Who are we

We are attorneys Daniel S. Alcorn, Elisa M. Nelson and Pamela S. Wilcox of Alcorn Nelson LLC in Galesburg, Illinois, and we have been resolving legal issues for clients throughout West Central Illinois for more than a quarter of a century.

If you face criminal charges, have a dispute with your employer, or if you have made the difficult decision to end your marriage, the lawyer you choose to work with will have a significant impact on the level of stress you experience throughout the process, not to mention the outcome of your case.

We employ a highly personalized, solutions-oriented approach that attempts to resolve matters as efficiently as possible while placing a premium on achieving the best possible outcome.

By maintaining regular contact with every client and taking the time to explain options, processes, next steps and likely outcomes when it makes sense, we reduce the amount of stress involved in tackling legal matters, and we help our clients move forward with their business objectives or personal lives.
