In Practice Since 1975

"The complexity of law is growing. My experience as a skilled litigator and negotiator allows me the ability to act as an advocate without compromise to protect my clients."

As a premier legal practitioner, Attorney Gilbert represents over 37 years of experience in negotiating highly complex cases. His consistent and sustained record of success has prompted his peers to place him on the coveted Leading Lawyer and "Super Lawyer" lists of outstanding attorneys, representing the top five percent of personal injury attorneys in Illinois. He was also appointed to the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, a prestigious membership of highly accomplished trial attorneys represented by less than one percent of all lawyers in the United States.

With over $70 million in career settlements, his cases have included:

  • The Rosemont Horizon collapse
  • Jewel salmonella poisoning
  • Amtrak derailments
  • Airline crashes
  • Fox River Grove school bus disaster

Attorney Gilbert offers an exceptional level of legal representation for some of the more difficult cases, including trials and settlements through litigation, arbitration and mediation.
