A top litigation firm, Borkan & Scahill also has a specialty representing municipalities and government entities. The City of Chicago trusts them with many of its toughest and most high-profile defense work. They are especially renowned for their strong defense of the police in excessive-force cases, including, e.g. shootings and allegations of inappropriate use of Tasers.

Combining unquestioned integrity and the highest-quality trial skills, Borkan & Scahill lawyers provide vigorous and ethical defenses to complex cases that are often square in the media’s lens.

In the newly design WordPress website we designed and developed for them, illustrations by courtroom sketch artists connect the lawyers visually to their core trial work.  The unique horizontal scrolling parallax feature shows the lawyers moving in 3D in front of the trial backgrounds.
