When you call the Illinois Attorney Registration & Disciplinary Commission and give a lawyer's name you should immediately know he is trouble when they know his reputation by heart.Following an accident involving my wife, we employed Vincent O'Brien to file a lawsuit for damages against the party we believed to be at fault. Mr. O'Brien agreed to take the case for 33.3% of any award, plus court fees. Mr. O'Brien had the citation thrown out of court and won an award.Shortly after the award was declared, Mr. O'Brien negotiated on our behalf to settle any liens placed on the award by doctors and insurance companies that we owed as a result of treatment from the accident. We received our share in the form of a check written out of Mr. O'Brien's account upon signing the award check. Mr. O'Brien was then, according to our agreement, to those with liens on the award their shares.We have been contacted over the past year on regular occasion by those agencies. Both state that they never received the payments Mr. O'Brien negotiated with them directly. Both also state Mr. O'Brien is no longer responding to them. As a result, my wife's credit rating has taken a hit for the unpaid debts.We have sent several emails to Mr. O'Brien, who has told us many times this past year that the checks were "in the mail" only to later find that to be a lie. When informed that I would be contacting the ARDC, Mr. O'Brien stopped all communication with us.After taking his 33.3% and court fees, Vincent O'Brien has additionally stolen over a thousand dollars from our settlement and left us with that in debt. Find someone else. This guy is going to lose his license very soon.Want to now more about Vincent O'Brien? Call the ARDC at 312-565-2320.
