Every time I would call to get information for my uncles case, no one would call back. I’ve left Donna’s assistant Veronica numerous voicemails & never got a call back. Definitely recommend you looking for another attorney, unless you don’t want a call back, then I suggest you stay here and get ignored. They do call you when you they want to take your case after you sign up with them it’s like you don’t matter. Best thing my uncle did was get another attorney.

Mark and his team did a great job settling my case ,always returned phone calls & emails keeping me informed. I would recommend him to family and friends

Mark is a great attorney! Made me feel very confident through this whole legal process. I would recommend anyone who is new to work comp to look into Mark!

I’ve been a carpenter union carpenter for 30 years in those 30 years I’ve had many injuries , going back to 1995 when I first met Peter Corti and Mark DiPaolo they represented me top notch professionalism , most important they sent me to the best doctors in the Chicago land area , and when I got back on my feet they got me the best monetary awards possible , I cannot say enough good things about Peter and Mark over the lifetime of my career , Tom Cunningham Carpenter local 62 .

Donna and her team did more than enough to help me out. I am very pleased with her services. She filed my case and had me a check ready within one year! I highly recommend this firm!!!!

Went all out good communication and service.

They do not do anything they say they will do. My case is very time and emotionally sensitive yet they treated me like a nobody and blew me off after having me sign all these contracts.

Clint Pierce was my lawyer for a personal injury claim I had from a car Injury. He was able to get me the settlement that I was owed from the insurance company without any problems or hassle. Clint was very smart and respectful during the whole process. Thank you Clint !

Michael Mertz helped our family during a difficult time. He was very involved and stayed in contact with me throughout the case. Michael kept me informed and always returned my calls and emails whenever I had questions. Michael is an excellent attorney who is respectable and very knowledgeable. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Michael Mertz and his firm if the need ever arises again and I will certainly recommend this firm to family and friends.

My questions were always answered in a timely and restful way.

John Budin and the staff at Budin Law offices are exceptional and professional. They make you feel welcomed as soon as you walk in the door. My experience with them put me at ease with what I was going through. They kept me updated on everything that was going on and whenever I needed to ask them something they were always available to answer my questions. Everything was upfront and on point. I want to say a special thank you to Rosa. She was always very friendly and always helpful whenever I needed anything. I would definitely recommend anyone I know to them. I myself hope I never need an attorney again but if I did I know I would feel safe and at ease going back to them. Thank you again for your services.

Thank you for your help with this process. The information and suggestions you shared with me made it possible to make decisions that I feel were best for me. I appreciate that you always took time to answer my questions and that you explained actions taken by your office, the insurance carriers and other party(s) involved.

The best and most honest lawyer I’ve dealt with in my life. Also his assistant Ester Was so informative, caring and constantly checking on me. She kept me updated on my case. They did an amazing job at winning my case. I thank them a lot.

The entire law firm was very professional and courteous. They were very thorough through out my entire experience. I felt like everyone really cared about me personally.

John Budin@ Budin Law recently settled a claim for me. I was very satisfied with his work and attention to detail. I fractured my ankle 2 years ago. The insurance adjuster offered me a lowball settlement. I tried to negotiate with them and got nowhere. I was recommended to John Budin, who took on my case. He fought hard for me, not willing to accept their text book offer. He went back and battled for much larger settlement. As a result, I received a much larger compensation that included additional funds so that I could get more physical therapy treatments. Mr. Budin was very professional through out the negotiation process. He always explained what he was trying to accomplish. Ester, his paralegal was always available to answer any questions I might have and always so friendly. I highly recommend the services of John and his staff.

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.

Jesse Gonzalez handled my personal injury case and I am very pleased with the outcome. He was straightforward, transparent, professional, very honest and reassuring with the whole process. He was patient and great at explaining the legal terms and process step by step with me as I had no experience with it what so ever. Mark Karno and associates were great to work with. They are very strong advocates for their clients and highly recommend their team.

I want to thank everyone in the firm who has worked on my case, I truly appreciate every single one of you. I gave you guys five stars but I wish I can give you 10. If anyone is looking for a lawyer look no further, this is the team you want on your side. Thank you!

Jesse Gonzalez managed a car injury case for me, and from the onset of the case, he was transparent, honest, professional, informative, prepared, and thorough. He consistently explained processes and law nomenclature to me when I was unclear or when I was simply overwhelmed by the processes, and he guided me when needed, for deposition and testimony. His communication was clear and he always took time to explain researched items related to the case when I had difficulty understanding. Jesse and his team made sure that I understood each part of the legal process and procedures as my case advanced towards finalization. Great person and firm to work with!

Karno Law took very good care of me. I was devistated when I was injured and was referred to them by my work colleague. From the moment they looked at my case, they were very caring and welcoming. They walked me through the entire process and answered all of my questions in a timely manner. Since this was all new to me, I had a million questions and they made sure that I understood everything. They set expectations early on and had continuous follow-up. Not only did they treat me like a human, they were very patient with me and this was true for the entire staff. Rebecca Israel, in particular, was nothing short of amazing and was my voice for the majority of the process. She was so kind and patient with me since English is not my first language. She made me feel very comfortable and eased my nerves every time we spoke. She is an example of what a professional attorney should be. I would most definitely recommend her and the entire Karno staff to anyone in my friends and family circle. Lastly, they were able to get me what I deserved and more in my lawsuit. Thank you again for everything!

