Firm’s Partnership Expands to Eight Members With Work Continuing Even as Lawyers, Staff “Stay at Home”
Levin & Perconti is proud to welcome Andrew J. (“A.J.”) Thut as the firm’s newest partner.
Thut has been with the firm since 201 and earned his law degree from Loyola University Chicago School of Law. A.J. has successfully settled and tried to verdict a variety of cases, including a $2.77 million jury verdict in a nursing home fall case.
“We are proud to have A.J. as a partner and proud of the of the work he does for individuals and families,” said co-founding partner Steven M. Levin. “He’s been a talented and tenacious advocate throughout his career and, in this moment, when our work representing the elderly and vulnerable matters so much, he’s a vital leader inside and outside the firm.”
The firm, nationally known for its pioneering work on behalf of nursing home residents, handles a full range of personal injury cases. Thut brings the firm’s partnership to eight members.
“It is an honor to join the partnership at Levin & Perconti. I came to Levin & Perconti as a brand-new lawyer in 2013 because I felt this this was a firm that would allow me the opportunity to advance my career and become a well-rounded trial lawyer. It has been invaluable to learn from the senior partners, who are both fully committed to their clients and the mentorship of their young lawyers,” Thut said.
“A.J. is part of a rising generation of leadership at our firm,” remarked co-founder John Perconti. “Developing those young lawyers who could serve people with deep commitment and a passion for the work was an important part of our mission. Steve and I founded the firm not just as something to put our own names on, but with that idea of building something that would grow far beyond our own practices.”
The firm’s commitment to developing young lawyers has been a vital part of its culture and its success in that regard is borne out by a remarkable record of producing award-winning early-career lawyers, including eight honorees on the Chicago Lawyer “40 Under Forty” list over the last 10 years and six designated “Rising Stars” on the Illinois Super Lawyers list this year alone.
