Why SSW?

Tradition of Excellence

We provide complete, personalized, and skilled service to every client.  This proud tradition of excellence began when the firm was founded by Albert “Al” Salvi (1924-2003) in 1952.  Today, the tradition continues, in the capable hands of his children and grandchildren.  Many of the firm’s current clients are the children and grandchildren of Al’s original clients, a testament to the care and effort SSW attorneys pour into every single case, as well as evidence of our clients’ satisfaction and trust. 

Personalized Client Approach

Unlike other firms, at SSW, you are not just a name on a file.  Every SSW client is a member of the SSW family.  At SSW, you are a valued client entitled to a team of competent attorneys.  As a client of SSW, you will receive counsel and representation from highly experienced attorneys with outstanding academic and professional credentials. 

Exceptional Attorneys

Our attorneys have honed their legal expertise by working with thousands of clients on a variety of legal matters during the decades they have been practicing throughout Northern Illinois.  Our attorneys possess more than 120 years of combined legal experience.  Three of our attorneys have advanced law degrees, including LLM (“Masters of Law”) degrees in trial advocacy, tax, and estate planning.  One of our attorneys is a Certified Public Accountant, while another one of our attorneys teaches courtroom trial techniques to law students at Loyola University Chicago School of Law.

Valuable Experience

Our attorneys litigate cases in state and federal courts throughout Illinois.  SSW attorneys litigate cases in Cook, Lake, McHenry, DuPage, and Kane County courthouses, as well as the Federal District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. 

Not only do SSW attorneys practice in the various trial courts throughout Northern Illinois, they also raise and defend appeals in the Illinois Appellate Court and the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.  As a result of this litigation experience, we not only have extensive knowledge of court rules and procedure, we also have experience with many of the judges, prosecutors, and attorneys who may decide, prosecute, or oppose your claim.  Armed with this knowledge, we are able to more effectively anticipate and execute the most efficient approach to your case. 

Successful Outcomes

SSW attorneys work tirelessly to obtain favorable verdicts, settlements, and outcomes for their clients.  Our personal injury attorneys have obtained millions of dollars on behalf of their injured clients.  Our family law attorneys have helped countless clients obtain justice in the wake of confrontational legal disputes.  Our DUI, traffic, and criminal attorneys have aggressively protected the constitutional rights of their accused clients.  And our estate planning attorneys have offered sound and creative guidance to those planning for the future.
