I focus my practice in commercial litigation and have achieved an “AV/Preeminent” rating, the highest possible rating, among my peers for legal ability, professional reliability, diligence and ethics. I have also acheived a "10.0 Superb" AVVO Rating. I am an active contributor to the DuPage County Bar Association holding the position of Past President for my term in 2010-11, I have also served as President of the DuPage County Bar Foundation in 2011-12 and remain a member of its Board. I am also an active Board Member of the College of DuPage Foundation serving on its Executive Commitee and as Chairman of several committees. Since 1989, I have devoted by career to serving as general counsel to many small to mid-sized local businesses and have developed a reputation (that I am proud of) for building long term relationships by providing sensible legal advice. My belief is that litigation should be avoided, if possible, and in those rare instances where it cannot, it must be undertaken with a specific strategy tailored to each case and each client.
