Kevin Conway Named One of the Top Ten Personal Injury Attorneys in Illinois
Date:3/24/2010

Recognized by peers in survey by Leading Lawyers Network Magazine

(Vocus) March 24, 2010 -- Kevin J. Conway, a nationally known trial lawyer whose work on catastrophic injury and asbestos-related litigation has brought justice, to families throughout the country, has been named one of the top ten personal injury attorneys in Illinois. That designation, in the December 2009 issue of Leading Lawyers Network magazine, carries special weight for Mr. Conway, his partners at Chicago-based Cooney & Conway, and their clients because it is based on surveys among fellow attorneys, who were asked which trial lawyers they would recommend to their own family and friends.

“It is great to be recognized for the work we do, protecting the rights of victims of catastrophic injury and asbestos related disease,” says Mr. Conway. “To be recognized by my peers -- who know exactly what it takes and what it means to lead these fights -- is especially rewarding, and humbling.”

A past president of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association and a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers -- which limits membership to just one-quarter of one percent of the nation’s trial attorneys -- Mr. Conway has tried and settled cases totalling several billion dollars. He has represented victims in cases of wrongful death, mass torts, aviation and construction accidents. Among them: a $200 million asbestos settlement -- the largest personal injury settlement in Illinois history.

Kevin is one of the country’s leading practitioners in the area of mesothelioma -- a form of cancer almost always caused by exposure to asbestos . He was lead trial counsel for 177 consolidated asbestos cases, which settled at trial. In addition, he was recognized in the book Fighting for Justice: Cases and Trial Lawyers That Made a Difference, written by Wesley Smith with a forward by Erin Brockovich.

Along with his partners, Mr. Conway has endowed a professorial chair in advocacy at his alma mater, Loyola University of Chicago School of Law. He has appeared as a guest commentator on personal injury law and civil cases for both national and local television, has testified at legislative hearings on proposed laws relating to mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases, and is a frequent speaker and author on the law.

“Helping clients obtain fairness and justice in the courtroom is essential to what we do.” says Mr. Conway. “But educating, policymakers and the public outside of the courtroom is also important as few are aware of the toxic substances and unsafe practices that have caused serious injuries to many American consumers and workers.”
