Since opening its doors more than 30 years ago, our law office has earned a reputation as one of the top firms in the Chicago area by offering the highest possible level of legal representation and advice.

Our Law Firm has offices in Chicago and Oak Lawn to serve different clients. The Oak Lawn office of Michael J. Brennan focuses on personal injury cases, including cases involving nursing home abuse and medical malpractice. The Chicago office handles criminal defense cases.



Car accidents, truck accidents, slip and fall cases, medical malpractice, and workplace accidents can all result in serious personal consequences beyond the immediate pain and suffering caused. If you have been injured in an accident, you need to contact an Oak Lawn personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.

After an accident, the injured party can obtain compensation for their financial losses, including medical bills and lost wages, by proving several elements of the case. You or your personal injury lawyer must be able to show the other person had a duty to prevent injury, violated that duty, and is legally liable. If those elements are provable, you can recover compensation. The same standards apply to a wrongful death lawsuit.

Our Oak Lawn personal injury lawyers will review your claim, analyze the legal issues involved, study the liability of the various parties involved, and make the strongest possible case for compensation. We offer similar support in wrongful death cases.

To make the best possible case when you seek compensation for an injury your personal injury attorney will take the lead to investigate the accident, obtain relevant records, find and interview witnesses, and assemble everything into the strongest possible case. Our office will negotiate with the insurance company to secure a fair settlement. If this proves impossible, we will go to court. We have decades of combined legal experience in personal injury cases to draw upon.

You are entitled to damages for mental anguish and emotional trauma as well as for financial losses. Do not sign away your rights by making a quick agreement with the responsible party or their insurance company. Our Chicago personal injury lawyers have helped residents of Oak Lawn and nearby communities recover monetary compensation in dozens of cases.

If you were seriously injured due to someone else’s negligence we encourage you to contact our Oak Lawn personal injury attorneys for a free consultation regarding your personal injury case. Your personal injury claim deserves the attention of an experienced personal injury lawyer.



Most people who contacted our Chicago office were arrested for the first time. Even if it is not the first time, being arrested can be stressful and confusing. During and after the arrest many 

things can happen that may hurt or help you going forward.

The lawyers at the law firm of Michael J. Brennan will get to work right after you call them. Do not underestimate the importance of having a skilled attorney on your side. You need an attorney who can understand the details of your case and explain things in plain English as well as:
