Our History

The firm of Wise Morrissey, LLC has grown carefully and selectively throughout nearly two decades, and today we rank as one of the pre-eminent plaintiff firms not only in Illinois, but in the United States. From its beginnings, our firm has consisted of trial lawyers who know their way around the courtroom. But because we are always ready to go to court, we understand how to shape an effective settlement. David C. Wise has an unsurpassed reputation as a leading trial lawyer. In 2007, Frank Morrissey joined our firm following a career in complex product liability and commercial litigation as a partner at one of Chicago's pre-eminent defense firms.
