About the Firm

DeWald Law Group is a young and aggressive law firm dedicated to providing quality legal services in a cost-efficient manner. We treat our clients as partners by apprising them of all developments, promptly responding to their inquiries, serving their interests with the utmost trustworthiness and integrity, and working with them, as a team, to develop and execute common-sense strategies best suited to each individual case.

DeWald Law Group is a flourishing firm. Yet, despite growing success, we have remained sleek, streamlined and personal enough to devote a higher level of attention to the clients we serve. One visit to our offices and you will understand that collegiality and chemistry are not just familiar buzzwords. We genuinely respect and appreciate every member of our team, for their contributions to our collective achievement, as well as for their unique skills and attributes. What matters most is that every client of the firm and every victory is shared by all. We are a leader in the field of litigation, proud of the reputation we have earned for building  long-standing client relationships, for providing innovative legal representation and for delivering uncompromising service.

EXPERIENCED Our founding partner, a seasoned trial attorney with an  outstanding reputation in the legal community, has over 30 years of experience in the private sector. He has taken numerous verdicts, briefed and argued multiple appeals and achieved favorable results in arbitrations and mediations. In Illinois, as well as numerous other states, we have built a strong reputation for litigating jury and non-jury trials, arbitration and mediation. Through these litigation fora, our firm has gained deep expertise in federal and state procedures, evidentiary rules, background on local judges and “courthouse politics.” Based on the strength of this record, DeWald Law Group has been retained by U.S. corporations, insurers and out-of-state law firms to act as litigation counsel. These retentions have proven enormously successful in terms of case management and substantive results.

INNOVATIVE The attorneys of DeWald Law Group are diligent, dedicated, reliable and decisive professionals who develop litigation strategies carefully crafted to meet the challenges of each individual case. Employing versatility and flexibility, in and out of the courtroom, we develop unique solutions to solve complicated issues.

AGGRESSIVE The attorneys at DeWald Law Group are trial attorneys. We take an aggressive approach to every aspect of a case from discovery through trial. This approach sends a message to all adversaries that our clients are well-represented by a firm committed to success and that is ready, willing, and able to vigorously litigate, if necessary. This result-oriented plan of attack has proven effective time and time again.

A New Breed of Litigation Law Firm

DeWald Law Group is a new breed of law firm; neither a trendy boutique nor a traditional “bigger-is-better” legal behemoth. We run a smart, agile, cost-contained operation ready to take on today’s most complex cases. We cut to the chase, and quickly develop an early case analysis to formulate strategies to move forward to resolution – whether it be trial, arbitration, mediation and/or settlement. We use state-of-the-art technology to provide the highest quality legal services while supporting the practical business imperatives of our clients: to bring every matter to a swift, affordable and positive conclusion. We embrace the philosophy that only through an in-depth understanding of the client’s business and the ability to interpret its needs in the correct legal context, can we deliver an outcome that achieves the client’s goals. We’ve been told by our clients “You’re not like other law firms” and that our approach to litigation is ground-breaking, and sometimes unconventional.
