Kevin M. Collopy, one of the principal attorneys of Drake & Collopy, P.C., has dedicated his legal career to representing injury and accident victims of all types. He has successfully recovered millions of dollars in compensation on behalf of clients in personal injury, workers’ compensation, wrongful death, construction negligence, animal attack, dram shop, and medical and dental malpractice cases. He has concentrated his practice on the representation of personal injury and workers’ compensation clients since joining the firm in early 1999.

Kevin was born and raised in St. Paul, Minnesota. He moved to Chicago in 1986 to attend the Illinois Institute of Technology, where he obtained a degree in aerospace engineering in 1990. Subsequently, he worked as a design engineer on a U.S. government cruise missile project as well as on commercial aircraft structures for General Dynamics in San Diego, California. He returned to Chicago in 1992 and worked as a mechanical engineer while attending law school at Chicago-Kent College of Law. He was admitted to the bar in 1998, and shortly thereafter joined Paul I. Drake in his law practice, Paul I. Drake & Associates, P.C. His technical training and experience have been invaluable throughout his legal career in analyzing the complex legal and technical issues that often accompany personal injury cases. Kevin currently resides in the Wicker Park area of Chicago.

Highly recommend
Paul Drake and Kevin Collopy were recommended to me after sustaining a life changing knee injury as a result of a car accident. My experience was nothing short of amazing. I never doubted I wouldn’t be appropriately compensated for what I suffered, and the process was nearly stress free. I was always kept in the loop of things and treated in a compassionate and professional manner. Ultimately, they resolved my case for $837,000.00. Though I hope to never need their services again, I will never hesitate to contact them if needed and I will always highly recommend Drake & Collopy to friends and family. Thank you!!

Excellent, compassionate and professional
I was seriously injured at work and was dealing with the nightmare of workman' comp. I took a relatives advice and looked for an attorney. I found Kevin on the internet. From our first meeting in my home through the three year process to a settlement, Kevin answered or returned every call and email, calmed my nerves, worked through each crisis and always kept us in the loop. Now, because of the settlement, we've been able to relocate to Florida and begin a new life. While I'll never physically be the man I was- Kevin made it possible for us to pick up the pieces and move on. Call him, you won't regret it. I certainly never will.
