Mr. Marderosian began his practice with a mid-sized Chicago law firm where he won numerous solo jury verdicts defending against personal injury claims arising out of auto and premises accidents. He then worked with a large Chicago firm, continuing his solo and co-counsel jury trial success in complex injury defense, professional liability, commercial litigation, and related appeals of trial court decisions and verdicts.

Mr. Marderosian then joined a mid-sized boutique Chicago law firm where he expanded into general counsel business representation. He focused his practice in corporate law, business contracting and consulting, and a full spectrum of commercial and business litigation including real estate, unfair business practices, finance, trade secrets, and other intellectual property matters, as well as appeals of trial court rulings.

Mr. Marderosian then moved his practice to Wheaton where he joined the partnership of one of the largest law firms in DuPage County, Clingen Callow & McLean, LLC.

Mr. Marderosian’s approach to performing legal services is simple: Provide clients with decades of big Chicago and mid-sized law firm experience with the close and personal attention only a small firm can provide. He becomes not only an advisor to business and personal clients, but also their partner in addressing legal issues and solving problems.
