Being centrally located in Oak Brook, Illinois, the office is easily accessible to the different court locations in Cook County, DuPage County, Will County and Kane County.  Being a suburban lawyer I am able to offer you highly professional services at a below market Chicago based rate. 


My reputation in the community is that of an experienced seasoned attorney who always puts the interests of his client first.  I am known for handling the difficult case with many of my cases being referred to me from other attorneys who have already started the case or who choose not to take such a difficult case.  I am known as an aggressive attorney who will fight for the rights of his clients. 


I am also a trained divorce mediator who has been approved for mediation services in Cook and DuPage counties.  Utilizing the latest in legal methods and software my office will work together with you to ensure that your legal rights are protected.
