We Help People
Corboy & Demetrio began in 1952 with one clear vision and focus – to help people. And ever since, we have helped victims injured or killed by the negligence of others whether in an airplane, car or railroad crash, through a failed or defective product, as a result of medical malpractice or any other catastrophic event.
That vision and focus has resulted in exceptional results for our clients. We have acquired more than $3 billion in settlements and verdicts of which nearly 600 have been in excess of $1 million.
The Chicago Lawyer Settlement Survey has ranked us first for the highest settlements in Illinois eight out of the past eighteen years, leading all other Illinois law firms. We have ranked in the top four positions for all eighteen years.
We have gone up against some of the most powerful corporations, pharmaceutical companies, insurance firms, manufacturers, hospitals and transportation conglomerates in the nation. And we have been successful in obtaining fair and full compensation for our clients.
Our firm’s co-founder, Philip H. Corboy, called “the Jack Nicklaus of trial lawyers” by the Chicago Tribune and a “legal giant” by the Chicago Sun-Times, passed away on June 12, 2012 at the age of 87. We’ve dedicated a special In Memoriam page to honor Mr. Corboy.
