Chicago - March 20, 2019
Richard Pullano and Mathew Siporin from Pullano Law Offices obtained a significant settlement on behalf of a man who suffered permanent and debilitating injuries when a semi-tractor trailer t-boned the driver side door of his SUV. While the accident occurred in Lake County, Pullano Law successfully pursued the case in Cook County for their clients.
The man was driving to work when without warning a truck broadsided his vehicle and pinned him inside his SUV. He was initially diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury and pelvic fractures that were treated non-operatively. Despite not needing any orthopedic surgeries, the man was left with permanent cognitive and neurologic impairments, including drop foot and chronic pain.

Chicago - January 18, 2018
The North Suburban Bar Association will hold its 5th Annual High School Mock Trial Invitational on Jan. 25 at the Skokie Courthouse. The field of teams has grown to 16 for this year’s competition.
NSBA President Richard Pullano is leading efforts to organize the event, which he believes is key in promoting the profession to the future generation of lawyers.
“One of the primary reasons it is so important that we get the best and brightest to join our profession is to help those in need.” Pullano said “Lawyers are the first responders to the vulnerable and defenseless in society. On many occasions, without a lawyer in their corner, there would be no path to justice. This tournament is a fun and educational way of exposing these young adults to the justice system in hopes they will pursue a career in the law in the future.”
