Trial attorney focusing on catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death litigation on behalf of injured persons and families. I understand that the tragic circumstances that bring clients to seek my services are life changing. I work together with each client so that they fully understand the process and so that they are fully engaged in obtaining full compensation.
I have tried and settled cases for millions of dollars. Representative cases include: A record breaking verdict of $25,000,000 in Lake County, Indiana, in a wrongful death case, where my client's husband was killed by a drunk driver who had been drinking at two different bars for 11 hours before getting in his car and driving. A $17,500,000 record breaking settlement in Peoria County, Illinois for a client who had a hernia repair surgery after which he became blind and bedridden. I alleged there was negligent medical care during and after the surgery resulting in tragic injuries. Also, I have a record breaking verdict of $50,000,000 against the City of Chicago in a case involving paramedics response to a 911 call.
Specialties: I focus my practice on representing the victims of medical negligence, wrongful death, trucking collisions, and construction negligence.
