David A. Williams

“David was the best attorney that my mom and I had. For every question there was always an response. We thank him for his services.”

“Very quick at getting back to me! Very good at listening! Very good at answering any questions I had! Excellent service over all! I would really recommend him!”

“Im pretty please with the services rendered by services. I will highly recommended.”
IrisMarie R.

“David is thorough, personable, and very responsive. He is realistic and did a great job laying out the process. If you want a straight shooter that has your best interests first, he is for you. David did a great job. I highly recommend him.”

“I have used David several times. He is an excellent attorney. David is knowledgeable, friendly, and takes the time to keep you informed on your case. Would definitely hire him again in the future.”

“After doing some research about the difficulties of dealing with insurance companies and how the process can go wrong, I decided to hire an attorney. David helped me through a very difficult time after a car accident. He was helpful in every stage of the process from securing care, answering any questions, negotiating the settlement, negotiating the liens and closing out the case. He was always very communicative, friendly and thorough. One thing that really stuck out about David was that he never pushed any options. He would present you with all the options, answer any questions, discuss the possibilities and help you make the right choice.

David would be my first choice if I was looking for a personal injury attorney. He was a pleasure to work with and really helped me through a difficult time. I can’t thank him enough.”

“We have nothing but excellent things to say about David. My husband was not able to get up and walk due to his injury and David came to our house and explained very well our circumstances and what were our options. He has been there step by step with the whole process and has always been very professional. He is very friendly and has great customer service skills. I definitely recommend him to my friends and family if they ever needed a Personal Injury Lawyer. He is definitely in our speed dial.”
Vidal and Martha

“When I was involved in a car accident with an uninsured motorist it didn’t take me long to figure out that my own insurance was looking out for the uninsured motorist and not myself. After I reached out to David, he took the time to explain the process of getting a fair settlement. David always returned my calls or emails in a timely manner and was nothing but professional from the first time I contacted him. This was no matter I could have taken on myself. David worked with my insurance company to get what I feel was a fair settlement. I would certainly recommend David if you need a good and honest attorney.”

“A little over a year ago (2018) my teenage daughter was T-boned while driving alone one cold night. The offender slid through a stop sign, spinning my daughter around totalling our car. My daughter had injuries from the impact that required months of rehab. A mutual friend referred me to David Williams and we began a dialog about the event. Months later David handled the settlement and we were all pleased with the outcome. Very professional and detail oriented. David handled our case with great care and methodology. I highly recommend him and his practice.”

“I was referred to David after I was hit by a car back in June of 2016. My case was difficult because it was an uninsured taxi company that hit me. For the first year and a half after my accident I had a different attorney but he set my case aside and basically told me it was a lost cause. David was determined to win my case and he did within only half the time of my first attorney. David is friendly, personable, good at communicating, and a very hard worker. I strongly recommend David!!”

“I injured my lower back at work. After lengthy online research I chose David Andrew Williams. His reviews were exceptional. I was not disappointed he is an exceptional lawyer. He took the time to understand my injury and took the necessary steps to get a good settlement and also to provide for my needs in the future. I recommended him to a friend and my daughter. They both also felt that he exceeded their expectations. Most importantly I found a good lawyer during the process and also found a new friend. This is definitely a first time experience. If you have a personal injury or workmen’s comp claim hire David Williams he’s the best.”

“David Williams settled a Workers Comp. Case in two years with persistence and kept us updated and always returned phone calls and or emails in a timely manner. Results was excellent!

Don’t let the fact that David is from a small Law Firm give you pause, David is a Lawer that I am glad we had to work for us.”

“I had never been involved in a personal injury lawsuit. I was hit by a car while riding my bike and thought I would just work with the insurance companies. I started getting a bad feeling about the other insurance company and a good friend referred me to David. He explained the process in detail and kept me up to date all the way through. His advice was objective, practical and always in my best interest. I would highly recommend him.”

“My son and I were involved in a really bad auto accident, it was already a frightening ordeal but when your child is involved it becomes the worst! David came to our home in Rockford to meet with us first to see how we were doing, then he walked us through what will happen next. I thoroughly loved how David showed so much care to my son as if he was his own, and as a mother, that spoke volume. I referred David to everyone I knew from then on.”

