According to Gary, the purpose of our judicial system is to give every individual the right to seek justice when they or their loved ones are injured or harmed as a result of the negligence of others. Gary has dedicated his professional life to this pursuit of justice. The modern judicial system can be a complex maze to the layman, and a skilled and experienced professional is necessary to obtain full justice and maximum compensation for injuries. It is clear that the insurance industry continued to invest time and money to put up as many barriers as possible to deny regular people the full compensation that they are entitled to. Gary's dedication to fighting for justice and full compensation for people who have been harmed or injured is evident in everything he does. Gary's record of success for his clients exemplifies the skill, dedication and experience necessary to prevail in today’s modern legal system. Gary worked with a defense firm for a number of years before he switched to fight for the rights of people who have been injured or harmed. While working with the defense firm Gary represented the interests of a variety of clients in the areas of personal injury law, auto accidents, premises liability, construction, wrongful death, toxic tort, insurance coverage and medical malpractice cases at both the Circuit Court and Appellate Court levels in Illinois. While on the defense side Gary learned the tactics used by the insurance industry to limit the recoveries of everyday people. Gary is now able to use this knowledge and expertise to obtain maximum compensation and full justice for his clients.
