About Me

The firm’s founder and principal, Kevin Case, has a unique combination of legal experience, superior legal credentials, and a background in the fine arts that makes him particularly qualified to understand the needs of classical musicians and fine arts clients.

    I had the privilege of working with Kevin Case at one of the largest law firms in Chicago as well as at a smaller arts law firm, and I am happy to endorse him without any reservations. Kevin's background in high profile legal matters combined with his extraordinary career as a professional violinist make him the ideal attorney for classical music and other arts clients.
