    Litigation

 I began practicing law in 1983. I am licensed to practice in the following jurisdictions:

  • United States Supreme Court;
  • United States Tax Court;
  • United States District Court, Eastern District of Michigan;
  • United States District Court, Northern District of Illinois;
  • State of Illinois Supreme Court 

Let me start by saying that I am a sole practitioner who has worked in the past in small firm settings, in middle size firms and a very large government organization delivering legal, accounting and administrative services to the public.

​It is that experience plus a basic knowledge of the speed at which technology has advanced that has forged in me a vision of my firm to be small, highly flexible and responsive and to be quickly reactive to the needs of each client and to the changes in technology.

I believe that being small and flexible allows me to best serve my clients.

A key benefit to my clients produced by keeping my office partially virtual or even someday completely virtual is that I will not just meet the fee arrangements of similarly experienced attorneys who have the traditional overhead of brick and mortar locations but minimize what they charge while still giving superior service.

Consultation
I posted a question and gave a brief summary of what I was going through at the gym I worked out at. Mr Talarico contacted me and gave me a free consultation and although it was supposed to be for 15 minutes, he talked to me at least 30. He gave good advice and was very polite and professional. I am very pleased with the information given.

Hard to communicate with Attorney
Hired him on my lawyer and working with him over two years. It is my first time to have a litigation with company and my case is on pending due to Mr. Talarico dropped from my case. Flashback working with him, I have not get proper explaination what is the litication step in court process and why I need to pay his extra cost request. If you are the person who has not have experience on sue case, I would like to advise to go with other attorney on your case.
