Whether you have been injured in an accident or charged with a crime, your future is on the line, and you need—and deserve—a lawyer who will take your case as seriously as you do.

DuPage County Personal Injury Lawyer

In a split second, an accident can change the course of your life. Everything you know about your daily routine suddenly changes. Many accident victims end up missing weeks or months of work and face tremendous medical bills that are often not covered by insurance. Accident victims deserve better than this. The Fotopoulos Law Office handles a wide range of DuPage County personal injury cases on behalf of accident victims and their families, including those involving:

  • Car Accidents
  • Motorcycle wrecks
  • Truck crashes
  • Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect
  • Construction accidents
  • Workplace injuries
  • Wrongful death
  • Dangerous and defective products

Attorney Fotopoulos understands the difficulties you are going through in the wake of a serious accident and approaches every case with empathy and compassion while, at the same time, aggressively pursuing maximum compensation for his clients. The Fotopoulos Law Office takes personal injury cases on a contingency basis, meaning we will not bill you for our services unless and until we can recover compensation on your behalf.

A DuPage County Lawyer Handling Civil and Family Law Arbitration and Mediation

Arbitration and mediation are common ways to resolve disputes without the need for judicial intervention. While arbitration and mediation are similar in that they both involve a neutral third-party hearing both sides’ cases, arbitration results in a binding decision, whereas mediators propose solutions that the parties are free to reject.

Both arbitration and mediation can save time and money for both sides; however, it is important to understand the stakes involved and to be adequately prepared. Attorney Fotopoulos relies on the skills he honed as a former Cook County Circuit Court judge to help his clients come to workable solutions to difficult family law and civil cases.
