Jeff Brown has more than twenty-five years of experience representing both Defendants and Plaintiffs in personal injury and commercial matters. Within the personal injury area, he has successfully represented claimants in medical malpractice actions, construction litigation, premises liability actions, nursing home matters, and automobile cases. Collectively, he has successfully tried many jury trials, bench trials, and arbitrations in Cook and DuPage County. In turn, Jeff has secured settlements for several of his clients that were in excess of one million dollars.
Jeff has also worked extensively on behalf of insurance companies defending claims against those that have been injured in personal injury and civil rights cases. By virtue of that experience, Jeff has obtained significant insight into the workings of insurance industry tactics and strategies when fighting legitimate claims for compensation.
Regardless of who he works for, Jeff’s approach to each case entrusted to him is always the same—to be the most knowledgeable and most prepared attorney in the courtroom. He then uses that knowledge and preparation to relentlessly advance the interests of his clients and does not stop until they have received the best possible outcome.
Jeff graduated from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts, with a B.A. in European Cultural History in 1982. He graduated with the distinction of having completed his undergraduate course work in just three and a half years.
Jeff later attended Loyola University School of Law in Chicago where he earned his J.D. in 1986 after working his way through law school. Shortly after being admitted to the Illinois Bar, Jeff met his qualifications to practice as a trial attorney in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.
Jeff is also a published poet and has been active as an actor in Chicago Theater for several years.
