Jeremy Karlin, Galesburg attorney and alderman, announced that he is joining the law firm of Barash & Everett.
He’s leaving the firm he co-founded in 2008, Alcorn Karlin, to join his “former mentor” Barry Barash. According to a Karlin news release, the law firm is the largest one between Peoria and the Quad Cities and employs eight attorneys in offices in Kewanee, Galva and Galesburg — where Karlin will be based.
Karlin is a 20 year veteran of practicing law in West Central Illinois, serving as an assistant Knox County state’s attorney for 1995-97.
He is also serving his 2nd term as Galesburg’s 7th ward alderman and in March lost a bid to be the Democratic nominee for Knox County State’s Attorney by 52 votes.
Karlin has practiced law in the areas of federal and state criminal law, family/divorce law, civil litigation and mediation.
