Elgin Attorney

Personal Injury, Family Law and Workers' Compensation

One problem that many people have with our legal system is that it tends be impersonal. At the Law Office of James P. Leahy in Elgin, Illinois, I believe in the value of personal service. As your lawyer, I will take the time to understand your case and the issues that are important to you.

My name is James P. Leahy. I bring more than 30 years of legal experience to individuals and families throughout the western and northwestern suburbs of Chicago in cases involving:

  • Workers' compensation: I protect the rights of people who have been hurt on the job, handling all matters related to workers' compensation claims. 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.
  • Personal injury: 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.
  • Family law: I work closely with men and women at all stages of a divorce or other family law matter, from the initial filing through requests for modification or enforcement of existing judgments. I handle divorce and paternity cases, including visitation, child support, alimony/spousal support and property settlements. I also represent individuals in domestic violence disputes.

I also assist clients in real estate transactions, estate planning, probate  and business formation.

When you come to my law office with a legal concern, you won't get lost in the shuffle as can happen in a large firm where cases are passed from lawyer to lawyer. I will be the attorney who handles your case from beginning to end, so you will know your lawyer and I will know you.
