Mike Adler joined Adler & Adler P.C. after working for six years at one of the top civil litigation defense firms in the city of Chicago. During a successful career as a defense lawyer representing businesses, hospitals, doctors, municipalities, and international manufacturers, Mike saw just how hard it is for victims of malpractice to get answers and accountability.

Mike joined Adler & Adler P.C. because he wanted to have an impact on people’s lives and help people who have been hurt. Now, as a plaintiff’s attorney who specializes in medical malpractice, work place injuries, wage theft, employment discrimination, products liability, motor vehicle accidents, and nursing home malpractice, he has the opportunity to help people who need it the most.

Mike spends his free time volunteering his legal skills by representing minors seeking asylum and facing deportation, and tenants fighting eviction.  Mike lives with his wife and son in the Portage Park neighborhood of Chicago, where he is involved in local neighborhood organizations and enjoys spending time with family, catching a baseball game, watching old movies, and seeing some live music.
