Dennis Rasor, passed away unexpectedly, but peacefully, on June 29, 2022 at home in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood. Born in Bloomington, Indiana, Dennis graduated Salutatorian from Warsaw Community High School and obtained a degree in economics from DePauw University, where he was a Rector Scholar, inducted into Phi Beta Kappa, and a proud member of Sigma Chi. After earning his J.D. from Northwestern University School of Law, Dennis embarked upon a long and successful career as a medical malpractice defense attorney. He started at Lord, Bissell & Brook, where he was made a partner and practiced for many years before launching the firm, Anderson, Rasor & Partners, with his colleagues, from which he retired one year ago. Dennis was a renowned trial attorney, known for his honor, high ethics, and brilliant legal mind. Over the course of his forty-eight year career, Dennis tried more than one hundred cases to verdict, earning his place as one of the leading courtroom advocates in Chicago – and the thanks and respect of his many clients.
We have lost too soon a friend, a mentor, and one of the patriarchs of our firm. And the Chicago malpractice defense bar and his many former clients have lost a stalwart and gifted trial attorney.
