Extensive Legal Experience
With A Personal Touch

The right combination for your legal concerns.

What Sets The

Law Office Of
James P. Leahy Apart?

One problem that many people have with the legal system is that it strives for impartial, impersonal results. I believe in personal service. I believe your injuries and the way you have been impacted by them deserves compensation.

When you work with me, you will get my complete attention to your case and my long experience resolving matters for people across northwestern Chicagoland.

Did You Get
Hurt At Work?

I protect the rights of people who have been hurt on the job, handling all matters related to workers’ compensation claims in Illinois. If you were injured in Illinois or injured elsewhere but employed in Illinois, I will act as your advocate with insurance companies and your employer, whether you have just applied for benefits or you need to appeal the denial of a claim. I also handle retaliatory discharge claims.


Were You Injured By
Another’s Negligence?

I represent individuals who have been injured because of the negligence or carelessness of others. I focus my personal injury practice on claims involving motor vehicle accidents, slips and falls, product liability and construction accidents.
