Who are the "Best" Chicago Medical Malpractice Attorneys? [infographic]

Choosing the best Chicago medical malpractice attorney is a subjective decision, but there are objective factors plaintiffs should consider. Attorneys are prohibited from claiming they are the best, but clients can determine whether an attorney has the particular skills, qualifications, and experience required to pursue their medical malpractice claim in Illinois.

Experience Counts

Start your search by examining the experience the attorney has under his or her belt. Look at the number of years the lawyer has represented medical malpractice claims as well as the types of cases handled. Consider experience with depositions and evidence collection as well as the number of cases taken to verdict. The "best" Chicago medical malpractice attorney for you is one who can show you a list of previous cases with similar factors to your own and explain how he or she would prepare and present the case to the court to reach a favorable verdict.

Going on the Record

When you want an attorney who knows how to win, it is a good idea to discuss the attorney's record of success. In particular, you'll need to decide whether the attorney has the ability to successfully represent your type of claim. This requires a mix of experience, knowledge, creativity, and dedication. Your attorney should be willing to discuss these factors with you during a consultation.

Reviewing the AVVO Rating

The AVVO rating lets potential clients know whether an attorney has a record of sanctions from the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Committee. The rating is a representation of the attorney's professional experience, recognition within the legal industry, and reputation of professional conduct. However, it is a rating that should be taken with a grain of salt as it is not a representation of quality or whether the attorney is qualified to handle your specific case.


A medical malpractice attorney in Chicago is not a "Lone Ranger," and the most effective attorneys in Chicago are those who have a solid team of staff including legal and medical experts backing them up. When you discuss qualifications and experience, be sure to ask about the experience and expertise of the people they work with to prepare and present claims to the court.
