I have been practicing law in DuPage County, Illinois for 15 years, first in Addison and more recently in Winfield. My office is currently located 1 mile north of the DuPage County Judicial Center. My areas of practice include family law, real estate, estate planning, traffic, and general civil matters. I offer a half hour no cost consultation to clients seeking assistance in these areas.
Real estate attorneys deal with the many laws and practice areas associated with land ownership issues. For example, a commercial real estate attorney knows which laws apply to commercial transactions for construction/development projects (such as condo construction), or land use/zoning projects (such as subdividing a parcel of land for development), or real property issues (such as financing a large land purchase). Likewise, residential real estate lawyers help you buy a home, or prevent you from losing your home in foreclosure. They also know how residential tenancy laws work and can advise you of your rights as a tenant. With so many types of real estate attorneys, it is important to find a specialist who does the work you need.
