Trucking lawyer Jordan Lebovitz has been a vital member of the Nurenberg Paris law firm since 2013 where he has rapidly made a name for himself for his skillful and dedicated representation of his clients. Before joining the firm, Jordan served as captain of the nationally ranked Chicago-Kent College of Law Trial Advocacy Team where he developed his talent for evidence and trying cases. Since being at Nurenberg Paris he has set himself apart and found a practice area which he has become passionate about, trucking litigation.
To better help his clients, Jordan made it his personal mission to better understand the perspective of a truck driver and what it takes to operate safely, so he obtained his commercial driver's license (CDL).
"It's not really fair to be judgmental and pick apart what a driver may or may not be doing if you don't really know what you're talking about. So, I figured the best way to know what I am talking about is to go ahead and get the license myself."
There are different rules of the road and expectations for those who own and/or operate a commercial vehicle. By obtaining his CDL, Jordan has gained a wealth of knowledge that is crucial for your potential case. He has applied this unique perspective to hold defendants accountable for their actions and help clients get the help that they need.
Jordan was exposed at an early age to the legal field watching his father, Nurenberg Paris Partner Jamie R. Lebovitz help the victims of large scale transportation and aviation accidents. When Jordan became a lawyer, he followed in his father's footsteps and now they often work together to help their clients receive the justice they deserve. Jordan works to get those injured or those who have lost family in an accident or disaster money to pay for the medical care they desperately need and to help them move forward with their life. But beyond the financial aspect, one of Jordan's greatest motivations is to help prevent similar accidents from occurring again in the future.
