Since 1924, the Horwitz family of distinguished Chicago trial attorneys has continued a tradition begun by grandfather, Jacob W. Horwitz, and then his son Andrew J. Horwitz, representing individuals corporate wrongdoers and insurance companies who routinely take advantage of those who have been injured. Clifford and Mitchell Horwitz are third generation trial lawyers who continue that tradition. Our firm has never represented corporate interests and never will.
Clifford Horwitz has won every case he’s taken to trial in the past 24 years, with over 25% of his victories representing record-setting jury verdicts. Mitchell Horwitz leads the workers’ compensation team and was recently named one of the Top 10 Workers’ Compensation Lawyers in Illinois in a survey of his peers conducted by Leading Lawyers. Worker’s compensation attorneys, like Marc Perper and Mark Weissburg are vital components to the success we have established as Illinois and Chicago workers’ compensation attorneys.
Hundreds, if not thousands, of working men and women in Illinois will benefit from Marc Perper’s work. Marc convinced the Illinois Supreme Court to reverse an unfavorable appellate court decision in 2010. The Supreme Court agreed with Marc that when an employer fires an individual while the person is on temporary light duty, regardless of whether the firing is for “cause” – the employer must reinstate weekly disability benefits. Injured workers are obviously extremely vulnerable when they lose weekly disability benefits because their daily existence depends upon it. The decision of the Supreme Court of Illinois will help thousands of these injured workers. seful tips.
