Krzak, who initially was named to 40 Under 40 in 2001, was named to the inaugural year of Hall of Famers this year.
Krzak began with the firm upon his graduation from DePaul Law School in 1997 and was named its youngest partner in 2004. He has worked on some of the most complex cases at the firm, including many of its aviation matters including the crash of a commercial jet heading to Buffalo, New York; the crash of a plane on the runway in Lexington, Kentucky; and the crash of a jet at Schipol Airport in Amsterdam. Most recently he held a press conference in Boston regarding the representation of seven of the eight young women who were injured in a “human chandelier” act while performing at the circus in Rhode Island.
“We are very proud of the hard work and commitment Mike demonstrates to his clients day in and day out,” said Robert A. Clifford, senior partner and founder of the firm. “Mike Krzak personifies the work and dedication of the lawyers at the firm, and he is most deserving of this award.”
Bradley Cosgrove, partner at the firm, was named to this year’s 40 Attorneys Under 40 to Watch” by the Law Bulletin Publishing Company.
