    41 years

  4. Workers compensation
    Thousands of people are hurt every day on the job, and while many workplace accidents result in only minor injuries, some are much more serious. If you have suffered a serious accident you need to contact a Disparti Workers’ Compensation Lawyer.

Chicago personal injury, disability, workers’ compensation and employment lawyers. Disparti Law Group has recovered over 1 Billion dollars for our clients and named one of the most influential law firms by Trial Lawyer Magazine. Our top-rated lawyers have represented those injured in car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip & fall, work injury and social security disability.

No fee unless we win. 

“I have always been interested in helping people,” he says. “I can’t think of anything else I’d rather be doing.”


Disparti Law group has grown over the last ten years mainly due to Mr. Disparti’s core belief in customer service. “There are thousands of lawyers out there, I believe that our success is rooted not only in the great outcomes we achieve for our clients, but also how we treat them every step along way”.


“I have compassion for people, and I take pride in what I do,” he says. “Current economic conditions are causing more and more people to apply for disability, and government uses more screening processes to discourage fraud. With government budgets in crisis, te process is slowing down, and clients often become frustrated.”


“We are seeing the same thing now with the insurance companies, forcing us to pursue litigation for our clients which often only delays the help our clients need.”

Larry realizes he holds his clients’ lives and their livelihoods in his hands, and that adds meaning to his work.


“We are dealing with a government that is not customer-service-oriented, and patience comes down to compassion for our clients,” Disparti says. “I put myself in their shoes and ask myself, ‘What would I do?’”


Larry’s skills, compassion, and desire to help others spill over into his community service initiatives. He is a leader in groups supporting the fight against cancer, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, catastrophic injuries, and other causes.


Disparti is licensed to practice law in Illinois, Florida and the District of Columbia. He can also handle social security disability cases in all 50 states. He is a member of the National organization of Social Security Disability Claimants’ Representatives, Illinois Trial Lawyers association, Chicago Bar Association, Florida Justice Association and member of the Plaintiff interstate trucking lawyers association.

Excellent Law Firm that Works for YOU
Disparti Law represented me not only once but twice when I was in a motor vehicle accident. The handling of my first case brought me back to them for representation the second time. In both cases, the firm is professional, expedient in communication, and makes you feel seen/valued not just as a number or dollar. They are judicious and work with you for the best outcome.

I hired this law group to get my SSI. I had tried several times filing. Finally decided to hire a law group. Once they had all the information they filed on my behalf. I received my money within a week or two. Don't waste your time tryi g to file on your own. Only 1 out of 4 may get it. It could take years. Just hire a good Attorney.

Superior Customer Service
I would use Disparti Law Group again. They handled my case with professionalism and compassion. All of my phone calls and emails were handled quickly and all my questions were always answered. I am a very satisfied customer/client!!!!!

Very Thankful for Mr. Disparti!
I applied for Social Security disability on my own and was denied twice. There were so many forms to fill out and I didn't know what I was doing, so I called a few lawyers for help. After waiting a few days to get a call back, all the lawyers I spoke with told me to “just fill out the forms and send them in.” Then to call them when a hearing is scheduled. A friend of mine recommended that I contact the Disparti Law Group because he was very impressed with how they handled his Social Security disability case. I contacted the Disparti Law Group to see if they could help me. I was immediately impressed. When I first called, I spoke with a live person. I told the girl that I spoke with that I had been denied twice and that I need help. She was very compassionate and sincere. I told her that I don’t have a hearing scheduled, but I cannot fill out the forms on my own. She told me that didn't matter because the Disparti Law Group will help me with my case from the beginning to the end. After giving her some initial information, I had an appointment within a week. I am so thankful that my friend recommended that I contact the Disparti Law Group. If it had not been for them, I would still be struggling to get Social Security disability. Mr. Disparti and his staff are very courteous and helpful. Whenever I called, someone was always able to help me. I would recommend the Disparti Law Group to anyone that needs help getting their Social Security disability benefits.

Highest Recommendation
I hired Disparti Law Group (DLG) years ago and was highly satisfied with the outcome. I've since referred many of my friends over the past 15 years. DLG provided me with compassionate advice and their staff took the time to keep me informed throughout my claim process. The attorneys, case managers and admin staff were pleasant to deal with and I felt good about having them working on my case. They were very professional and up to date on current laws. I'm happy to say I've recently heard from some of the friends I have referred to DLG and they are receiving the same type of personalized and excellent service.

Tremendous help with an auto accident And my Social Security Disability claim
I had started a Disability claim with the Disparti Law Group, then unfortunately was in an auto accident when someone ran a stop sign. After back surgery, the Disparti Group helped me to receive the most payout for my injuries that the insurance company and the law allowed. I was denied Disability initially, we appealed and finally I was granted full Social Security Disability. I am extremely grateful as I cannot work any more and they never gave up, I really don't think that I could've done it without them!

The staff was great, always kept me informed and really helpd me through this difficult process and time in my life. Thank you to Mr. Disparti and your fine team, I will tell anyone who needs your help to give you a call!

Great job!
I knew going into my disability case it would be long and stressful, but this firm did a great job. They kept me updated, I rarely had to call them as I was told they have automatic follow ups in their computers to keep me up to date. When I did have to call them I was usually contacted back same day or next. I even had a debt collector threatening me and they got the debt wiped out due to a violation! I didn't know that could happen! Would recommend to anyone!

I guess I should be happy with a smallish settlement
I can't believe a personal injury lawfirm would not instruct me to open my social security disability file right after surgery, but they did not get around to it until 4 months went by costing me 4 months of benefits. Then they miscommunicated loophole after loophole to reduce my portion of the payout.

No response
No one replies to emails and no call back to voicemail. I don’t know what is going on about my case. Nina Hughes and Sarah Scatterday don’t answer phone calls. No call back to voicemail. And no reply to emails.

Firm Needs Expertise and Training
A colleague of mine referred me to this firm. Hello, I was working with Adam Shapiro and his parellegal Iris fir my auto insurance claim case. The purpose for this review is to help educate and improve the processes of your firm’s employees processes and practices. When I or clients come to an firm such as yours, we are relying on your expertise and resilience to making sure the auto insurance companies are not doing bad faith practices etc. My wife and I have spent 45 days with this firm to assist us in our auto insurance claim. My wife and I found ourselves making all my calls to this firm to find out the status of our auto claims case and when I talk to them they say let me call the insurance company to find out what’s going. This is the first RED FLAG of concern I have. I asked Adam by email if they made any correspondences and he says No. The Insurance denial letter he received the other day, Adam didn’t challenge them especially when they had the incorrect accident date on it. Another RED FLAG. Adam dropped us instantly.

Terrible firm. Production line approach
Terrible law firm, completely uninformative was not prepped on anything and Social Security people calling me no idea what to say or what to do could not get through to this law firm on the phone. They never answer their phone and rarely call you back if you leave a message.. I had letters from my doctors to show that I was disabled they were never turned into Social Security so they denied my claim immediately. This is a horrible law firm I would never recommend it to anyone! stay away if you want any chance of a successful Social Security disability claim.
