Firm Overview

Experienced Lake County Attorneys

Lawyers for Commercial Litigation, Securities Litigation, Workers' Compensation, Personal Injury, and Criminal Law

Owens & Laughlin LLC is a firm located in the northern suburbs of Chicago. Our partners, Troy C. Owens and Brian M. Laughlin have over four decades of combined experience in several complex practice areas. Troy and Brian attended undergraduate school together and have been friends for over 30 years. They strongly believe in serving the local communities in which they live, where client relationships are among their core values. They are members of the Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA); Grayslake, Lake in the Hills, and Algonquin Chambers of Commerce; the Federal Trial Bar; and have received Pro Hac Vice admission to practice in front of the Wisconsin District Court, Florida Circuit Court, and Texas Circuit Court.

Our partners bring a unique blend of experiences and an aggressive approach to each case we handle. For example, Brian worked for several years as a workers' compensation defense attorney for some of the largest employers in the state. This gives him first-hand knowledge of how adjusters and attorneys think and how they go about choosing the doctors to defend their cases. We are also one of the few firms in the area that handles securities litigation and death penalty litigation. In addition, we have handled some of the most challenging personal injury cases, such as representing victims of mesothelioma and Legionnaires' disease.

Aggressively Advocating for Your Rights and Best Interests

At Owens & Laughlin LLC, we put the individual needs of our clients above all else. We understand that each case is unique, and we put our in-depth experience to work to explore all legal avenues and develop the most practical, effective, and cost-efficient resolutions. As plaintiffs' attorneys, we understand that most cases do not end up going to trial.

However, our lawyers have served as lead counsel in hundreds of bench and jury trials, and we have established a strong track record of success with several seven-figure outcomes through litigation. We prepare each matter with the assumption that we will be presenting the case in front of a judge or jury. We also leverage our extensive knowledge of the other side to employ cutting edge tactics that frequently catch them off-balance, introducing an element of uncertainty into the case that often provides strong motivation for them to settle.

As defense attorneys, we believe in acting quickly and decisively, particularly when frivolous actions are threatened or made against LLCs, partnerships, corporations, and other types of businesses. By taking preemptive and unrelenting action against such adversaries, it puts our opponents on the defensive and makes them reconsider the costs of continuing down this road. If you need skilled and aggressive legal representation with a personal touch, we welcome the opportunity to serve you. Contact Owens & Laughlin LLC today at 847-854-8700 (Lake in the Hills) or 847-752-8537 (Grayslake) to schedule your personalized consultation.

We serve clients in the northern Chicago suburbs and throughout the state of Illinois including Lake County, McHenry County, Cook County, DuPage County, Will County, Kane County, and Rockford County.
