Furqan Mohammed serves as Of Counsel at LaMonica & Sprague, and focuses his practice almost exclusively in the areas of personal injury (vehicle accidents, slip-and-falls, and dog bites), medical malpractice, and wrongful death, with a special emphasis on cases that involve commercial transportation, such as taxis, rideshare drivers, food delivery (gig) workers, and commercial carriers. Over the past ten years, Furqan and his team of attorneys have secured millions of dollars in settlements involving catastrophic injuries. To bolster his injury practice, Furqan is a trained mediator, has passed the Chicago Public Chauffeur License Examination, and has also passed the Illinois State Property and Casualty Insurance Examinations. These courses allow Furqan to navigate insurance policies and city regulations carefully and negotiate the best settlements on behalf of his clients.
Furqan is a widely recognized Chicago taxi industry expert, having given countless media interviews and statements to media outlets such as the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, WTTW, ABC, WGN, Crain's Business, NewsNation and NPR Radio. Furqan also has testified in the city council on sensible taxi regulations, and he was featured in his alma mater law school's Alumni Spotlight for his work with struggling taxi medallion owners in Chicago.
Furqan's value to his clients has been recognized time and time again. He has been distinguished as an Illinois "Rising Star" by Super Lawyers Magazine for seven consecutive years (2016 through 2022), identified on the Lawyer of Color's Second Annual "Hot List" for the Midwest Region, and received pro bono awards from Chicago Volunteer Legal Services (CVLS) and the Domestic Violence Legal Clinic (DVLC) for his work with the indigent South Asian (Indian and Pakistani) community and victims of domestic violence, respectively.
Furqan graduated summa cum laude from Loyola University Chicago in 2008 and magna cum laude (1st in his division) from Loyola University Chicago School of Law in 2011, where he served as the President of the Muslim Law Students Association (MLSA). Furqan frequently presents on a range of legal topics for lawyers, law students, and the general public. When his schedule permits, Furqan also works as a middle school basketball coach at his alma mater Northridge Preparatory School, a private Catholic school.
