“Moving to Shive-Hattery from another firm was one of the best decisions I made. My career didn’t just pick up where I’d left off – it really took off! This is because Shive-Hattery provided me with endless opportunities to serve in leadership roles or to pursue those interests that really keep me engaged. And living and working in Bloomington-Normal has been fantastic these last ten years. There’s plenty of good entertainment options, but still a safe cozy place that my family can call home.”
