Jason J. Friedl named Partner at Romanucci & Blandin


CHICAGO (June 3, 2024)  Romanucci & Blandin, LLC, a national personal injury firm primarily based in Chicago, is pleased to announce that Jason J. Friedl has been named Partner at the firm.  Jason has nearly 25 years of experience representing clients on both the defendants’ and the plaintiffs’ side of complex disputes in state, federal, and appellate courts around the country. Many of Jason’s cases at R&B are headline-making and are of significant interest to members of various communities, including an active case against the Chicago Blackhawks on behalf of a former player who was abused by a coach, representation of a girl sexually assaulted on the job at the Chicago Park District and the wrongful death of Abnerd Joseph, who was a high school assistant principal shot and killed in his luxury condo building during an episode of emotional distress.

Jason represents plaintiffs who have been injured in premises liability accidents, trucking accidents, construction, and workplace accidents, and those that result from defective products. He focuses a large part of his practice on cases involving sexual violence and abuse, most often where children were harmed by serial predators. He currently represents dozens of individuals throughout the country in cases against religious institutions, scouting organizations, and schools.  Since joining Romanucci & Blandin, Jason has been instrumental in securing substantial recoveries for victims of abuse, including a $1.2 million settlement against a private U.S. boarding school on behalf of a 17-year-old male student who was groomed and abused by a female teacher more than 30 years his senior. This result is one of the largest reported settlements involving a male victim and a female perpetrator. He also helped to obtain a $4.5 million settlement for a client who was seriously injured in a trucking accident in Albany County, Wyoming.

He earned his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Arizona State University and his J.D. from Chicago-Kent College of Law. He is a member of the Illinois State Bar Association, the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, and the National Crime Victims Bar Association.

“It is with pride that we welcome Jason Friedl as Partner at Romanucci & Blandin. We value his sincere commitment to his clients, and we look forward to his continued contributions to our firm and our community,” said Founding Partner Antonio M. Romanucci.

“Jason’s years of experience on the defense side are an asset as he advocates for plaintiffs. This career milestone for him also reflects the continued growth trajectory of our firm as we pursue justice for our clients across multiple practice areas,” said Founding Partner Stephan D. Blandin.
