In our family law practice, our law firm understands that the manner in which matters are resolved can affect you and your children far into the future. So often, lawyers make mountains out of molehills. By that, we mean that attorneys frequently create unnecessary litigation, which ultimately costs clients more money. Whether you are involved in adivorce or child custody dispute, our Tinley Park family law attorneys take the time to get to know our clients so that we can distinguish between the issues that require litigation and those that can be settled. This approach saves our clients money and provides clients with a more efficient and effective legal experience. However, we want to advocate and litigate contested matters that are necessary without compromising our clients' best interests.
In our real estate practice, our law firm brings a wealth of knowledge to our clients as Joel Zimmerman is also a real estate broker and a former tax attorney. His vast experience in these areas makes our law firm an excellent choice to assist with your real estate needs.
Finally, our law firm also handles personal injury, medical malpractice and workers' compensation. In each of these areas, our firm, along with our co-counsel firms, takes an aggressive stance fighting for the compensation that you deserve.
