Practice Areas

Regarding my consumer litigation practice, I primarily help people with debt collection harassment, credit reporting problems, and consumer fraud issues. 

Since joining Mike Agruss Law in February 2022, I have settled over 100 consumer rights cases. Since 2017, I have successfully arbitrated, mediated, and pre-tried about ten cases. 

Prior to joining Mike Agruss Law, I clerked for an Illinois Appellate Court Justice for the First District for about two years. I then worked in private practice handling medical malpractice, wrongful death, catastrophic injury, and other personal injury cases for about two years. I tried an 8-day medical malpractice jury trial with co-counsel.

The following are my areas of expertise:

  • Consumer law: debt collection harassment; credit report errors; unfair and deceptive business practices. Our consumer rights practice is national, so we are able to help consumers across the country. We utilize state and federal laws that have fee-shifting provisions, meaning that the defendant we are suing has to pay our fees and costs. In other words, our clients never have to pay us to handle their consumer rights cases. In the last year alone, I settled over 120 consumer rights cases.

Professional and Charity Organizations 

  • From serving as the Vice President of the Chicago-Kent Justinian Society, I went on to serve on the Executive Committee of the parent organization, the Justinian Society of Lawyers. In 2021, I was elected to serve as the secretary of the Justinian Society of Lawyers. The following year I was elected to serve as the treasurer of the Justinian Society.
  • I have been on the Scholarship Committee of the Diversity Scholarship Foundation (DSF) since 2017. The DSF assists underprivileged and under-represented students in attending law school. As a member of the Scholarship Committee, I help review the dozens of applications received by the DSF each year. The DSF hosts a Unity Award Dinner each year which is attended by over 500 lawyers and judges. 
  • On July 12, 2022, we volunteered at the Cradles to Crayons Chicago Giving Factory.  Mike Agruss, Jim, Taylor, Jacki, and I helped sort and organize clothes for children from birth through age 12.
  • On August 9, 2022, we did a backpack giveaway at Margaret Mead Junior High School.  We are giving away 100 backpacks with supplies and water bottles to students to make sure their school year starts off on the right foot. 

Notable cases and settlements 

  • Hall v. Austin et al.: In October 2022, Plaintiff’s family was struck and killed in a head-on collision. Taylor Kosla and I obtained the defendant’s policy limit of $300,000 in three months.

This was the easiest and best experience I've experienced with a law firm. They represented me aggressively and handled my case with finesse and diligence. I highly recommend anyone who is having any issues to reach out to Mike Agruss Law Firm. They WILL take care of you.


He went above and beyond

Mike called me on the weekend to answer a question I had emailed him on a Friday I wasn't expecting to hear from him until Monday. He went above and beyond anything I could have ever expected. Not only is he a excellent attorney he is also a kind, caring and a patient person. I was truly blessed by him, his paralegal, and this law firm.


Thank you everyone!

Yes this team is incredible. They were not only professional and intelligent and thorough, they demonstrated the highest level of care and compassion for what was otherwise a really demoralizing and confusing experience. My case was long and difficult and they kept me in the loop all along the way and brought it to excellent resolution. So grateful to their team especially Rachael who took my first flustered call on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving to partner Jim who carried the case across the line. Oh, and they got a great settlement! Thank you everyone!


I can’t say thank you enough!

I was injured and tried handling things on my own with insurance. My first call it was apparent they weren’t going to help me even though I wasn’t at fault. I was referred to Mike Agruss Law and the experience made what was a nightmare turn into an easy and peaceful experience. They handled everything for me and made sure my medical bills were paid, and I was compensated for loss of wages and more. I came to them in tears, shaken up, and scared. They comforted me and took care of me and my family. I can’t say thank you enough! Thank you, Rachael Mitchell, Jackie Laino, and Ryan Platt!!
