Patrick Rice's Extensive Experience

Mr. Rice conducts seminars on trial advocacy, civil law and tort law on a continual basis, including more than 50 presentations in the past 20 years. In addition, he has written numerous law journal articles on ethical representation of clients, personal injury litigation and trial advocacy. He is the past president of DuPage County Bar Association, the third largest bar association in Illinois, and is a past delegate to the state and American bars. Additionally, he was an adjunct professor of law.

Our approach to presenting an effective catastrophic injury claim is based on our knowledge that nothing in the law is black and white and things change from case to case. An effective trial attorney has to be aware of the changing courtroom and political environments. A strategy that worked 10 years ago, or even last month, may not be effective today. As the sympathies of personal injury trial judges and juries have changed, so has the way we develop and present successful catastrophic injury claims for our clients.
