I am passionate about helping families solve the problems that keep them up at night. I have a wonderful wife Katie, three adult children, three beautiful grandchildren and one more on the way. I live in Riverwoods with Katie and our dog Buster who we rescued from the Anti Cruelty Society in 2007.
I love studying history and World War 2 is a huge part of my life. I have visited Normandy France five times and took a group of seven friends as a private tour in 2012 and am planning another in October of 2014.
I love pets and have helped many of my clients provide for their people and pet loved ones as well.

Gary brings a a great combination of professional skills, experience and compassion to every case I have had the pleasure of collaberating with him on. As an Attorney and a CPA, Gary's perspective is broader and more far reaching than most other practitioners. Gary also brings a warmth and sense of humanity to his clients. I strongly endorse Gary Waitzman.
