BACKGROUND: Bob Clifford is the founder of Clifford Law Offices, which concentrates its practice in helping victims of personal injury, medical malpractice, mass torts, consumer and health care fraud, product liability, and aviation and transportation disasters. Bob regularly handles complex damage cases and routinely receives multimillion dollar verdicts and settlements. One of Bob's most notable cases is the $29.6 million verdict for Rachel Barton, an internationally acclaimed violinist who was run over by a Metra train. In 2014, Bob was the lead negotiator in the $1.2 billion dollar settlement of numerous 9/11 property damage claims following the collapse of the Twin Towers in New York. Most recently, in March of 2015, Bob Clifford was lead counsel in a trial against Yellow Cab that resulted in a $25.9 million verdict on behalf of a lawyer who was injured in the back seat when the van crashed into a concrete barrier.

Bob Clifford is also an advocate for the consumer and has filed several class actions, holding companies accountable for their defective products and fraudulent business practices. His most recent is against Volkswagen in the highly publicized "clean" diesel engine scandal. In addition, Bob was recently selected as co-lead counsel in the defective Pella windows class action matter, as well as the Herbal Supplements class action, which claims certain store-brand brand supplements contain contaminants instead of herbal ingredients.
