About Us


GUNTY & McCARTHY was established in 1991 to provide quality, cost-effective defense on all matters of civil litigation.  We handle all aspects of toxic tort, construction, transportation and trucking, product and premises liability, and other tort actions as well as insurance coverage and commercial litigation.  In conjunction with our litigation practice, we serve as National Coordinating Counsel for an automotive parts supplier, General Counsel for a trucking company, and advise several small businesses. 

As an A-V rated defense firm, we are committed to providing our clients with personalized services and performance unmatched by larger law firms. Our firm environment is designed to provide you with the personal attention so often lacking in most defense firms. We work together in a team effort to resolve all matters in controversy as favorably and cost-effectively as possible, always with the best interests of our clients in mind. We have attorneys licensed in Illinois, Indiana, Missouri and various federal courts, including the Federal Trial Bar and offices in Chicago (Cook County) and Edwardsville (Madison County), Illinois (near St. Louis, Missouri).
