Winning cases for our clients is our goal, but we take the most satisfaction from the gratitude we receive from our clients.
Hello my name is Wyvetta and I currently have a case with Ankin Law. There are alot of things that I didn’t understand, until I spoke to a receptionist by the first Trena. These are some very hard times for me…and as busy as she may have been, she took time out to help me get a better understanding. Even though my case is still currently active, I’m very glad that I picked Ankin Law…..and that Scott Goldstein is my attorney. Thanks again Ms.Trena.
Derek Lax represented me in a workmens compensation case. Where I required surgery for my injuries and physical therapy. Needless to say, Derek is a tough, transparent, and had my best interest in mine. I returned to work, all medical bills paid by my employer, and awarded a excellent settlement for my pain and suffering, and loss of work wages from my injuries. So, if your employer refuses to act. Get on the phone call Akin Law, and ask for Derek Lax.
Big thank you to Attorney Joshua Rodolfi and his amazing assistant Cassandra!! Wow when the settlement negotiations start they are lightning fast. Always answered every question promptly and i would highly recommend them! Excellent Attorny and assistant, Excellent Law Firm !!!

I am a current client , my attorney name is Jonel Metaj, I was with two other law offices before I decided to be represented by Ankin firm , my case was assigned to Jonel Metaj . The Reason I left the other firms they were not consistent they were not returning phone calls they were not active with informing me or moving forward with my case. I wasn’t receiving Workmen’s Compensation. for several months so I decided to move my case to with Ankin Law .The Best decision I’ve ever made my attorney jumped right into making my Workmen’s Compensation active again he responded to calls and emails there was no long periods without answers .I receive paperwork he file in my behalf , Jonel keeps me informed every step of the way He’s differently an attorney who has MY BEST INTEREST . I stated earlier that my case was with two other firm before I had to release them for not acting on my best interest . So I have firsthand. Experience of attorneys where your just another case , I’ve heard the horror stories if others, about their attorneys. I am really grateful to have Jonel as my attorney Jonel is definitely a great asset to this firm it for me I’m not a case to him I’m actually a person
The Ankin Law Team was Great! They worked for and with me to reach an agreement that would best fit my needs. I was kept informed on all proceeds during the case. I would like to give a Special Thanks to Maria Merman for doing an outstanding job on my behalf.
It was a pleasure working with you all. Thank you!
Ankin Law represented my case for a workmans comp claim. My attorney was Scott Goldstein he did a great job! He really fought for my case and was a true professional. He really kicked some ass in my case. Thank you for listening to me and your dedication to being a great attorney.

I was very happy to be referred to Ankin Law Firm by a friend who knows the team well. I was counseled by Scott Goldstein who was one of the attorneys on the Ankin law team. Scott was very helpful and personable. He was very sincere and offered to help me in the best way possible. He listened to my situation and gave great advice. He referred me to another attorney who could actually help me. So far things are going well. Thank you Scott!

I had the misfortune of being assaulted repeatedly as a public school teacher in Chicago. Scott Goldstein went the extra mile for me to file a claim for Workers’ Compensation. This case encountered many unforeseeable obsticles that he solved and eventually I was awarded a Settlement. I am definitely very pleased with the outcome and his utmost professionalism in this matter.

Scott is great! Sometimes it’s hard to reach him personally, but his assistant always well informed me and answers all questions.
I’ll always recommend.

