So knowledgeable
I could never say enough good things about Joe Kramer. I was in a bad car accident, and hired him as my personal injury lawyer. He’s incredibly dedicated and works extremely hard for his clients. He is so empathetic and very trustworthy which translated to never worrying if he had my best interests at heart. If you’re looking for an personal injury attorney, I promise, he’s your guy.

The best auto accident/personal injury attorne
I was in a rear end car crash and Kramer Injury Law LLC helped me in so many ways. A week after the collision I was having a ton of cognitive difficulties and did not realize I suffered a brain injury. At that point, I was emotionally suffering because no one, not even my doctors, were correctly identifying the problem. This firm helped me navigate these confusing circumstances and I was able to get better pretty quickly. Insurance problems also became complicated but Kramer Injury Law never gave up and helped me recover financially. All I can say is that this firm will genuinely look out for you. It will even provide encouragement and emotional support you need during a difficult period. If you need a brain injury or auto accident attorney in Chicago, hire Kramer Injury Law LLC!

Honest, hardworking attorney
If you have a case that involves complicated legal issues or where the insurance company wants to put up a big fight, you should hire Mr. Kramer to help you. He is thorough, knowledgable and smart and will fight as long and as hard as it takes to win your case.

Outstanding Attorney
Joe earns the highest accolade possible. I had a somewhat complex case that was time consuming and required a lot of legwork on his part. There was never a doubt in my mind that Joe handled everything with the utmost professionalism and deep knowledge of the law. He never cut corners and was available day and night for questions. He saw our case to the end despite multiple postponements. I highly recommend Kramer Injury Law for any personal injury needs generally, and Joe specifically.

Is very well organized and returned every phone call. Did a wonderful job.
Joe was able to help me understand the process or working with the insurance company. I am grateful for his hard work. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing his service. I work at the Illinois Manufacturers Association and think his expertise would be helpful to our 4,000 members. I will speak with him further about possible opportunities at the IMA. We have been in existence for over 120 years and our members are the likes of Cat, Deere, Baxter, Bowing and thousands of mid and small manufacturers.

Experienced, Honest, Professional
Joe did a terrific job representing me - I had a very difficult situation and was being treated unfairly by an insurance company. Joe took his time understanding the situation and what had happened, not only talking with me - but several witnesses and the police as well. He gave me realistic numbers on settlement and the length of time this process would take, as well as staying in communication with me every step of the way. If you're looking for an Honest and Up front attorney - Joe is an excellent option.

"Joe provides the benefit of a big-firm background with the attention to detail you would expect only at a small firm. Joe makes the time to explain the intricacies of the ever-changing personal injury implications. I have worked with Joe on behalf of a wide variety of my clients, and he provides significant value and saved my clients at all levels of the personal injury process. Cannot recommend him highly enough!"
Unknown Attorney | Feb 21
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"I worked for Joe early on in my legal career. To date, I’ve yet to meet an attorney that possesses the attention to detail, empathy, and work ethic that Joe possesses. His ability to relate to his clients is unmatched. It does not matter how big or small the case is, Joe’s advocacy is unwavering. I continue to learn from Joe to this day."

Personal injury Attorney | Apr 13
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"In an industry full of motivated, detail oriented, and hard working individuals, Joe stands out in every category. You will not find another lawyer more educated in legal matters, more professional, or who will work more tirelessly for his clients. If that wasn't enough, Joe is personable, easy to talk to, and has a knack for making complex matters understandable. These are all wonderful client-focused qualities. It makes him an excellent colleague as well. Joe represents the best of what the legal profession has to offer. If I had a personal injury or products liability case, Joe would be my first call. You simply will not do better."
Personal injury Attorney | Dec 14
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Joe is what defines a diligent, compassionate, and competent lawyer. It's unfortunate but it's not always a guarantee that you will get all 3 of those phases out of a lawyer. I would contact Joe for any kind of injury case coming out of IL. Not only does he know what he is talking about, he also genuinely cares about the client and getting the client justice. As the motto I live by in practice, it's not about making a million dollars for Joe; it's about helping a million people. Any client should be honored and happy to have Joe represent you in a personal injury matter."

Defective and dangerous products Attorney | Jun 26
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"For the past few years, I have worked with Joe Kramer on a complex pharmaceutical drug case. We worked together shoulder to shoulder for a month preparing senior counsel for numerous depositions. We also split up and took the deposition of the Vice President of Clinical Trials for one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world. Joe has spent the time to really understand the underlying science in the case, which is a fundamental necessity for finding liability in these types of complex cases. From this personal experience, I can confidently say that Joe is incredibly hardworking, knowledgeable, and committed to the practice of law."
