The lawyers at Sukhman | Yagoda only represent people and families who have suffered significant personal injury or catastrophic loss; and therefore, we know how to vigorously pursue and prove to a jury that if someone is wrongfully hurt by a doctor, hospital, nursing home, or product manufacturer justice must be served in order to make things right.

During their careers, Sukhman | Yagoda lawyers have obtained nearly $300 million dollars in verdicts and settlements for our clients.

The firm of Sukhman | Yagoda opened its doors in April 2016, but attorneys Alexander Sukhman and Ryan Yagoda have been working together representing injured victims and their families for over 15 years becoming one of the most preeminent trial-attorney teams not only in Chicago but throughout the State of Illinois.

Partner History

In the Fall of 1993, Alex and Ryan met as college roommates at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign; and after graduation, they both attended Chicago Kent College of Law. After graduating law school, they started their legal careers on separate paths: Alex working for a boutique personal injury firm and Ryan working for a large commercial litigation firm.

The two reconnected in 2003; and since that time, they have created and implemented a team approach to working up and trying cases to verdict. This team approach not only allows a two-partner perspective on all cases, but it allows cases to get to trial faster. In fact, during a 90-day period one year, the duo successfully tried three cases to verdict.

Team Approach

The Sukhman|Yagoda team approach has created a proven track record of victories for the injured throughout the State of Illinois with successful jury verdicts in the following counties: Cook, Will, Lake, Kane, DuPage, Kankakee, Champaign, Coles, Warren, Knox, and Fayette.

From their early beginnings, Alex Sukhman and Ryan Yagoda were trial lawyers who knew their way around the courtroom. Now, Sukhman | Yagoda, as a law firm of trial lawyers, will carry on that history and fight for you and your family.
