For more than 35 years, Johnson & Bell, Ltd.'s trial attorneys have offered premier defense representation throughout the Midwest and nationally. Founded in 1975, Johnson & Bell made its mark through landmark class-action cases such as the Beverly Hills Supper Club fire and the Bogalusa chemical spill. It's tried nearly 90% of the major catastrophic cases in the Chicago land area, and achieved numerous favorable verdicts for its clients in categories including health care, toxic tort, insurance and business litigation.

While Johnson & Bell's attorneys try among the most cases in Chicago's Cook County, the firm believes many legal difficulties can be avoided through risk-reduction measures and careful compliance with the law. Hence, our attorneys provide regular legal updates notifying clients of legislative and regulatory changes as they happen.

Johnson & Bell continually receives national recognition for its trial and appellate advocacy: American Lawyer's Corporate Counsel Magazine named the firm as one of the Top 100 Law Firms in client satisfaction and Martindale-Hubbell has awarded more than 30 of the firm's shareholders its top mark, an AV-rating. ALFA International, a global legal network, named it 2011 Firm of the Year. These, and countless other accolades, illustrate Johnson & Bell's quest to serve its clients.

    Ms. Reid was an outstanding Atty. to work with. She continually kept me informed about the details of my case, and any changes happening in the proceedings. She genuinely cared about what happened to me and to my practice and I would highly recommend her.
