Chicago, IL Personal Injury Lawyers Committed to Advocating for Your Rights
If you’re seeking justice for your injury or suffering due to the negligence of another — whether a doctor, specialist or hospital worker — you’re not alone. Your first priority should be focusing on yourself and your loved ones while you work toward healing and recovery, not navigating a complicated legal process.
JJS is a trusted ally who cares about your case and advocates for your legal rights when you need it most. For decades, our nationally recognized team has represented injured individuals and their families with compassionate legal assistance. Our dedicated attorneys have sought justice for personal injury victims in the toughest and most sensitive cases, including:
When medical errors made during the labor and delivery process cause permanent injury to an infant, both the child and family are affected for a lifetime.

At JJS, we understand just how devastating a CP diagnosis can be — particularly when it was entirely preventable.

We’ll stand up for your family so you can focus on caring for your child.
As of January 2020, the state of Illinois has abolished the statute of limitations for prosecuting criminal sexual assault, aggravated criminal sexual assault and aggravated criminal sexual abuse. Still, as experienced sexual abuse lawyers, we know that reporting issues of sexual abuse can be terrifying. But you don’t have to suffer alone. JJS can be your trusted confidant and will advocate for your rights, protection and compensation.
As devastating as any sexual abuse case is, pursuing action against a religious organization can be especially traumatic, particularly when multiple parties have conspired to keep the abuse a secret. Our team has triumphed over many sexual predators — including groundbreaking cases involving the Catholic Church. We uphold the rights of children and adults who have suffered at the hands of clergy abusers, and we’ll do the same for you.
If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of negligence or carelessness by a medical professional, it is your right to receive compensation. The Chicago, IL medical malpractice lawyers at JJS have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of families who have been victims of medical negligence.
New legislation has made it possible for not just veterans but also active military and their families harmed by military medical providers to sue for their injuries and losses. Our team of expert malpractice lawyers are leading the charge in these cases, holding practitioners and the armed forces responsible for any negligence. Let us be the support you need during this difficult time.
