About me


Since 1999, I have been going to court for my clients and winning compensation for those seriously injured or killed as a result of someone else’s negligence.  I represent the families of those lost in terrible automobile and truck accidents, those who have suffered profound injuries as a result of medical negligence, and those who have been abused and neglected in nursing homes.    When necessary, I have tried cases to favorable verdicts for my clients and I have achieved strong settlements, some exceeding $1 Million, in favor of my clients and their families.


 I understand that my clients often face life-altering challenges as a result of their injuries and that long drawn out litigation only adds to their suffering.  I pride myself on the ability to explain the legal process to my clients so they understand what is going on and what to expect at each stage of the case.  I work aggressively in the state and federal court systems or through the settlement process to recover from the wrongdoers and their insurance companies.  But recovering fair compensation is only part of the battle. Once a settlement or judgment is obtained, I contest and negotiate reimbursement claims from health insurers, medical providers, employers, and others who are trying to claim part of my client’s settlement – all to ensure that my client receives the maximum payment possible.


 I welcome referrals and co-counsel arrangements with other attorneys who are looking for an experienced attorney to handle their client’s negligence or injury cases.   There is no charge for any initial consultation.


 I am admitted to the Bar of the State of Illinois, a member of the Trial Bar for the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, and I am also admitted to practice before the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.  I am an active member of the DuPage County Bar Association, presently serving as its Associate General Counsel.  Previously I served as the chairman of the Civil Law and Practice Committee and the Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee.  I am also on the Board of Directors for the Robert E. Jones American Inns of Court.  I also present to attorneys and paralegals on issues that include wrongful death, personal injury, and nursing home abuse.
