About J

Learn J’s areas of practice.

I handle a broad range of civil litigation and general corporate matters for business entities of all sizes as well as individuals. My practice focuses on commercial litigation, construction and real estate disputes, business torts and shareholder actions, equitable claims (including proceedings for temporary restraining orders, preliminary injunctions, and permanent injunctions), general corporate matters (both for-profit and not-for-profit), employment issues, creditors’ rights and bankruptcy, appellate advocacy, commercial and residential real estate transactions, and estate planning and wealth management. I practice regularly before all federal courts in the Northern District of Illinois as well as the Circuit Court of the Eighteenth Judicial Circuit (DuPage County, Illinois), the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois, and all other collar counties immediately surrounding Cook County.

Professional, Courteous, and Attentive
I reached out to Mr. Pfeiffer concerning some matters and his office quickly got back to me and set up a convenient appointment. During the consultation Mr. Pfeiffer was very knowledgeable and concerned about my situation and provided several options to me. Although I did not retain his services, I kept his card for any other matters that may come up.