I love the way everyone handle business! Highly recommend! Will come back for future business!!

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.

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.

    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%.

Building on each other's expertise using proven methods greatly benefits you. I strongly recommend Schiff Gorman for your legal representation.

Tom Gorman is a great attorney and a very genuine person. Him and his office took great care of me and provided me with excellent service, showing professionalism and personal attention to all the details. They also provided answers and solutions to all my problems, questions and concerns. They were respectful and very attentive! Tom made all the legal matters the walk in the park and I would highly recommend him and his office to anyone in need!

Schiff Gorman LLC as well as their staff are very kind and caring not only are you treated in the most professional way possible but you also are treated like family.

I am naturally very inquizitive. I find comfort in understanding the process of things. Elliot & Ryan took the time to break things down for me so I could comprehend... sort of on layman's terms so to speak. That says a lot when you're speaking about legal wording. I'm glad I went to them. My whole experience has been very positive.

Elliot is a consummate professional. He sets the bar. He is respected, candid and fair and most of all, he has integrity which many lawyers do not - -they will take your cases for $$, Elliot will not take a case he does not believe in not only in settlement but also in principle.

I am very pleased to recommend this Chicago Injury Attorney. He works very hard for every client and law is an art. Dean is an artist with talent, experience and heart of gold. He gets results and so if you were injured don't hesitate to contact Dean and his staff today. My dad was a lawyer much like Dean, too. They are born to help to people when they need help the most.

Recommend Dean Caras and this firm was on top of my case every step of the way extremely satisfied with the results.

Dean Caras and Carissa Meyer did outstanding work on my behalf after I was involved in a motorcycle accident. I sustained significant injuries. When I attempted to settle with the at-fault party's insiurance company, I was receiving ridiculously low settlement offers despite my legitimate and significant injuries. Dean and Carissa were exceptionally knowledgeable of all of the factors that would impact my claim. Through their conscientious and caring efforts, I was able to obtain a far more beneficial and fair settlement than I would have by dealing directly with the at-fault party's insurance company. I am very pleased with the outcome and would highly recommend the Caras Law Group.

Dean Caras and Associates provided me with exceptional legal services. He handled my personal injury case and provided me with more than my desired outcome. His office provided prompt and efficient service, and his staff was always overly friendly and welcoming. This is not the first time Dean Caras has represented me - I have utilized his services in the past and will not hesitate to contact him in the future. I would highly recommend his services, as he has been and continues to be helpful to myself and my family and friends.

Caras Law Group represented me after a was rear ended on LSD in Chicago. Dean’s knowledge and professionalism is truly beyond compare. He has always been very responsive to my needs and in my opinion is one of the best attorneys that I have worked with. I would recommend Caras Law Group to anyone without hesitation.

There is so MUCH that I could share regarding Lauren. She is by far - beyond amazing. Her level of knowledge and expertise as it relates to personal injury and all that the processes entail, is impeccable. Lauren Buchanan is indeed the ONE that you want on your side…. fighting the battles with you and for you. She understands and THAT shows in her work ethics. Lauren is a personal injury Attorney (firm) of great poise and integrity. That’s an understatement. ???? I absolutely LOVE Lauren.

Lauren is amazing. She helped me through a tough time after an accident and worked diligently to get me and my family what we deserved. She checked in frequently with us and kept us up to date with any and all changes. I wouldn't hesitated in the slightest to refer Lauren A. Buchanan & Associates to anyone that would be in need of her services.

Having never had anything to do with the legal system in my life when I got hurt until the day my case settled I had a million questions. Lauren had the patience of a saint and never failed to answer my questions the same day and usually within hours. She was available to me always via text, email, or phone. Her knowledge and expertise brought my case to a favorable conclusion and her kindness and compassion for what I was going through will never be forgotten. If you want someone to handle your personal injury case with a vast knowledge of the legal system and someone who truly cares about you then Lauren A. Buchanan & Associates is where you want to turn.

During a difficult time of my life, Lauren Buchanan was there. We first met at the hospital where my husband was having back surgery (not related to my accident). I remember asking her why you would take my case not knowing how it would end. She reassured me that she will be right there to fight for me every step of the way. I love how she explained every single detail of my case to my understanding. I will always be grateful for Lauren and JB’s kindness. Lauren Buchanan & Associates went above and beyond to fight for my well being. I am blessed to know that I have a new friend I can call just to say hi.

Ms. Buchanan provided a detailed explanation of the process and progress of my case. She explained the options, expenses, and likelihood of various outcomes. I appreciated knowing what to expect throughout the process. I recommend working with Ms. Buchanan. Her kindness and attention made a very stressful and uncomfortable situation manageable.
