I was rear ended and tried settling with the other drivers’ insurance company to no avail. I retained John M. Kovac for my case which involved serious injury to myself and total damage to my vehicle. Due to the complexity of my case because there were two collisions John was able to get a settlement from the initial driver’s policy. John continues to fight tirelessly to get the second part of my claim resolved. I have been informed of any developments that have occurred in my cases. John explained any legal terminology in laments terms so that I understood every step of the processes. I highly recommend John as he is accessible, honest and he genuinely cares about his clients well being above all else.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My cases are normally handled on a contingency basis, which means that there is no fee owed by the client unless and until a monetary recovery is obtained. My standard fee for most personal injury cases is 1/3 (33.33%) of the total gross recovery obtained, before deduction of any case expenses. The fee may vary (higher or lower) in some cases. For example, in some cases the amount of the attorney's fee is limited by Illinois law. The maximum fee in workers compensation cases is 20% of the gross recovery.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The intake process begins with an initial phone interview. If a case has potential merit, a follow-up meeting is scheduled with the attorney. An attorney-client representation agreement must be signed before any legal work is commenced. A medical release must also be signed to obtain medical records. Generally communications with clients are conducted by phone, mail, fax, email or text, and occasional meetings as needed. Clients are kept informed about the progress of their case on a regular basis and any new developments that may arise.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have practiced personal injury law for over 30 years in Illinois. My practice is limited to injury law. I graduated from IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law in 1985 and afterwards worked for several prominent Chicago personal injury law firms, before starting my own practice in 1997. I have a broad range of knowledge and experience and have handled numerous jury trials, arbitrations and appeals, including a case in the Illinois Supreme Court. I have also testified in court as an expert legal witness. Before law school, I earned my B.A. from Northwestern University, where I majored in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and also studied Microbiology and Human Physiology at Harvard University.
