Since graduating from Loyola Law School in Chicago in 2000, John Fitzpatrick has established a record of fighting aggressively and successfully for his clients in both civil and criminal court. At the conclusion of a recent personal injury trial, the jury returned a verdict in favor of his client that was more than seven times the last settlement offer made by the defendant’s insurance company and in excess of the defendant’s auto insurance policy limits. After this verdict, he was able to make the insurance company pay his client more money than the amount of coverage available under the defendant’s insurance policy. Mr. Fitzpatrick has obtained impressive jury verdicts for his clients in civil cases as well as not guilty verdicts and acquittals in criminal cases. He has recovered millions of dollars for his clients.
While in law school, Fitzpatrick worked as a clerk in the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office. He believes that a lawyer has an obligation to the community, part of which involves protecting the rights and liberties of individuals against corporate greed and undue encroachment from governmental authorities.
He is licensed to practice before the Illinois Bar and the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, where he is a member of the Federal Trial Bar. He is also a member of the Illinois State Bar Association, the Chicago Bar Association, the Public Investors Arbitration Bar Association, and the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association.
