Law Group opens offices in Effingham

LeFevre Oldfield Myers Apke & Payne Law Group Ltd. of Vandalia opened a second office on Sept. 1.
The firm’s new location is at 215 N. Fourth St. in Effingham. The telephone number is 217-347-3034 and the fax number is 618-283-3037.  
Founded in 1975, the firm has been located at 303 S. Seventh St. in Vandalia, across from the Fayette County Courthouse. The local telephone number is 283-3034.
The group’s practice ranges from divorce cases to representing clients in tax matters before the United States Tax Court. Attorneys from the practice appear in local courts, the Illinois Appellate Court, the Illinois Supreme Court, federal courts, bankruptcy courts and the U.S. Supreme Court.
The concept of the Law Group Ltd. is that “each attorney limits their practice to specific areas of the law so that they will be better able to practice in those areas, rather than attempting to be an expert in all areas of the law,” according to a news release about the new office. “The attorneys and staff of the Law Group Ltd. will provide their clients in the Effingham office the same service and value which the Law Group Ltd. has provided its clients since its formation in 1975.”
The firm consists of six attorneys: Larry LeFevre, David Oldfield, James Myers, Pamela Apke, Troy Payne and Deborah Reimers (who recently joined the firm as an associate attorney).
