About me

I am a Chicago area attorney concentrating in insurance claim representation of homeowners whose homes have suffered from fire. I have experience litigating in state and federal court and have handled appeals all the way to the certiorari stage at the United State Supreme Court.

Call my office, Law office of Steven Pollack, if you have received a reservation of rights letter, a demand for examination under oath, or the insurance company is investigating the cause and origin of your fire for arson. I can also help prepare your claim from preparing the sworn statement in proof of loss to litigating a denied claim.
