What's it like to work at Ankin Law?

Two Attorneys and two legal assistants talk about what it’s like to work at Ankin Law. What they like, what they’ve learned, and what the culture is like on a day-to-day basis at the firm.

Work with the best and brightest

Ankin Law is one of the largest filers of workers’ compensation in the state of Illinois. Howard Ankin and his team of brilliant attorneys are some of the best minds in the personal injury law space. Attorneys at Ankin Law are equally adept at settling cases or winning verdicts in court. Ankin Law regularly collects awards in the six and seven figures for clients.

A clear path for growth

Ankin Law is known for promoting form within. From day one answering the phones, law clerks at Ankin Law have gone on to grow at the firm, learn new skills, complete their degrees, and become associate attorneys – even partners – at Ankin Law.

Benefits matter

It’s unusual to have your medical, dental and vision insurance paid for by your employer. But that’s how we do it here. Ankin Law staff have a choice of PTO, HMO, matching 401 K, and Employee Assistance Program, and a pre-tax option for commuters. Paid benefits are just one of the reasons to join the team.
