Clifford Law Offices

Serious cases. Exceptional results. Clifford Law Offices, Chicago’s premier personal injury law firm, has been dedicated to serving the needs of clients in the Chicago area and throughout the nation for nearly four decades. The firm holds the gold standard for dedication to clients, impacting change in public policy, and recovering maximum compensation across a broad range of practice areas including aviation, transportation, medical malpractice, wrongful death, and product liability law.

Routinely ranked as one of the top Chicago law firms, Clifford Law Offices and their award-winning attorneys have hundreds of years of combined experience paired with access to the best resources, specialists, and litigation techniques in the industry including expert witnesses, state-of-the-art computer animation, accident reconstruction techniques, and three-dimensional modeling.

Much of the firm’s rise to prominence can be attributed to its attorneys’ willingness to accept the challenges and responsibilities inherent in complex litigation. Clifford Law Offices’ commitment to investing the time and support required to fully represent each case through the successive stages of investigation, preparation, and trial in the pursuit of just and reasonable compensation is apparent in the daily culture and presence of the firm. This passion and talent have led victims’ families from around the world to turn to Clifford Law Offices in their time of need.

The firm’s exceptional team of personal injury attorneys and their commitment to meeting challenging cases head-on has led to many notable and record-setting verdicts and settlements. Clifford Law Offices takes pride in its work to not only acquire financial reparations for clients but to also invoke changes in laws and legislation that impact the safety and security of the general public and consumers. Clifford Law Offices is the only firm in Chicago named by The National Law Journal as one of the 50 Elite Law Firms in the country as well as one of the Top 10 Litigation Boutiques in the country. In 2020, the firm was recognized as “Aviation Law Firm of the Year” by ALM and The National Trial Lawyers.

These skills and resources have influenced the firm’s success in representing victims and their families in nearly every major commercial airline crash in the U.S. in the last 40 years, leading to Clifford Law Offices being recognized as one of the nation’s premier aviation law firms. Robert A. Clifford, founder and senior partner at Clifford Law Offices, is currently serving as Lead Counsel in the pending litigation in federal district court in Chicago against Boeing for the 737 Max8 crash in Ethiopia in 2018. The firm’s team of expert aviation attorneys join Mr. Clifford in representing the families of more than 70 victims who lost loved ones in the Ethiopian Airlines crash that took 157 lives.
