In the Words of Our Clients: Levin & Perconti Reviews and Testimonials

We've all seen the commercials for law firms specializing in nursing home cases. When the time comes to choose one, how do you know which one will fight for you or your loved one? I was fortunate that my friend, who happens to be a lawyer, recommended Levin and Perconti. She told me, "Everyone uses them."

Our attorney, Daisy Ayllon, walked us through some difficult moments with compassion and understanding. Jacqueline Neri, Daisy's assistant, was very helpful throughout the case. Jack Terran and Salma Lopez closed out our case in a way that my family could agree upon.

We were lucky we had a word of mouth recommendation, and now we can see why everyone uses Levin & Perconti.

- Sincerely, Laura D.

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.

They demonstrated compassion and supported us through a very emotional trial; all beyond our expectations.

A sincere thank you on behalf of our family and dear mom. Her story was told and not ignored. An additional thank you to rising star Abbey.

We would recommend the Levin and Perconti Law firm and especially this team.

- Kathy and Ron

We were referred to Susan Novosad by my mom's attorney when she was injured in a fall at a Chicago area hospital. All we wanted was to have my mom incur no expenses pursuant to her injury. Susan took over and put us on a cruise control as far as communication with the defendants and Medicare/Medicaid were concerned. A suitable settlement was reached. Everything was handled in a very professional manner with extremely personal and friendly attention. I would strongly recommend Counselor Novosad for thorough and complete representation with a congenial approach."

“Thank you so very much Ashley for everything you have done for my father. We greatly appreciate your commitment to those who cannot fend for themselves in facilities and situations where they can face harm. We are forever grateful.”

- Laura Fowler, nursing home client

Hi Mike,

I would like to thank you and your law firm so much for your dedication to my father's case. I have selected the best law firm and I appreciate the hard work and efforts you put into it. You are a terrific attorney and I thank you for your excellent representation.

- D.C., motor vehicle 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 filed on 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 and Perconti and the final outcome proved that to be true. We were able to reach settlement, with Margaret advising us all the way. We sincerely thank you all for your expertise in bringing this case to a mutually positive close, and we would highly recommend using Levin & Perconti to anyone who is looking for a quality law firm.

- 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. I feel that the law firm of Levin & Perconti is probably the best firm in the Chicago area and I would, from the bottom of my heart, recommend them to anyone who needs representation for themselves or for their loved ones.

I cannot thank them enough for all that they have done for our family.

- M.R.Z., nursing home client

Mr. Levin, Mr. Perconti, and the firm handled a medical malpractice suit for my family. During that time, my family and I suffered the loss of my mother. Mr. Levin and Mr. Perconti were more than just our lawyers. Words can’t really express our gratitude. My family and I will always be grateful for the compassion that they showed us. I want to thank you for what you did for my family, and for always being there for us.

- W.R., medical malpractice client

I’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you for your support throughout the course of my legal proceedings. I was fortunate to have your team for representation, and though the circumstances surrounding my case were unfortunate, it was a great experience working with your team. If there is ever an opportunity to offer a reference, please let me know. I will certainly keep you top of mind.

Dear Mike,

I want to tell you I was very pleased with the settlement amount and I am truly grateful to you and your staff for all of the work you put into achieving this outcome. At times I had doubts about this case making it, but you kept moving forward and followed through on everything. That reassured me a lot. I was also glad I had you in my mediation. Your experience paid dividends at the critical moments. Thanks so much again.

Former client

My brother and I are very thankful to you for the great job you did in our case. We also highly appreciate your mission as defenders of the dignity of people. Best wishes to you all.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your work. It has been a pleasure having you on my side. Thanks again!

- C.B, premises liability client

Steve, John and Margaret's strong determination and willingness to take each of their cases to trial has resulted in tremendous benefit to their clients. The defense bar is well aware that Levin & Perconti have the ability and resources to build the best possible team of experts and professionals for the benefit of their clients. The injured party and their families quickly realize that when they retain Levin and Perconti, one of the most recognized law firms in the country, they may relax and transfer their trust to them during one of the most difficult times of their lives. I have had the pleasure of working with Steve, John and Margaret on many cases. Whether it is a case worth tens of thousands of dollars or a multi-million dollar case, their passion for their client is sincere and unwavering.

I have found great comfort in knowing that I could turn to you, when necessary, to give voice to my struggles and identify practical steps for resolving them.

Thank you!

Dear Steve,

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for a very satisfying outcome to my recently settled case. I thank you for taking the case and the work you did on it. I really felt like I was in “good hands” with your firm. Everyone was professional and very capable.

I was very pleased to work with Mike Bonamarte, too. He was personable, always on top of things, and made me feel this case was important to him, too. He represented me well, especially at the mediation. I appreciated his work and his support during my deposition. Again, thank you for everything.

