More About Our Firm
CHICAGO – QPWB partner, Laura G. Postilion, obtained judgment for the defense on behalf of her clients, Rockford Memorial Hospital and Lori Ortberg, LCSW. Plaintiff alleged that 48 year old Keith Stanphill presented to Rockford Memorial Hospital's Employee Assistance Program [“EAP”] for an assessment and referral to a counselor. EAP counselor, Lori Ortberg, assessed Mr. Stanphill and determined that he suffered from adjustment disorder with depressed mood due to marital stressors occasioned by the suspected infidelity of his wife, Susan Stanphill. Ms. Ortberg referred Mr. Stanphill to a local counselor, Norm Dasenbrook. An appointment was made with Mr. Dasenbrook. Approximately six days later, Mr. Stanphill committed suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning.
