Clifford Law Offices

Managing Partner and personal injury attorney at Clifford Law Offices, Thomas K. Prindable, was featured on a Chicago Access Network Television (CAN-TV) show called Chicago Counterpoint with respected Family Law attorney, Jeffrey M. Leving. The live show allows individuals to call in during live tapings to get their legal questions answered. As a guest at Chicago Counterpoint, Prindable educated the public on legal issues and addressed questions involving personal injury, premise liability, trucking accidents, just to name a few.

One caller in particular explained how he fell on a wet floor of a supermarket and hurt his anterior cruciate ligament. Prindable discussed how a premise liability on slip-and-falls can be difficult because in order to be successful, people have to prove the defect of the surface that they were walking on and the owner of the property (or the operator or lessee) had to have had a notice of the particular defect. Prindable explained that the caller may have a cause of action and an experienced personal injury attorney would have to interview him to determine if the facts are there in order have a successful case.

The esteemed Chicago attorney also shared how he became motivated to become a personal injury attorney. He discussed how he was in the Catholic seminary for 12 years, almost becoming ordained in 1969. However, he had some “rumblings” in his heart that perhaps this path wasn’t for him. So he decided to take a year off. He knew he wanted to help society and therefore decided to go to law school with a focus in personal injury to help him accomplish his passion.

“I decided to go to law school and try to help people as an attorney,” Prindable shared on Chicago Counterpoint. “And as I went to school, I really enjoyed personal injury work and knew I could get right at people’s lives when they were really down and out.”

As a Managing Partner at Clifford Law Offices, Thomas K. Prindable is the hub for all those who initially call the law firm for help. He also administers the legal staff. The Chicago law firm consistently relies on Prindable's experience in probate matters, a critical area in tort law when the victim is deceased or disabled and requires the appointment of a guardian in a pending or anticipated lawsuit to protect the family’s interests.

“Helping people is my passion. I am thankful to CAN-TV and everyone at Chicago Counterpoint for inviting me to answer legal questions for individuals in our Chicago community,” says Prindable.

CAN-TV provides resources and channel time for Chicago residents and nonprofit groups. It has five local non-commercial channels that reach over one million viewers throughout Chicago. The show Chicago Counterpoint provides essential legal education to members of the community.
