I am a creative problem solver who started and has maintained a private law practice for over 30 years.
I enjoy working with families and business owners who seek a long-term relationship with a trusted advisor.
The most enjoyable part of my practice is seeing families and businesses grow over multiple generations. Knowing those individuals and watching them achieve their dreams and ambitions is the biggest "return on investment" for me.
Every day my practice provides me with intellectual challenge and the opportunity to meet and work with wonderful people, both clients and their professional advisors. I consider myself to be very privileged.
My wife, Karen and I live in Northbrook and have two adult children. In recent years, my avocation and leisure are cooking for my family and friends.
