Description

Thanks for taking the time to read our Halt personal injury lawyer directory listing. My name is Barry Zlotowicz and I am a Chicago personal injury attorney and the founder of The Chicago Legal Group, based in Glenview, Illinois.  Our primary area of practice is personal injury law in and around the Chicago area, however we have taken a wide variety of Chicago personal injury and car accident cases all throughout the great state of Illinois.

Barry Zlotowicz Legal Origin Story

I obtained my initial law licensure in the state of California in 1993. Fresh out of law school I started out as an insurance defense lawyer defending clients at fault in car accident cases.  I found that this type of work did not fit my personality because I found myself wanting to defend the folks who were injured even though it wasn’t their fault.  I found out I preferred working for the people on the other side of the ledger, and thus, I became a plaintiff’s lawyer and have been one ever since.

Law Degrees & Education

I earned my Juris Doctorate degree from Pepperdine Law School tucked away in the hills north of Los Angeles California. I also graduated from the University of San Diego School of Law where I was able to earn a masters of law.  I pass the bar exam and have been licensed to practice law in the state of Illinois since moving to the north suburbs of Chicago back in the 1990’s.

Chicago Legal Group – Personal Injury Attorneys

At the Chicago Legal Group we love to be challenged which is why we take one a wide array of personal injury cases. We’ve taken cases ranging from motorcycle and automobile accidents, to medical malpractice cases. We also represent people who have been injured on the job, as well as any other type of personal injury one may incur from accidental falls to dog bites.  At the Chicago Legal Group we are associated through our work with several Chicago personal injury attorneys who practice in a wide range of areas of practice including business, divorce, DUI, criminal and real estate law and we would be happy to refer you to any of these capable individuals as you may have the need.  

I reside in a suburb north of Chicago called Glenview and have three lovely daughters.  As much as I enjoy spending time with them, the majority of my time is spent striving to assist my clients who have sustained a personal injury in Chicago due to the negligence of others. 

Chicago Legal Group Beliefs

Over the years we have developed a personal “Client Bill of Rights” at the Chicago Legal Group which we strictly adhere to as a premier Chicago personal injury lawyer.  I find building personal relationships as well as maintaining consistent communication is an integral part of effective legal representation.  This may be as simple as texting back and forth but I make every effort to communicate and be involved myself rather than passing my clients off on to an assistant or paralegal.

As the leader of the Chicago Legal Group It is part of my nature to be involved, and I do not take the responsibility of helping others lightly.  I spend a significant amount of my free time volunteering where and when I can with various organizations and nonprofits throughout the greater Chicago area.  I also enjoy staying physically fit and as an offshoot of my own efforts I have qualified as a part time personal trainer.  My other interests include sports, working out, history and politics.
