About me

I have been a licensed attorney since 1994, practicing in the areas of business law, estate planning and real estate. I am a 1986 graduate of Northwestern University, and obtained my law degree in 1994 from the DePaul University College of Law. I have served on the boards of local not-for-profit corporations, was the treasurer of the Woodstock Morning Rotary Club (2005-2007), President of the Woodstock Morning Rotary Club (2008-2009) and was the co-chair of the Chicago Bar Association Young Lawyers Section Corporate Law Committee (2002). I live in Hebron with my wife Joanne and many critters -- horses, dogs, cats, chickens and ducks.


I believe that it is critical to communicate clearly with my clients. That means that I strive to return phone calls the same day, and communicate with clients using whatever method they prefer. I interact with some of my clients almost exclusively via email. Others prefer phone calls and letters. All of my clients have my cell phone number. Whatever the method of communication, I find that my clients appreciate the fact that I keep them informed of the status of their matters.
