I had one when I worked in Chicago because it was unionized and you really needed someone with extensive knowledge of media contracts to get you the best deal. It was worth the 15%. I also had a media lawyer for the same reason. She got me out of a non-compete.
As for where to find them, ask around and people won't really want to tell you who their agent is but they will at least point you in the right direction of a good agency or group. The reason people are protective of their agents amongst their friends is because that agent could then be possibly getting them a job over you if you're in the same format or skills level.
I recommend these guys out of Phoenix (link provided below this). They have an office in Chicago and I know they have some Milwaukee, Madison and Green Bay clients as well as Rockford. Just being over protective but I won't give you my agents name there.
