We’re real people helping our community take on the insurance companies because we don’t like how they treat people. That’s why we treat each case as if it was a friend, loved one or neighbor (the nice kind) being taken advantage of.
We have over 82 years of combined experience between the three attorneys at Schiff Gorman. You’re just starting to know who we are, but the insurance companies are well aware of our relentless approach to each case.
We’ve won over $100 million dollars for our clients. We’re happy to see the hardworking people of Chicago receive what they rightfully deserve, but each case won is a reminder to the insurance companies that we don’t stand for corporate greed.

Medical accidents and errors often result in catastrophic, life-changing injuries. Victims of medical negligence, and their families, deserve to receive full compensation. The law in Illinois is clear. All healthcare providers, including doctors, nurses and hospitals, must be reasonably careful in the services they provide to patients. Medical malpractice is defined as a healthcare provider’s failure act consistent with the “standard of care.” In other words, if a doctor or hospital fails to act as a reasonably careful healthcare practitioner would do under the same circumstances, they are medically negligent.
An attorney’s breach of fiduciary duty may arise from a variety of circumstances including conflicts of interest, failure to abide by the client’s direction and failure to keep the client fully informed. As in a negligence claim, establishing proximate cause is essential to the success of such a claim. Breach of fiduciary claims generally forego the right to a jury trial.
