    Attorney Profile

    An associate at Clifford Law Offices PC, Joseph L. Rourke focuses his practice exclusively on personal injury and wrongful death litigation, with a particular emphasis on medical malpractice claims. He works out of the firm's offices in Chicago, Illinois, and he represents clients throughout the greater metropolitan area. Mr. Rourke attended Heidelberg University as an undergraduate, where he majored in economics with a minor in legal studies. He was a member of the school's varsity men's basketball team before receiving a Bachelor of Science in 2011. Mr. Rourke then went on to pursue his legal education in Chicago at what was then known as The John Marshall Law School, and in 2014 he was awarded his Juris Doctor.

    Mr. Rourke's client base is comprised of people who have been harmed as the direct result of the negligence of other persons or entities. In addition to his complex medical malpractice caseload, he has handled claims involving aviation accidents as well as truck and other motor vehicle crashes, and he has worked on both class actions and single-plaintiff lawsuits. Mr. Rourke has been able to obtain significant compensation for his clients, through jury awards and well as through settlements that he has negotiated out of court with defendants and their liability insurance carriers. Prior to representing plaintiffs, he worked for an insurance defense law firm, and that experience has allowed him to often anticipate the types of tactics insurance companies will employ in these types of lawsuits.

    Mr. Rourke has been admitted to practice before all Illinois state courts since 2015. In order to stay abreast of current developments in his practice area and to forge connections with fellow members of the bar, he is a member of several legal organizations.
