    Attorney Profile

    Attorney Jack J. Casciato is a partner with Clifford Law Offices PC in Chicago, Illinois. Nationally regarded as an emerging leader in his field, Mr. Casciato focuses his practice solely on personal injury law, and he has become a recognized authority on commercial truck accident claims. He also handles all other types of personal injury and wrongful death claims arising from medical malpractice, construction issues, defective products, premises liability matters and more.

    A former insurance defense attorney, Mr. Casciato has invaluable insight into the industry and the tactics insurance providers use to reduce or deny claims. As such, he has the skills and resources necessary to provide the most effective strategy possible to help his plaintiff clients obtain the maximum amount of compensation for the injuries and losses they have suffered, and he has secured millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts for those he has served.

    Among his most recent successes, he secured a settlement of more than $6.2 million for an injured construction worker and a $3 million settlement for the victims of a bus accident. Honored for his outstanding professionalism and service, Mr. Casciato has earned inclusions into the Emerging Lawyer and Top 40 Under 40 lists by the Law Bulletin Publishing Company along with many other top rankings and endorsements from his peers.

    A highly personable and compassionate lawyer, Mr. Casciato has also received numerous testimonials and referrals from his satisfied clients, and he finds great reward in being able to help so many during their most dire times of need. Along with maintaining a successful legal practice, he regularly provides pro bono services for those less fortunate in his area, and he has become a staunch advocate for domestic violence and sexual abuse victims.

    A 2008 graduate of DePaul University, Mr. Casciato obtained his Juris Doctor from the University of the District of Columbia, David A. Clarke School of Law in 2011, where he was a dean's scholar. During this time, he completed an internship with the Washington, D.C., mayor's office, and he served as teaching assistant for torts and criminal law. He also completed thousands of hours of total pro bono service in D.C. and in Mississippi.

    Mr. Casciato is an active member of the Chicago Bar Association and the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, among his other professional affiliations, and he has written extensively and conducted lectures and seminars throughout the country on a variety of legal topics.
