The best attorney you can find. The "big" firms turned us down, but Andy didn't hesitate to take our case. Very professional, kind, easy to talk to and always explains everything in detail, so YOU can understand. Never a problem to get in touch. Wouldn't recommend any other attorney. Best in chicagoland, and probably the state.

Never received a call back to this day from this firm! Hired different law firm for the job

Sheldon and Maritza worked very hard on my Workmen’s Comp. case. I highly recommend this firm as they are dedicated and have great communication with the client. They treated and fought for my small case as if it was a million dollar case. After years of working with them on this I’m going to miss them. Thank you very much.

Highly satisfied with my experience especially towards the end of my case. I highly recommend atty Minkow.

I was introduced to Attorney Andrew Domin a few years ago when I was desperately in need of representation, for a work related injury and under extreme pressure and threats from my employer to not pursue a claim. Andy was first and foremost compassionate and caring to my situation. Always a professional but most importantly, he went out of his way to get to know me and my family. He fought hard on my behalf when other previous attorneys told me to take a lesser settlement or even give up. Over the course of several years, not months, Andy never stopped advocating for me and tirelessly pushed my case to the best possible outcome. I was never pressured To take a lesser settlement at any time, even to his own financial detriment. Andy kept the case open for years instead of a speedy minimal settlement which is the only way for him to get paid. He cares for his clients interest first, not his own. He earned my complete trust which doesn’t come easy. Google my name and you can see what I was up against, and then you can easily understand why he is so highly recommended by myself, and others, who find themselves facing what seems are insurmountable odds. I can’t thank Andy enough for all he did for me and many others I know and have recommended him to over the last several years. If your looking for a strong and tireless advocate to represent you, Andrew Domin is your man. He is someone I am honored to not only call my Attorney, but also my friend. Sincerely, Frank T. Siciliano

Don't expect much from these attorneys, like a return call or even that they remember your name... They have had my case for over 2 years and my new attorney never read my file and advised me to settle for almost nothing on a career ending injury. I would NOT recommend this firm.

I had the unfortunate experience of falling on silly putty that had been brought to a high school where I was teaching, and I fell and broke my kneecap and needed to endure two surgeries and much time off of my leg. Of course I was at a disadvantage and in a great deal of pain. Being confused, I procured the services of Ridge & Downes Law Offices to help me with compensation and assistance in making my difficulties understood by the Chicago Public Schools where the accident took place. It was clear from the beginning that my association with Ridge & Downes would be a smooth and beneficial experience, and that is exactly how my experience played out. I was kept informed in a professional manner, I was treated with respect throughout negotiations, and I was awarded a settlement that I would never have seen if I had to navigate this potentially negative process on my own or with a lesser law firm. Therefore, my case was settled in a timely manner and my respect for The staff of Ridge & Downes is immeasurable! A five star performance on their part!

I was Hurt badly in 2012 lost my left leg and destroyed most of my body. James Ridge and Amy lee fought endlessly for my rights and my benefits. Hopefully I am not hurt again but if I need to refer anyone to an injury attorney that actually will care Ridge & Downes is who you are looking for. Thank You!!! Ridge and Downes you saved my life and kept me from being homeless.

Jon Walker of Woodruff Johnson & Evans has been the best Attorney I could of ever asked for. Jon was very attentive and answered all of my questions quickly and always gave me great advice. He walked me through the disability process so that I understood what was happening every step of the way. Jon Walker won my case quickly. He is the best disability attorney you could ever have on your side. In my opinion Jon Walker is the top disability Attorney in Illinois.

After 2 1/2 years, this firm finally settled my personal injury suit. A partner was my initial attorney and he didn’t know how to “monetize my case” (his words). It seemed he wanted me to do the work for him. Once he was let go or quit the firm, I was placed with two new attorneys. They finally got my case settled for $50,000. Good news? Nope! They decided to take it upon themselves to contact my bankruptcy trustee to inform them of the settlement even tho I supplied them with my discharge papers and my bankruptcy attorney had told them that there was no legal basis to do so since the bankruptcy was fully discharged. They ignored me, as their client, and my bankruptcy attorney and did what they wanted to do regardless. Of the $50,000, this firm took $20,000 (40%) off the top. They also didn’t pay all the medical bills from the settlement, leaving me with a bill just short of $1000 to pay out of my share. After it was all said and done, they cost me an additional $13,000 for no reason other than their incompetence. I was left with $15,000 of a $50,000 (30%)settlement that took over two years to complete. This firm is not reputable and does not have your best interest in mind. I would highly suggest you find a different firm. Thank me later!

