Our History

Established in 1995 by four partners and four associates, DBMS rapidly developed a reputation of excellence in trial and appellate practice. Since its inception, DBMS has tried hundreds of cases to verdict in both state and federal courts. Many client referrals to DBMS arise from word-of-mouth testaments from clients who have benefited through DBMS’ excellent service.

DBMS initially concentrated its representation in the fields of medical malpractice, professional liability and insurance defense. Soon after its formation, DBMS was retained by major U.S. auto manufacturers to defend product liability cases throughout the Midwest, which, in turn, led to the formation of a nationally renown product liability practice.

As the firm has grown, DBMS has developed a reputation of excellence in myriad other practice areas, including institutional liability, mass tort and class actions, commercial litigation, insurance coverage, and appeals. No firm in Chicago has tried more complex, high exposure cases successfully as has DBMS. The attorneys of DBMS count among their accolades a multitude of prestigious honors and recognitions from legal and peer rankings, including the American College of Trial Lawyers, the Litigation Counsel of America, Chicago Lawyer Magazine, Illinois Leading Lawyers and Illinois Super Lawyers.
