About Me

Mitch is responsible for many of the day-to-day business functions of his firm’s paperless offices, where he has practiced since 1979. His organizational and communication skills – as well as his initiative and credibility – help Mitch excel during negotiations.  He is passionate about representing the injured worker's, and many members of organized labor.


Mitch leads the Workers' Compensation team and was recently named one of the Top 10 Workers' Compensation Lawyers in Illinois in a survey of his peers conducted by Leading Lawyers.


Mitch was born in Chicago and graduated from New Trier High School. He currently resides with his family in Evanston. Among the activities he enjoys in his spare time are golf and fishing.
