In the past two years, our firm has grown from two lawyers to five. Why? Because we want to continue to provide excellent service to our clients and to the clients referred to us by lawyers in other fields. When Pat Anderson approached us about joining our firm, the question I asked myself was if Pat could help us fulfill our promise to our clients. The answer was a resounding yes! Adding a game-changer like Pat Anderson fulfills our mission. Pat graduated No. 1 in his class at Loyola. He followed his academic excellence with a tremendously consistent succession of successful resolutions for clients. We welcome you to review his amazing track record and check out his biography on our website at At our law firm, nearly all of our cases will be set for trial. As a firm, we need to consistently grow to put together the best team of trial lawyers and staff to prepare our clients and evidence for trying cases. When I reviewed Pat’s decades of success, I knew he would be a great fit for us. Pat started with our firm in March, and he has already had a terrific effect on our office. This month, he assumed responsibility for two major trucking crash cases. I’ve known Pat for over a decade. Pat was part of the trial team, along with our firm, that tried a trucking case in Will County that set the record for the largest verdict in the county’s history. The case set a national precedent for holding logistics companies responsible for injuries caused by their agents. Pat Anderson was a big part of putting the evidence together in that case. Since that verdict, he has had a huge impact in a slew of cases. As a prolific writer, Pat has authored dozens of legal articles advocating for folks injured by the negligence or recklessness of others. I am looking forward to working with Pat to not only advocate for our clients but also to change laws that are unjust to consumers and the seriously injured. I am sure that Pat and I will be writing a book together this year. Pat is well respected by other lawyers and the judiciary. On a trial team, Pat is usually the lawyer who can cite the most recent precedent or case by memory to guide the courts in making the just decision. He is the go-to lawyer in our office when it comes to the cutting-edge legal issues that are often addressed in cases.

There’s no question Pat is a great lawyer. However, he is first and foremost a family man. When not advocating for his clients, Pat spends his time with his family. Pat and his wife, Karli, are the proud parents of their son, Oliver. We are grateful and proud to have you aboard, Pat! On a personal note, I know that the months ahead will be very difficult for our clients and for our partners in our community. We are here to serve you. We hope to reach out to you and assist others in our community in the coming months. Let us know how we can help you.
