Alexander Nicholas Loftus

also known as Alexander Nicholas Hattimer

About me

Alexander Loftus has won a wide range of significant cases through mediation, arbitration, and trial including claims arising from breach of contract, fraud, construction, shareholder suits, malpractice, and employment. Alexander has handled appeals before the Seventh Circuit, Illinois Appellate Courts, United States Supreme Court, and represented Amicus Curiae before the Illinois Supreme Court.

  • A retired judge who mediated a complex trust case stated, “(Alexander’s) performance in the mediation was outstanding… He spun gold from straw”

  • Opposing counsel (successful trial lawyer with over thirty years experience) said at the begining of his closing argument "I would also like to personally thank Mr. Loftus. Alex, you are a true professional and a gentleman, and he knows more about trying a jury trial case in the State of Illinois than I will every know, so I appreciate your knowledge and expertise."

  • A client in a dispute of $550,000 in estate assets wrote: “Alexander Loftus is an exceptional attorney. He recently represented me on a complex trust litigation matter and throughout, he was extremely thorough and insightful regarding all aspects of my case that would not have been resolved as quickly and effectively had it not been for Alexander's diligence and outstanding communication skills.”

  • A breach of contract client whose case settled favorably despite facing a significant counterclaim wrote: “Alexander is a very detailed, highly educated attorney… he really takes the time to make sure everything is done correctly and within the law.

In 2013, 2014, and 2015 Super Lawyers named Alexander as being one of less than 2.5% of Illinois attorneys under age 40 selected for inclusion in Illinois Super Lawyers Rising Stars.  Alexander was also included in the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in Illinois by the National Trial Lawyers for 2013, 2014, and 2015. In 2014 Alexander was included in the Top 40 Litigators Under Age 40 by the American Society of Legal Advocates. The American Society of Legal Advocates exclusive membership comprises less than 1.5% of all licensed attorneys nationwide.

Alexander grew up in a small town in Southern Wisconsin and went to college in Saint Paul, Minnesota and Washington, D.C. In college he studied Political Science and was a member of Pi Sigma Alpha (national political science honor society). While studying at American University, Alexander held his first legal position as an investigator for Mental Health Division of Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia. Shortly thereafter, he graduated from DePaul University College of Law with honors in 2010. While at DePaul he was an Editor and Staff Writer for the DePaul/Commercial Law League of America Business & Commercial Law Journal.

  • Joseph Peter Lupinacci

    Mr. Loftus has demonstrated amazing talent in several complex legal matters. He has extensive knowledge of the law and his experience proves its value daily. He shows great subtlety of thought and analysis, which are two characteristics that I believe to be critical for a successful attorney. He is personable and has an upstanding moral character. He is prudent, thorough, clear and articulate. I believe that Mr. Loftus practices in one of the most analytically challenging areas of the law and he unequivocally grasps the requisite discipline to excel. I unhesitatingly endorse him.
