What to Look for in a Personal Injury Lawyer

Whether you have been involved in a car accident, slip and fall incident, or work-related accident, choosing a lawyer is one of the most important decisions you will make. With so much on the line, it’s important to choose the right one.

When you’re already dealing with physical pain, medical bills, and countless other burdens, finding a lawyer can be an intimidating, overwhelming task. Knowing what to look for and what questions to ask can help you select legal representation that maximizes your chance of obtaining a full and fair financial recovery.


Most people ask around to a few friends and family members before entrusting their car to a mechanic. After all, most of us depend on our vehicles to get us to work each day. Naturally, we want a professional with experience working on specific vehicle makes and models.

Surprisingly, many people don’t use the same level of care when choosing a personal injury lawyer. At Anesi Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen, Ltd. our attorneys have years of experience representing injury victims, and several of our lawyers have decades of trial experience under their belts. This experience translates directly to results. No attorney can guarantee you a specific outcome, but there is truly no substitute for solid experience in the courtroom and across the settlement table.


When you’re injured, you put your financial future in your lawyer’s hands. The damages you recover can’t ever put you back to where you were before the accident, but they can ease the burdens of health care costs and other expenses while you heal. Anesi Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen has been Chicago’s leading personal injury law firm for over half a century. We achieved this distinction because we are committed to fighting passionately for our clients – something we have done for more than 55 years.


When people seek us out after working with another lawyer, they frequently cite lack of communication as the reason for their frustration. In some cases, clients tell us they went weeks without speaking to their lawyer. We know that this isn’t a case or a file to you – it’s your life. We partner with our clients to achieve the best results possible in their case, and we keep them informed every step of the way.
