Firm History

Harrington and Tock traces its history back to 1922 when Earl Harrington graduated from law school at the University of Illinois. Earl began to practice law with Lou Busch, who was the Champaign County state’s attorney at the time. Together they founded Busch and Harrington and the firm continued under that name for many years.
