I am a civil trial lawyer with 30 years of experience in Illinois state and federal courts. I concentrate my practice in handling serious personal injury cases, including medical malpractice, aviation crashes, train crashes and truck/car crashes. In four cases alone, I - along with partner Bob Baizer - obtained $78.8 million for our clients. Those cases involved:
In December 2014, I obtained a $4.8 million jury verdict in Chicago for a woman who nearly died from a post-surgery infection. In September 2015, I obtained another seven-figure jury verdict in Waukegan for the death of a 73-year-old man at a Lake County area hospital. In both cases, the defense made no offers prior to trial.
I have regularly been named an Illinois “Super Lawyer” for personal injury litigation. I also hold an AV peer-review rating by Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating an attorney can receive for general ethical standards and legal ability.
We have not found any instances of professional misconduct for this lawyer.
