrative review, and injunction cases).

In addition to representing police and fire pension funds, Reimer Dobrovolny & Karlson’s attorneys are frequently sought to teach pension fund trustees about Illinois police and fire pension law.
