A Cook County jury awarded a record $148 million verdict to a young woman who was paralyzed in 2015. According to the Illinois Jury Verdict Reporter, at the time the jury returned its verdict, this was the highest personal injury compensatory verdict awarded to an individual in Illinois State History. This record-setting verdict was more than twice the previous compensatory record verdict in Illinois of $64 million.
“Many thanks for your great service. We know where to go if we ever need you again.”
“I was referred to Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard after my husband fell at a nursing home and broke his hip. Before my deposition, which was one of the hardest things I have ever done, my attorneys were so supportive and reassuring. The entire team at Salvi Law truly cares about their clients, which is a rarity in most businesses. I would absolutely recommend this firm to anyone in need of legal representation.”
“I turned to Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard after I was injured by a forklift at McCormick Place Convention Center. I live in Wisconsin and because of my injury, I was unable to travel to Chicago for meetings with my lawyers. But my attorneys always came to my house to help me get prepared for trial and other important parts of the case. They would always go the extra mile. The trial and subsequent appeal process were long and emotional, but my attorneys were there every step of the way to make sure I was a part of every important decision being made. I couldn’t have been happier with the result my lawyers were able to obtain for me and my family.”
“My legal team at Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard was exceptional and made me feel like family. They understood my situation and handled my case with expertise. My attorneys and the firm’s paralegals answered all my questions and emails immediately. I am so thankful for their help and was very satisfied with the outcome of my case. I would highly recommend this law firm!”
“My wife found Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard after a delay in my cancer diagnosis. Right away we knew it was the right place for us. My lawyers didn’t waste any time and immediately got to work on my case. They treated us with respect and were reassuring during the deposition process. I couldn’t believe the result my lawyers were able to obtain for my case. I would definitely recommend this law firm to anyone in need of outstanding, honest legal representation.”
“I was referred to Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard following my auto accident. The entire team made this very difficult time in my life better. Not only did they get me a fair settlement, they also cared about my personal welfare. They went above and beyond my case and worked to get the intersection where my accident happened improved to make it safer. Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard cares not only about your case but the community as well. I highly recommend this firm for their professionalism and knowledge!”
“Our 21-year-old son who stilled lived at home was killed by a drunk driver in November of 2012. In late December, another attorney we knew recommended we contact a personal injury lawyer to see what our rights were and file a wrongful death suite. I met with Patrick Salvi Sr., and right away I could see the compassion and care he had for what we were going through. No parent should ever bury their child. He told us all our options and that they would do everything they could to help us. We looked over all the papers and after a few days, I called Mr. Salvi and told him we would like to retain their firm to represent us.
Patrick Salvi II took over our case, and again after meeting with him I could see how much he really cared and wanted to help us. Our case was a bit different because our civil case against the drunk driver that killed our son could not move forward until the criminal case was completed. It took over two years to see justice served in the criminal case. During those two years I had to go to status hearings every month for the criminal case and several times someone for the firm would go to court with me for support and so I would not be alone.
Finally, we were ready to move forward with the civil case. Patrick Salvi II and his team did an outstanding job of keeping us informed and moving things along. Through the whole process, Patrick kept in touch and was always there for myself and my family if we had any questions and took all the time he needed to with us. I never felt we were just a number to him, but I felt he really cared and our case was a priority to him.
If you are looking for a law firm that truly cares and is not just interested in the money, but wants to bring peace and closure to you and what you are going through and will be honest and give you the best advice, even if it is not what you want to hear but it is best for you, then Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P.C., is the firm you need. I hope nothing happens where I would need them again, but if it does, I know right where I would go.”
“I was 17 when I was hit by a distracted driver. I am now 20 and have a decent life ahead of me thanks to Patrick Salvi Jr.
I couldn’t walk, I had tons of emotional problems and I couldn’t remember yesterday from tomorrow. Honestly, I had never been presented with a situation to use an attorney. I was a little afraid of how life would be for me afterwards… But I have a house, I have a car, I have managed to knock a few things off my bucket list thanks to Pat Salvi. And some of those fears have gone away, I am able to move forward and continue on with my life just because of that little push he was able to give… I am walking; he was able to help pay those bills.
He stayed in touch on my case. It was easy to trust him because he lead with trust. He is actually a really nice guy…. He is willing to try and work for your benefit. Without a doubt in my mind I would definitely recommend him.
If you are stuck with those problems by yourself, chances are you are not going to get far, but with an attorney like Salvi, you can keep on going the way you need to and maybe get a little jump ahead. I trust him with any case I would have. I feel like if I can trust him, others can as well.”

“When Elijah died on August 1, 2012, we knew something had gone terribly wrong. (We were referred) to David Pritchard. David was very supportive. We found him to be very kind, intelligent, honest and direct. We have appreciated that about each of the attorneys and staff members we were in contact with at your firm through 2015 when our case was settled.
The attorney we probably worked most closely with was Aaron Boeder. He encouraged us to follow the right paths, gather proper information as needed and trust in the process. We also found him to be very honest, direct, intelligent and kind. He paid attention to all the details that would help support our case. We were grateful to see he had an excellent balance of knowledge and skill when working with the other side as well.
David, Patrick Salvi II, and Aaron were with us on the day we met regarding the settlement. We both sat amazed as we watched the settlement talks that day. We greatly appreciated the depth of knowledge, the wealth of experience, and the fact that this was the team fighting for our son. We were, and are, certain we chose the perfect firm to handle our case and are very grateful for all the assistance and support we received through a very difficult time. No amount of money could bring our son back to us…. The financial settlement has helped us to adopt another child, again, not that our son could ever be replaced.
For helping all of that happen, we thank each member of your legal firm. We know all the behind the scenes people worked hard, and are grateful to them.”
