Although Attorney Christopher C. Cortese first joined Morici, Figlioli & Associates as a law clerk, he soon committed his life to fighting for the rights of those harmed in serious and catastrophic accidents as a highly skilled personal injury lawyer. Because he is dedicated to helping others, he handles a wide range of cases, including those involving car accidents, work-related injuries, nursing home abuse, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, premises liability, and more.
Before committing his life to legal work, Mr. Cortese enrolled at Marquette University where he obtained his undergraduate degree in Writing-Intensive and Spanish Language and Literature. Following the completion of his undergraduate coursework, he attended Loyola University Chicago School of Law, where he earned his Juris Doctorate. Currently, he is a member of the American Association for Justice, the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, the Illinois State Bar Association, and the Justinian Society of Lawyers.
