Practice/Organization Description

The rights, concerns and interests of our clients at Corboy & Demetrio are the core of our personal injury and wrongful death practice. Putting clients first has resulted in unparalleled and exceptional success - we have acquired more than $3 billion in settlements and verdicts, of which nearly 600 were in excess of $1 million.

Among our many other accomplishments, Corboy & Demetrio has ranked first in the Chicago Lawyer Settlement Survey for the highest settlements in Illinois eight out of the past sixteen years, leading all other firms, and have ranked in the top four positions for all sixteen years. All twelve partners and two associates are members of the Leading Lawyers Network, a peer reviewed selection which recognizes only the top 5% of all Illinois lawyers. In addition, all twelve partners have been selected by peer review to the Illinois Super Lawyers list and three of our young attorneys are Illinois Super Lawyer Rising Stars.

We are the only Chicago law firm to include four former Chicago Bar Association Presidents. We are also the only law firm to include four attorneys who have served as President of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association.

The firm was founded by nationally acclaimed Chicago trial lawyers Philip H. Corboy and Thomas A. Demetrio. Tom is hailed by the prestigious Lawdragon as the “powerhouse of aviation and medical negligence law. In the windy city, he’s the name for everything from medical malpractice claims to aviation disasters.” Lawdragon also said that Tom is “Chicago’s top trial lawyer who stands alone atop the Chicago trial bar for 100 million reasons, including the biggest injury verdict ever upheld by the Illinois Supreme Court.”

Philip Harnett Corboy, Jr., like Tom and their partner, David R. Barry, Jr., is a member of the invitation-only American College of Trial Lawyers, the country's pre-eminent organization of trial lawyers that limits its membership to the top 1% of all trial lawyers. Phil and Tom are also profiled in the invitation-only, peer selected list in the book, The Best Lawyers in America.

We are and always have been committed and dedicated to serving the community. Corboy and Demetrio has established and fund scholarships, fellowships and endowments at local and national mentoring programs, high schools, and universities, including all six Chicago law schools. Partners, associates and office staff serve on Boards, raise funds, tutor, and lend a hand wherever needed for a variety of charities and nonprofit organizations. Philip Harnett Corboy, Jr., is the immediate past-president of the Board of Directors for the Legal Assistance Foundation of Metropolitan Chicago. We partner with Cristo Rey Jesuit High School’s internship program, and in 2006, established a pro bono department, which helps the indigent and elderly with legal matters that affect their day-to-day quality of life.
