I have been a personal injury attorney for 16 years. I have been fortunate to have experienced a great deal of success representing injury victims and their families. Immediately following law school I became an associate attorney with Patrick J. Kenneally, Ltd., a well-regarded trial law firm representing only injured people. I have never represented insurance companies or corporations. While insurers and big corporations have plenty of help on their side, I have always preferred to represent regular people.
During my many years with the Kenneally firm I was in charge of litigating numerous complex personal injury cases of all kinds. A substantial portion of my practice involved representing victims of medical negligence. But I also represented people injured in construction accidents, motor vehicle collisions, boating accidents, by dangerous products, dangerous premises, malicious animals and, of course, bicycle accidents.
I am a magna cum laude graduate of the University of Pittsburgh and received my law degree from DePaul University. In law school I was awarded for demonstrated excellence in trial advocacy. I have been licensed to practice in Illinois since 1996. I am a member of the Trial Bar of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. I am a member of the American Association for Justice (AAJ) and a member of that group’s Bicycle Litigation Section. I am also a member of the Active Transportation Alliance and the League Of American Bicyclists. I serve as an arbitrator in the Cook County Mandatory Arbitration Program.
