About Me

I help clients with real estate transactions, mostly sales/purchase closings of houses, condos, and small apartment buildings. I serve clients in Chicago and throughout the broader metropolitan area. In almost all circumstances, clients pay a flat fee for these services. I am a sole practitioner. Hiring my "my firm" means you hire me, not a secretary or a paralegal.
I am also an advocate for bicyclists injured in crashes caused by the negligence of others.

    I have referred several clients to Mike who were in need of a residential real estate attorney. In each case, my clients were very satisfied with the results. Mike is an excellent attorney and very service oriented. Highly recommended.
