Bradley N. Pollock has been successfully representing people hurt or killed by the wrongful conduct of others for more than twenty-five years. He has secured numerous record-setting financial recoveries for his clients both at trial and through settlement, which have been featured in the news. Brad began his legal career in 1995 working as an insurance defense attorney in Chicago. He then elected to switch sides taking his defense experience and using it for the benefit of his injured plaintiff clients. Since that time, Mr. Pollock has dedicated himself to obtaining justice for his clients and, at the same time, promoting change to prevent future unnecessary injury or loss of life.
Brad concentrates his legal practice in areas that include: wrongful death; catastrophic personal injury; traumatic brain injury; transportation/motor vehicle collisions; construction injuries; medical malpractice; products liability; premises liability; and nursing home neglect and abuse.
The Illinois Supreme Court has appointed Mr. Pollock, by order of the Court, to serve: (1) on its Supreme Court Character and Fitness Committee for the Second District of Illinois from 2010-2020 (acting as its Chair from 2013 to 2017); (2) on its Supreme Court Civil Jury Instruction Committee; and (3) as one of nine attorneys on the Attorney Registration & Disciplinary Commission (ARDC) Review Board.
