Eric Kang joined Levin & Perconti as a law clerk in September 2017 and was hired as an associate attorney in November 2018. He graduated from DePaul University College of Law in May 2017.

As a law student, Eric was involved in the Student Bar Association, competed in the American Association for Justice National Mock Trial Competition, and in the Texas Young Lawyers Association as a member of the National Mock Trial Society. He volunteered as a law clerk at the DePaul’s Student Legal Services and was a student representative of the American Bar Association and the Chicago Bar Association. Eric earned the Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction’s CALI Award for Trial Advocacy.

Eric served as a law clerk for the Presiding Judge Raymond L. Jagielski of the 5th District Circuit Court of Cook County. He also worked as an intern for the U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General Corps (JAG). While there, he performed on-site investigations, interviewed eye-witnesses, and drafted material including litigation reports and an opening statement for a court-martial. During his JAG internship, Eric also assisted the San Diego State Attorney’s Office with pro se plea deals.

Once he attained his 711 license, Eric participated in DePaul’s Misdemeanor Clinic where he tried a DUI case. Eric decided on a career representing plaintiffs in medical malpractice cases because he wishes to provide families with a legal voice to help them through difficult situations.

Eric is a board member of the Young Professional Board at Deborah’s Place, Chicago’s largest and oldest assisted housing facility for homeless women.

Born and raised in the north suburbs of Chicago, Eric attended Loyola Academy High School. He earned his B.A. in Psychology at DePaul University in May 2011. In his spare time, Eric enjoys playing hockey, running, cycling and training for triathlons.

Testimonials

Levin and Perconti was always there when we needed them and very quick to answer any questions. We are happy to say that Ashley Herschberger was very professional, informative, kind, and prompt when it came to our case. She was always there if we had a concern or a question. We would recommend Ashley and the law firm, Levin and Perconti, to anyone else. We would also come back with another case of our own if ever needed. The Gonzalez Family

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
