Born and raised in Chicago, I have a passion for helping the residents of Chicagoland. After graduating from DePaul University Law School in 1981, I began practicing personal injury law in Illinois.

Since then I’ve represented hundreds of Illinois residents over a 30+ year career. In that time, I started one of the top personal injury law firms in Chicago, Trapp & Geller.

Since our inception we have recovered over $250,000,000 in damages for clients.

Over the course of my 35 years as a personal injury lawyer, I have been recognized by many local and national outlets as one of the best in personal injury law.
