Attorney Profile

Advocating for construction workers; auto crash, slip and fall, and animal attack victims and others in personal injury cases, Steven R. Levin has a history of helping people get back on their feet after an accident. As an attorney at Levin Riback & Adelman P.C., he represents people in Cook County, the collar counties around Chicago, and south Florida. Mr. Levin has recovered over $70 million dollars for his clients.

Providing outstanding representation requires an attorney who truly cares. Mr. Levin not only devotes countless hours to his practice, but he also shares his experiences with others as he trains and mentors young lawyers. Additionally, Mr. Levin is a member of the Illinois State Bar Association, Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, and Florida Bar Association, each of which provides him with the opportunity to learn new tactics and have access to invaluable resources.

Keenly aware of the dangers on construction sites, Mr. Levin knows how to spot unsafe conditions and third-party responsibility. He personally digs through case details to put together a comprehensive argument that outlines the extensive damages these workers often suffer. Workers’ compensation only addresses certain losses, and employees may have rights to pursue a third party lawsuit to recover an award.

Mr. Levin’s dedication to clients has resulted in obtaining justice for union and other workers. Furthermore, it is his intention to ensure that unsafe working conditions are corrected and the mistakes that were made are not repeated. He has taken more than 35 cases to trial.

For his accomplishments, Mr. Levin holds the highest peer rating possible of AV Preeminent* from Martindale-Hubbell. He received a Bachelor of Arts from Tulane University in 1979 and a Juris Doctor from Tulane University Law School in 1981.

Outside his practice, Mr. Levin worked as a volunteer scuba diver at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago for over a decade.
