Mr. Matsas is by far the kindest, most compassionate, friendly lawyer I have ever worked with. He is a very caring person who puts your legal needs before anything else. He legitimately wants you to be reassured and know that he is on your side, fighting for you. And I always felt like I was in the best of hands in all of my legal situations. I know that in times such as those when you need legal representation it can be overwhelming and scary but Mr. Matsas really put me at ease and reassured me through every worry. I can honestly not say enough good things about this man and his team. I have had other lawyers treat me like a paycheck (for lack of a better word) but I never ever felt like that with Mr. Matsas and his associates. I'm extremely lucky to have had him on my side and I would recommend him to absolutely anyone who is in need of a kind, genuinely good hearted, very talented lawyer.

My husband and I were on vacation when things turned ugly. I had an accident and broke my ankle. Needless to say our vacation was ruined! My son recommended Michael to handle my injury case, which turned out to be the best suggestion ever given to me! During our first conversation, Michael calmed my nerves and took the time to explain the process of going through an injury case, and answered all my questions. He would call to give me regular updates on progress, and also just to check up on me and see how I was doing with my recovery. I felt like I was dealing with a friend and not just some typical attorney. I was very impressed with his knowledge of the injury and the medical aspects of my case. He fought extremely hard for me. The responsible company (large multinational corporation) tried to lowball me with their offers, but Michael never backed down and kept fighting. When we settled (6 figures) it was much more than I could have imagined! I would highly recommend Michael to anyone who needs a personal injury attorney. Dealing with an injury is very tough both physically and emotionally. Michael really stepped up for us. I am very thankful for his dedication to my case! Janice K.

My case has just begun. I've talked to other personal injury lawyers. The ONLY one who impressed me was, Mr. Bernez. He was compassionate and understanding. I was having a horrible experience with an insurance claim. My helplessness and fears have all been put to rest, thanks to Mr. Bernez. I'm actually hopeful for a very positive outcome.

Tom has been my trusted legal consult for the past year, and he has also provided service within my extended family as well. You will not find a more authentic, caring and hard-working personal injury lawyer in Chicago. He is an unbelievably unique attorney and person, as he treats you and your situation as he would his own family. He has provided the best legal advice-and most importantly; he returned all calls and emails personally in the timeliest fashion. Tom went into law to help people, and the second you meet him, you will know that you are in the right hands. He is smart, strong and attentive. He works harder than any other lawyer I have ever met. He has been running a non-profit for at-risk youth in Chicago for 25 years and has made a vast difference in the lives of those who are less fortunate-because this is who he is-a person who cares about everyone who comes into his life, and this includes how he treats his clients. He offers a free consultation and makes the time to handle everything on a personal basis. If you need a lawyer, you will be in the best hands for representation.

This man is by far the best attorney Ive ever worked with; And that's really saying something lol. I have over a dozen arrests, three felony convictions for possession and disorderly conduct, plus a prior dui and domestic conviction. The dui of which I was shamefully still on supervision for when I was arrested by the Streamwood police dept for dui and possession of paraphenilia and a controlled substance. The overly-high priced hoity-toity attorneys didnt even want to take my dui and possession case as they viewed it as unwinnable. Not only did Ron charge me thousands less than those guys wanted, but he won this supposedly "unwinnable" case. He treated me with respect, he was polite to my family members, and he leveled with me as opposed to trying to sell me dreams. He worked his tail off for me, took the case to trial for no additional fee, and won the case with flying colors. Because of my backgroud, I was facing a maximum of 8 years in prison and my drivers license was to be revoked for 3 years. Not only am I a free man today with zero new convictions, but I also got my license back. Very few atttorneys could have pulled off what he did, let alone for the bargain price he gave me. I highly recommend this man to anyone that finds themselves in trouble and needing legal representation. Out of all the attorneys Ive worked with over the years, it would be foolish to ever hire anybody but him.

My husband had a massive stroke at the age of 63 which was mis-diagnosed as a brain tumor. He could no longer work, we lost our home and we had to quickly downgrade into a smaller space. Donald Shapiro took our case and won a settlement for us which provided funds for my husband's care (he lived another fourteen years). I was able to buy a larger house, care for him while teaching at home for nine years and then pay for his last five years of care in a nursing facility. At eighty, I am still teaching and I have the security that when I do decide to retire, the funds are there for me so that I will not be a financial burden on any of our six children. Donald Shapiro saved my life.

Mr Mcardle was so pleasant and professional to work with. If you are looking for an attorney to get the job done. It's Tim Mcardle!!! Tim handled a delayed diagnosis in metastatic breast cancer medical malpractice case for me in 2010 and the case was settled in less than 3 years or so. he had gotten me a substantial amount from the Doctors involved in the case. A little bit about my case.. in 2007 I felt a lump in my left breast. I went to my GYNE to have it checked out. was then sent for a ultra sound .and the radiologist and GYNE said everything's fine nothing to worry about.. Went back to my GYNE numerous times throughout the next two years and my lump was never brought up again . until I had another appt in 2009 and then it was actually discovered. But by now it was a stage 4... it went from my breast to my pancreas... So after going through a Bi-lateral mastectomy .. whipple surgery removal of my spleen , and ovaries as well. And now til this day October 2013. going for Herceptin treatments 4 years later.. ever after my case has settled... By the way I'm doing great !!!! Cancer free for 3 years now!!!!!! Thank you Tim for making a horrible difficult time a little easier !!!!!!

I was hurt on the job and was just going to accept the offer they gave me, but after talking to Harris Elliot I realized he could do so much more for me. It was one of my best decisions as he got me a great deal and protected me incase of my injuring the same part of my body. Harris was a pleasure to work with, but because it would mean another workmans comp injury, I hope never to work with him again, but would not hesitate if necessary.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a personal injury lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer fights on your behalf if you’ve been injured physically, psychologically, economically or in reputation. This injury may be the result of neglect or malicious intent of another person, or it could be at the hands of a business, government or other entity. Personal injury lawyers specialize in tort law, which is the law of civil wrongs like car accidents, company wrongdoing, unlawful imprisonment and more.

To become qualified to be a personal injury lawyer in the United States, a person must earn a bachelor’s degree, followed by a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from a law school. Most states then require the person to pass the bar exam to become licensed to practice law. Unlike many attorneys who require a retainer, personal injury lawyers often work on contingency fees. This means that in lieu of payment upfront, they receive an agreed-upon percentage of the settlement in case of a win.

What should you look for in a personal injury lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer will advocate for your legal rights if you’ve been hurt in an accident at work or in daily life, have suffered from medical malpractice, or are struggling to have your insurance carrier cover your needs. It may be helpful to talk with two or three lawyers before selecting one. When looking for a personal injury lawyer, research their reviews and make sure former clients have had good experiences with them. Next, make sure the personal injury lawyer has experience and proven success winning cases similar to yours. Confirm that the lawyer is licensed to provide services in your state. When you find a qualified personal injury lawyer with whom you want to work, freely discuss payment and fees before any work begins. Most lawyers offer a free consultation to learn what your case is about and explain their rates. Personal injury attorneys typically receive a percentage of your settlement (called a contingency fee), so they are paid after the trial or case is complete. Keep in mind that some attorneys have fees that you must pay even if you don’t win your trial. It’s important to understand these details before work begins so you don’t have any unhappy surprises later. Lastly, it’s wise to choose a personal injury lawyer that you have confidence in and with whom you can communicate openly and honestly.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