Former client

Thank you so much for everything! You guys have been so amazing throughout this whole process, so supportive and understanding! We can’t thank you enough!

- M.A., nursing home client


We are ending our journey, and nothing can express our appreciation for the work you and the firm put in to give justice to an old lady who did not deserve the treatment she received. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you and pray that god gives you and your firm the longevity to fight the injustice that people like us experience on too many occasions.

- C.S and M.S., nursing home clients

We cannot ever thank you enough for all you have done! No bull, you are the best thing that has happened to us in a year, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Our best to you always.

Dear Susan and Steven,

We just wanted to that you for your hard work over the past nine years. We are grateful for the settlement and the possibilities it will provide to [our sons] and hopefully someday to their children. Although they were so young when [their brother] died, their lives will be affected forever. It is our hope that they will keep their memories of [their brother] close and appreciate the opportunities that this settlement will provide. Thank you again for your perseverance and making these legal proceedings as easy on us as possible.

- B.F. and S.F., medical malpractice clients

Your firm recently completed representing me in a suit for the wrongful death of my Mother. The case was decided in my favor and I write to you to recognize the efforts of the attorney assigned to my case. In my opinion he was extremely resourceful and diligent in his efforts to identify witnesses and to solicit their testimony. He was very personable and made me feel as if he really care about my Mother and the wrong done to her. I was very comfortable with his demeanor and feel he represented us as well as could be done. He represented your firm extremely well. I would recommend your firm to anyone requiring representation.

- M.B., wrongful death client


I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for the work you did to achieve the settlement for my father's lawsuit. The money does not ease my grief nor the bitterness I have for the pain and suffering that my dad endured at the nursing home. Yet, even though we never received an apology from the nursing home, the settlement points out the wrong doing and hopefully they do a better job with their patients in the future.

- E.T., nursing home client

Susan's representation was outstanding in every category. While she consistently provided world class professionalism throughout our case, it was her compassion that exceeded our expectations. We felt she genuinely cared about us as a client and shared in our pain. We are grateful to her for that. We would highly recommend Susan to anyone looking for top tier representation.

- D.O., medical malpractice client

Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did for us. I can't find the words that would describe how thankful I am for you to work with us. God knows why he put you in our path. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

-M.A. and J.A., medical malpractice clients

Michael and Margaret-

Words cannot truly express my gratefulness for your excellent work on behalf of my mother's case. I am happy it was settled out of court. I remember my nervousness giving the deposition...Margaret made it easy by guiding me through the process.

Both of you have shown professionalism and compassion throughout this case. Should an opportunity arise in the future, I would highly recommend you to a good friend.

- R.C., nursing home client

I had a great experience working with John and the rest of the Levin and Perconti team. I was always made comfortable and they made themselves available to me at any and all times throughout this process! I was always kept abreast of what was happening with this lawsuit at every step and had faith in the Levin and Perconti team because they knew what they were doing.”

- T.W., client

After months of struggling with my mom's health, we contacted Levin & Perconti and was quickly a big part of our lives. He worked for two years collecting all the information needed to make a solid case against the doctor who altered my mother's life and our lives forever. From beginning to the end, they were always professional yet compassionate with us. He was never bothered by any questions we had, was extremely patient with my elderly mother and always showed a sincere passion toward helping us so my mother would be awarded enough money to live her life as comfortably as she could for the remainder of her life...The awarded money will not make my mother walk again but it will allow her to live the rest of her life as comfortable as possible. For that we are forever grateful to the team of Levin & Perconti.

- Family of a medical malpractice client

I write to say thank you to our attorney Susan Novosad. Her attention to our case has been deeply appreciated. Since the day she introduced herself, we felt as though she genuinely cared. We wanted someone to listen and I know we found the right person in Susan. She really “gets it” and has made our family feel protected and as though we have a champion fighting for us and with us. We don’t know how this painful journey will end but we do know that we owe a debt of gratitude to [name redacted] for recommending your law firm. We feel safe having your office as our ally and are grateful that you took a chance and gave us the benefit of the doubt when we asked for help.

We are extremely grateful!

- J.L, Downstate nursing home client

I just want to say thank you so very much for all you've done for us. Your hard work on this case has made it possible for my family to concentrate on the next chapter of our lives. It's so bittersweet that this is officially over. The fight you put up for a man you didn't even know is more than admirable in my eyes and it will never be forgotten. My old man was one tough guy and I can say this with 100% certainty, he would've been grateful for the hard work you put in.

- R.L., Nursing home client

Thank you and your firm for getting some restitution for my dad. That is all I wanted from the beginning.