Russ Haugen helped me far beyond what I expected. He was polite and communicated with me every step of the way. Thank you for everything

Steve Sandler did an awesome job for me. His dogged determination resulted in an even better outccome than I expected. Plus, he's super nice, accessible, and a good communicator. Highly recommended.

It was a long 4yr fight.. but Lynn taylor never gave up on my case... Just want to say from the bottom of my heart thank you For everything you did... Your the BEST lawyer.

Explained everything well and helped put me at ease during some difficult times. Being from a family of union members, I would highly recommend the Horwitz Team

Great experience and great people. Mr. Silverman and whole crew did great job on my case. They were fighting for every penny to the end.

Horwitz & Horwitz has had my Workers Comp case for 8 years now with no end to settlement in sight. I haven't heard from my attorney Marc Perper in over a year!!!

Dan DeBias was amazing. He was very professional, informative and was always there when I needed something. Highly recommended

Based on my 3 year case experience with this firm, I WOULD NOT recommend this law firm.

I was involved in a wrongful death lawsuit. After getting nowhere with my original attorney, I hired McNabola Law Group. Ruth Degnan was not only an excellent attorney but her sincere compassion came through with how tirelessly she worked for my justice. Mark McNabola personally oversaw my case and was there to answer questions immediately when I had them. I knew that I was in good hands with Mark and Ruth working for me. I highly recommend them.

After living through a horrible tragedy the last thing I wanted to do was be involved in a wrongful death case. I was nervous and expected it to be a horrendous and painful experience. Mark and his team were so professional and genuine. They offered the support and guidance that we desperately needed without ever overwhelming us. I am so grateful we chose this law group.

My cousin works is an attorney at a small firm in Chicago. I was injured on the job and asked him for help. He was too deep with his workload to give my case the attention it deserved so referred me to Mark McNabola and team. I am very pleased with the customer service and execution of lawyer Jim Knibbs. I hope no one gets hurt, but if you do, go to McNabola Law Group.

Mark is extremely professional, and makes every case and client his top priority. I have both worked with Mark and referred clients to him. He is smart and engaged, and, most importantly, one of the most ethical attorneys I've known. I recommend him unconditionally.

I have known Mark for over 25 years both professionally and personally. I have found him to be an excellent and ethical members of the bar. Recently I was injured in a serous auto accident and I retained Mark to represent me, he has been extremely diligent and works tirelessly in my interest. The Office staff is courteous, polite and responsive. Gia Benline, the paralegal assigned to my case is excellent. I would recommend Mark McNabola and the McNabola Law Group without hesitation or reservation.

I have known and worked with Bob Kreisman for more than 25 years - I have referred literally dozens of clients to Bob for various litigation matters, and I will continue to do so. Bob's professionalism and response is excellent - Bob gets my highest recommendation

I had a legal question and called Kreisman Law Offices. I spoke directly to Bob Kreisman. He was extremely personable and answered my question. He didn’t rush me. I thought that he was extremely knowledgeable and experienced as a lawyer. As it turned out I didn’t need a lawyer, but I appreciated the time he took to talk to me. He even told me I could call again if I had other questions. I thought that was a rare quality in a lawyer. I would recommend him and use him if the need came up.

Robert Kreisman provided me with very valuable guidance. I really appreciated his professional approach and deep experience. I highly recommend Robert Kreisman as an attorney.

There are so many attorneys and many of them say all of the same things, yet who do you pick?

That is exactly what you get with Robert Kreisman Law Offices. From the moment that Bob takes the time to discuss your situation all the way through the process you will know that you made the right choice. He cares, he is responsive, he treats you with care and respect, and you can tell he will fight for you and focus on getting what you deserve. Bob has integrity, a strong value system, and really cares. And it shows up in all aspects of how and his firm work for and with you.

Don't bother telling people their cases are closed for over a year. Apparently of the person who injured you cries broke then this firm just gives up and says they can't be sued because they have no money. Amazing. 200k in medical bills I was hoping to get SOME of back but nope. Maybe they used to be good, they do not care anymore now that they're already rich as hell

They didn't go to bat for my family on the crestwood water case. They settled for millions & offered us less than $800 total. No amount of money will allow me to live my life after what my family and I have gone through but $800?! That's a slap to the face! Update: my mother passed away due to our case & that's still all we were offered.

Love them from the heart.. They are family... The best law firm ever live...

