About me

Thomas W. Hargrove is a highly qualified counselor for clients facing all types of legal issues, from insurance coverage disputes to employment and business law. Tom has broad experience as a litigator in the state, federal and administrative courts and as a mediator in arbitration and other alternative dispute resolution forums. He is licensed to practice in both Illinois and Indiana, and has been admitted to practice before the Northern District of Illinois and the Northern District of Indiana. He is married and has three children.


As a senior partner at Pluymert, MacDonald, Hargrove & Lee, Ltd., Tom works as a counselor and advocate to develop solutions that fit his clients’ overall situation and plans for the future. With his years of experience with a wide variety of legal and business issues, the Hoffman Estates lawyer has been heavily involved with providing advice and counsel to professionals and businesses in a wide variety of industries. Tom realizes that the solutions to many problems require the involvement of others who provide counsel to his clients, and may often work with a client’s accountants and financial consultants. He provides counsel to his clients on risk transfer, the need for and analysis of proper insurance coverage before the loss, and assistance with adjustments after a loss occurs.


Tom also has more than 25 years of experience in helping business enterprises with disaster recovery, including the minimization of loss, rescue and recreation of damaged business records, and the return to normal business operations. Tom’s employment law practice focuses on preventative measures and regulatory compliance with government agencies at both the state and federal level in such areas as Equal Employment, Wage and Overtime Issues, Family and Medical Leave Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. He is a veteran when it comes to termination issues, employee handbooks, employment agreements, and restrictive covenants related to employment and contractual relationships.
