About Us

Hughes Law Offices is lead by attorney Andrew Hughes. Andrew has over 18 years of trial and litigation experience in the fields of toxic tort and transportation law.

In fact, Andrew spent the majority of his career defending Class I railroads, trucking companies, electrical conglomerates and brake manufacturers in wrongful death and catastrophic injury matters.  Andrew will bring that experience to bear in prosecuting your benzene claim.

Andrew has litigated and tried cases against the Midwest’s top toxic tort and transportation attorneys. In proving up your claim, he will work hand in hand with highly credentialed experts in occupational medicine, hematology, oncology, toxicology and industrial hygiene.  Through his network of partner counsel, Andrew handles benzene claims in all 50 states.

Andrew retired his defense litigator black hat in part, when he was asked a simple question by his young son: Dad, do you help people at your work?

Heeding that call, and armed with a deep understanding of the subject matter, Andrew decided to focus his drive on helping farmers, firefighters, railroad workers, oilfield workers, printers, steelworkers, rubber workers, gas station employees, lab technicians and all other workers suffering from illnesses like Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS), Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and Multiple Myeloma.

Hughes Law Offices is NOT a general practice law firm. We don’t handle car accidents, wills and dog bites. We are a toxic tort law firm dedicated to serving people sickened by exposures to benzene.

Andrew is a graduate of Loyola University Chicago School of Law, where he was a member of the Dean’s List and where he was awarded the Pro Bono Service Award for service to the community.

He is licensed to practice in Illinois and Missouri state courts. He is a member of the Federal Trial Bar for the Northern District of Illinois, and he is admitted to practice in the Wisconsin Federal District Courts.
