Levin & Perconti 2020: Recovering 74+ Million for Clients
Last year, the attorneys at Levin & Perconti obtained more than $74 million in total settlements for their clients, placing the firm among the top 5 in the state, as ranked by Jury Verdict Reporter in its 2020 Settlement Report.
“We are deeply proud to be recognized for our success in securing top-dollar settlements for our clients,” said Levin & Perconti partner Steven Levin. “This is how we hold accountable those who cause injury and suffering to others.”
The 2020 JVR Settlement Report ranks 118 Illinois firms with settlements of $500,000 or more recorded between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020. Of that elite group, Levin & Perconti had the largest number of settlements over a half-million dollars – 43 top-dollar settlements over the last year – and earned the 4th highest total settlement amount overall.

The firm has been repeatedly recognized among the top Illinois firms in obtaining settlement money for their clients and holds multiple Illinois state records for top verdicts and settlements in various categories, including the highest-ever jury verdict under the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act and the largest-ever settlement for an injured boat worker under the Jones Act.
