ZRFM Adds Litigation, Estates, Local Government Lawyers

Zukowski, Rogers, Flood & McArdle, the largest law firm in McHenry County, Illinois, has added three lawyers who will assist clients in the firm’s civil litigation, estates and trusts, local government, personal injury, and business transactions practices. The new attorneys bring ZRFM’s lawyer count to 21.

David J. Loughnane has practiced law since 1972 in Illinois and Wisconsin.

He is a certified mediator and is counsel to the Amateur Hockey Association of Illinois.

Andrew W. Holstine has practiced law since 2001. Holstine joins ZRFM after working as a business lawyer for a Northbrook-based estate planning boutique. He focuses on gift tax planning, legacy planning, estate and trust administration, succession planning, and business transactional work. He is vice president of the Chicago Farmers, a group of professionals and investors interested in production agriculture and agribusiness.

William C. Westfall is a first year associate concentrating on local government law and municipal traffic code enforcement. Westfall is a 2011 graduate of Northern Illinois University College of Law and a 2008 graduate of the University of Notre Dame.
