I have been handling civil jury trials for 40 years.  The highest level of compliment that I have received over these years has come from clients that express their gratification of the work that I have done on their behalf.  I have a collection of notes and letters from individuals who have gone out of their way to thank me and my staff for a job well done. Those notes and letters remain the highest level of praise for my devotion to clients and in helping them solve their issues and concerns. I truly cherish those compliments.

Whether I am helping someone on the phone solve an issue or doing pro bono work, I sincerely enjoy helping people.  In my practice I come in contact with people from all walks of life.  This includes experts in technical and sophisticated areas of science or medicine. I have represented truck drivers, factory workers, house wives, the unemployed, the disabled, children of all ages, engineers, cab drivers, bike messengers and business executives and professionals. I believe that I treat all of my clients with respect and show each of them that I am responsible, reliable, honest and forthcoming.  I am also tenacious and hardworking when it comes to the cases I handle for my clients.

Bob is on your side to the end! Easy 5 stars!
I have a case that we started back in 2016. We have been dealing with every last desperate attempt to delay the ending of a case we won. He has been great with communication and has been very diligent on keeping my case moving forward. Thank you Bob for all you do for me and my family.

Robert Kreisman is a compassionate, conscientious attorney. His tenacity, energy to fight for you and knowledge of personal injury case law is stellar. I don't know what my family would have done without his help and dedication to make sure I received compensation for injuries and loss of work. Thank you Robert Kreisman.

Great Chicago Attorney!
Mr. Kreisman has always offered great advice and directed me in the right path. He helped my son and I achieve the highest possible settlement with respect to our motor vehicle accident. I would definitely recommend him if you are in need of an attorney.
