Attorney Profile

From the time more than 25 years ago when he was admitted to practice law in Illinois, James A. Karamanis has been serving injured clients in Chicago, Illinois, and throughout Cook County. A partner at Karamanis Law Group, LLC, he is a fierce advocate for victims of medical malpractice, motor vehicle and truck accidents, and for the families of those who have died as the result of another’s negligent actions.

In preparation for his career, Mr. Karamanis earned a Bachelor of Science from the University of Wisconsin in 1983. He then graduated from the New York Law School with a Juris Doctor, and went on to acquire a Master of Laws in international legal studies from New York University. In addition to the educational background that allows him to reach a diverse clientele, Mr. Karamanis speaks fluent Greek.

Between conception and the first few days of a child’s life outside the womb, women trust their physicians to perform the necessary tests, provide medical information and do what they can to prevent birth injuries, brain damage and other defects. When a physician failed to fulfill these duties for one pregnant woman, Mr. Karamanis represented the mother in what became the first successful wrongful birth case in the state, achieving a verdict for more than half a million dollars.

A member of The Chicago Bar Association, the Illinois State Bar Association, the American Bar Association’s Section of International Law, and the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, Mr. Karamanis is highly respected in the legal community. He is admitted to practice in New York and Illinois, as well as before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois and the U.S. District Court for the Central District of Illinois.
