I am a transplanted "Yooper" (from Michigan's Upper Peninsula / the Wisconsin border),  lived in DuPage County, Illinois for about 10 years and relocated to Central Illinois in 2010.  I am married to my lovely wife of 10+ years, and have two kids, so most of my free time is spent with my family.  I also enjoy playing and watching most sports, grilling and smoking food, and music.

Highly recommend
Nate Hinch has provided me with solid advice and counsel on several legal matters for my small business. He is diligent in his research and provides honest answers...not necessarily what I had hope to hear, but an hinest assessment nonetheless. Nate is prompt is getting back to me unlike other attorneys I have used in the past where you may or may not get a response at all. I highly recommend this attorney.
