The Money You Need To Move Forward
You are not asking for much. Not really. You simply want the money necessary to cover your medical bills and lost wages and to compensate you for the pain and suffering you have experienced as a result of someone else’s negligence. You just want to move forward.

Unfortunately, that is easier said than done. The insurance company will fight you every step of the way, trying to get you to accept a lowball settlement or offering no money at all. You need an advocate on your side who can stand up to the insurance company and help you get fair compensation. You can find that advocate at Budin Law Offices in Chicago.

For more than 25 years, we have gone up against major insurers and forced them to do what is right for personal injury victims. We also help injured workers get workers’ compensation benefits. Let us help you move forward.

A person who cares
John Budin is a lawyer's lawyer. I have fortunately used his services over a 16 year period. I first retained him in a matter involving an accident which had the type of injuries that are not always easily proven nor graphic. He understoid and was brilliant in proving the serious extent of the injury. On two other occasions, he obtained excellent results. He listens, is caring, intelligent in his management and amazing in the way he stays in touch,communicates and obtains successful resolution.
