Joshua S. Worell

Josh is an experienced trial lawyer who handles cases throughout the United States.   His breadth of success and experience include personal injury, construction defect, commercial and business disputes, premises liability, human rights, and product defect matters.  Mr. Worell prepares each of his cases to go to trial and win, no matter whether that is a managing a multi-million dollar catastrophic lawsuit, or defending a small business owner in court.  He handles every aspect of a lawsuit personally, counseling clients and working together to tell their story.  He represents contractors, board members, business owners, grocers, construction professionals, motorists, insurance companies, parents, and property owners. 

Josh is admitted in Illinois and Florida, as well as half a dozen federal jurisdictions.  He has handled cases from Puerto Rico to California, having defended hurricane trials in Miami, construction worker injuries in Chicago, and car crashes in California.  He won his most recent appeal in Illinois (Cosovic v. Skokie, 2022 IL App (1st) 000696-U) and continues to thoughtfully expand his practice. 

When he is not hard at work, Mr. Worell enjoys training for his next century bicycle ride and spending time with his school-aged daughter.
