Background

Bruno R. Marasso is a Partner at Romanucci & Blandin, LLC where he focuses his practice helping people hurt as a result of automobile collisions, premises liability, and institutional negligence. As a trial lawyer, Bruno has successfully recovered millions of dollars on behalf of his clients through trial, mediation, arbitration, and negotiation. Bruno has also had success overturning on appeal rulings made against his clients.

Bruno is proud of the positive results he has made for every single one of his clients who have trusted him with their cases, including: a record breaking $44.7 million verdict for a man shot by an off-duty Chicago Police Officer, sustaining a traumatic brain injury and permanent triplegia; a $3.8 million settlement for a woman injured in rear-end motor vehicle collision whose prior attorney had tried to settle the case for just $300,000; a $2.225 million settlement for 53-year-old man who slip and fell on ice outside of an arena and sustained a fractured ankle that led to complex regional pain syndrome; and a $2 million settlement for two special needs children who were sexually abused by a school bus operator when they were only 3-years-old.

Bruno has also settled several additional cases for upwards of $1 million in the areas of motor vehicle and motorcycle accidents, premises liability, and institutional negligence.

In addition to his thriving practice, Bruno is an elected officer of the Justinian Society of Lawyers, current serving as First Vice President, and has served on the Assembly of the Illinois State Bar Association. Bruno is also an active member in the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association and the American Association of Justice.

As a reflection of his advocacy for his clients, he has been named as an Emerging Lawyer by Law Bulletin Publishing Company every year since 2017, a Rising Star by Illinois Super Lawyers® every year since 2018, and was named to the Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch list for 2021.

Prior to joining Romanucci & Blandin, LLC as an attorney in 2012, Bruno was a law clerk with the firm for over three years. While a law student at Chicago-Kent, he was a four-time recipient of the CALI Excellence for the Future Award for receiving the highest grades in his classes and was frequently on the Dean’s List.

Bruno lives with his wife and two sons in the Bridgeport neighborhood of Chicago, where he was born and raised. Outside of the office, Bruno enjoys working at his home office.
