Personal Attention, Record-Setting Results
Four Decades of Experience
Our Chicago-based legal team has been aggressively advocating for injury victims and survivors throughout the country for nearly four decades. We consistently take on the biggest companies in America, and we win.
If you hire us, you will get a team of lawyers and staff who are passionate about your case. How will you know we are passionate about your case? Because we are selective about the cases we handle, and for good reason. We want our clients to know that if we have taken on their case, it will get our full attention, from start to finish.
Qualifications That Matter
Individually strong makes us collectively powerful. We are the only personal injury and wrongful death law firm in Illinois where every single partner has been board-certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA). Individually, every single on one of our lawyers has also been recognized by SuperLawyers® and Best Lawyers in America®. Collectively, our firm has been recognized in US News & World Report’s list of best law firms in the country.
Leaders In Our Field
Based on our experience, our law firm and its lawyers are consistently involved in leading the prosecution of complex cases. From aviation disasters to oil refinery explosions to mass shootings, our firm has been repeatedly called upon to lead from the front.
It is due to this deep experience that we are often asked to handle catastrophic or high profile matters such as aviation disasters, explosions, traumatic brain injuries, product liability, trucking accidents, medical malpractice, and workplace accidents.
We use our leadership experience to give back. Our lawyers share their developed knowledge with our legal community, serving in leadership positions in the American Association for Justice (AAJ), the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association (ITLA), and the National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA), and writing the authoritative texts for the Illinois Institute of Continuing Legal Education (IICLE).
Free Consultations and No Legal Fees Unless You Win
We offer free initial consultations so you can discuss your case. This allows you to learn how we can help you and allows our lawyers to determine whether your case is a match for our expertise. When we accept cases, they are taken on a contingency fee. This means that you will never be asked to pay anything up front and you will never owe any legal fees unless we win for you.
Using The Best Legal Strategies
While we are battle-proven trial lawyers first and foremost, we are also skilled negotiators. We counsel our clients on whatever approach may be best for their case. Our approach to trial preparation drives outstanding recoveries, whether at the negotiating table or in the courtroom. To get our cases ready for trial, we work alongside some of the most accomplished leaders in medicine and science to make sure that judges and juries understand cutting edge science and medicine. The result of this strategy is that our firm has developed a remarkable record of accomplishments, obtaining significant recoveries over and over again for our clients.
Deploying Technology to Enhance Results
We effectively deploy technology to work up our cases and maximize our case recoveries. When our opponents try to bury the truth, we deploy specialized technology to find the smoking gun evidence. When the key to a case is nuanced in data, we use specialists to bring that data to life in a visually engaging way.
We know that if we are going to maximize your recovery, we have to be effective story tellers. To do so, we work with graphic designers to develop custom-made and creative courtroom presentations using videos, animated graphics, and medical illustrations to make sure juries understand your story.
Accepting Peer-to-Peer Referrals
With a national presence, many of our clients are referred to us by other lawyers and former clients who have seen our work first hand. Oftentimes, we are referred cases from lawyers who were once our opponents and now have a family member or friend who needs our help.
