Jaime Koziol Delaney


Jaime Koziol Delaney is one of Chicago’s rising medical malpractice lawyers and has played a key role in hundreds of nursing home and medical malpractice cases at the firm. She joined Levin & Perconti in 2012, and was promoted to partner in February 2020.

Jaime has substantial trial experience, and has secured many notable six and seven-figure settlements in nursing home cases involving falls and pressure sores, medical malpractice cases and birth injury cases. Over the course of her legal career, she has received verdicts and settlements totaling over $100 million.

As a young mom, one of Jaime’s passions is seeking justice on behalf of clients who suffer injuries during childbirth. In 2019, Jaime obtained a $14 million settlement on behalf of a baby girl who was brain damaged at birth when an emergent c-section was not performed when her mother arrived at the hospital in distress.

Jaime is committed to reaching the best results for each of her clients, and realizes that most victims and families have never been involved in a lawsuit. Therefore, Jaime understands the importance of frequent communication with her clients and makes a point to reach out to them during each step of the litigation process. According to Jaime, “When working with clients, I strive to always be accessible to them, and always available to answer their questions and address their concerns.”

In 2016, Jaime was named one of the 40 Lawyers Under 40 in the State of Illinois. This award is given to 40 outstanding attorneys throughout the state for their achievements on behalf of their clients, their communities and the legal profession.
