Biography of Mr. Barber

Mr. Barber has been trying cases to verdict in the Circuit Courts and the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission for over 33 years, including the Appellate and Supreme Court levels. He has tried every type of legal matter imaginable including an abundance of catastrophic personal injury and complex medical malpractice matters. Mr. Barber has given numerous seminars to his peers on the subjects of workers’ compensation practice, personal injury and medical malpractice. He stays up to date with the current law and changes to the Workers’ Compensation Act with his involvement in the Workers’ Compensation Lawyer’s Association, Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, Northwest Suburban Bar Association and with his continuing legal education participation. Mr. Barber also takes pride in representing those first responders who put their life on the line while protecting our communities. He has represented 1,000s of our brothers and sisters in law enforcement, fire fighting and emergency medical at a discounted rate. Mr. Barber has been invited to join the “Multi-Million Advocates Forum” and was named as an “Illinois Super Lawyer” based on his recoveries for his clients. He was named one of the “Top 100 Trial Lawyers” by the American Trial Lawyers Association and a “Top Attorney in Illinois” by Chicago Magazine.

The following cases are of high interest because of the complexity and novelty of the legal issues involved:

Powell v. Chicago & Northwestern – Mr. Powell, an executive for a fortune 500 clothing company, was catastrophically injured when he fell down the stairs of a Chicago & Northwestern train. Mr. Powell was extremely intoxicated at the time he fell. Mr. Barber was able to negotiate a settlement after the jury was empanelled that resulted in the highest settlement or verdict ever achieved in the Circuit Court of Cook County in Rolling Meadows.

Knockel v. Rockford Memorial Hospital – Mr. Barber successfully negotiated a settlement with the hospital after the plaintiff’s baby (born at 26 weeks gestation) died as a result of an incorrectly placed feeding line.

Dana v. Ayers – Both of Mr. Dana’s legs were broken when he was struck by the defendant’s automobile. The defendant blacked out behind the wheel as a result of a diabetic reaction. Mr. Barber was able to prove the defendant’s liability despite a strenuous “act of God” defense.

Wilson v. Chicago Northwestern- Ms. Wilson was struck and killed when she stepped in front of a Chicago & Northwestern commuter train. Mr Barber was able to prove the defendant’s liability even though Ms. Wilson crossed in front of the train while the warning bells were flashing. Mr. Barber was able to negotiate a settlement for Ms Wilson’s daughter.
