If you need a highly experienced attorney for your matter in Court, we can help sue or defend you
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".
