Steven Malman


Malman Law’s founder, Attorney Steven Malman, has over 30 years of experience handling personal injury, nursing home, medical malpractice, premises liability, construction, and workers’ compensation cases. He is one of Chicago’s leading authorities on personal injury law and has taken a special interest in defending the elderly from neglect and abuse.

As an advocate for working on contingency, Attorney Malman believes that all injured persons should be able to obtain legal representation when they need it most, regardless of whether they have the financial means to pay for it at the time. For that reason, his clients only pay for services rendered if the case wins—you only pay if you collect compensation, and the payment comes from that collection, not from your own pocket up front.

At a very young age, Attorney Malman decided to commit his life to providing a voice for those whom the misdeeds of others have harmed. His greatest strength is the ability to empathize with his clients and recognize the impact a personal injury can have on his client’s life.

To ensure each of the firm’s clients is properly taken care of, Attorney Malman is often involved in all of his firm’s cases. He always makes himself available to clients and is committed to helping every client his firm represents so that even under difficult circumstances, they end their case with an optimal outcome and a positive impression of the legal profession.

Attorney Malman takes every step to ensure his clients feel cared for and receive the best legal services possible. He’s proud of the fact that he’s in the office every day of the week, always available to handle any of the firm’s clients’ questions or concerns.

A lifelong resident of the Chicago area, Attorney Malman spends most of his free time with his family or on the golf course.

Attorney Malman has personally handled over 25,000 cases successfully and collected hundreds of millions of dollars for his clients. He has been
instrumental in obtaining multiple seven-figure verdicts and settlements, including:

  • $11,600,000.00 – product liability settlement;
