     Looking for an experienced Trial Lawyer to handle your personal injury case? You've come to the right place !


    Robert J. Dargis has been an attorney for over 30 years, earning his law degree from Loyola University of Chicago in 1982. Having received a gunshot wound while stationed on the DMZ in Korea, and after suffering a broken neck in a motorcycle accident, he has a unique perspective and understanding when it comes time to present a client's injuries to a jury.  Jurors don't just hear about those injuries - they feel them.

     His legal experience includes cases in Chicago Area Courts involving Automobile and Motorcycle accidents, Product Liability, Medical Malpractice, Construction Negligence, Premises Liability, Workman’s Compensation, Wrongful Death and Survival Actions, Nursing Home Negligence, Municipal Liability, and Claims involving Insurance “Bad Faith” refusal to settle. 


     A true Veteran of the courtroom, he has over 60 trials, the vast majority of which were injury cases tried before a jury. He has also successfully brought or defended appeals in more than 30 cases, including cases before the Illinois Supreme Court and the Federal 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.


     After an extensive evaluation by the Chicago Bar Association for the position of Associate Judge in the Circuit Court of Cook County, the Chicago Bar Association Judicial Evaluation Committee stated of Mr. Dargis:


The candidate has extensive trial experience and is well regarded for his fine demeanor, legal ability and temperament. He is a worthy candidate to serve in the Judiciary”.


See what his clients have to say about him in the testimonial section and review the results he has obtained for his clients in the case results section.

Being a Vietnam era veteran, Mr. Dargis understands what it means to serve your country and what many veterans have been through.  He therefore offers a reduced fee for members on active duty, veterans, and members of their immediate family.
