Chicago Personal Injury & Workers’ Compensation Attorneys

About Us

When Neal B. Strom founded Strom & Associates in 1981, his goal was to help individuals and families who were unable to help themselves. That desire lives on today in the form of Strom Yen Injury Attorneys. With his partners, Kevin Yen and Lindsey Strom, Neal and his team have formulated innovative methods to help their clients. 

Client-Focused Approach

We take a client-focused approach to every matter we handle. We take the time to evaluate your individual needs and expectations and make it a priority to meet them. Once we have an understanding of your situation, we create a plan to reach a conclusion that is of the most benefit to you while in the shortest amount of time possible.

Victims of work-related accidents, nursing home abuse, motor vehicle accidents and other personal injury events often have many questions. Injured workers wonder whether they can see their own doctor or how the process works to obtain workers’ compensation.

Dedicated Advocates

It isn’t uncommon to hear jokes about lawyers but our workers’ compensation and personal injury attorneys at Strom & Associates turn all these jokes on their heads. We take our role as advocates seriously and our goal is always to ensure that you are treated fairly and are justly compensated for your injuries. We are not afraid of taking your claim through the entire litigation process or challenging large companies and insurance companies on your behalf.

Why We Are Lawyers

Lawyer jokes and uninformed statements bashing the civil justice system have dogged plaintiff attorneys through many a golf game, PTA meeting, or dinner party. When you get questions about what trial lawyers do, you need to respond with the facts:

Question:
What kind of lawyer are you, and why did you choose that profession?

Answer:
I decided to become a lawyer because I wanted to help people. My clients are real people, not corporations. I work with small business owners, individuals, and their families.

I decided long ago that I didn’t want to use my skills to help some large, faceless organization more interested in profits than people.

My clients all have one thing in common: somebody did something to hurt them and isn’t treating them fairly by acknowledging the wrong and fixing it. What can you do when you aren’t treated fairly? You can hire a lawyer who is willing to work hard for real people like you.

Often, but not always, the people who hurt my clients realize what they did and want to do the right thing. But their insurance companies take over, and the companies try as hard as they can to keep my clients from being treated fairly.

The insurance industry makes its profits by taking your money and holding onto it for as long it possibly can. So the industry often denies claims it knows are perfectly valid. Insurance companies stall and delay, so they can hold on to people’s money longer and invest it for huge profits – but meanwhile, my clients are forced to wait.

I don’t work for the insurance industry; my job is to help people when the insurance industry is giving them the runaround.

It has become popular to pick on people who do what I do for a living. But I am proud to say that I help real people in need. I don’t think there is a much better job in our legal system than helping make sure the system works right for the average American families it was intended to help.
