Practice/Organization Description

Alexander Loftus has won a wide range of significant cases through mediation, arbitration, and trial including claims arising from breach of contract, fraud, construction, shareholder suits, malpractice, and employment. Alexander has handled appeals before the Seventh Circuit, Illinois Appellate Courts, Illinois Supreme Court, and United States Supreme Court.

Alexander works best “on his feet” having tried nearly twenty cases to verdict in state and federal courts in several states and argued dozens of dispositive motions from the Delaware Court of Chancery to Madison County, Illinois.

· A retired judge who mediated a complex trust case stated, “(Alexander’s) performance in the mediation was outstanding… He spun gold from straw”

· Opposing counsel (successful trial lawyer with over thirty years experience) said at the beginning of his closing argument "I would also like to personally thank Mr. Loftus. Alex, you are a true professional and a gentleman, and he knows more about trying a jury trial case in the State of Illinois than I will every know, so I appreciate your knowledge and expertise."

· A client in a dispute of $550,000 in estate assets wrote: “Alexander Loftus is an exceptional attorney. He recently represented me on a complex trust litigation matter and throughout, he was extremely thorough and insightful regarding all aspects of my case that would not have been resolved as quickly and effectively had it not been for Alexander's diligence and outstanding communication skills.”

· A breach of contract client whose case settled favorably despite facing a significant counterclaim wrote: “Alexander is a very detailed, highly educated attorney… he really takes the time to make sure everything is done correctly and within the law.”
