Trucking lawyer Jordan Lebovitz has been a vital member of the Nurenberg Paris law firm since 2013 where he has rapidly made a name for himself for his skillful and dedicated representation of his clients. Before joining the firm, Jordan served as captain of the nationally ranked Chicago-Kent College of Law Trial Advocacy Team where he developed his talent for evidence and trying cases. Since being at Nurenberg Paris he has set himself apart and found a practice area which he has become passionate about, trucking litigation.

To better help his clients, Jordan made it his personal mission to better understand the perspective of a truck driver and what it takes to operate safely, so he obtained his commercial driver’s license (CDL).

It’s not really fair to be judgmental and pick apart what a driver may or may not be doing if you don’t really know what you’re talking about. So, I figured the best way to know what I am talking about is to go ahead and get the license myself.

There are different rules of the road and expectations for those who own and/or operate a commercial vehicle. By obtaining his CDL, Jordan has gained a wealth of knowledge that is crucial for your potential case. He has applied this unique perspective to hold defendants accountable for their actions and help clients get the help that they need.

Jordan was exposed at an early age to the legal field watching his father, Nurenberg Paris Partner Jamie R. Lebovitz help the victims of large scale transportation and aviation accidents. When Jordan became a lawyer, he followed in his father’s footsteps and now they often work together to help their clients receive the justice they deserve. Jordan works to get those injured or those who have lost family in an accident or disaster money to pay for the medical care they desperately need and to help them move forward with their life. But beyond the financial aspect, one of Jordan’s greatest motivations is to help prevent similar accidents from occurring again in the future.

Testimonials:

“In September of last year, I was struck by a semi truck while riding to work.The next day I was literally flooded with attorneys wanting to represent me. After speaking to several over the next week, I was feeling overwhelmed. I was injured, not able to work, and barely able to get around. Jordan called me and asked if he could help.”Help?” I thought. None of the others mentioned helping, so I agreed to meet him. He drove to my house in Cincinnati and as we spoke, I could tell this kid really wanted to help. He explained everything to me, including things other attorneys did not, either because they were unaware or unwilling to disclose. I knew the trucking company had a major player in the insurance field with endless resources designed to protect their client regardless of the fact that their driver was listed as at-fault on the accident report. Jordan panned everything out and even gave me some free advice. I could tell by the face-to-face interaction that his passion was genuine. He left that night—yes, he drove down from Cleveland to spend time with me—and after sleeping on it, I called him and told him I needed his help. He jumped on the case like a pit bull! The best part was him letting me know what he was doing and why. I finally felt like I was getting some control over a very low and stressful time in my life. Throughout the ordeal, he kept me updated and asked my opinion on several issues and I always felt like I DID have a fighter in the ring. He doesn’t back down from anyone and truly had my back. In my heart, I believe Jordan Lebovitz truly wants to help people who believe their situations are hopeless. If you are on the fence as I was regarding legal representation, call Jordan and speak face to face with him. You’ll have the biggest, baddest dawg on the block in the ring!”
– Client

“Jordan was always hands on with the case. He fought hard for what I deserved and kept me in the loop with everything going on. His case manager was excellent. She always stayed in touch with me to check on my status.”
– Client

“Jordan was great. I’ve never had to deal with the type of situation I was in and Jordan helped me through every step of the way. Any time I had a question or needed advice on strategy, he would respond immediately with clear explanations in an expedited fashion. I would strongly recommend Jordan to anyone that went through a similar situation as I did. Thanks a lot man!”
-Client

“I researched local firms after being injured in a car accident. NPHM had received high marks and that was a big part of my decision to have them represent me. Jordan and Bridget were both great to work with. They were patient with my questions and explained the legal process when I was in unfamiliar territory. Their empathy and understanding equaled their legal expertise. I cannot imagine a finer team.”
