About me


The son of a physician, Omar grew up
understanding the responsibility professionals owe to their clients. To
Omar, living up to that responsibility means combining a focused study
of the law, a deep commitment to client advocacy and understanding the
varied, sometimes often difficult roads his clients take in life.

Omar started on his road by studying the world over, including
attending the American University in Cairo, the Benjamin Franklin
Institute for Languages in Merida, Mexico and the London School of
Economics through Ealing College. He went on to earn his undergraduate
degree from DePaul University. DePaul is also where he earned his Juris
Doctor degree before being admitted to the Illinois Bar in 1996.

Omar's experiences abroad sharpened his legal focus on assisting the
needs of immigrants and foreign workers in the United States. The trust
and respect he built advocating for his clients resulted in frequent
requests for additional legal services. This led to Omar developing
expertise in such diverse areas as commercial and residential real
estate transactions, contracts, franchise agreements, small business
incorporation, leasing, litigation, trusts, estate planning, and
contractor law.

A life long resident of Evanston, Illinois, Mr. Khuri was elected in
2007 to the Evanston Township High School District 202 School Board,
where he fought to increase the level of education through
cost-effective measures.

Mr. Khuri is licensed to practice in the State of Illinois and is
admitted to practice before the United States Federal District Court
for the Northern District of Illinois.
