Pignatelli & Associates was proudly founded jointly by Louis F. Pignatelli and his late father, Louis J. Pignatelli, who was a well-respected, long-term mayor of the city of Rock Falls, credited with bringing in the highways and businesses to the city. The city center that houses the police, fire, and courts, is named “The Louis J. Pignatelli Municipal Complex”.

Like his late and beloved father, Attorney Pignatelli is a highly-respected attorney, having settled multi-million-dollar cases as an aggressive litigator who is yet highly compassionate for all of his clients, from those wrongly injured, either on the job or in an accident, to those involved in life-altering events needing counsel.

Attorney Pignatelli continues the philanthropic work of his father within the community, and additionally serves on the Board of Directors of Community State Bank, an organization also founded by his father.
