Graham Deurance, Esq.

Graham Deurance

Graham brings to his practice an overall industriousness, keen intelligence and excellent problem solving ability. I use the phrase "figure it out" when describing a task the ideal lawyer must accomplish well. Surprisingly, even though the essence of the profession requires lawyers to solve problems for their clients, few possess a strong ability to "figure it out" because it requires creativity (something lawyers often lack). Graham has proven to me that he can "figure out" any problem brought to him. On top of excelling at the chief virtue of lawyers, Graham is simply a good person which counts more than all else. He receives my highest recommendation.

What Makes Attorney Graham Deurance Uniquely Qualified To Defend You?

I landed in Chicago in 2010 after living in Ohio, Texas, and Virginia. In 2015 I met my wife Rebecca, a Chicago native and social worker with the CPS. After 15 wonderful years with my last dog, Mick, Rebecca and I look forward to welcoming a new puppy into our lives soon. Though I love to be outdoors hiking, sitting on a beach, or playing sports; my guilty pleasure is reality television. I am actively engaged in community outreach and I aspire to be a public servant in the future.

Victims need the most help in three key ways:

(1) Having independently researched settlement and jury verdicts in Illinois, I will determine the value of your case and ensure that you receive a fair settlement. Having an attorney lets insurance companies know you cannot be bought cheap.

(2) I will work with you, your insurance companies and your providers to keep your bills out of collections—do not let hospital bills ruin your credit.

(3) After settlement/jury verdict, I will negotiate down your outstanding bills, so that you keep as much of your settlement as possible.
