Sgro Interviewed on Springfield Radio Podcast
Abby Sgro was recently interviewed on Springfield’s News/Talk 94.7 & 970 WMAY podcast. In addition to giving a general overview of some of HeplerBroom’s practice areas, she answered the interviewer’s questions about her own practice. Sgro enjoys working with local businesses to help them navigate their legal needs, as well as helping clients with estate planning. (In keeping with HeplerBroom’s COVID-19 emphasis on Help Us Help Others, she mentioned that she’s currently offering healthcare workers a discount on estate planning.) She also discussed some of the steps involved in adoptions, a type of legal work she particularly enjoys. When asked about cannabis law, Sgro pointed out that although she hasn’t yet handled any of those cases in the Springfield office, HB’s attorneys in all six offices work together to meet clients’ needs.
She noted that although the pandemic had changed where HB’s attorneys are working (in their homes instead of in office buildings), they are still handling client work every day, talking with clients and participating in hearings and depositions remotely. She did admit the one thing that had changed was her choice of clothing while working from home. The entire interview can be heard here.
Sgro is an associate in the firm’s Springfield office. In addition to adoptions and estate planning, she focuses on nursing home, corporate and business, and appellate work. She has been named an Emerging Lawyer by Illinois Leading Lawyers and is a past recipient of the Springfield Business Journal and Security Bank’s Woman of Influence Award. Sgro is also involved in a number of community activities, including Compass for Kids, St. John’s Children’s Hospital, the Illinois Innocence Project, and Sangamon County Pro Bono Committee.
