I am a shareholder with the law firm of Sandberg Law Office, P.C. in Chicago, Illinois where I litigate a wide variety of civil cases including medical malpractice, personal injury, and commercial cases, as well as criminal defense matters. I received Martindale-Hubbell’s “AV Preeminent” rating, which is the highest peer review rating in professional ethics and legal ability.
I represent clients in trials, arbitrations, and appeals in state and federal courts throughout the United States. I have first-chaired over 25 cases through to jury and bench verdicts, and has arbitrated over 80 cases in numerous forums, including the American Arbitration Association and the Cook County Mandatory Arbitration programs.
I have handled constitutional and appellate litigation in the Supreme Court of the United States, the Supreme Court of Illinois, and other courts throughout the country.
From 1999 to 2004, I was in private practice; from 2004 to 2007, I served as an Assistant States Attorney with the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office. Armed with this valuable experience, I returned to the private practice of law in 2007.
My skill as a trial lawyer have led me to a number of positions teaching both law students and attorneys. In addition to my active personal injury practice, I am an adjunct professor at Northwestern University School of Law, teaching trial advocacy. I previously taught legal writing skills at the John Marshall Law School. I have, also, served as an instructor with the National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA) and its deposition program. In November 2006,I was invited to and participated in NITA’s Pacific Teacher Training class on teaching advocacy skills in San Francisco, California. I was an instructor with the CBA College of Trial Advocacy and an instructor for the Federal Trial Bar Training Course on the art of expert examination at trial.
