Matek & Mazar, L.L.C.
I have been practicing law for over 25 years. I concentrate in the representation of people who have been injured through the negligence or wrongul conduct of others. I have represented thousands of such people over the years. Some of the areas of personal injury in which I have obtained significant verdicts and settlements on behalf of clients have included auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, uninsured motorist claims, assault and battery, false arrest, malicious prosecution, police brutality, security guard misconduct, dram shop, landowner liability, food poisoning, dog bite, nursing home negligence, medical malpractice, attorney malpractice, and other areas. I was the first attorney to file a lawsuit after hundreds of people were sickened in the Salmonella outbreak at the Taste of Chicago in 2007. I also practice bankrutpcy law, assisting people who have suffered financial difficulties due to job loss, mortgage foreclosure, catastrophic medical bills or other misfortune. Additonally, I provide defense to people who have been sued by credit card companies, medical providers and other creditors. A number of my clients have stated that after I have represented them, they feel like they have a friend as well as an attorney. I strive to provide personalized attention to my clients while also providing the tough litigator they need in court.
