Elizabeth A. Kaveny is a Chicago trial attorney who has achieved great success in plaintiff’s personal injury and medical malpractice for the past 25 years. More important than any professional accolades however, is her role as a Mother of four beautiful children, the youngest two being twin girls. Her littlest ones came into the world at 27 weeks, requiring an extensive NICU stay and issues that they continue to address today. Perhaps this is the main reason why the issue of NEC, Necrotizing enterocolitis, a potential deadly condition which affects premature babies, is one she takes very seriously. While there is no single consistent cause of NEC, research and clinical observation has identified formula feeding with cow’s milk based formula as associated with an increased risk of NEC.

Elizabeth is well known and respected in the legal community for her hard work and for the outstanding recoveries obtained for her clients, both in settlements and in jury verdicts.

Elizabeth was a principal in the law firms of Propes & Kaveny and Burke, Wise, Morrissey & Kaveny. Taking the best from great mentors and trial attorneys that came before her, Elizabeth established the law firm of Kaveny + Kroll in 2019, where she and her partner, Jeffrey J. Kroll, continue their high-quality representation of victims of medical negligence, motor vehicle and trucking accidents, workplace injuries and general personal injury.
