Led by Attorney Jon Robinson, who has over 35 years litigating cases throughout the United States, BRE prides itself as being one of the premier litigation firms in Central Illinois. Mr. Robinson is joined by Attorney Chris Ellis who came to Decatur after practicing in Washington, D.C. and Chicago, IL with the law firm of Ross, Dixon & Bell, one of the country's premier national litigation firms. During his tenure at RDB, Mr. Ellis handled and participated in a number of highly complex commercial litigation disputes, as well as product liability and antitrust cases. BRE recently added Attorney Tim Tighe who is a well-known face at the Macon County Courthouse by virtue of his experience with the Macon County State's Attorney's office.
