    Attorney Profile

    Lindsey S. Strom is an experienced advocate for clients in the Greater Chicago Area and beyond. Educated in speech communications before attending law school, Ms. Strom displays passion and vigor toward every case. With a career record that demonstrates her versatility in the courtroom, Ms. Strom has devoted her practice to fighting on behalf of injured workers.

    Having worked for the Cook County State Attorney's Office while in law school, Ms. Strom gained valuable experience with the Juvenile Justice Bureau. Further, her experience in prosecuting juvenile narcotics cases and domestic violence cases shows her willingness to manage cases that are complex and often emotionally charged. During her time at the Juvenile Justice Bureau, Ms. Strom obtained her 711 license as well.

    After moving on from the State Attorney's Office, Ms. Strom worked as a workers' compensation defense attorney, representing insurance companies. This experience has been invaluable to her current practice as a workers' compensation attorney at Strom & Associates, located in downtown Chicago. Now, Ms. Strom fights on behalf of injured workers and works hard to ensure that every case gets the attention that it deserves.

    Ms. Strom continues to stay abreast of current legal trends in workers' compensation law by maintaining membership at various organizations. She is a member of the Workers' Compensation Lawyers Association, the Chicago Bar Association, the Illinois State Bar Association, and the American Bar Association.  In 2013, she was also named one of the Top Women Attorneys in Illinois by Superlawyers and Chicago Magazine.  In 2013, Lindsey became a board member of the Workers' Compensation Lawyers Association (WCLA) Young Lawyers Section. In 2017, she became a member of the WCLA's Board of Directors where she currently sits.

    From 2015 through 2018, Lindsey was recognized as one of the '10 Best' attorneys for Illinois by the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys. From 2015-2018, Lindsey was also recognized as an "Emerging Lawyer" in Illinois. Emerging Lawyers are made up of the top 2% of lawyers who are 40 years old or younger, or practicing law for 10 years or less, and have proven themselves professional, ethical and experienced at an early point in their legal career.

    In 2016, Lindsey was recognized by Chicago Lawyer for their "Women Leadership" issue. She was once again a "Rising Stars" selectee by Superlawyers in 2017, 2018 and 2019. In June 2017, Lindsey was selected by her peers as one of Chicago Lawyer's Emerging Women Lawyers. She appears in the June 2017 Chicago Lawyer Magazine issue.

    By continuing to educate herself on current legal matters, Ms. Strom demonstrates that she places high priority on her clients and their needs, and she is prepared to tackle even the most complex or challenging case.
