Byck, both of whom share the same passion for helping those in need and forging personal relationships with their clients and their families.

Paul M. Byck is Managing Partner of Kreiter, Byck and Associates, LLC. Paul received his undergraduate degree from Michigan State University's James Madison College in 1987, and has also studied at Cambridge University in England. He earned his law degree from DePaul University Law School in 1990 and in the same year was admitted to the Illinois Bar and the Federal Bar-Northern District of Illinois. He spent his first three years in practice working for an insurance defense firm where he learned many of the legal strategies insurance companies and their lawyers use every day to escape paying out claims.
In 1993 Paul decided he would rather put his skills to work representing injured victims and their families. With his keen ability to understand complicated medical issues, it didn't take long for him to start winning millions for his clients, putting their hearts and minds at ease about their future.
Paul's areas of concentration are medical malpractice, workers' compensation, and personal injury including catastrophic injury litigation, wrongful death, product liability, automobile and trucking accidents, construction accidents, birth injuries, brain trauma, and a number of other injury related matters.
Guidance, Compassion and Trust are essential elements in a legal relationship. Paul has lectured other lawyers around the country about the importance of communicating with clients as well as the virtues of honesty, trust and compassionate guidance as the most productive and ethical way to run a law firm.

Paul has established a strong reputation in Northern Illinois for his honesty and high legal standards. His excellence in the legal field has been recognized by his clients and his peers as well as many legal organizations. He has repeatedly been awarded American Institute of Legal Counsel’s Ten Best Attorney, for his dedication, hard work and excellence, a distinction only given to .05% attorneys nationally. He is a member of The National Top 100 Trial Lawyers, whose membership is offered only to a select few of the most qualified attorneys from each state or region who demonstrate superior qualifications of leadership, reputation, influence, stature and public profile. He is also a Superlawyer, an honor awarded to lawyers who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement verified through independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations.
