Background

Tim Deffet

Timothy J. Deffet is an Illinois licensed attorney and a member of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, the Illinois State Bar Association and is a Federal Trial Bar Member in the Northern District of Illinois, which includes, but is not limited to Chicago, Illinois.

Mr. Deffet’s career has focused strictly on trial practice.  He has spent time defending and prosecuting civil claims, as well as defending criminal and DUI cases. This has given him a unique experience and knowledge of the law. He knows how a defense attorney handling a personal injury claim assesses a case in a certain way to help his client. He knows what attorneys on the other side are looking for because he has been there himself. He knows how to prosecute and try cases from a plaintiff’s perspective and is always working hard to perfect his craft as a trial lawyer.

Mr. Deffet has obtained millions of dollars for his clients in trucking accidents, car accidents, workers’ compensation cases and slip and falls.

He will not hesitate to be straight with you and he expects the same from his clients so there is a trust factor built between attorney and client.

Mr. Deffet is an EPA Bronze Medal Winner, a former nationally picked HUD Legal Honors Intern, and was an Allen Schwartz scholarship recipient in law school.

He was born into a family of 5 kids, and understands how the economy affects working class families. He is well aware the insurance companies want to hold onto every last penny instead of paying you what you deserve when you have been wronged by another person.

He shares this same understanding with his brother, James P. Deffet, a Kansas/Missouri lawyer. Contact James P. Deffet for representation if you have been injured or arrested in those states.
