Mr. Clewis founded the firm in 2007 with the mission of providing clients with relentless advocacy, seamless communication, and the highest level of personal attention and respect. With a passion for service, Mr. Clewis has committed himself to designing a law practice that ensures that every legal matter is exclusively handled by one highly experienced attorney. “There is nothing more frustrating than to have a group of lawyers with varying levels of experience touching your file, to have phone calls go unreturned, and to receive conflicting information about your case,” said Clewis. “Clients deserve meaningful results that make a difference in their lives. In my opinion, these results can only be achieved through continuity in representation, aggressive advocacy, open channels of communication, and a relationship with their attorney that affirms their dignity. “That’s the quality of service we proudly provide, and in my experience, the type of service that distinguishes us from others.”
A highly experienced litigator, and former member of the Board of Managers of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, Mr. Clewis has successfully prosecuted a wide variety complex personal injury and wrongful death matters, including lawsuits and claims involving defectively designed products, medical malpractice, construction accidents, nursing home neglect, motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle collisions, trucking accidents, pedestrian accidents, negligent security cases, municipal misconduct, police misconduct, falls on dangerous property, work injuries, sexual assault cases, and related matters.
I was seriously injured by a factory machine at work. Scott was amazingly aggressive, detailed, and conscientious. Through persistence, he proved the factory machine was unreasonably dangerous. The outcome absolutely changed my life in so many positive ways.
The moment I met him, I knew Scott was the lawyer for us. Professional, aggressive, confident, courteous, and meticulous. I couldn’t believe how hard he fought to win the case. We were so impressed by his skill and work ethic, and couldn’t be happier with the result. My wife and I always say that in someone else’s hands, we would have been lucky to get a quarter of that amount.”
When our journey ended professionally, Scott became a family friend. He is truly that rare attorney, so passionate about his work, and so aggressive when battling the opponent. He also showed such a sensitive side and really related to our loss. He was remarkable to watch.
Three words describe Scott: dignified, aggressive, determined. After watching him work for two years, he is the first person I’d call when in need, and the last person I’d ever hope to face in a courtroom.
The professionalism that I encountered was amazing. His firm handled everything. Scott was so diligent in following-up and pushed so hard to resolve my case. I hired him because he came so highly recommended, but he still surpassed my highest expectations.
A car collided with my motorcycle, and I was being blamed. Scott never gave up on my case and won the maximum amount of the policy limits. I strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional with unmatched skill, class, and precision.
