Our Illinois based law firm is founded on the basic principle that it is the careful application of your specific circumstances to the relevant laws that allows us to determine the most practical, efficient, and ethical way of resolving your legal issues. It is because of this philosophy that over 90% of our business is built on referrals.

 

Good legal representation comes not only from technical competence, but also from dedicated service to others. Each year we dedicate time to community service, public issues, and volunteer legal work. We work hard to improve the quality of life for our clients, our community and our families.

 

Our areas of practice are focused on civil litigation, real estate law, international trade law, business law, construction law, lender services, insurance law, lending services and mortgages, criminal, estate planning, bankruptcy, and other related fields. While most of our representation is based in Chicago-land circuit and federal courts, we frequently handle matters in district courts in locations such as Skokie, Rolling Meadows, Maywood, along with numerous DuPage County and Lake County courts.

 

With Polish and Spanish speaking associates, we have represented not only our local community, but also international and out of state clients with the assistance of local counsel as needed. Should your legal needs fall outside the scope of our expertise, our office works with a network of experienced attorneys who are available to assist you.

 

In most legal cases, a delayed reaction or improper disclosure of information can lead to additional difficulties. We strongly recommend you discuss your legal matters with an attorney, prior to taking action or providing information that can potentially be used against you. While this is not uniform for all cases, we believe it is always better to invest in preparation prior to execution.

 

Thank you in advance for your consideration. We look forward to addressing your legal needs in the near future.

HIRE ADAM
I have known Adam for over 15 years and have helped and guided me wisely whenever I needed legal advice. He helped us when we encountered so many building issues with our brand new home years ago. His knowledge of the law and his responsiveness resulted in a great settlement with the builders. He helped me start my own business 10 years and stirred me in the right direction and among other advice, he rendered throughout the years. I highly recommend Adam and not only he is a brilliant lawyer, but he is also a lawyer with a heart.

Brilliant, hard-working, and practical attorney!!!
A true professional with a very practical approach. Mr. Lysinski’s broad knowledge of the law, even outside of his specialty, is most impressive and helpful. Combined with the fact that he is the most straight forward and honest attorney I ever hired (and I had a lot of attorneys), he is now an essential part of all my real estate and business dealings. I recommend him to every business owner without any reservation.

We finally found an attorney we can trust.
Honest, skillful, and caring attorney that focuses not only on the results, but also the practicality of the case. Mr. Lysinski’s wide area of expertise allowed me and my family to finally resolve our legal issues, and at the fraction of the cost that other attorneys proposed. We finally found an attorney we can trust.

A gentleman and a scholar!!!
Mr. Lysinki's ability to recognize all legal issues and implement a legal strategy that globally addresses the client’s overall financial state is truly remarkable. What is equally impressive is the high level of integrity that is present in every step. Mr. Lysinski is the most honest and capable attorney I have ever worked with. His office is well organized, the associates were very polite, my phone calls were return the same day, my legal matters were resolved correctly on the first try, and my invoice was way below the downtown prices that I used to pay. I give my highest recommendation, which has been truly earned.

A very talented attorney that is honest and hard working
After taking over an hour and a half to review my financial situation, Mr. Lysinski gave me great legal advice at absolutely no cost to me. Not only did he explain my current legal options in plain terms, but was also kind enough to point legal considerations that might occur in half a year, and in even two years down the line. This is truly a very talented attorney that is honest and hard working. It is clear that Mr. Lysinski has his client’s best interest in mind. I highly recommend him to anyone with financial or real estate questions.

Best attorney for anyone with business and real estate problems.
When I first met Mr. Lysinski, I started with three cross collateralized mortgages, and UCC filings against my equipment. I had a business, a commercial property, and residential property at risk. Mr. Lysinki took the time carefully review my situation, and prepared a plan to address not only my current legal issues but also to minimize future risk. Mr. Lysinski has tremendous grasp on the applicable laws, and was able to incorporate both practical and economical factors into his recommendation. He is truly a very capable and honest professional that takes pride in his work.
