Fantastic Outcome, Fantastic Attorney with Fantastic Employees
Jason & his staff quickly navigated through a difficult case with Professionalism, Knowledge & Courtesy. He really took the time for me to explain what happened, reviewed all the hospital records & we settled the case very successfully! He was always on point, very realistic & explained everything step by step. I would Always recommend Jason Marks if you want an Honest, Hardworking Attorney that works for YOU.

BEST WORK COMP ATTY EVER!!!!!
I had a work comp case that involved a fall so bad at work it required 4 surgeries to put me back together again. I started with another attorney who shall remain nameless and would NEVER recommend my original attorney. I finally had enough of his crap when MY attorney had me crying on the phone talking down to me like I was an idiot and finally hung up on him. I’m sitting there thinking there’s something seriously messed up that MY attorney was treating me like crap and gave me no info whatsoever so I decided minimally for my sanity I needed to find someone else (he was actually referred to me). Trying to find another attorney to take over my case took a lot of work. Most of them were raving how great he was and I was lucky to have him (I’m thinking “are we talking about the same guy”), they were hesitant to “take his client from him” - don’t know why since he really hadn’t don’t crap, but it mostly boiled down to that the new attorney would have to give the original attorney a portion of the 20% which I can’t imagine being much because he didn’t do much. Then I found Jason Marks and I would yell from the rooftops to go to him. He was the first and only guy to agree in saying 1st attorney useless, but the biggest thing he did for me that I knew nothing about was exactly how they figure out settlement amounts. You really need to be more accountant than attorney. No one ever explained it to me which I was so grateful for because I would ask original atty and he pretty much ignored my question. Jason is a no nonsense hard ass worker and will fight for what he believes is a fair and reasonable amount. I told my friend who gave me name of crappy 1st atty because she was using him too for a work comp claim and I kept nagging her to at least talk to Jason and then decide. Needless to say, she spoke to Jason, hired him to take over and fired her original attorney. She said it was best decision and was happy she switched. I can’t express enough how awesome Jason is - do not hesitate to hire him to represent you!

Best Attorney
Mr. Jason Marks is best Attorney in my opinion, I worked for Cook County Hospital, and I was Union Secretory, I represented hundreds of Employees and deals with so many attorneys. I had my personal case with Mr. Jason Marks. He did best presentation and help me lot. He has very good knowdge in .workers compensation. I did not see such an attorney who walk an extra mile for his client. Advise every single problem.

Personal and assertive
Jason and Jacqueline were always on top of their game and answered my questions when they came up. This is a stressful process and they always appeared to show empathy and were assertive when needed. I feel they were helpful and knowledgeable. Thank you all for your hard work.

Hire the best! I’m 100% Satisfied Please read my story
I am so happy that I hired Jason Marks & am completely 100% satisfied with my experience with him, & his entire staff. Mr. Marks is extremely knowledgeable about Workers Comp cases, & he & his staff are very professional, courteous & caring. Originally I had hired another firm in Chicago that although they are one of the largest firms in Chicago, & I had hired the owner, & he said he would take great care of my case, I was immediately passed off to an attorney with no experience. I was informed the reason is because all their junior attorneys work is overseen by the senior lawyers in the firm. Well, that is not what I signed up for & it ended up being a complete disaster & my case was totally lost in the shuffle! This meant my case had dragged out for 18 months with nothing being accomplished! Not so with Jason Marks. He personally, from day one until your case settles, ensures your case is handled with the utmost care. With my case he quickly got the ball rolling & made things happen. I only wish I had hired him first! I am now elated to say my case just settled for more than I expected & I’m so grateful to Mr. Marks & his entire staff! Please do not look any further in your search for a the best law firm! Call Marks Injury Law, you will be glad you did! I know I am. Thank you. Martha K.

Gracias
Definitely, having hired the signature mark associates was the best thing that happened to me after my accident and that an insurer did not want to respond to my lessons and damages for not paying anything. Marks and associates obtained for me, in a very human and professional way, the average attention that I needed for the insurer to cover all the expenses until my therapies were finished and also a much better monetary compensation than I could imagine.

Awesome attorney
This guy rocks. He worked hard to get me a fair settlement. He was patient during the negotiating and not quick to settle. I would definitely recommend Jason Marks.

Extremely Effective and Efficient
I have hired Jason Marks on several occasions now for worker's comp cases against UPS. In each case, Jason was highly professional, courteous, efficient and settled the cases swiftly. Jason always advised me of possible outcomes of different courses of action if they were to be taken. In all cases Jason was correct with the eventual outcome. All letters mailed to my home were clearly marked where I needed to sign and included a return envelope prepaid. I can always be assured to get the best possible settlement with Jason Marks in my corner.

Compassionate, personalized representation!
Marks & Associates helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life! After a severe car accident, I hired Jason Marks to represent me. Mr. Marks came to my home and consulted with me. I found him to be compassionate and very thorough with his questions and representation of my interests. He was very communicative and settled the case very quickly. THANKS SO MUCH to Jason Marks and all the staff at Marks & Associates!

Great team!!
Jason has been my attorney on two work comp cases. Jason and his paralegal, Jacqueline, always answered my questions promptly and kept me inform of where my case stood, which means a lot when dealing with WC Insurance companies that like to keep you in the dark! I was completely satisfied with the outcome of both cases. I would highly recommend the team at Marks & Associates!!

Responsive, practical attorney
I hired Jason Marks to work on my behalf for my workman's compensation claim after my first attorney failed to respond to my inquiries over and over again. My first questions to Mr. Marks was, "how long is a reasonable time frame for a response from you?". He said, "24 hours". He adhered to that time frame for the entire time it took to finish my claim. Both he and his assistant were very helpful. Mr. Marks was receptive to answering questions and looking at my case from different angles. He proceeded aggressively when he felt it was necessary. Doing so moved my case to the highest settlement amount possible and to a reasonable conclusion. The whole process of being involved in workman's comp. is tedious and unfair. With Mr. Marks on my side, I knew things would turn out to be ok. I definitely recommend him!

I would refer him to anyone!!
I was referred to Jason by a co-worker. Right from the start we were on first name basis, as if we we had known each other a long time. He was very easy to talk to and always answered all my questions! I would hire him again (if need be) and I would refer him to anyone!

Dependable Law Firm
I hired Mr. Marks in 2010 for an injury on the job that basically changed my entire quality of life. Mr. Marks is a well qualified attorney with extensive knowledge in workcomp t. He and his paralegal (Jackie) make an awesome team. They were on top of any issue when it came to benefit payments whenever the company decided to get amnesia as to how and when I shoud be paid. Mr. Marks in My opinion negotiated the best possible outcome settlement agreement for me, given my options and condition it worked in my favor. I would definitely recommend this attorney to fight for you in the time of need.
