I own and run a hands-on boutique litigation firm that has been providing aggressive and effective legal representation to individuals and businesses in civil matters since 1982. I specialize in several different aspects of law including the following; consumer law, housing, real estate, commercial, and probate matters.
I am espcially proud of the extensive experience of my firm in all stages of litigation, including evidentiary hearings, admisistrative hearings, trials, appeals, and arbitrations.
My commitment to my clients goes beyond that of the trial. I have written numerous appeals, preparing both briefs and motions.
I really do enjoy what I do. A supervising Judge of Circuit Court of Cook County even refered to me as, "one of the leading practitioners in the area of Residential Landlord and Tenant Ordinance of the City of Chicago".

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
I endorse Bert Ring. Some years ago Bert found himself with a lot of work on his hands, and we worked together on mostly complex real property and landlord tenant cases. Bert's expertise, execution, and genuine concern for the clients was impressive. I see that in the time since then Bert has accumulated an impressive portfolio of published decisions.
