For both litigation matters and transactions, Tom offers clients an unwavering dedication to excellence. He prides himself on providing cutting-edge legal counsel as well. Staying abreast of legal issues and decisions for all types of employment concerns, Tom solidifies his legal prowess.
Tom knows that the complexities of litigation should not diminish a client’s ability to understand all the issues. His approach includes a high level of collaboration and continual communications between attorney and client. This approach cuts through the clutter, enabling him to clearly move forward and achieve positive results for his clients. He also is compassionate and caring in his communications with those he represents, understanding they need to put their trust in him to right the wrongs they feel they have endured. In a nutshell, you can rest assured that Tom “has your back.” Tom’s empathy and concern for his clients began well before he became a lawyer. From teaching English in Peru to serving as a mentor to children of U.S. Marines in Okinawa, Japan, Tom has shared his sensitivity and warmth with hundreds. Today, he is involved with helping young people realize their potential through the Union League Boys and Girls Club. But this ability to reach out in no way diminishes Tom’s drive to fight for his clients. In fact, it makes his resolve even stronger.
Tom Cramer has held a variety of jobs from a peanut vendor at Wrigley Field to a firefighter at Yosemite National Park. He has learned how to value a good day’s work, and his legal career continues this tradition.
As a student at the Loyola University Chicago Law School, Tom attended school at night after working a full-time job during the day. He finished law school a semester early in order to join his wife, Amy, in expanding Cramer Law Group. While he was in law school, his mock trial team reached the semi-finals in a national competition. He is a member Trial Bar of the Northern District of Illinois, the Chicago Bar Association and the American Bar Association.
