About Craig

Learn Craig’s areas of practice.

Whether my clients require someone to represent them in matters of medical malpractice, personal injury, or criminal defense, I believe in providing each person with the highest quality of legal representation.

For over 20 years, I’m honored to have built my reputation and, then, developed my practice based on the referral of other lawyers and clients. I’ve focused my career on listening to the needs and wants of my clients. I’ve been described as friendly, personable and direct and I do my utmost to provide clear and objective counsel. I have received many honors and awards throughout my career, most notably the Martindale-Hubbell’s “AV® Preeminent™” rating, which is the highest peer review rating in professional ethics and legal ability.

I have handled constitutional and appellate litigation in the Supreme Court of the United States, the Supreme Court of Illinois, and other courts throughout the country.

My skill as a Trial Lawyer have led me to a number of positions teaching both law students and attorneys. In addition to my active personal injury practice, I am an adjunct professor at Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law, teaching trial advocacy. I previously taught legal writing skills at the John Marshall Law School. I have, also, served as an instructor with the National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA) and its deposition program. In November 2006, I was invited to and participated in NITA’s Pacific Teacher Training class on teaching advocacy skills in San Francisco, California. I was an instructor with the CBA College of Trial Advocacy and an instructor for the Federal Trial Bar Training Course on the art of expert examination at trial.

I represent cases of all sizes. If you’ve been injured by a medical professional, or have been involved in excessive force, police brutality, or have had your civil rights violated, I will fight hard to seek damages for harm or losses - so you can focus on healing.

Wrongful Death Lawsuit
I cannot say enough how incredibly grateful I am for Craig Sandberg. He fought diligently for 3 years seeking justice for my son's death. Outside of being professional, knowledgeable, courteous, detail-oriented, and focused on the job at hand, he also personally showed great kindness and compassion, and took gentle care when discussing the delicate matters involved in my son's death. I am so thankful for him, and would absolutely recommend him to anyone seeking justice for the loss of a loved one.

1000% a great Attorney.
I don't think I could say enough about how Mr. Sandberg eased the tension of going through a personal injury case. He remained professional at all times while I probably drove him nuts lol. He is very knowledgeable and direct. He seemed to always be aware of when I couldn't understand and took time to put situation in layman's terms. I think he is down to earth good human. I would most definitely recommend him to anyone who is in a situation that requires professionalism, commitment, and compassion.

Top notch, very professional & extremely helpful
Retained Craig to represent me in a car accident injury case. He took control of the entire situation for me from the very beginning in all the dealings with my medical bills & the insurance companies, all while keeping me apprised every step of the way. I would highly recommend him & he undoubtably would be my first call if I ever need a lawyer again!

Craig is a wonderful person
My experience with Craig was great as he answered all my questions informatively and extremely easy going. My settlement was so fast that it's taken awhile for me to absorb the actual fact that finally I can feel somewhat "normal" as it's been so long! God Bless you and your family, thank you my friend.

Amazing lawyer and Human being
We have been working with Mr. Sandberg for around a year now and prior to his joining our fight, we had been through several other attorneys and felt like it was a losing battle. Mr. Sandberg was the first person we had spoken to who truly put in the time and had many long conversations to really hear all of the important information involved in this case. Beyond being a lawyer, he is a humanitarian who undoubtedly and very clearly cares. He is a fighter and has an incredibly intelligent man. He made an impossible win, a win. Thank you Craig Sandberg!!! The world needs more of you

Personal injury
Craig was professional, passionate, courteous, and very patient with myself, but more important, my sick, elderly aunt. If he wasn’t 100% sure of an answer, he would get back to me within hours.

Personal Case
Mr Sandberg worked on a personal case for me and took care of everything very professionally. He kept me informed of what was going on through the whole case.

Very attentive
Craig was attentive and kept me abreast of everything going on. I was amazed how fast he was able to resolve our case and we are very satisfied with the end result. Settling out of court save us time, money and the anguish of reliving our heart ache.

His entire firm is professional and very knowledgeable. Answered every question I had regarding my case. I had no worries about my personal injury case knowing he was on the job. From depositions to court appearances. Thank you for all of your hard work.

Tenacious, thorough, and professional
Craig worked on a difficult out-of-state collections matter for me. This was particularly difficult since the company was very difficult to reach and pin down on anything. Craig did a phenomenal job of getting to what I think was the best possible settlement and saw it through until the money was in my bank account.

Excellent Attorney
I contracted Craig for a difficult case for which I was informed there was no legal recourse. His professionalism and knowledge of law left me in awe as he laid out an intrinsic case plan and won my cases. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone.

Not only is Craig tops in his profession, he takes the time to know his clients. He has excellent communication skills and is a diligent attorney. His 5 star ratings speak for him. If I were to ever need legal assistance again, I would not hesitate to reach out to Craig.

Justice for my Mom
My mother is elderly. She's been in nursing homes where there's been neglect which is abuse. Mr. Sandberg represented my mother and was able to get settlements for her. He was able to prove to the courts that she had been wronged and mistreated.

Review of Craig Sandberg's handling of my case
Craig was recommended to me by a family member. He took on my case and walked me through the process of how things would play out. Craig kept me informed as things progressed and made himself available for any questions or concerns that I had. The process did take time, but Craig assured me that these cases do take time, and not to be overly concerned that things may not progress as quickly as I may have thought they would. Eventually I won my case. Craig did his best to get me the monetary amount that he and I felt was fair. My overall experience with Craig, the process, and amount awarded to me was very positive.

Craig and his team took my case and were very professional in every aspect of my suit. I was kept informed every step of the way. When my case was finally settled I truly believe that Craig and his team left no stone unturned and articulated my side to the court and won my suit. I am very pleased with my service and would recommend their firm to anyone.

Best lawyer in Chicago
Craig, fought for me, a very difficult case of Medical Malpractice, against a Plastic Surgeon who destroyed me. No one wanted to take my case, but he did, he fought for me and he won, we won!

He did the impossible
A few years ago, we paid a contractor to do some work in our home. Among other faults, the contractor did not show up as promised in the contract and the work was not being done. My wife and I were very upset and decided to go with another contractor. We were told by a number of attorneys that we probably wouln't get our down payment back. We contacted Mr. Sandberg who said that he would see what he could do. To our delight he managed to not only get back our full deposit but also attorney fees. We found Mr. Sandberg to be very easy to work with. We appreciated that he kept us up to date on all the filings. We would definately recommend Craig Sandberg as an excellent attorney.
