Many people like to quote stories about the “ridiculous” lawsuits that occur in our country. They cite to various anecdotes that are oft-quoted as the undisputed truth. Only one problem, many “facts” cited about these cases are not the truth, or the stories listed, such as in the “Stella Awards”, are complete fabrications.
My name is Timothy J. Deffet. I am an Illinois attorney who focuses on personal injury and workers’ compensation cases in Illinois. I am an Illinois licensed attorney and a member of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association and the Illinois State Bar Association. I also am a Federal Trial Bar member in the Northern District of Illinois. This means I can try cases in federal and state court.
I practice law in the Chicagoland area and in many parts of the State of Illinois, including the counties of Cook, Lake, DuPage, Kane and Will, as well as the cities and towns of Chicago, Joliet, Aurora, Waukegan, Oak Park, Geneva, Des Plaines, Evanston, Mt. Prospect, Rolling Meadows and Wheaton. I also represent clients in the neighborhoods of the northern, western and southern parts of Chicago.
