About Me

I work for Busse, Busse & Grasse, a medium sized firm located in the heart of Chicago. Armed with the resources that a larger firm affords, I have an ability to represent my clients and provide for the needs that their cases require. I practice throughout the entire state of Illinois and am regularly in Cook, Lake, DuPage, McHenry, and Kane counties.


 


Previously I worked for Alan H. Shifrin & Associates, LLC, a small boutique law firm located in Rolling Meadows, Illinois for almost 8 years focusing in both litgation and transactional work for both corporate and individual clients. 


 


Please call me anytime to set up a meeting for a free consulation. I will meet you at my offices in Chicago or come to you in the suburbs. Remember, I never charge for a consultation.
