The attorneys at Smith LaCien LLP have a lengthy track record of achieving exceptional results for clients, with more than $2 billion in verdicts and settlements and some 100 cases with results of at least $1 million.


What Does Justice Look Like To You?

Your life has been shattered because of an injury or the death of a family member. None of this was your fault, yet you’re the one left to put the pieces back together – to find and pay for good medical care, to pay bills despite missing work and to move forward against serious odds. You have the right to demand justice, but what does that look like for you?

At Smith LaCien LLP, in Chicago, we get justice by holding negligent parties accountable and getting top-dollar compensation for accident victims. Every single day, we go up against powerful insurance companies, big businesses, medical institutions and other parties that have caused harm due to their careless actions. In the process, we have recovered more than $2 billion in compensation for people like you. We believe that’s what justice looks like.
