Lisa M. Green is a recent addition to the ARP team.  She brings more than 30 years of trial practice and over 25 years of medical malpractice defense litigation experience.  Lisa began her career in the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office and the Oakland County (Michigan) Prosecutor’s Office where she gained invaluable bench and jury trial experience prosecuting criminal cases.  In the mid-1990’s, she entered private practice in Detroit, devoting her professional time almost exclusively to the defense of medical professionals accused of negligence.  Since coming to Chicago in 1998, she has defended and closed complex claims of medical negligence against physicians, physician practices and hospitals.  She has successfully tried numerous cases to verdict in the Circuit Courts of Cook, Lake and DuPage Counties.

“Every claim presents its own unique opportunities for defense,” says Lisa.  “It may be factual, legal or medical.  It is the job of the defense lawyer to exploit the facts, law or medicine to her client’s best advantage.”

Ms. Green received her law degree from Temple University School of Law in 1987.  She holds an undergraduate degree in history from Drew University.  She is admitted to practice in Illinois, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois and the U.S. Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit and holds (inactive) licenses in Michigan and Pennsylvania as well.  She serves as volunteer panel counsel for JUF Evelyn R. Greene Legal Services.  Ms. Green is a member of the Society of Trial Lawyers and the Illinois Bar Association.
