Jeremy Sackett is a native of Highland, Illinois. He received his law degree at Southern Illinois University, and his legal career began in the SIUC elderly clinic where he offered his clients the comfort and confidence of knowing their financial and health care needs were in order. During this time, he also had his first taste of high-stakes litigation, helping to secure a judgment after trial for a client in excess of $200,000.
After returning to the Madison County area, he joined a small firm as an associate and gained invaluable experience handling a full range of legal cases, including personal injury, criminal defense, family law, wills, and estate planning.
Jeremy then spent a five-year term in service of the citizens of Madison County as an Assistant State’s Attorney, prosecuting misdemeanors, felonies, DUIs, and domestic batteries. He tried over a dozen cases to jury in both misdemeanor and felony court. He conducted numerous statutory summary suspension hearings and hearings on orders of protection as well.
Now Jeremy brings his litigation-intensive experience to the firm of Swanson & Sackett, P.C. He once again finds himself in the service of the citizens of Madison County… just one client at a time.
