Attorney Profile

A personal injury attorney with a focus on asbestos cases, mesothelioma, valsartan, Actos, Roundup and silicosis, Nicholas J. Vogelzang represents clients in the Chicago, Illinois, metropolitan area. As lead counsel at Vogelzang Law, his representative areas extend outside Chicago to the rest of the state, and he has more than two decades of experience representing those who have paid the painful price of another’s negligence.

At Calvin University, he earned a Bachelor of Arts in political science before moving on to law school. Mr. Vogelzang then graduated from the Saint Louis University School of Law, where he earned his Juris Doctor in 1999. After a long career of representing individuals and their family members who have been injured, he has earned an Avvo “Superb” rating and admission to The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100.

One of his earliest successes was a verdict of $250 million for a client who was exposed to asbestos. Since that verdict, he has represented over 200 families whose family members have been exposed to asbestos while performing job duties in a wide range of industries, including plumbing, chemical engineering, airplane mechanics and sheet metalworking. A passionate advocate for the rights and best interests of the everyday worker in Madison County and Cook County, Mr. Vogelzang is not afraid to take on Fortune 500 companies on behalf of his clients.

Co-founder of the Mesothelioma Race for Justice, Mr. Vogelzang was also honored as the speaker of the Perrin National Asbestos Litigation Conference for two consecutive years. He serves his community by raising awareness about the dangers of certain products, fundraising and educating those around him.
