Michael E. Lapin, Esq.

Mike Lapin joined Eric Glasson & Associates in 2014 after graduating from Indiana University. Straight out of law school, Mike achieved early success with a jury trial verdict against a major governmental agency on behalf of a man who sustained a serious spinal injury in a bus accident. Since then, Mike has continued to advocate for the injured by successfully litigating hundreds of cases. Outside of court, he has negotiated hundreds of settlements against major insurance companies, many times having recovered the entire policy-limit on behalf of his clients.

Mike recently completed the successful representation of a woman who suffered a torn knee in a car crash. Initially, the defendant denied responsibility and filed a motion for summary judgment in the Circuit Court of Cook County. Mike successfully argued against the motion before the Honorable Judge John Ehrlich, and after defeating the motion, Mike reached a $145,000.00 settlement with the insurance company.

Mike’s experience includes auto accidents, wrongful deaths, dog bites, slip and falls, and many other types of personal injury cases. He always puts the client first and he has earned his reputation as a dedicated advocate. He has devoted his entire professional career to the representation of injured people and their families.
