Justice for the Injured
We Are Top Illinois Personal Injury Lawyers

Passen Law Group is a boutique personal injury law firm by design. We take on a limited number of cases to give each case – and each client – the necessary attention and resources they deserve.

Our partners, Steve and Matt Passen, have been consistently recognized as two of the top trial attorneys in Illinois. However, they consider themselves people first, lawyers second. We believe that to best represent our clients, we must be able to see the world through their eyes – and therefore spend countless hours with them, in their home, with their family. Only then can we ensure our clients’ stories are told. This approach has resulted in record verdicts and settlements for our clients.

  • Serious Injury
  • Wrongful Death
