In the last few years, Willens & Baez has handled some cases that have received local and national media attention.
For instance, we were retained in the Costa Concordia disaster, a partial sinking of the Italian cruise ship. We were retained by a young man who was negligently set on fire while performing maintenance work at a popular Chinese restaurant in Kane County. We were recently hired by four pedestrians who were seriously injured (one killed) when they were struck by a drunk driver in Chicago, to name but a few.
People often ask me how my firm gets involved in high profile cases. After all, we don’t spend a fortune on marketing like some of our larger competitors do. We don’t “chase” cases like some of our more unscrupulous competitors do. Simply put, we treat each of our clients as we would want to be treated if we had a legal case. By providing the very best and most compassionate legal representation to real people, one client at a time, word gets out. That’s where a majority of our high-profile and non-high- profile cases comes from.
While I enjoy the spot light of high-profile cases, I take great pride that every case in our office is handled with top-notch care, whether it is a high-profile case, a million-dollar-plus case or not. I am personally involved in every case and no matter what growth our firm experiences, I intend to keep it that way.
