About Me



If you have been injured due to someone’s negligence, please call us for a free consultation.


 


We pride ourselves on being available to answer your questions and concerns.  We listen to you, we thoroughly explain your rights and legal options, and we utilize our knowledge, experience and skill to obtain the best results for you.


 


Some insurance companies attempt to discourage accident victims from hiring an attorney.  They try to obtain sworn statements while an accident victim is without counsel or they try to tempt accident victims with small and quick settlement offers.  These tactics are designed to prevent accident victims from receiving the full and fair compensation to which they are entitled.  However, our involvement has consistently created significant value for our clients.  Please make certain that your rights are protected and maximized by seeking our advice as soon as possible.


 


We will negotiate a full and fair compensation for your injuries.  In the event that your matter is not settled before litigation, we will file suit, litigate and go to trial on your behalf.


 


We are dedicated personal injury lawyers, who understand the difficulties that arise when one has become a victim of an accident.


 


When you choose us to handle your case, you can rest assured that your case will receive the personal attention it deserves.


 


You will not pay attorney’s fees unless we recover on your behalf.


 


We are committed to devoting the necessary time and preparation that your case requires, in order to obtain the best recovery possible for you.  We never settle a case without your approval. 


 


We have a successful track record for negotiating settlements and winning substantial lawsuits for accident victims.


 


We are conveniently located in downtown Chicago, just blocks from the courthouse.  Free parking is available and public transportation is a short distance away.

  • Ehsan Eftekhari

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Mr. Aberman is an impressive attorney. He has taken some very difficult cases to trial and has successfully won. Mr. Aberman has a great personality as well. He is pleasant to talk and has a vast knowledge of the judges, lawyers, and the cases he works on. He works hard to get the best results for his clients and is not afraid of going to trial. In fact, one of the first questions I ask him every time I see him is whether or not he has had a recent trial. You can't talk to many lawyers that way since many lawyers avoid going to trial on behalf of their clients for one reason or another. Not so in Mr. Aberman's case. He is a fighter. He is also very ethical in his ways.
