Phil Berenz is a Chicago injury trial attorney.
His passion for his beliefs of aggressive and zealous representation and true empathy for his clients’ situations, circumstances, life-altering events and suffering shines through at trial time before a jury, in everyday conversations with the opposing attorneys and insurance companies and in every aspect of every single case.
He listens. He does the “right” thing when nobody is looking.
His trust is unequivocally paramount and he follows strict rules of ethics and professionalism with opposing counsel, the Courts and every person involved in every aspect of every matter. Words are bonds.
If you want someone who will "fight" for what you deserve after an injury (from any source), Phil puts his "heart and soul" into your matter.
