About Christopher

Learn Christopher’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Estate planning
    I draft wills, trusts and other estate planning documents.

  2. Litigation
    I represent clients (whistleblowers) with information about fraud committed by government contractors.

  3. Family
    I draft, review and negotiate pre-nuptial, post-marital and separation agreements. I'm afraid I no longer accept cases involving child custody disputes.

  4. Business
    I assist clients with the formation and registration of small and medium family businesses.

  5. Intellectual property
    I assist clients with copyright and trademark registration; I advise clients on all matters of copyright and trademark law; I draft, review and negotiate documents related to copyrights and trademarks such as licensing agreements.

I provide representation to clients throughout Cook, DuPage and Lake counties in a variety of legal matters facing individuals, families and small businesses such as divorces, wills, incorporations, and intellectual property. I offer free consultations, low hourly fees and in some cases I may be able to help you for a fixed fee.

Helped me register a trademark for my business
Chris helped me register a trademark for my business for a very reasonable fee. He walked me through the whole process explaining each step along the way. He worked on a flat-fee basis and was very generous with his time. Chris was excellent. I highly recommend him and I'll definitely use him again.
