Randy got the job done and fast!
This review is almost 2 years late, thought I did this but life took over. The fact that I still remember the experience I had hiring Randy and regret not posting this review sooner says a lot about him. I spoke with several lawyers about breaking a lease in Chicago before calling Randy. Each of them made me feel that I little chance of a positive outcome so I was nervous after speaking with Randy because what he said was so radically different from the others. He got me out of my lease and money back. Thanks to Randy I almost forgot about the ugly circumstances surrounding this matter and quickly got on with my life. I highly recommend hiring Randy, especially if you are feeling discouraged regarding your issue.

Hire Randy Weinstein!
Randy Weinstein proved to be knowledgeable, responsive, trustworthy and very good at handling my complicated dispute with a previous landlord. He has excellent negotiation skills in addition to understanding all legal aspects of landlord/tenant issues. I recommend him without hesitation.

Settled my car accident case fast and for more than I was expecting
I hired Randy after being hit by another vehicle in a car accident. Randy always answered my calls and was quick with updates as my case progressed. With his help, I settled with my insurance company for much more than I thought I was going to. Plus, all my medical bills were paid for! Thank you Randy

Great strategic lawyer!
We contacted Randy when we were in a landlord tenant dispute and we were seeking to be released from our lease. He recommended a very smart course of action, and he was honest with us about the challenges that we would face. Randy's legal advice turned out to be a life saver- we were able to negotiate an agreement to get released from our lease and we had our security deposit returned back to us.

Got landlord/tenant trouble? HIRE THIS GUY
Trust me; I'm an attorney. No, seriously, I am. And a litigator at that. And not a new one either. So- I thought that I knew what I was dealing with regarding my jerky landlords (seriously- there's history) and my bad situation in having to leave town 2 weeks after signing a new lease on that overpriced Edgewater condo- because I can read the Chicago LLT Ordinance. WRONG. I almost drove myself into a nervous breakdown and ruined my relationship over the stress of the situation - I'm not exaggerating- before I called Randy. Boy did I ever learn a BIG lesson in humility - and another big one about how to be a better lawyer. Because Randy is a good lawyer. Better standard of practise than most I've worked with personally and as a client I am 150% satisfied. In support of this assertion I offer the following personal observations: Exhibit A: Excellent client contact skills. To whit: 1- first phone call was returned within 5 minutes. He listened to my freak out, understood all the nuances and said "We can fix this." And did. 2- from signing a contract, submitting a retainer and sharing documents, he was available to ask questions and responded by phone or email within 24 hours (usually under an hour.) 3- he handed over his cell phone- AND ANSWERED IT. Once I called at 7:30 expecting to get voice mail and he answered. Exhibit B: Fast, efficient, positive results 1- He walked us through the options and executed our decisions immediately. 2- He got us our deposit AND damages back for the crazy bs that we origially weren't even aware of. 3- Check, please. Days after judgement= paid. Have I covered everything? Hm. IMHO, he's also a nice guy. Do yourself a favor, hire this dude. I wish we had sooner. Don't let that happen to you. When your plumbing screws up, do not get out a wrench, call a plumber. When you have landlord trouble, no not write letters, call Randy.

Thanks Randy!
I contacted Randy regarding my pending foreclosure eviction. he was very experienced in the matter as he has worked on both sides of tenant law. He thoroughly explained all my options, even the ones that did not require me to retain his service. I highly recommend him

Great experience with CRLTO early lease termination.
Straight forward. Worked with me as I couldn't afford upfront costs. Diligent. Good settlement. I can recommend him highly.

 Randy was very professional. He also explained my case so I had a full understanding of the process. As for my case it far exceeded my expectations. I definitely would recommend Randy to a friend.

"Mr. Weinstein has demonstrated amazing talent in several complex real estate matters that we have worked on together. He has extensive knowledge of the Chicago Residential Landlord Tenant Ordinance and the Condominium Property Act. His experience as a licensed real estate broker with a background in finance proved its value daily when I worked with him. He shows great subtlety of thought and analysis, which are two characteristics that I believe to be critical for a Real Estate attorney in Chicago. I believe that Mr. Weinstein practices in one of the most analytically challenging areas of the law and he unequivocally grasps the requisite discipline to excel."
