Our History

A timeline of our Illinois injury and workers’ compensation law firm:


In 1955, Charles E. Anesi formed the Chicago law firm that would eventually become Anesi Ozmon. That firm focused its practice on the protection of the rights of injured workers, especially through the workers’ compensation laws of Illinois. During that same era of the mid-1950’s, Nat P. Ozmon and Richard A. Lewin formed the firm of Ozmon & Lewin. Their firm concentrated on jury trials in personal injury claims. Nat Ozmon was recognized as a pioneer of personal injury trial law.


In 1964, these two law firms merged in a strategic combination that greatly benefited their injured clients by providing a more comprehensive scope of services and broader protection of their rights.


In 1978, the firm became known as Anesi Ozmon & Lewin, Ltd. At the same time, Curt N. Rodin and Noel C. Lindenmuth, both of whom had been associated with the firm since they were law students, became partners.


In 1985, with the passing of Richard Lewin, the name of the firm was changed to Anesi Ozmon & Rodin, Ltd.


In 1997, the firm became Anesi Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen Ltd., reflecting the recognition and excellence of the firm’s second-generation leaders.


At present, the next generation of firm leaders, Mark Novak, Doug Colby, Steven A. Berman, Jeffrey M. Alter, Brian D. Teven, David Figlioli, and Scott Sands join firm president, John M. Popelka, in advocating the firm’s tradition of aggressive representation and excellence in trial work.

  • This is an outstanding firm. I had two cases running in unison. All the attornies worked together and stayed on top of your case. They take the time to explain the step-by-step processes and show great patience and understanding. They are very well known and respected in the courtrooms, which helps us the client tremendously…
