Attorney Profile

Jeffrey R. Kooi, born July, 1976, in Hammond, Indiana, was admitted to practice law in the States of Indiana and Illinois in November, 2000. Jeff is the founding and managing partner of Kooi Law Firm, LLC and is licensed to practice law in the States of Illinois and Indiana and before the Federal Courts in the Northern, Central and Southern Districts of Illinois, and the Northern and Southern Districts of Indiana. Jeff is a graduate of the Indiana Trial Advocacy College, and maintains a practice dedicated to the representation of individuals who have suffered personal injury or death in the course of their employment or as a result of negligence or malpractice of others. Jeff was selected by the National Trial Lawyers as Top 100 attorney in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. Jeff had previously been selected three times as a Top 40 under 40 attorney by the National Trial Lawyers and was chosen as an Indiana SuperLawyers Rising Star in 2009.

"Your attorney must aggressively-and skillfully-fight for the best possible outcome," says Jeffrey R. Kooi, founding and managing partner of Kooi Law Firm. "That means not settling unless it is in your best interest." Kooi and the members of his firm are dedicated to representing victims and their families. The Firm's cases involve serious injury and wrongful death arising from trucking and auto accidents, medical malpractice, brain and spinal injuries, work injuries, defective products and nursing home abuse or neglect. Kooi believes in one-on-one interaction with clients. "They need to know what we're doing and why we're doing it at all times," he says. "This is ultimately about their life, and it is their right to be involved in the process from start to finish. It's their case, and that is a fact we never forget." The firm educates clients about the specific details and nuances of each case, including potential outcomes. "We make sure their condition is properly assessed and treated, and we work with each client to evaluate the total ramifications of their loss, both financially and emotionally," Kooi says. Accidents are not confined to business hours. Consequently, neither is the service the firm provides to its clients. If injuries limit the client's mobility, it is not uncommon for Kooi and his team to visit them in the hospital or at their homes. While results are never guaranteed, the firm carefully considers each case before accepting it to maximize its potential. Once on board, the firm dedicates its professional resources and experience to their client's case. "No one can return to you what you've lost," Kooi says. "But we believe you can move forward with the help of strong advice, aggressive representation and compassion. With these core values in mind, our law firm will give you the peace of mind of knowing that you and your family are taken care of."
