I would unequivocally recommend their services.

[The firm] was so helpful to us during such a difficult time.   When Mom had an accident and suffered a traumatic brain injury that required around the clock care, the emotions and medical bills were overwhelming.  They walked us through the process and were so responsive and answered our many questions with patience and promptness.  They made an overwhelming process so much easier.   I truly felt we had someone on our side aggressively looking out for our best interests, and appreciated the help so we could just focus on Mom knowing they were handling the case.  We were always updated and involved and were very satisfied with our case’s outcome.

Jury Trial | Insurance Claims | Bad Faith

WE WON A HUGE AWARD AGAINST AN EXTREMELY LARGE INSURANCE COMPANY, all thanks to Tony DeBlasio and his team at DeBlasio and Gower.  Tony DeBlasio is truly an AMAZING attorney. I honestly cannot say enough positive things about him, his partner and his staff in this short paragraph. They became like family to us during our case.  Tony DeBlasio is an excellent communicator, master strategist, tenacious, focused and always has a positive attitude.  He left no stone unturned with regard to our case. You would be making a big mistake by not retaining him and his team for your legal needs.   Tony DeBlasio took our case when no one else would.  He was not afraid to fight for the “little guy” when the insurance company denied our claim. All the staff at Tony DeBlasio’s office are very friendly, knowledgeable and extremely responsive. Our calls were answered right away or returned promptly.  Tony DeBlasio always had time for us and personally responded to our questions.  This is a 5 Star Law Office!

For over a year, we’ve happily engaged in business with [the firm]. As our corporate counsel, [they] have greatly exceeded our expectations. They have expertly litigated any case we have been involved in and have proved invaluable with their business legal consulting. It would be my pleasure to recommend their firm to any company or individual who is seeking a knowledgeable, fair, experienced, results oriented firm.

♦ Scott, Business Owner

Personal Injury | Concussion | Sports Injury | Brain Injury

I would like to express my deep gratitude in regards to your work on my (and my family’s) behalf.

I truly appreciate the amount of work and attention to detail that you provided as well as the professionalism and care you displayed in dealing with some of the sensitive issues that were certain to arise during the course of our case.

While I am extremely pleased with the results obtained, more important is that you took my situation seriously. Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of this incident was that nobody seemed to understand or care about the seriousness of my injuries, even to the point of ridiculing my reaction to the entire affair.

I will never forget the feeling that came over me upon reading just your initial demand letter.  I am sure for you this was no more than standard procedure, but to me it was gratifying and reassuring to know that someone was stepping up to fight on my behalf. I realize that may sound like something from a (bad) commercial, but I think it is important to share given how easy it is to become jaded and cynical from the day to day realities of professional life. Your work truly makes a difference in the life of your clients.

Rest assured, our family will always hold in high regard and speak well of your law firm. Once again thank you for all of your hard work and dedication.

In case I haven’t been clear enough, I highly recommend Tony for business or personal needs.

 ♦ Brad L., President

Trust & Estate Litigation | Not For Profit Charity

We engaged Tony DeBlasio to represent our interest in a disputed Trust settlement. We are a non-profit so our funds are limited and spent carefully. Tony did a tremendous job representing us and protecting our interest as the settlement was negotiated before the court in DuPage County, IL. We are in Philadelphia, so having legal representation in Illinois who we trusted was critical. We especially appreciated the wise counsel and the clear communication we received from Tony as the case was litigated to its final resolution.

♦ Dan S., Chief Financial Officer, Charity

♦ John G, National Representative, Religious Organization

Corporate Law | Contracts | Insurance

Tony performed business critical contract work for my firm; and did an outstanding job. I hired the DeBlasio Law Firm because historically, their experience has been in business litigation. As such, they are well practiced in learning and understanding the contract needs of a complex business in a short period of time; and at the same understanding the many issues that befall companies when contracts are not well designed. Tony’s ability to fully understand our business, communicate our needs back to us, and provide a solid contract for us; in the end, was painless. Tony and his associates are thoughtful in their approach, very fair in their pricing, and a pleasure to do business with. I will definitely use them again; and would recommend them for business litigation, contracts, and other legal needs.

♦ Gerard M., Caring Son of Elderly Client.

Personal Injury | Auto Accident | Neck Injury

What can I say about Tony, other than, amazing, outstanding, caring, hard working … I can go on and on. If you need an attorney who is in it for YOU, the client, this is your guy. Tony fought hard for me and my family to make sure that we received every penny that we were owed in our settlement. I think most guys would have thrown in the towel, but not him. He always kept us in the loop and gave his honest opinion and direction when we had to make decisions on how our case would be handled. He has a great support staff who are quick to respond to any questions you may have. I highly recommend Tony DeBlasio to anyone in need of an attorney to fight both fairly and aggressively on their behalf. You won’t be disappointed.

♦ Christine J.

Tony DeBlasio was very instrumental in helping us settle a significant litigation matter we found ourselves in the midst of.   Our Canadian subsidiary was unfamiliar with the laws and localizations in the mid-western United Stated and with all legal matters, uncertainly leads to anxiety and Tony was able to take control, manage our expectations, manage the matter very professionally and get us to a speedy and agreeable conclusion without costly litigation.  He was instrumental in letting us get back to business and taking the legal matters off our plate.  We had the confidence it was being handled in the professional manner, with our best interests as the #1 priority.

♦ David, Business Owner

Business Litigation | Partnership Disputes | Shareholder Disputes | Commercial Real Estate | Investigations

Tony, thank you for helping my mother and my family through our most difficult time. Your heartfelt sympathy, professionalism, and the legal insight were found to be invaluable.  When my father passed away unexpectedly and my mom lost all hope with his business partner, you were a beacon of light in our darkest times.  We were dealing with funeral arrangements, medical bills, and the overwhelming emotions involved in knowing my father’s legacy in his business was being diminished with each day. You walked us through the whole legal process and made it easy. You answered our questions, no matter how trivial (even on the weekend!), and took time out of your day to come to our home, rather than making us come to your office.  Now we can focus on healing and moving forward.  

♦ Dario Z., Business Owner

Fraudulent Transfers | Federal Court

Tony:  We wanted to thank you and your firm for serving as local counsel in the very contentious multi-million dollar fraudulent transfer case we had in federal court.  Your knowledge of local judges, rules and procedures saved us from spinning our wheels time and time again.  You were an integral part in achieving a very favorable settlement.  If we are ever in need of local counsel in Chicago, yours is the only number we will call.
