About Mark

Learn Mark’s areas of practice.

5
Practice areas
  1. Business
    20%
    My practice has expanded and now involves a fair amount of business litigation matters, including breach of contract cases, partnership disputes, fraud cases, and related litigation. I have been retained to represent both small, family-businesses as well as some larger corporations. Please let me know if I can be of assistance.

    23 years, 100 cases

  2. Car accident
    20%
    Over the last 25 years I have successfully handled hundreds of automobile crash cases. In that time I have recovered millions for clients seriously injured or killed when struck by other vehicles, including cars, truck and even trains. I would be happy to discuss your case with you at your convenience.

    38 years, 500 cases

  3. Personal injury
    20%
    I have been representing injured people since for 25 years. I have handled virtually every type of case, including auto cases, slip and fall cases, construction site injuries; transportation cases; medical, dental and legal malpractice cases and products liability matters. I have tried case throughout the state of Illinois and have recovered millions of dollars for my clients. Please let me know if you wish to discuss your case.

    38 years, 1,000 cases

  4. Insurance
    10%
    In these cases, I represent people who are treated harshly by their insurance company. For example, a person suffers a fire loss at his or her home. When the claim is filed, it is delayed and then denied. And the carrier suggest that the homeowner was involved in the fire. I also handle claims when insurance carriers wrongfuly deny death benefits after an insured has died. Typically the carrier suggests the insured lied on the application. Please call if I can help.

    23 years, 75 cases

  5. Litigation
    10%
    My firm handles a wide variety of civil litigation matters, including personal injury matters, employment litigation, commercial litigation, business disputes and real estate litigation. Additionally, I also handle specialized litigation including chancery matters, such as accountings, and matters requring injunctive relief. Plese contact me if you have an issue you wish to discuss.

    28 years, 150 cases

  6. Medical malpractice
    10%
    Initially, I worked at a large defense firm defending doctors and hospitals. Since starting my own firm, I filed a number of medical malpractice cases against local hospitals and doctors. As these cases are very time and money-intensive, I am very selective about the cases I file and litigate. Over the years I have had success in resolving malpractice cases in Cook, Lake and DuPage Counties. Please contact me if you wish to discuss your case.

    38 years, 50 cases

  7. Workers compensation
    10%

I was born and bred in Chicago and always wanted my own law firm.  After several years of training with some prominent litigation firms, I opened my own practice.  I  wanted my own practice so I could take the cases I want - and not have to get permission form some committtee.

 

I have a trial practice firm with a heavy emphasis on Personal Injury and Wrongful Death matters; Workers' Compensation and Wrongful Discharge cases; Commercial LItigation mattters including breach of contract and fraud matters and some insurance litigation cases against some large carriers for the poor way they treated their insureds.  My clients are usually consumers and small businesses who need someone to guide them through litigation from start to finish.


I am not afraid of the hard cases and work in partnership with my clients to get them the results they deserve.  The buck stops with me - I am the only lawyer you will deal with from the initial meeting through verdict.  Please let me know if I can be of help to you.

Grateful
My specific case wasn’t desirable to most attorneys, but despite that Mr. Loftus took it on and exceeded my expectations. He was quick to respond, constantly kept me posted on his progress, and I am immensely grateful for the settlement he was able to achieve for me. I will be recommending Mr. Loftus to all my family and friends, and intend on using him if need be in the future.

In my corner!
Mark went above and beyond to insure I was taken care of. From the very beginning, he was my advocate and treated me like a member of his family. He made sure I was always current with information and explained each detail. Mark turned an unpleasant situation into an outstanding result!

Excellent
Mark was excellent. He walked me through the case, explained the process, advised, and helped reach a good settlement. He took care of it well and communicated whatever steps he advised I take that he thought was for my benefit. He also advised me of any loopholes to make sure I was taken care of. I would recommend him.
