About Paul G. O’Toole

Paul O’Toole is a third generation attorney. Many of his family members, including his wife, are engaged in the practice of law. Paul O’Toole grew up in Oak Lawn, Illinois and many of his neighbors, friends, and coaches were hard working members of the Chicago area unions. He developed his passion for representing the working people of the Chicago area against big business and insurance companies when one of his former athletic coaches was struck with an occupational disease that took his life. This tragedy created Paul’s passion to represent the hard working people of his community against corporate America. Paul began his legal career as a Judicial Clerk for the Honorable Judge James Murphy. As a law clerk, he was exposed to and participated in the largest complex cases in the Circuit Court of Cook County. After completing his clerkship for Judge Murphy, he was hired by one of the nation’s most prestigious personal injury law firms. During his tenure at the firm, he actively worked on catastrophic injury cases of the most egregious nature. Thereafter, Paul spent seventeen years as an attorney at one of the oldest plaintiff’s personal injury law firms in the city of Chicago. During his seventeen years, he served as the lead counsel on the firm’s most complex matters, resolving them through settlements or verdicts. Mr. O’Toole’s results have been consistently featured in the annual reports of the top settlements and verdicts. Additionally, his cases have been featured on many media outlets, such as Fox news with Larry Yellon. In 2010, Mr. O’Toole brought his near twenty-five years of experience to the Law Firm which bares his name, Salvato, O’Toole & Froylan.
