Amber Konow represents clients in a wide range of personal injury matters, with a focus on cases involving abuse and neglect in nursing homes and medical malpractice.

Amber gained significant experience in medical malpractice cases in her work with a previous firm, where she advocated for victims of medical errors and their families. In all areas of her practice, she works diligently to seek justice for her clients. As a result, she has obtained multiple notable settlements on their behalf, including $1.7 million in a complex medical malpractice case, and $1 million and $750,000 in separate wrongful death and medical malpractice matters.

Amber understands how difficult it can be for clients to file a complaint after they or a loved one has been injured, and she prioritizes her clients’ needs and their overall wellbeing while guiding them through the litigation process.

A former volunteer for the Family Law & Domestic Violence Legal Clinic in Chicago, Amber brought this same sensitivity to helping the organization handle landlord-tenant disputes under the Violence Against Women Act and The Safe Homes Act. Amber assisted clients who needed to prematurely break their lease due to domestic violence incidents.

A native of Frankfort, Ill., Amber enjoys spending time with family and friends, playing golf and rock climbing. She joined Levin & Perconti as an associate attorney in 2020.

Testimonials
★★★★★
Margaret, Daisy and Bryan. This magnificent cohesive team led by Margaret represented us for my mom's nursing home wrongful death case. They were most patient and responded timely to many questions throughout the entire process. All demonstrated professionalism and extensive knowledge of case and state laws. Their in-depth investigative work uncovered details which were unknown to us and yet sadly confirmed our suspicions. We would recommend the Levin and Perconti Law firm and especially this team. Kathy and Ron

Our deepest appreciation to the law firm of Levin & Perconti, and in particular to Margaret Battersby Black, in the handling of the lawsuit we field n behalf of our sister who sustained life-threatening injuries as a nursing home resident. Margaret’s representation, guidance, and professionalism gave us the sense that we could put our trust in Levin & Perconti and the final outcome proved that to be true. D.G., Nursing Home Client

I want to send my heartfelt thanks to John Perconti and the Levin & Perconti staff in taking our case. Not only were they so professional but also so caring and thoughtful. It was very difficult going over the facts in our mother's case but they were so compassionate and understanding and allowed us to be with them every step of the way. We were able to sit in on the depositions and we were really able to see how hard they worked on our behalf. M.R.Z., nursing home client
