Attorney Kenneth P. Danzinger works as an associate at Simmons Hanly Conroy. Based in Chicago, he focuses his practice on helping individuals and families impacted by asbestos-related diseases like mesothelioma.
“My job as an asbestos attorney is to help people who have been victimized through no fault of their own,” Ken said. “They have found themselves in a terrible situation, and it’s my job to help them hold corporations accountable for knowingly exposing them to asbestos.”
Ken handles all aspects of clients’ cases, from meeting with them at their homes and investigating claims to taking depositions. He has extensive experience in personal injury claims, specializing in the Federal Employers’ Liability Act claims, and has secured millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements on behalf of his clients. He has taken cases to trial in multiple jurisdictions, including Illinois, Missouri, Ohio, Montana and West Virginia.
Before joining the firm, Ken was a partner in a Metro St. Louis law firm where he specialized in Federal Employers’ Liability Act claims and worked closely with union representatives. Ken was also a Madison County Assistant State’s Attorney; he served as Assistant City Attorney for The City of Madison, Illinois; and he served as the Attorney for Venice Township.
Ken grew up in a blue collar family in Cincinnati, Ohio where his dad worked as a railroad brakeman and a union representative. Through his father’s work, Ken has a natural understanding of the challenges faced by those who have suffered occupational injuries.
“My clients and their families remind me of my own family, and I represent them accordingly,” Ken said. “I will work hard, I will be honest, and I will give them the best representation possible.”
