Victor F. Ciardelli


Victor F. Ciardelli is the founding member of Ciardelli, Cummings & Campagna LLC and has set the philosophy, the standard of success, and the level of dedication employed in every case handled by our firm.

As one of the most accomplished trial attorneys in the Chicago area, Mr. Ciardelli has amassed hundreds of courtroom victories involving major cases in the Federal and State Courts. As a criminal defense attorney, he has accumulated an extensive list of “Not Guilty” verdicts in both the Federal courts system and in criminal courts across the State of Illinois.

With a total commitment to each client he represents, Victor Ciardelli holds a reputation for unsurpassed preparation and advocacy. His courtroom skill applies equally to clients seeking recovery for losses in major and complex cases in the Illinois State Courts.

"I started this firm in order to provide individuals and businesses with real access to real advocacy."

Victor Ciardelli's relentless pursuit of justice for his clients has resulted in millions of dollars in trial victories and settlements in a wide array of cases. He led the CC&C trial team to victory recovering $1.9 million for a client victimized by embezzlement. He won a $4 million judgment for a client in a dispute over ownership of a Florida apartment building. In another case, when the City of Chicago tried to shut down several motels, which would have deprived their owners of millions in value, Mr. Ciardelli took on the case, fought for those owners, and kept their motels open.

Mr. Ciardelli's exceptional ability to persuade both Judges and Juries has resulted in outstanding recoveries on personal injury cases, breach of contracts, and other cases where our clients were threatened with devastating financial losses.

Honesty, skill, and the recognition that every client deserves his Lawyer's passionate commitment to justice are the virtues Victor F. Ciardelli provides our clients and why clients continue to retain Ciardelli, Cummings & Campagna LLC as their attorneys.
