About Michael S. Shinsky

Michael Shinsky's dedicated and experienced approach, combined with his extensive trial background, equips him with the essential skills to deliver outstanding representation for his clients. He achieved his law degree with honors in 2001 and commenced his legal career as a prosecutor at the Cook County State's Attorney's Office. In this role, he swiftly rose through the ranks while diligently prosecuting cases involving abused and neglected children.

In 2004, Michael made the transition to the law firm of Schwartz Jambois, where he applies his formidable trial abilities to pursue justice for individuals and their families who have suffered injuries in the civil context. At present, Michael's practice centers on advocating for and safeguarding the legal rights of individuals who have endured severe, life-altering personal injuries due to the negligence of others. He is equally committed to seeking justice for the families of victims who have tragically lost their lives due to negligence. Michael's practice areas encompass automobile accidents, premises liability, sexual assaults, medical malpractice, wrongful death, and nursing home litigation.

Michael boasts a successful track record of trying numerous civil jury cases to verdict and presenting arguments before the First District Appellate Courts of Illinois. His professional accomplishments have earned him public recognition on multiple occasions. In 2001, he was honored with the Justice Warren Wolfson Award for Excellence in Trial Advocacy. Furthermore, Michael has been acknowledged as one of Illinois' "40 Under 40 Lawyers to Watch," an accolade achieved by less than 1% of all Illinois lawyers.
