About The Firm

While growing up, attorney Rene Bassett-Butler saw how her father eased the burden of people who came to his office with legal problems — whether through legal advice or the simple act of listening to what they had to say.

Founding attorney Merle Bassett practiced law for 64 years in Madison County where he grew up. Renee Bassett-Butler has been practicing law since 1994, starting out as a teenager in her father's office and then joining him after law school.

Today, Rene and the firm's staff carry on her dad's tradition of quality service at Bassett Law Office, P.C., in Wood River, Illinois. We are a full-service firm offering representation in multiple practice areas. Our firm's mission is fulfilled with energy and enthusiasm for helping people, which continues to bring individuals back to us again and again when they need a lawyer.
