OUR VISION

At SBH, we work hard to
defend our clients
so they can focus on
improving healthcare for everyone.

Smith Blake Hill was started in 2015 by founding partners Mark Smith, Jenny Blake, and Thomas Hill.  Together they put their combined years of experience to work representing hospitals, physicians, and other healthcare providers in medical malpractice cases.  Since then, SBH has grown into a leading trial firm in Chicago, working at the forefront of innovation, creativity, and skill in courtrooms throughout the state of Illinois.

​Our experienced trial lawyers defend healthcare professionals, their practice groups, health care systems, and hospitals against malpractice allegations involving complex fact patterns, catastrophic injuries, and significant financial exposure.  Our attorneys fight to defeat all claims to avoid trial, but are fully prepared to go to trial when necessary.  Our winning trial record speaks for itself.

​SBH is regularly named among the best regional law firms, including a Tier 1 ranking for medical malpractice law and professional malpractice law by Best Lawyers in America in 2024.  Our attorneys are frequently voted by peer-review groups as among the best.

​SBH attorneys routinely consult with clients on risk management issues and pre-litigation matters, providing practical advice from cases we have defended.  We provide counsel to providers and facilities regarding credentialing and privileges issues as well as actions by licensing bodies and in other investigative and administrative matters.
