About Gary

Learn Gary’s areas of practice.

Gary Annes has been practicing law in Illinois since 1995.  In his time as a lawyer Gary has excelled at obtaining the best possible outcomes for his clients.  Gary's eagerness to work closely with clients to address their individual needs and maximize their recoveries has earned Gary an excellent reputation with his clients and the legal profession in general. 

 

Gary is a partner with Abels & Annes, P.C.   Gary's practice includes personal injury law, auto accidents, premises liability, wrongful death, product liability and medical malpractice. 

 

Gary has successfully collected millions of dollars for his clients through jury trials, arbitration and mediation, and settlement conferences. 

 

Gary earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana.  He earned his Juris Doctor from the Loyola University School of Law in Chicago, Illinois.

 

Gary is a member in good standing of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, the American Association of Justice, the Illinois State Bar Association and Public Justice. 

 

Gary has co-authored publications dealing with the issues of proving damages in personal injury cases, initial investigations in medical malpractice cases and the effective use of alternative dispute resolution procedures. 

 

According to Gary, the purpose of our judicial system is to give every individual the right to seek justice when they or their loved ones are injured or harmed as a result of the negligence of others.  Gary has dedicated his professional life to this pursuit of justice.  The modern judicial system can be a complex maze to the layman, and a skilled and experienced professional is necessary to obtain full justice and maximum compensation for injuries.  It is clear that the insurance industry continued to invest time and money to put up as many barriers as possible to deny regular people the full compensation that they are entitled to. 

 

Gary's dedication to fighting for justice and full compensation for people who have been harmed or injured is evident in everything he does.  Gary's record of success for his clients exemplifies the skill, dedication and experience necessary to prevail in today’s modern legal system. 

 

Gary worked with a defense firm for a number of years before he switched to fight for the rights of people who have been injured or harmed.  While working with the defense firm Gary represented the interests of a variety of clients in the areas of personal injury law, auto accidents, premises liability, construction, wrongful death, toxic tort, insurance coverage and medical malpractice cases at both the Circuit Court and Appellate Court levels in Illinois.

 

While on the defense side Gary learned the tactics used by the insurance industry to limit the recoveries of everyday people.  Gary is now able to use this knowledge and expertise to obtain maximum compensation and full justice for his clients.

I had a great experience!
Abels & Annes assisted me with my Chicago car accident case. I didn't have to do a thing, they took care of everything. Definitely call this law firm for help if you've been hurt in an accident.

Thanks Gary and Dave for your great help
I was hurt in a pedestrian accident. A car hit me while I was walking in a crosswalk. My injuries were severe . I suffered 7 surgeries, I was in a wheel chair for 6 months and I needed help so I turned to Abels & Annes, P.C., a Chicago law firm I found online. From the day I signed up my lawyers were on my side and fighting for me, even when my case got complicated. I had no trouble getting in touch with my attorneys and I was always kept informed about the status of my case. If seriously hurt in an accident, it is reassuring to know that you picked the right legal team to help you. There are a lot of personal injury lawyers in Illinois to choose from and I am happy I chose wisely when I hired Abels & Annes, P.C

Gary did a great job on my case!
Gary helped me out after I was injured in a porch collapse. I was very happy with the quality of his work. He always returned my calls and kept me well informed. I was also very happy with the settlement! I highly recommend him.

Gary got a great result for me
I was hurt in a car accident and had no idea what to do. I found Abels and Annes online. From the first call Gary Annes was a huge help. He explained everything to me and I always felt like I understood what was going on. Gary always returned me calls right away and answered all my questions. Best of all he got me a great result. Much more than I expected. If you need a lawyer definitely give him a call.
