Personal Statement

I first started practicing law in 1986. In the years that followed I worked at three of the largest personal injury firms in Chicago. We went to trial on the hardest cases and won record-breaking verdicts on behalf of our clients. I could have been satisfied with what I was doing, but I always wanted to open my own law firm. In 1994 I knew it was the right time to launch The Law Offices of Jeffrey M. Shancer. It’s been over 27 years since I made that decision, and it has been one of the best decisions of my life.

My goal has always been to offer personal, customized representation to each of my clients. No one has to go through a morass of firm bureaucracy in order to learn the status of a case. My clients consistently say that one of the best things about working with me is their confidence that I know their case inside and out and that there is no question I am always doing everything possible to maximize the resulting settlement or verdict on their behalf. On a personal level, I believe there is nothing more important than individualized representation, and I am proud to offer this to each and every client.
