Northern Illinois University College of Law alumni Diana M. Law (2004) and Gary C. Pinter (2007) are being honored as “40 under 40” attorneys by the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin.

The Law Bulletin Publishing company conducts the “40 under 40” survey annually to determine who they believe are the “up and coming” young attorneys in Illinois younger than the age of 40.

Forty attorneys are chosen – from hundreds of nominations each year – based on professional achievements, passion and a desire to help the community.

Law serves her clients in the area of elder law and estate planning, including any related litigation such as guardianships, financial exploitation and contested estates. She is a partner of the firm Law ElderLaw, LLP in Aurora, Ill., and was appointed by the governor in 2012 as the Kane County public guardian and public administrator.

Pinter practices in a variety of areas of civil tort litigation in both Illinois and Missouri including the defense of matters involving asbestos and toxic torts, products liability, premises liability, trucking and transportation claims and professional liability. A partner in the Edwardsville office of Heyl Royster P.C., Pinter has played a key role in the firm’s efforts to implement legislative changes related to laws governing worker’s compensation claims and the impact on employers.

“We are very proud of Diana and Gary,” said Mark Cordes, dean of the NIU College of Law. “They join an impressive list of NIU alums and faculty who have received this highly regarded honor, each making an indelible mark on the legal profession and in their respective communities.”
