About Us
Established in 1982 by Harvey A. Paulsen, the firm of Paulsen, Malec & Malartsik, Ltd., has grown from a single practitioner to five attorneys. PM&M specializes in defending individuals and businesses, both insured and self-insured, in matters arising out of motor vehicle liability, product liability, general negligence, trucking and transportation, and construction accidents. PM&M also represents insurance companies in uninsured and underinsured claims as well as insurance coverage matters. In recent years, PM&M has added the fields of general civil litigation, residential real estate, wills, trusts & estate planning and small corporate formation to complement its insurance defense practice. The attorneys at PM&M practice in all State and Federal Courts in Illinois.

With its reputation for high ethical standards and its pursuit of excellence in the practice and application of the law on behalf of its clients, PM&M has earned the confidence, trust, and respect of its clients, its peers, and the judiciary.
As PM&M continues to grow, customer service remains its top priority. We are dedicated to aggressively pursuing favorable, results-oriented outcomes on behalf of our clients. By actively listening to our clients' concerns, outlining the scope of issues involved and working closely with our clients in partnership, PM&M has developed a winning formula allowing it to craft effective, efficient strategies to achieve positive results on behalf of its clients.
