It was really a great advice for me as I was confused what to do next and his consultation cleared out my confusion, gave the way out and its future consequences.

Andy was nothing but accommodating, thorough, and helpful through a process that very few people are familiar with. As a tenant in Chicago that was wronged, I looked somewhere for help and came across Andy at Brabender and Chiang through google. Of course google searches for lawyers could have you end up in a tight spot with someone that you don't know or trust, but Andy is immediately likable and trustworthy due to his candidness and all of the options he gives you. Although we decided not to move forward, Andy will be the first person I call next time I'm in need of a tenants' rights lawyer due to his knowledge, patience, and responsiveness.

In summary, I would HIGHLY recommend Andy and the team at Brabender & Chiang for anything Tenant & Landlord related.
We were leasing Apartment 1 of a 2-flat, when without warning, we received notification that the Bank had foreclosed on our Landlords property and it was to be put up for sale with immediate effect. Given that our knowledge of Chicago Landlord/Tenant law was very limited, and that we were dealing with a large bank and it's attorneys, we chose Andy & team to represent us (Andy had been recommended to us.)
From our 1st consultation, to our favorable settlement just a few weeks later, Andy was extremely accommodating, responsive, informative and clear. He is extremely knowledgeable of Chicago Tenant law & the KCRO resulting in him putting the Bank, its Attorneys and its Agents firmly in their place in just a few weeks!
All this from someone we never met once during the process - Andy worked with our busy schedules, by carrying out all consultations over the phone or via email.
To say we felt satisfied with Andy's representation is an understatement.
Good work Sir

Andy is extremely knowledgeable in both the landlord/tenant and personal injury realms. He accurately and thoroughly answers questions in both areas here on AVVO, and is a great resource for any tenants or injury victims in need of legal assistance. I highly recommend him.
