Clifford Law Offices was named one of the top personal injury firms in securing settlements in the last 12 months ending June 2021 in the Law Bulletin Publishing Company Annual Trial Lawyers Excellence Awards.
With nearly $97 million, lawyers at Clifford Law Offices obtained settlements of $500,000 or more in the last year in Cook County as well as the surrounding collar counties. Settlements that were obtained outside of this area, including the $57 million settlement against Amtrak for passengers involved in a 2017 Tacoma, Washington derailment and $52.5 million obtained late last year for eight young women who were injured in a circus tragedy, were not counted in this tally.
“I am proud of the work that our lawyers have accomplished under very difficult circumstances in a pandemic and civil trials being shut down the past year,” said Robert A. Clifford, founder and senior partner of the firm. “We never slowed down a bit and we continue to go full steam ahead as we make our way out of a situation that has impacted the way we live including the way we practice law. Nothing, though, has deterred our commitment to our clients or our work ethic.”
Clifford Law Offices has been among the top two law firms in obtaining settlement totals nearly every year that the Law Bulletin Publishing Company has been tallying these numbers for two decades. To see the short online award presentation, click here.