“Let’s just say Dave handle my case like if it was the only one he had. Lots of attention lot of follow-ups. Not only was I impressed with his people skills but the Aftercare after everything was said and done he was still helpful with questions I might have had regarding settlement or other issues. As far as I’m concerned I would never get another attorney for anything else if Dave did it all LOL. All ended by saying that Dave is an individual who gets things accomplished hand has amazing follow through no whitewashing anything he gives it to you straight and to the point. If you’re looking for an attorney that is looking out for your best interest and is wonderful at getting back to you this is the man for you have nothing but High Praise for this attorney.”

“David is the best attorney I have ever done business with. He exceeded my expectations and that means a lot coming from me. Highly recommended. I will advise anybody I know to use his services.”

“I was in my friend’s car going out to eat when we swerved to avoid a pothole but struck another vehicle head on. I was injured and went directly to the hospital. A police report was made and I hired a lawyer. The insurance company denied the claim and believed the accident was a fraud. My old lawyer did not want to file a lawsuit to fight the denial so I hired Mr. Williams, who filed a lawsuit and fought the case for 2 years. The insurance company eventually settled for its policy limit before trial. I had scars on my knees and chest from the accident and was compensated for these, my medical bills and pain and suffering. It took nearly 3 years from the date of the accident to win my case but I was very happy with Mr. Williams’ effort and the final result. He also returned my phone calls unlike my old lawyer.”

“David is exceptional! Easy to talk to, understanding and handled the case quickly and efficiently. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.”

“I badly injured my shoulder in 2008 while working as a truck driver and filed a workers compensation case. I had several surgeries and was never able to return back to work. The insurance company denied different treatment and sometime failed to pay me. In 2013, a friend told me about David and I had already fired 4 other lawyers. Other lawyers would never call me back or would fail to follow through with the plan. Because of my issues with prior lawyers, David was very reluctant to take my case but he ultimately decided to help me out. After my final surgery in 2014, my doctor gave me permanent restrictions of only a light duty job and because I am older and have no education there wasn’t any real work for me anywhere. I was still about 10 years from retirement age. After several court appearances, David was able to settle my case in the end so that I had money for future medical care and money to replace the income that I have lost. He worked hard to get me the settlement that I deserved.”

“I was referred to David after I was involved in an automobile accident in the fall of 2014. That accident changed my life going forward in my daily activities and life as I knew it.

I called David the week after and was surprised how diligent of an attorney he seemed to be on that first conversation. His work ethic and concern for my case were expressed very quickly. He called me himself when I needed to know something about the case or he would answer the phone when I tried to reach him. He always made me feel as if I was the only case he was working on, never rushed and constantly updating me. He called after I had procedures done, asking how I was and if I needed anything.

I would refer David to all my family and friends, he’s hard-working, very knowledgeable and dedicated to getting the most positive outcome for his clients!”

“I hired David to be my lawyer regarding a bad accident I was in. From the very beginning you can tell David genuinely cares about your best interest and takes the time to walk through everything with you. He was available every step of the way, upfront, informative and clear about the entire process. I would highly reccomend David to anyone in need of a personal injury lawyer. His experience, knowledge & work ethic are everything you are looking for! I felt lucky to have had him and would strongly recommend you do the same!”

“I have not met many Lawyers that are 100% honest with you. He took care of everything I needed and a few things unrelated to case. If you need a attorney willing to give it his all and actually care about the outcome then David is the man for you.”

“I had a pleasantly surprising experience because David was my lawyer. A Charter bus hit me, turning out of the wrong lane and I needed a reputable attorney. I was referred by two other friends who had highly recommended his services. My case was resolved in a timely fashion and David was always available to answer any questions I had about my case. He communicated and was thorough. His rates are competitive and affordable as well.”
Naomi C.

“So… I have never been in a personal injury lawsuit… David was very upfront with me and very receptive… disregarding time that had passed after my settlement… which i assume is rare… I had some things come up… but he was on top of notifying me and letting me know of the situation…
He made my situation 100% less stressful!! He was very upfront and very honest!!! love that he never skipped a step while I have no idea what was going on…very much recommend him!!!”
Janeth D.

“I was referred to Mr. Williams for my Workmans Comp and Personal Injury case through a friend of mine. As intimidating as Lawyers can be, Mr. Williams was down to earth and easy to talk to. Any questions and or concerns I had, he addressed and explained in full detail. I never had to wait around for a phone call back when I would call him. Therefore, throughout my pending case I never felt ignored, alone or confused. Mr. Williams is not only intelligent, but also very hard working. Mr. Williams was always one step ahead of the game. I personally recommend Mr. WIlliams to all of my family and friends. He by far is excellent at what he does. I am very happy to have hired Mr. David A. Williams.”
Izabel D.

