Thomas Comstock is always in demand. That’s because this young attorney a partner with Chicago’s Hall Prangle & Schoonveld, LLC has earned a reputation as one of the top young medical malpractice defense lawyers in the city.

Comstock gets results for his clients. It’s why his client list today is so long, and why the companies on it remain so loyal to him.

Mary Cunningham, with Kominiark Bresler Harvick & Gudmundson, LLC. Worked on difficult medical malpractice case with Comstock. Cunningham said that she can’t think of a better attorney to work a case with.

In one case, Comstock was working with Cunningham on joint issues on complicated matters such as the Medical Studies Act and an investigation for purposes of credentialing and privileging physicians.

Cunningham said, “Throughout the case I learned that Tom is an extremely hard worker and highly dedicated to the defense to his client.” Cunningham continued, “Tom worked tirelessly to verify compliance with the law and satisfaction of his client.”

It’s little surprise to his peers that Comstock has built such a respected in practice. He spent six years of his career at Querry & Harrow, where Larry Kowalczyk worked with Comstock.

Kowalczyk had this to say about Comstock, “He is a top shelf lawyer who is respected by the judiciary and his peers.” Kowalczyk continued, “He is extremely comfortable in the courtroom, and his approachable style and civility makes him likable by juries, the Court and his opponents.”

Comstock has achieved exceptional trial results in Cook, Kane and McHenry counties. Kowaczyk added, “Thomas exhibits the highest integrity, which I have personally observed as his coworker while at my firm, and as a colleague in cases at court at his current firm.”

Another nominator concurred with Kowalczyk observations, “We should all want to watch and strive to exemplify the attorney Tom Comstock has become.”

Comstock impresses his peers with his desire to serve his client’s best interest. One nominator added, “ Tom maintains highest standards and professionalism.” The nominator continued, “I was thoroughly impressed with Tom’s thorough work and his professional demeanor. His clients are lucky to have Tom representing them.”

In addition to building his thriving practice, Comstock always has taken time to mentor new trial lawyers. He often will offer guidance on their cases and help them improve their courtroom skills. If that is not enough, for the past seven years he has served on the Chicago Bar Association’s Judicial Evaluation Committee. Kowalczyk, who serves as a fellow member on the committee, with Comstock added,” I can attest to the great amount of time Thomas has devoted to his community.“
