When people are confronted with a legal issue they want counsel immediately. I understand and take pride in being available 24/7 on my cell phone. Cell: 312-636-4807. As an attorney since 1982 licensed in Illinois and Wisconsin I have tried complex injury and criminal cases ranging from Class X Felonies, business disputes and construction death cases in Illinois and Wisconsin.
In the early years I worked for Federal Judge Nick Bua, United States Federal District Court, Northern District of Illinois from whom I learned not only Federal Procedure, but the quality of empathy, humility and that all people deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. I later worked for Chicago law firms representing insurance companies, including Hartford, State Farm and the Illinois Insurance Guaranty Fund, in construction, aviation, medical malpractice, trucking transportation accidents and work injuries.
I now focus my practice on representing clients in personal injury, wrongful death and criminal and DUI defense. The firm also represents pilots in FAA and NTSB matters and police officers in claims involving State and Federal liability, including criminal and DUI defense.
