Frank A. Sommario had just completed law school and was about to start his career as a workers’ compensation lawyer when he suffered a crushed ankle in an accident. After a brief delay and months of rehabilitation, Frank began his new job. Today, you’d never know he had an accident that could have left him with a permanent disability. He is not only fully recovered, but was compensated for his injuries, thanks to an attorney he knew only in passing. Antonio Romanucci successfully represented him in a lawsuit.
Frank served as counsel to Antonio’s law firm in workers’ compensation matters before joining the firm full time in 2007. As a petitioner’s workers’ compensation lawyer, he vigorously fights for the rights of his clients, and has obtained several large settlements and favorable trial awards for those who have been injured. He considers it a privilege being able to help injured workers get the benefits they deserve.
For his successes representing injury victims, Frank has proudly been named one of The Best Lawyers in America© for 2017. Impressively, he has also been named as one of Illinois’ Super Lawyers for 2017 and 2016, and one of Illinois’ Rising Stars by Super Lawyers® for the years 2010-2015. Additionally, he was named a Leading Lawyer by Law Bulletin Publishing Company’s Leading Lawyers Division for 2017 and 2016. In 2015 he was named an Emerging Lawyer by Law Bulletin Publishing Company. Sommario was also named to Law Bulletin Publishing Company’s “40 Illinois Attorneys Under 40 to Watch for 2012.” Frank worked as a law clerk for the Illinois Attorney General’s Office and was an accountant-consultant for the Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County while in law school. He is a certified public accountant as well as a registered investment advisor.
