I have dedicated most of my life to the law. I was a police officer for over 23 years. While I was a police officer, I went to law school at night, graduated and passed the bar. Admitted to the Illinois Bar in 2004, I have been practicing in the area of real estate, estate planning, and municipal prosecution. After I retired from law enforcement, I added Criminal Defense to my list of practice areas. My unique background as a former officer and prosecutor makes me a valuable asset in any criminal case. With 15 years of experience in real estate, I have handled numerous residential real estate transactions for buyers and sellers alike. If you have concerns in planning for your family's security and your legacy, I can discuss your estate planning options, from wills to trusts. I look forward to helping you resolve your legal needs.
