About Us
Our practice is the evolution of a practice started by Jim Best over thirty-five years ago, which has grown into a mid-size firm with a reputation for excellence. We are an AV rated law firm, and several of our attorneys are members of the Leading Lawyers Network in Illinois. Our clients, many of whom have worked with us in multiple matters over a span of years, benefit from our vast experience, dedication to achieving results at reasonable rates and our commitment to quality. Our top priorities are efficient case management and effective communication with our clients. We are accessible to you, our clients, when you need us. We have office locations in Chicago, Naperville, Rockford and Will County, and practice throughout the state of Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana.

At BVH, we are active trial lawyers, concentrating in litigation of civil claims, including all types of tort litigation, commercial litigation, employment law, toxic torts, general negligence and personal injury claims, construction law and professional negligence. We serve as coverage counsel for many local and national insurance carriers, and successfully handle first party, property and bad faith claims, as well as declaratory actions. Our attorneys are skilled in and outside the courtroom, and have tried numerous cases to verdict, including many fatality and catastrophic injury cases in recent years.
