Since its founding in 1998, Rathbun, Cservenyak & Kozol has become one of the largest law firms in Will County. With its vast resources and experienced attorneys, the firm is able to handle any case from inception to verdict. The firm has offices in Joliet, Plainfield, and Mokena and appears in all of the state and federal courts of Illinois.
In the past decade, the firm has been one of the few in Will County to consistently secure seven-figure jury verdicts. Some of its notable results include a $2 million verdict for the family of an 18-month-old baby who died because of medical malpractice, secured by William V. Kozol. Mr. Kozol also secured $2.4 million for a construction worker injured in Cook County. Founding partner Frank S. Cservenyak, Jr., attained a $1 million settlement in a high-profile case involving Laraway School students and teachers who were poisoned by ammonia-tainted chicken.
Mr. Cservenyak, who concentrates on personal injury and wrongful death cases, credits the firm’s track record to its diverse group of trusted advocates. “What differentiates us from other firms is our mix of younger and more experienced attorneys,” he says.
The firm uses the most advanced technology to resolve its clients’ cases; its skilled attorneys also rely upon a knowledgeable staff capable of summarizing the most complex medical records, preparing cutting-edge trial exhibits, and utilizing electronic resources that make the firm accessible from any courtroom.
In addition to its legal work, the firm remains dedicated to serving the local community: It is a significant supporter of the Morning Star Mission—an organization that supports the homeless—and Cservenyak is on the board of the Will-Grundy Medical Clinic. “It is very rewarding to be able to help out in the community and give a voice to those who feel like they do not have one,” he says.