“Its very hard to find an attorney that gives you personalized service and truly has your best interest in mind. The staff is courteous, friendly and more importantly professional. I was extremely upset at my former attorney for the lack of personal service and really treating me as just another case. I couldn’t believe the time they took to review my case and understand the full disclosure of my injury. I walked out of the initial meeting speechless and relieved. A week later Attorney David Williams followed up with me and went over their strategy regarding my specific case. I was truly impressed with the follow-up and the step by step process of what I should expect to see going forward. Over the course of time they kept me in the loop and never left me in the dark. I was very happy to see that my needs were being addresed timely and the detail information they gathered to address my individual case. They are the best in the business and I was extremely satisfied with my results of the settlement. I recommend them highly and can assure you they will work hard to ensure you get what you deserve! I cannot stress enough to anyone reading this to call them immediately for a consultation and you will see everything I have said is 100% accurate. Thank you again Dave & Brad for the personalized service and your continued support throughout this effortless process on my end…Lastly, the Balke Firm proved to me they have very high standards and are very passionate about their clients.”

Brad J. Balke

“Brad just finished our lawsuit after over 3 years, and I am very happy with the outcome. Brad was very on top of things during the entire case, and always keep me posted on the status of the case. It took some time, but ended up much better than I anticipated. Best part was Brad called a few days after my settlement check was sent, and stated there was a mistake caught in accounting, and that the $2500 mistake in my favor will be sent out which I just received today!! So, If anyone is looking for a great attorney along with being honest which is unheard of. Brad Balke is one of the few. His Staff fell from the same tree. Great People to work with.”
Ronald V.

“Brad was a tireless advocate on my behalf regarding a workers’ compensation claim. Brad and his partner Dave were very patient with me navigating an area in which I have no expertise. I was very pleased with the settlement and would hire him again. I highly recommend this law firm. Thank you Brad and Dave!”

“I was rear ended and originally dealing with insurance for my injuries. When I started getting resistance from the other parties insurance regarding treatment, I needed help. I met with Brad, showed him all of my paperwork, bills etc. He listened, understood and knew exactly what needed to be done. He did not hesitate to take on my case even though I was months in. He is so kind that I don’t think the people he’s negotiating with can say no to him. He somehow seems to get bills to disappear which ultimately ends up with more money in your pocket. He’s good. He’s knowledgeable. He gets it done! I can’t thank him enough.”

“Brad is amazing. He answered all my questions and communicated with me on a regular basis. He is so friendly,sympathetic and I would recommend him to anyone. I am beyond happy with the settlement. Couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer.”

“After being told I didn’t have a case by another attorney, an acquaintance referred me to Brad Balke. Wow, what a blessing! I initially met with Brad (who conveniently came to my house), showed him pictures of my accident and explained my injuries. We immediately bonded and I hired him on the spot. Both Brad Balke and Dave Williams worked on my case and kept me informed every step of the way. Too bad for that other attorney; he lost out on a nice payday! I highly recommend Balke Law.”

“Brad Balke was a great lawyer for me- he was very professional, polite, and worked hard to help me when I needed it most. He was always available and excellent with communication. He even sent me flowers after my accident and helped me every step of the way with anything I needed. I would contact him again if I ever needed to and recommend him to anyone I know.”

“Brad is a first class attorney. He is open, honest and above all, he is responsive. He handled a personal injury case for me as well as a WC case. Both were handled flawlessly. I highly recommend Brad Balke and would use him again without hesitation.”

“Mr. Balke takes responsibility for and Pride in the delivery of his work. I feel Mr. Balke exceeds in these five qualities. He is Assertive, Attentive, Broadminded, methodical and very trustworthy. Mr. Balke and his staff have a realistic view on what makes great customer service. If ever in need for an attorney, Mr. Brad J. Balke would be my first choice from the category listed as one of the best in Chicago. Thank you and your staff again for all your hard work.”

“Mr. Balke was a God Send for me. He made sure I received all medical care I needed in a timely manner. He is great at communicating with his clients. When it came time for settlement he went after it with gusto. He is well known in the world of Workers Compensation and is respected by arbitrators and his peers. As much as I hope I never am injured on the job again, I know if I am I have Mr. Balke to protect my interests. I’d hire him again in a heartbeat.”
