A lifelong resident of Illinois, Mr. Waldman raised his family in the Pekin/Peoria area where he resides today. Mr. Waldman attended Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, graduating with University Honors with a Bachelors degree in Political Science and Paralegal Studies. He began practicing law after graduating from University of Illinois College of Law in 1988. After law school Mr. Waldman began working for a law firm that primarily did work for insurance companies, defending personal injuries and workers compensation claims. Trying to save insurance companies money at the expense of innocent accident victims was not very rewarding. He joined Kanoski Bresney in 1994 and has worked tirelessly for injured victims ever since. It is estimated that Mr. Waldman has successfully fought for more than 10,000 injured people since coming to Kanoski Bresney.

Mr. Waldman is an avid NASCAR fan and a craft beer enthusiast.

"Better to remain silent and be thought to be a fool that to speak out and remove all doubt."

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
