“Phil Corboy Jr. of Corboy & Demetrio, a prominent personal injury law firm in Chicago … credits Margolis [Director of the Autopsy Center of Chicago] with providing an answer [to the family] sensitively and quickly….  ‘Ben [Margolis] is probably the top expert in Chicago….’”

Complete Time Out Chicago review (March, 2012): 


“Dr. Ben Margolis presented his acclaimed presentation on medical autopsies (which currently runs at Gorilla Tango Theater in Bucktown).” -Chicago Journal

Complete Chicago Journal article:


"The A.V. Club went to one of the good doctor’s early presentations and came away thoroughly squicked out and enchanted with all the new stuff we learned....[The class] makes death seem soft, quieter, or even a little more understandable.  " -AV Club Chicago   (April, 2012):


"...really fascinating, and Dr. Margolis does a great job of explaining....This lecture explores issues I didn't anticipate....If you're not particularly squeamish, naturally curious, and want to experience something far outside the realm of everyday life, I recommend this lecture"  - M.S. (attendee)

"...very informative and educational....Highly recommend!" - A.L.D. (attendee)

"...very graphic and incredibly informative, yet discrete and dignified." - J.D. (attendee)
