Bill Gullberg is an experienced litigator in a range of legal matters.  The difference Bill brings to the case is a passion for representing the rights, freedom, and property of his clients.  Experience and professionalism is one thing - experience and professionalism with a true passion and focus for achieving a just and favorable result for clients is something very different.

Bill's professional history includes 18 years of practice in Chicago, where he started out at Continental Illinois Bank, joined a law firm on LaSalle Street and eventually formed his own firm.  Bill moved his practice to downstate Illinois in 1997 and in 2007, he formed the  partnership Gullberg & Box.

Bill handles worker's compensation cases for injured workers, personal injury, dui, and criminal matters, as well as a wide range of business and commercial litigation.  Bill's background and experience as a litigator also allows him to give business and personal clients advice on protecting their assets, estate planning, and protecting them against claims and law suits in the first place.

Bill resides in Kirkwood with his wife, Christine.  He is active in the community and currently is President of the Village of Kirkwood.  Prior to that he served as a Village Trustee  (alderman) for 10 years.  Bill's interests include making Windsor furniture.  He is a member of Harvest Bible Chapel and was a team member of a mission trip to Romania where he helped construct a soccer field.
