Attorney Profile

Attorney Robert J. Rooth is the founder and president of The Rooth Law Firm in Evanston, Illinois. A nationally ranked trial lawyer with more than 36 years of total legal experience, Mr. Rooth provides invaluable counsel and support to clients throughout the greater Chicago metro region and all across the state who have suffered injuries or lost loved ones due to someone else's negligence or wrongdoing.

An attorney since 1984, Mr. Rooth has focused on plaintiff personal injury litigation since 1987, and he has achieved a long record of securing successful results for his clients adversely affected by nursing home neglect, medical malpractice, burn injuries, closed-head injuries and other preventable tragedies.

Among his most notable successes, he was part of a high-profile medical malpractice case, where he helped secure a verdict of more than $16 million on behalf of a partially paralyzed victim, and he has been involved other complex cases as well, such as the Cline Avenue Bridge Collapse and the Achille Lauro cruise ship hijacking.

Although he has extensive experience with all types of personal injury and wrongful death claims, Mr. Rooth has become a recognized authority on nursing home neglect cases, which have become a significant portion of his practice. No matter the cause of his clients' suffering, he maintains an unwavering focus on protecting their rights at all turns, and he finds great reward in being a zealous advocate and a compassionate counselor to help so many during their times of dire need.

Honored for his outstanding professionalism and service, Mr. Rooth has earned consistent top rankings and endorsements from his peers along with excellent client ratings on Avvo. He has also received numerous testimonials and referrals from his satisfied clients who have offered praise regarding his dedicated support, open communication and tireless work ethic at helping them achieve the most favorable outcomes possible for their unfortunate situations.

A 1981 graduate of Indiana University, Mr. Rooth obtained his Juris Doctor in 1984 from DePaul University College of Law. He is an active member of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, the Illinois State Bar Association and the American Association of Justice, among his other professional affiliations.