I sustained an injury in May 2017. Believing in the “system” I did not contact a lawyer, thinking I would be fairly treated by the multiple insurance entities that “were to got involved”. I contacted Mr. Ankin now, after almost 6 months have gone by. He explained openly and honestly I should have not hesitated in contacting a lawyer immediately. However, now that so much time has passed it would not be to my advantage to hire him.
I will keep his name and number and if I ever have a need again will engage Mr. Ankin and his law firm immediately. Rare to find honest words !
They were open and honest and they were very helpful if they can’t help you they will point you in the right direction to somebody who can all they want to do is help
Scott Goldstein and the Ankin law firm are top notch when trying to fight for your rights and very professional while doing it I encourage anyone with a work comp injury to contact them good luck to Scott & the staff at ankin law
Just closed on my case, Scott is amazing! Although it’s hard to reach him personally, his assistant always made sure I was well informed. Great dual. Great firm. I’ll always recommend.
My entire family was in a car accident.. Thank God I was the only one injured. Jon at Ankin Law got me 100K which was the most he could have gotten us since the other driver had a 100K policy.. So we received the maximum amount. Ankin Law was great and I HIGHLY recommend them!!!
I was injured while working and the company kept dragging their feet on approving the services that I needed. Ali called Ankin. Within three days I started receiving the services. I’m so happy I called. Everything worked out better than I expected. I would definitely recommend this firm to friends and family. If I every need a lawyer o will definitely use them.
I recently closed out my case with my lawyer,Telly, and could not be happier! Telly, along with his associates, made sure my questions were answered and all my doctor bills were paid by the settlement. I liked this fact the best as I didn’t have to worry about anything and at the end of the day …all I got was my check! I was advised throughout the entire process and the end result was more than I had anticipated. I would highly recommend the Ankin Law Office to anyone I know in need of a personal injury attorney.
In a complicated case that spanned over three years, I had many opportunities to contact Scott, my Ankin attorney. My questions were always answered in an understandable manner and with the kind of prompt and courteous efficiency not often seen these days. I was always given the utmost respect, not only by Scott, but by Yuli and the entire staff. Legal matters can be stressful, but Scott took great care to reassure me and address any concerns I may have had. Inquiries and questions were responded to almost immediately and never longer than 24 hours. Follow ups were thorough, taking every opportunity to keep me informed even after normal business hours or weekends. My settlement was handled in an expeditious manner, was all-inclusive, and took my long-term medical care into consideration in a way that eased my concerns for the future. I highly recommend Ankin law Office and, in particular, Scott Goldstein for any legal matters. Completely top shelf, five star service!!!
Scott with Ankin Law was outstanding. He used all his resources to get me and my family the best settlement…. thanks to him and the staff… I will recommend him to everyone.

I turned to Ankin law firm after my car accident in july . Being my first accident, I had many questions and concerns regarding the next steps to take after the accident and decided to seek legal advice. As I searched the internet, I came across Ankin Law .The first person I talked to was Alexandra who was very helpful and answered many of my questions. She got me started in the right direction. Next was Laura who was also very patient and helpful, and always made herself available if i had any concerns. She handled the paperwork for the billing expenses, putting my mind at ease. Lastly, is Telly who always kept me informed regarding the status of my case, and no matter how busy, he made it a priority to return my phone calls. He also worked to make sure the settlement I recieved was fair. These three were very professional, and I would recommend them to anyone in need of this kind of help! Thanks Ankin Law.
It help me alot and I am so glad to use you

Very hard to get in touch with my attorney, better courtesy calls.

Good lawyers, but needs more communication.
Made it easy.
Ankin Law Firm made sure that I was taken care of first. I was scared to file a law suite against my company, but my lawyer explained my rights.
The service was OK, but I feel some things could have been better. More communication was needed.
The Ankin Law firm handled everything. I never had a problem contacting anyone with my questions, everyone was always polite and welcoming. Very reassuring! I will continue using the Ankin Law firm for all my future attorney needs.
My experience has been very informational and quick.
Great, professional service that I would recommend to anyone that has been injured.
Very good service
“I will definitely recommend.”
Very pleasant from the very start
“Even though I had a small claim, I was treated as if I had a very large claim. The experience is something I will never forget.”
The convenience was the best part. I just called and they sent an investigator so I never even had to come downtown. The whole process was seamless. I always got acknowledgement and great service from Yuliana.
“From start to finish I was given A++ service.”
It’s a 10!
“If it wasn’t for Scott Goldstein, I wouldn’t have anything.”
“I was/am always updated properly and they have never left any of my questions or concerns unanswered. I have recommended this practice to numerous people already and I will continue to use and recommend this practice to others.”
You guys are great!
“All of the lawyers were very helpful. Any questions that I had were always quickly answered. Everything was great. “
The men who came to my house helped me without any inconvenience. They did great research and all of the foot work and they really put me at ease knowing that they were handling everything. Mr. Ankin was quick to call me back within minutes of reaching out to him. Overall, they did a good job.
There is no way I would have survived this 5 year, 19 surgeries journey without Scott Goldstein and his staff. Howard and Scott did an outstanding job through the ups and the occasional downs. People need this type of representation when injured at work!! The laws favor the insurance companies, not the injured worker and it is wrong. With out a strong law firm like the Akin Law Firm, a seriously injured worker could end up homeless and ruined for life…

Ankin Law supplied me with all of the information and help that I needed. My recovery doctors they helped me get were great. I had a great experience with this firm. Thanks!
Dennis, Hillary, and Helen at Ankin Law helped me out and gave me some great advice during the process of taking care of my medical bills.

A little bit drawn out more than expected, but overall good.

I was also really amazed at the speed of communication and response from my lawyer. Responses were always within 24 hours, but often they were even within a couple of hours.”
