Timothy F. Winslow
Timothy F. Winslow has been fighting for injured workers and victims harmed in motor vehicle accidents for over a decade. In early 2005, while in law school, Mr. Winslow started his legal career by clerking in the Felony Division of the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office at 26th and California. At that time, he was also focusing on discovery and pleadings at a premier plaintiff’s personal injury law firm in order to gain real world legal experience and practical skills. Mr. Winslow was sworn into the State of Illinois Bar on May 4th, 2006 on Navy Pier by Illinois Supreme Court Justice Charles E. Freeman. As a way to kick off his successful legal career, just eight days after obtaining his law license, Mr. Winslow had already signed up his first personal injury client involving a motor vehicle accident and filed his first lawsuit in Will County. Within the first four months as a newly minted attorney, Mr. Winslow already had settled this first personal injury case and handed his client a check for thousands of dollars for his injuries.
Mr. Winslow’s litigation experience and resume is highlighted in representing injured clients struggling and working multiple jobs just to make ends meet. He successfully tried and won a dual wage award against the large corporation of Federal Express in the case of Jasper v. Federal Express. Mr. Winslow also successfully argued and won an award for not just an injury to merely one body part in a work related specific trauma accident, but also was awarded by an Arbitrator for a secondary injury to the Petitioner’s antalgic gait due to the biomechanical walking habits in order to compensate this permanent leg injury. Mr. Winslow’s workers’ compensation practice focuses on complex back injuries with clients who work for temporary staffing agencies who do not know where to turn for their medical treatment needs after being injured on the job site.
In Federal Court, Mr. Winslow has served as one of the principal trial attorneys in police brutality and Section 1983 cases. He has been a chair in cases tried against the City of Chicago Police Department such as Smith v. City of Chicago. Litigated in front of the Honorable Federal Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman, Mr. Winslow has assisted in jury trials, such as this case, all the way to a successful verdict for victims of police brutality in these hard times.
Mr. Winslow prides himself on zealously representing and aggressively pursuing his clients’ claims and has obtained millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts over his illustrious ten year plus career practicing law in the State of Illinois and Federal Court. Mr. Winslow has a solid and respected reputation throughout the State of Illinois by litigating a plethora of cases on behalf of injured workers achieving awards that live up to his clients’ expectations.
Mr. Winslow earned his Juris Doctor from the John Marshall Law School. He is licensed to practice law in the State of Illinois and is a member of the General Bar of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Economics at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana.
In his free time, Mr. Winslow can be found singing, “Go Cubs Go” at Wrigley Field, outdoors angling for musky, bass and walleye, or peering down at his hole cards playing Texas Holdem with close friends. Mr. Winslow resides in the Western Suburbs of Chicago with his wife Karen and daughter Ainsley.
