About me

I have been an Attorney and blogger for over 20 years. Find articles, posts, and podcasts written by me on blogs as well as, Westlaw, and LexisNexis. My undergraduate career was split between the University of Chicago and University of Michigan where I earned a BA with Distinction from the Honor's College and an MBA from the Ross School of Business. I also worked my way through DePaul University College of Law where I received an American Jurisprudence Award in Professional Responsibility. I am president of the law firm I started in 1995.  I have also held Series 7 and 63 licenses, a business broker's license, and am a title insurance agent.  I am a member of several professional organizations including the American Bar Association, Will County Bar Association, and DuPage County Bar Association where I chaired several committees and received a Board of Directors' Award and edited the Bar Journal. I have also been honored as Lawyer of the Year and Bankruptcy Lawyer of the Year twice. I was honored to serve on the campaign of Judge Dorothy French of the 18th Circuit. Thank you for taking time to learn about me. If you have any questions please feel free to contact my office. I look forward to speaking with you.
