Background

Bob Baizer serves as Partner at Romanucci & Blandin, LLC. Over the last 40 years, he has concentrated his practice in helping victims of personal injury, medical malpractice, and all forms of transportation collisions. Bob’s extensive experience handling complex damages cases has garnered numerous multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements on behalf of his clients.

Bob Baizer has been practicing law since 1972. Bob attended college at the University of California at Berkeley and at the University of Illinois in Champaign, where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in political science in 1969. In 1972, he earned a Juris Doctor degree at Northwestern University Law School, where he was a member of the prestigious Northwestern University Law Review. After working for a few years in prominent corporate law firms, he took a job as an Assistant State’s Attorney in Lake County, Illinois, where he prosecuted serious felonies, including murder and rape. In 1978 he decided to set up his own shop and began building toward working on multi-million dollar trials and settlements.

A decade later, his personal attention and focus on details earned one of his clients the then-largest medical malpractice verdict ($18.6 million) ever in the State of Illinois as well as one of the nation’s largest medical malpractice verdicts ($29.8 million). Other notable results include: a verdict of $17 million on behalf of a woman hit by a car in her driveway; a $25 million verdict in a medical negligence trial in Chicago; a $19.4 million Cook County settlement for a brain injury to an adult (following a three week medical negligence trial); and $11 million for the death of an eighteen-year-old boy who was hit by a truck.

Actively involved in his community, Bob served on the Highland Park Police and Fire Board from 2005 to 2013 and was chairman for four of those years. In 2012, Bob was appointed a Special Assistant State’s Attorney in Lake County, Illinois, serving on the Case Review Committee investigating possible wrongful convictions.