Great Firm, exceeded my expectations in terms of the outcome of settlement. Special thanks to Jay, Mike and Diedre

Working with Jay Deratany has been an absolute pleasure. If you're looking for a Personal Injury Attorney, a medical malpractice attorney, or a car accident attorney in Chicago... I HIGHLY recommend The Deratany Firm!

No amount of money will allow me to live my life after what my family and I have gone through but $800?! That's a slap to the face! Update: my mother passed away due to our case & that's still all we were offered.

After my dog was attacked by a much larger pit mix and required a couple of surgeries and ICU care, I needed help getting the dog owner to do the right thing and pay my bills. I was scared to leave my dog alone to go meet with a lawyer, so Mr. Lane went above and beyond and came to my house to meet with me. He and his team continued to exceed expectations, got the vet bills taken care of, and made sure I had my own physical and mental injuries taken care of too. I am extremely grateful to have this team's help in putting that chapter of my life behind me! Attached is a photo of my recovered and sweet little dog!

Lane & Lane are like family, a wonderful, caring and compassionate group. I appreciate them more than I could ever express. I was injured in 1998 & Lane & Lane successfully settled my personal case. I was again injured in 2018 and Lane & Lane again, stepped up to “bat”, successfully settling my personal case. When my life spiraled out of control due to someone else’s negligence, Lane & Lane were there to help pick of the pieces and make me whole. I recommend Lane & Lane 100%.

Very responsive and helped answer questions. I would highly recommend.

Steve Lane and Kevin Griffith were absolutely wonderful to work with and I highly recommend them for all your legal needs. They are extremely responsive and dedicated.

Outstanding knowledge and precise communication. Our case was complicated but we were guided through it with confidence, and we had a great result.

WORST FIRM EVER!!!!!!!! READ WITH CAUTION. •This place preys on people in accidents somehow gets your number and tell you that your insurance company has partner you with a lawyer who’ll be representing your case for the accident you were in. WHICH WAS A LIE, If they hear about a car accident they go digging for clients number. •They will rush you to physical therapy of at a place of their choice ONLY because they’re good friends with the chiropractor who they do under the table business with to get money. •They will lie to you about how much you will be getting paid! They will drag your case on to the point you’ll be obtaining your own information calling around hospitals and billing for months-years. •When you call to ask about a update they will claim the hospitals haven’t sent anything over and they are still waiting when really they haven’t even sent anything to the hospital.... SO THE PARALEGAL ASSISTANTS ARE CLUELESS AND BARELY UNDERSTAND STANDARD ENGLISH. THE LAWYERS ARE ILLITERATE. THE ONLY TIME THEY WILL SPEAK TO YOU IS FOR THE RECORDED STATEMENT AND SETTLEMENT. •YOU WILL DO ALL OF THAT TO GET A SETTLEMENT OF 2,000 or maybe 3,500 if your lucky! DONT BELIEVE THE HYPE THAT YOU WILL BE GETTING $20,000-$25,000 making you believe once everything settles you’ll be able to bounce back and have a few dollars left HIGHLY MISTAKENLY WE BELIEVED THEM! I WATCHED THEM DO THIS FIRST HAND TO MY SPOUSE •IF YOU BOTHER THEM THEY WILL GET MAD AND THROW CASE OUT

If there is any Law Firm I could have chosen, I would choose Walner Law Firm again. Kristin helped me in every way. She was there for me in my difficult time and she was very communicative and patient along the way. Thank you so much Kristen for being with me every step of the way. This firm was recommended to us from a family friend. Kristin is the best. Stay safe in these scary times.

This is by far the worst law firm in Chicago! If you get in a car accident DO NOT ANSWER THEM. Its been 3 months since my accident. And almost 2 months since my "physical therapy" ended and im yet to hear any update on my case. I have called all of their numbers available and no answer. The receptionist answered once and pretended like she couldn't hear me and hung up! That is definitely NOT PROFESSIONAL!!! After that the line rang and rang and rang and finally one of the operators answered just to put me on a callback list. I don't doubt after this they'll throw my case out! Let's see if this gets their attention atleast. They're just scammers. I JUST WANT A FREAKING UPDATE!!! DONT GO TO THEM!!

This people are by far the worst ever. They are ambulance chasers. What that means is they find clients through police reports and are so unprofessional. Valentina is so heartless and so is Jon Walner. They are rude people and they don’t help. STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS PLACE AND DONT GO WITH THEM!!!!!!!!

The firm did a great job. Thankyou so much.
