Ankin Law Office LLC is thrilled to announce that its owner and partner, Howard Ankin, has been honored as a Super Lawyer. This honor is bestowed to only those attorneys who have the highest legal ethics, professional achievements and peer estimation. In the state of Illinois, just 5 percent of attorneys have received this rating. Mr. Ankin is honored to have been selected as a Super Lawyer and credits his success to the lessons he learned from his father and grandfather, who were also attorneys.
As a young boy, Mr. Ankin would travel to court with his father and grandfather, watching them passionately advocate for the rights of others. He gained a personal love of the law and decided to follow in their footsteps. After graduating from The John Marshall Law School with a Juris Doctor, he eventually founded Ankin Law Office with his father. Today, Mr. Ankin keeps alive the family tradition of providing outstanding legal representation to people who have experienced a workplace injury, have been harmed through negligence or are seeking disability benefits.
In his meetings with clients, Mr. Ankin takes the time to understand their situation and explain to them how Illinois law will apply to their case. He treats his clients with compassion, knowing that the road to recovery can be a long and arduous one filled with physical, emotional and financial complications. Fueled by a commitment to clients, Mr. Ankin is a fierce advocate for them. Whether he is in the courtroom litigating or behind closed doors negotiating a settlement, he keeps a client’s best interests in mind. As a tenacious and goal-oriented attorney, Mr. Ankin has consistently obtained favorable verdicts and settlements, accumulating millions of dollars for clients.
His new Super Lawyers rating is just one of many honors Mr. Ankin has received throughout the course of his career. He has earned the ranking of BV Distinguished from Martindale-Hubbell, which is a widely respected mark of achievement; the Workers’ Injury Law & Advocacy Group honored Mr. Ankin as one of the WILG Top 100 Injured Workers’ Attorneys in 2014; and he also holds an Avvo “Superb” rating.
When he is not representing clients, Mr. Ankin actively participates in the legal community with groups such as the Illinois State Bar Association, the Work Injury Lawyers Association and the Chicago Bar Association. His commitment to service extends beyond the legal arena. The Chicago Teamsters Hispanic Caucus honored Mr. Ankin for his work in the community with the Award of Gratitude. He has also received the Apostle Jackson Outstanding Service Award.
Above all, Mr. Ankin focuses on serving as an attorney and a friend to clients in need. His deep commitment to the community is evidenced not only by the results he obtains and the awards he receives, but also by the number of families who seek his help for legal matters.
