Todd Eiler is an attorney and litigator who practices in Chicago and its surrounding suburbs. He concentrates his practice in the areas of wrongful death, medical malpractice, personal injury, premises liability, construction litigation, products liability, nursing home abuse and neglect and civil rights.
Todd believes that the cultivation of a solid relationship between client and attorney is imperative. As an advocate, he is passionate about working closely with clients through every step of the litigation process. He understands that many clients have never participated in the litigation process, and therefore communication is vital. Todd’s goal is to obtain fair compensation on behalf of injury victims and their families. At Alberts Curran & Eiler P.C., Todd works closely with attorneys Marc Alberts, Glenn Curran and William Obuchowski to aggressively litigate and develop strategies on behalf of the firm’s clients. Todd has been integral in obtaining millions of dollars for clients. He has achieved compensation for clients at mediation, arbitration and trial.
Todd received his law degree, cum laude, from The John Marshall Law School in Chicago, Illinois where he was a member of the Trial Advocacy & Dispute Resolution Honors Council. Todd graduated in the top 10% of his class and was named to the Dean’s List every semester. Todd achieved high marks in courses such as Trial Advocacy, Counseling & Negotiation, and Alternative Means of Dispute Resolution. In the spring of 2010, he received the CALI Award for Excellence in Sale Transactions.
During law school, Todd worked as a law clerk for a mid-sized law firm in Chicago that predominantly focused on the practice areas of insurance coverage and defense, commercial litigation and tort defense. Working in insurance defense allowed Todd to learn the ropes of the insurance industry. He now uses those insights to litigate on behalf of his clients against insurance companies and insurance defense lawyers.
Prior to law school, Todd worked for a national truck rental and leasing company where he served as an operations manager. His duties included the development of consumer and commercial sales, client management, marketing and cost savings strategies, as well as contract negotiation. It was in this management role that Todd honed his organizational skills and developed his passion for working with clients. Todd found this experience to be invaluable, and it inspired him to pursue the law he because wanted to make a positive impact in the lives of individuals.
