The attorneys of Levin & Perconti are pleased to announce the firm secured more settlements over $500,000 than any other law firm in Illinois over the last year.
Having reached 58 of these top-dollar settlements between July 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019, the firm brought in more than $75 million for its clients and was also highlighted in Chicago Lawyer Magazine’s 2019 Settlement Survey as one of the top five law firms in the state for total settlements secured.
Each year, Chicago Lawyer and the Illinois Jury Verdict Reporter — a sister publication within Law Bulletin Media — examine top reported settlements. This year’s report is based on 634 Illinois settlements of $500,000 or more submitted to Jury Verdict Reporter.
Levin & Perconti partner Margaret Battersby Black was the lead attorney in 20 of these settlements.
Partners John Perconti and Michael Bonamarte secured the firm’s top overall settlement, a $10.5 million win for the family of 70-year old Doris Newberry after her death following a failure to diagnose and treat her lung cancer.
“The firm is proud of the results we’ve attained for all of our clients as they’ve sought justice for loved ones who’ve been injured or killed as a result of poor care,” says firm co-founder Steven Levin, who handled many of the cases covered in the survey. “Financial settlements help hold the responsible parties accountable for their actions and negligence.”
Overall, in the 12 months covered by the survey period, the firm, which includes partners Levin, Perconti, Bonamarte, Battersby Black, and Susan Novosad, secured $75,846,106 in settlements for its clients. The partners take a team approach to managing all the firm’s cases.
