Firm Profile

Steven M. Levin and John J. Perconti established the law firm in 1992, and since then the firm has grown to employ nineteen Chicago personal injury attorneys. The law firm is headquartered in downtown Chicago but we are proud to serve clients throughout the state of Illinois.

With the help of our staff of veteran legal assistants and case support personnel, our lawyers can skillfully and expeditiously serve the needs of our clients from initial contact to settlement. We understand that most of our clients have never filed a lawsuit before and are probably unfamiliar with most aspects of the legal process. We also know that when clients call us they want us to explain all of their options. They also want quick and understandable answers to all of their case-related questions or concerns. Our unique case management processes focus on maintaining frequent communication with our clients and responding quickly whenever questions arise or important case milestones occur.

In addition to our attorneys and support staff, we maintain close working relationships with an established network of highly skilled and experienced investigators, physicians, nurses, and experts. These relationships give us access to the types of specialized knowledge and information so critical to the successful investigation and prosecution of personal injury and wrongful death cases.

Levin & Perconti's skilled litigation team has represented seriously injured clients and their families in all types of complex injury, wrongful death, malpractice and nursing home negligence lawsuits. We have recovered over $660 million in verdicts and settlements on their behalf and both our peers and adversaries know that we won't settle a client's lawsuit for less than fair compensation. These successful outcomes have helped us establish a national reputation for our work helping those who have been injured as a result of negligence.

In the specific area of medical malpractice, Levin & Perconti has achieved numerous notable victories in a wide variety of cases. These successes include but are not limited to matters involving:

  • Failure to recognize the signs and symptoms of a stroke
  • Shoulder dystocia injuries during birth
  • Cerebral palsy as a result of negligence during birth
  • Failure to diagnose or properly treat cancer
  • Failures involving prenatal HIV screening
  • Improper postpartum care
  • Defective drugs
  • Medication administration mistakes
  • Many other types of medical negligence

Levin & Perconti is widely regarded as a pioneer in litigating nursing home abuse and neglect lawsuits. Our founders were some of the first attorneys to handle nursing home cases for injured residents and we are recognized as one of the nation's leading firms in this highly specialized and relatively new area of law.

Our Chicago injury lawyers believe that all legitimate victims of negligence have the right to seek full, fair and adequate compensation for their suffering and loss. Achieving the best possible legal result for each one of our clients is the foremost goal of every member of our staff.

If you believe that you or a loved one may have a legitimate personal injury or wrongful death claim, we welcome the opportunity to review the details of your situation, discuss all of your options, and offer advice on the best course of action. There is absolutely NO FEE for a consultation, and no obligation of any kind.

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.

I want to thank you for what you did for my family, and for always being there for us. W.R., Medical Malpractice Client
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
