Robert J. Smoler

Robert J. Smoler
Of Counsel

Robert J. Smoler has over 30 years of Workers’ Compensation experience with an impressive win and settlements record. He has settled multiple cases resulting in high six-figure settlements for his clients, including a $875,000.00 settlement for a client that was injured while working at O’Hare. He is known for being a tough litigator and has tried numerous cases in front of the Commission. Graduating Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Illinois, Robert received both his Bachelor’s in Science as well as his Juris Doctorate.

Robert’s quick thinking and his background in psychology, plus his years of experience, place him ahead of the curve in negotiations. He is also a Certified Arbitrator for the Cook County Mandatory Arbitration System. This certification means Robert has extensive knowledge in mediation, which he also leverages for the betterment of his clients’ cases.

“I want my clients to know that the most important thing for them is to get their treatment and get better and let me worry about the rest,” Robert said. “Workers’ Compensation is a gratifying practice in that we represent the working person in protecting their rights and benefits in an era when that is vitally important to our society.”

By approaching his work with extreme empathy, Robert can put his clients’ minds at ease. Through his guidance and knowledge, they soon realize they are in great hands. He’s become close with many of his clients over time and has stayed in touch with them over the years.

Robert’s success is not limited to his legal profession. Outside of work he has run over 100 races in the past, including several marathons, as well as climbed Mt. Rainier and Mt. Kilimanjaro. He has a wife and two children that all share a passion for music. When Robert is not working on a case or working out, he is supporting his wife’s music career, his daughter’s passion for music and acting, and attending his son’s hockey games and practices.
