Workers’ Compensation Defense
In every matter, we represent our clients the way we ourselves would want to be represented: Aggressively. Fairly. Ethically.
That said — our practice is focused primarily on workers’ compensation defense. In these matters, our lawyers represent and advise clients statewide and at all levels of the workers’ compensation system throughout Illinois.
We are focused
Our practice is almost exclusively dedicated to workers’ compensation defense. We know the laws. We understand the medical issues. We appear regularly at administrative hearings and in courtrooms throughout Illinois on behalf of our clients.
We try cases
A lot of them. More importantly, our opponents know that when we take a case to trial, it isn’t just a strategic move designed to promote settlement. They know we take cases to trial because we think we’ll win — and that, often, we do just that.
We plan ahead
Our attorneys will provide you with a detailed legal blueprint of the situation as it stands now. This blueprint includes our honest and knowledgeable assessment of your likely trial exposure and the settlement value of the claim, along with our assessment as to whether the claim ought to be settled or defended strongly. We also provide our clients an action plan outlining our options and make suggestions on what steps we need to take to move forward with a claim.
We answer your questions
Whether or not you refer a specific workers’ compensation file to our law firm, our lawyers are available to answer your questions on any individual issues such as suspension or termination of benefits and independent medical examinations.
We take care of you
Hard work and a commitment to client service have made our firm a success. Refusing to take this for granted, we treat our clients with respect. We honor their needs and objectives. We provide services in a timely, cost-effective manner. We communicate and conduct ourselves with honesty and fairness at all times.
Our promise to you is this: Whether we are representing you in a work comp compensability and benefits assessment or in a third-party claim — we will strive to give not just outstanding service, but to give value as well and to exceed your expectations in every respect.
To those ends, we use state-of the-art technology and cost-effective methods to provide services in a timely, client-oriented manner. We return phone calls and e-mails promptly, report regularly on cases and are up front and ethical about our fees so that there simply are no “unpleasant surprises.”
In short, our attorneys focus on your background, needs, and goals — nothing else. This is where success has to start and, here, it does.
