Barry M. Zlotowicz, Esq.
Hello, and thank you for visiting my personal injury law firm website. My name is Barry Zlotowicz. I am a Chicago personal injury attorney based in Glenview, Illinois. As you’ve probably read on this site, I handle personal injury cases throughout the State of Illinois from down south in Mount Vernon all the way north to Zion.
I was first licensed in California in 1993, where I started out as an insurance defense lawyer – defending people who caused auto accidents. I didn’t care for it and found I was much better suited to working for people who were injured through no fault of their own. As such, I became a plaintiff’s lawyer and haven’t looked back since.
I obtained my law degree from Pepperdine Law School and got a Masters of Law from the University of San Diego School of Law. I’ve been licensed to practice law in Illinois since I moved here in the 1990’s.
10 stars if I could! I would recommend Barry to anyone who is looking for an excellent lawyer! I reached out to him for help after my car accident. The insurance company wanted thousands of dollars from me and by the time I was done the insurance company paid me to settle the case and dropped the claim against me. I couldn’t thank Barry enough for this amazing outcome!
Barry was so helpful and I didn't feel put out when ever I had any questions. He got back to me promptly and I never felt like I had to wait for an answer.
Barry handled my claim against State Farm when their insured's auto hit me from behind while I was cycling in a bike lane in Irvine, Ca. Barry was thorough, persistent, and achieved for me a very satisfactory result.
Barry was an absolute pleasure to work with after my accident. He made the process easy and answered any questions I had promptly. He took a personal interest and I felt he actually cared about me as a person.
Barry Z was absolutely phenomenal! Always kept me up to date and always made sure I was doing okay throughout this whole ordeal. I was injured in April of 2017 and received my settlement just under a year later. He’s very good at what he does.
As a Chicago personal injury attorney, the cases I work on range from automobile and motorcycle accidents to bicycle accidents, slip and falls and dog bite cases. I also work with several attorneys who practice business, divorce, DUI, criminal and real estate law. As such, if you need a referral to an excellent attorney in any of these areas, I can likely help.
I live in Glenview, Illinois where I enjoy hanging out with my three daughters. However, they spend more time with their friends than with me these days. As such, I spend most of my awake time working to represent my clients who have been harmed by the negligence of others.
My “Client Bill of Rights” is how I manage my practice. My clients come first. I build interpersonal relationships with my clients and maintain regular contact, often through simple techniques like texting back and forth. You will not always be passed on to a paralegal like other law firms do.
My primary other interests involve helping others. I’m dedicated to engaging in as much volunteer work as possible. I believe that this is why I am here – to help others. I am also a part-time personal trainer which I got into to improve my own health. I’m a big sports fan (primarily the Dallas Cowboys – sorry Bears fans), love playing fantasy football, working out, my daily Starbucks and discussing history and politics.
