Recognized by industry peers as one of Illinois’ Super Lawyers and appearing on the National Law Journal Plaintiff’s Hot List for a $9.6 million settlement in Grant v. 69 W. Washington Mgmt. Co., et al. we have tried to verdict or settlement numerous multimillion dollar cases, including a $7.5 million verdict in Marshall v. Schwab and a $6.75 million settlement in Davis v. Viacom.

A $7.4 million verdict in a case against a national towing company and a $1,000,000 verdict arising out of a bar fight at the Excalibur Night Club.

Our client successes speak for themselves and demonstrate the ethical and never give up ethos we hold dear. We are always in your corner, no matter how big or small your fight is. No stone is left unturned when you become a client of Montgomery Law firm.

Practice Areas

Civil Rights

As a Law Firm, we are well versed in the area of Civil Rights, having recently dealt with numerous high profile cases against Law Enforcement Officers and their actions.

Our areas of focus have included police misconduct/excessive force, police shootings, jailed deaths and injuries, the denial of medical care and excessive force in prison.

We believe in proper access to justice as a fundamental right and not a privilege. We have a strong proven track record of fighting injustice and inequality and achieving a fair outcome for the victims.

We are committed to fighting hard for our clients as we recognize that a fair outcome is worth fighting for.

Dangerous and Defective Products

Personal injury compensation claims arising from a defective or dangerous product can encompass a wide range of issues. It can include anything from defective manufacturing, design and marketing of consumer products to pharmaceuticals and any other manufactured or packaged goods.

As compensation for personal injuries sustained from a defective product greatly depends on the extent of the injury, the recovery periods and the presence of any residual disability, we at Montgomery Law set out from the start to safeguard our client’s interests and ensure that settlements or damages received properly reflect the extent of our client’s injuries.

A defective or dangerous product can include:

  • Unsafe cars and other motor vehicles
  • Defective car components
  • Unsafe medical devices
  • Dangerous toys
  • Unsafe consumer and household products
  • Dangerous household appliances
  • Industrial machinery and equipment
  • Farm machinery and equipment

If you or a member of your family has been harmed by a defective or dangerous product you should firstly:

  • Preserve the product in question to the best of your abilities.
  • Keep safe any receipts or proof of purchase you may have.
  • Keep a note of the purchase details, where and when the item was purchased.

Then contact us immediately to see how we can help you.

Medical Malpractice

At Montgomery Law, we recognize that injuries sustained from medical malpractice can have significant emotional and financial consequences. As such, we ensure that as a victim of the medical malpractice, you will receive the best legal advice and guidance as we endeavor to make the process run as smoothly as possible.

We are interested in making a genuine difference to those who need help and who have been injured by the bad practices of others.

Although our main aim is to secure appropriate compensation, we also strive to obtain a proper explanation as to what occurred and to ultimately hold the doctor or hospital accountable for their actions.

Personal Injury and Wrongful Death

In our civil justice system, you have one shot at convincing a jury to compensate you for all of your losses. We strive to maximize that award in every case.

By choosing Montgomery Law to represent you, we promise that we will provide you with thoughtful, clear advice in a timely and cost effective matter. Whilst we aim to achieve practical solutions for our clients, we also strive to achieve the best possible outcome that will enhance the likelihood of our client’s claims and maximize the level of damages recoverable.

In providing this invaluable service to our clients, we as personal injury and wrongful death lawyers, also set out to ensure that institutional or corporate defendants change their bad practices so that other innocent individuals do not have to fall victim to them in the future. We feel that this is the best way we can contribute to the world to make it a safer place.

Road Traffic Accidents

An all-encompassing title, road traffic accidents or auto accidents can include anything from, but not limited to, truck accidents, car accidents and accidents involving public or private transportation.

Our special expertise in this area of the law means we bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to help achieve the best results for our clients. Combined with our hard work and passion for excellence we provide high quality legal advice.

We deliver a practical and client focused approach to negotiating settlements but in circumstances where agreement cannot be reached, we provide professional, supportive representation in Court that guides our clients through every step of the process.
