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 many people have with the legal system is that it strives for impartial, impersonal results. I believe in personal service – and I believe that you deserve compensation for your injuries and all the ways your life has been impacted by them.

When you work with me, your case will get my complete attention. I have significant 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 be your advocate with insurance companies and your employer, whether you have just applied for benefits or you need to appeal a denied claim. I also handle retaliatory discharge claims.


Were You Injured
In An Accident?

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