For over sixty-one years, Dowd & Dowd, Ltd. has been providing skilled legal counsel for its clients. This defense firm was founded in 1950 by two brothers, James and Joseph Dowd, following their service in World War II and the Korean Conflict. Their brother Michael was managing partner for twenty years until his premature passing in 1996. As an incredibly successful litigator, Michael Dowd tried over 250 cases to verdict in State and Federal Courts. Patrick Dowd, Michael's son, has continued the tradition of excellence established by those family members that preceded him, thereby ensuring that Dowd & Dowd, Ltd. remains one of the premiere defense firms serving Illinois, Wisconsin, and Indiana.
