Petrarca, Gleason, Boyle & Izzo, LLC is there for you when you need us most. We work with our clients to avoid or minimize the possibility of litigation against them.  But litigation is often inevitable, and all our attorneys have litigation experience representing our clients in both State and federal courts, and before administrative agencies, in a variety of matters and claims.  Based upon this experience, our firm has been approved to handle claims on behalf of many insurance cooperatives and insurance companies who provide coverage for our clients.

  • Personal Injury
  • Contract Liability

We represent our clients in administrative proceedings such as in student residency, suspension / expulsion, and special education proceedings as well as before Federal and State agencies such as:

  • Illinois Education Labor Relations Board (IELRB)
  • Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission (IWCC)

It is always our goal to provide practical advice and guidance to minimize risk and the chance of litigation.  Our experience in understanding the types of claims and how they will be presented by potential litigants against our clients is invaluable to our clients.  We do not seek to make decisions for clients.  Instead, we provide an outline of all options available and permit the client to seek the course of action which best meets its goals.
