About me

With more than 22 years of experience as a litigator, I have recovered millions for my clients throughtout Illinois and the Chicago area. 


If you have suffered an injury or loss, you need aggressive, fair representation from a lawyer who understands the difficulties you and your family are experiencing.   You need someone with a proven record, who can get results for you.  The insurance company may spend enormous amounts of resources to defeat or minimize your claim.  We will stand up to them and fight for you.


Remember, you should not speak to an insurance company investigator before you speak to a lawyer.  You may need to take steps to preserve evidence or obtain witness statements.  You may also need to place parties on notice of your claim, retain a consultant to investigate a loss scene or seek advice about obtaining appropriate medical treatment.  We are here for you, and we will carefully prepare your case and be ready for trial when necessary.


When it's important to you or your family, don't take chances.  We can help allocate the responsibiulity for the harm onto the responsible party - and their insurance company.  Give me a call and receive a free, no obligation consultation.  Let's get started today.
