is a founding partner and chief litigator for the Law Office of Fedor Kozlov, P.C. With over ten years of experience as a practicing Illinois Attorney, Fedor is committed to bringing justice to suffering parties at any cost. His expertise in this field is informed by intimate insights into all stages of the damage claims process, from secretarial research to insurance adjustment to hard-hitting litigation. In a field where 90% of claims are settled before trial, Fedor consistently pushes for the best offer for all of his clients and has seen over 10 trials with a judge in the last 5 years alone. Most personal injury attorneys would consider this a risky investment. Fedor's success, however, has shown the value in persistence, both for himself and his clients. He has seen awards that approach $500K, simply due to his refusal to accept a meager settlement in the short term. Fedor even takes cases from other attorneys and brings them all the way to trial. His tenacity makes him a rare attorney in the field of personal injury.
