Coyne is a highly experienced trial attorney who has represented clients in serious injury and wrongful death cases across the United States, including Illinois, New York (all five boroughs of New York City, Long Island and Westchester County), New Jersey, Florida, Ohio, New Mexico, Indiana, Wisconsin and Arizona.


His many cases tried to a jury range in diversity from wrongful death, products liability, Police Shootings/Excessive Force, medical malpractice, construction negligence, criminal and trucking/transportation to premises liability, employment/professional liability, intentional tort, traumatic brain injury, automobile and civil rights.

Since beginning his career as a trial lawyer as a criminal prosecutor in Chicago, John has focused on perfecting his ability to represent clients in the courtroom. On the plaintiff’s side, he has tried cases to a jury, where there was zero offer or a negligible offer to settle, tried to verdicts of well over a million dollars – leading to his recognition as an Illinois Super Lawyer, National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Civil Lawyers, and as a Top Legal Achiever. John practiced for several years with the highly-respected Chicago personal injury firm of Motherway & Napleton, and with an established civil litigation firm in New York City before returning to Chicago to start his own firm.

John’s ability to handle cases on behalf of those who are killed or catastrophically injured was honed by acting for many years as national trial counsel for a Fortune 500 company, when he would “parachute into” states across the country to handle wrongful death and catastrophic injury cases.
