About our Chicago, IL: office

For more than 35 years, Johnson & Bell, Ltd.'s trial attorneys have offered premier defense representation throughout the Midwest and nationally. Founded in 1975, Johnson & Bell made its mark through landmark class-action cases such as the Beverly Hills Supper Club fire and the Bogalusa chemical spill. It's tried nearly 90% of the major catastrophic cases in the Chicago land area, and achieved numerous favorable verdicts for its clients in categories including health care, toxic tort, insurance and business litigation.

While Johnson & Bell's attorneys try among the most cases in Chicago's Cook County, the firm believes many legal difficulties can be avoided through risk-reduction measures and careful compliance with the law. Hence, our attorneys provide regular legal updates notifying clients of legislative and regulatory changes as they happen.

Johnson & Bell continually receives national recognition for its trial and appellate advocacy: American Lawyer's Corporate Counsel Magazine named the firm as one of the Top 100 Law Firms in client satisfaction and Martindale-Hubbell has awarded more than 30 of the firm's shareholders its top mark, an AV-rating. ALFA International, a global legal network, named it 2011 Firm of the Year. These, and countless other accolades, illustrate Johnson & Bell's quest to serve its clients.
