Summary

I was born and raised in Kankakee, Illinois and knew from a young age I wanted to be an attorney. Studying the constitution and history in grade school, I was drawn to the law and spent parts of my summer vacations watching trials in the Kankakee County Courthouse. After 16 years of practicing law in Chicago, l returned to my local roots and joined Spiros Law in 2015.

The personal satisfaction I have gained from helping injured persons and their families and a desire to help members of my own community and beyond, prompted me to bring my skills as an experienced courtroom lawyer back to Kankakee County, where I live with my wife and three children. I am based in our firm's Kankakee office, but proud to be part of the Spiros team serving clients from our offices in Champaign and Danville, Illinois as well.

My career has included 12 years (seven as a partner) at a national law firm in Chicago, where I handled a wide variety of complex litigation matters, including personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits. My cases have involved catastrophic occurrences including industrial accidents, electrocutions, auto/trucking accidents, fires, explosions, and building collapse.

My experience representing personal injury plaintiffs has included working with my former partner to successfully obtain a $5 million verdict for a 13-year-old girl who lost her parents and infant brother when they were killed in an accident with a tractor-trailer on a Georgia highway. This was believed to be the largest wrongful death verdict in Dalton County, Georgia at that time. I have also obtained favorable settlements for clients in cases involving a fatal helicopter crash and motor vehicle accidents.
