I feel at home in his office, his staff makes me feel like family. Truly a great attorney.
When I brought my case to Albert John Salvi, he handled it professionally and efficiently. I would recommend him to anyone close to me who needed to be represented in medical malpractice and personal injury. His firm Salvi and Maher truly made my life easier, as well as the life of my family. Thank you Mr. Salvi.

Very relieved now and ecstatic about the result
I hired Mr. Salvi before leaving for my first year in college and I was not in a good place. I broke my left leg in a car accident that summer. Now I am in my junior year and my case just settled. Mr. Salvi has helped me these past 2+ years and I am absolutely ecstatic with the result. My parents told me to go with Salvi and Maher and I did research about what my sort of injuries can get in a case and I am over the moon with the result of my case. Thank you Mr. Salvi!

Salvi and Maher
I want to review not only Al but also his firm Salvi and Maher. They are a good sized firm and I had the chance to meet a few people from their office, and they are all very professional. A few times I found myself in conversation with one of their lawyers over the philosophy of law, and I learned a lot about the process. They quite frankly do a brilliant job.

Smart lawyer and good guy
I’ve known of Al, and I’ve heard from a friend that he’s a smart guy and solid lawyer. More recently, I consulted his firm Salvi and Maher and they were professional, definitely helped me out. I did not, as it turns out, have to hire his firm.

Called there office Salvi Maher and they answered immediately, helping me through my case. I went to another lawyer before Salvi and they referred me here, it has been a very good experience. They answer all of my questions and do not leave me in the dark, I am confident in the direction of my case. Grazie mille Al, ti ringrazio!

Mr. Salvi helped me through the whole case
I hired a family friend as my attorney before meeting Mr. Salvi, but he was very helpful with giving me advice and telling me what I should expect.

Patient. Professional. Polite.
Salvi & Maher fought diligently for my son who was a pedestrian hit by a car in Wisconsin. The firm reached a substancial settlement--a settlement, I am confident, that is especially fair given his injuries, which will handicap him for life. Would highly recommend Salvi & Maher to anyone in both Wisconsin and Illinois, where the lawyers at this firm are licensed.

A very respectful and traditional lawyer. Salvi and Maher is second to no one.
My experience with law suits was poor until I chose Salvi and Maher. My brother was in a car accident about 5 years ago, and the lawyers my family went to were very unprofessional and inefficient. A year and a half ago, my wife was injured; so we chose to go to Salvi and Maher. We could not have made a better choice. Do not waste your time with any other lawyer

A lawyer you can count on
This firm knows what they're doing. My case was referred to them and from the moment they began to handle it, it was as if wind had brought life to the sails, so to speak. I had a great experience with this firm and I would recommend it to my friends and family. Thank you very much, Salvi and Maher!

One of the best lawyers I've heard of and spoke to
When I started talking to Al Salvi I knew that his firm was the place to go. I went to Al earlier this year and once I found out about this web site I just had to write about him. I went to his office in Waukegan, and when I walked in, his staff treated me very well. When I presented my case to his partner Michael, I felt very good about my bright future. Hopefully all those who need a lawyer can get the opportunity to go to his firm, I know I made the right choice in choosing him.

Why I went to Salvi and Maher
The process of finding proper representation for my case was hard on my family and me, but Albert John Salvi made the process all worth it when he signed up my case. My experience with his firm flowed from the moment it was signed up to the moment it was settled. Thank you so much Salvi and Maher!

Fabulous Firm
When I witnessed the hard work put into his (Al) job, I knew that Salvi and Maher was the place to go. At no point did I doubt Al Salvi and his co-workers, I knew that all the love they put into their work would pay off (it did). All the hospitality they gave me made the whole rough patch seem much smoother and I would recommend Al to everybody if I could.

Most excellent lawyers ever
Al Salvi and his well taught lawyers made my case seem like a walk in the park, Al tried his hardest to make me as comfortable as possible. I couldn't of felt more at home then in the presents of Al Salvi and his co-workers, I think Salvi and Maher is the place to go.

Could not have made a better choice than Salvi and Maher
I was the only believer in my case after being denied by several law firms. When I presented my case to a lawyer at Salvi & Maher, it was thoroughly looked at, and then it was accepted by the firm. The verdict was incredibly larger than I had expected, and I look back on the experience as though it was a blessing that I came across this firm.

Excellent service, great staff, fantastic verdict
Choosing a lawyer was a very strenuous and meticulous period of my life, but after selecting Salvi & Maher, I knew that I had made the right decision. Al and his staff made sure that I was taken care of. I felt like I was constantly on the top of their priority list, and I will recommend them to everybody I know who needs legal services.

Don't waste your time with any other firm, go to Salvi & Maher
A few weeks after I moved to chicago, I got into a car accident that rendered me paralyzed from my waist down. After researching firms in the Chicagoland area, I came across Salvi & Maher, and I hired them. I was (and still am) treated like a king the minute I stroll into their office. My case is handled very professionally and diligently. I know that I made the right choice in my hard times.

Best lawyer in Lake County!
This guy knows his stuff. He obtained a large settlement in a personal injury suit for me and now for my brother-in-law. Well respected. Nice.
