My Legal Specialty Is Securing Illinois Property Rights

My law practice is dedicated to protecting the interests of my clients in real estate transactions, in zoning matters, building code Issues, municipal matters, and other contentions relating to construction, the environment, and property. I am dedicated to my work, I am dedicated to helping people achieve their goals, and I am dedicated to helping people through difficult situations.


I believe a good lawyer guides his clients carefully down the legal path they must take to achieve their goals, be it a real estate transaction, a zoning matter, or a dispute. I believe a good lawyer helps his clients avoid conflict where possible, but when conflict is unavoidable, I am a passionate advocate for my clients. My focus is always on the best end result for my clients, and many clients have benefited from my advice and counsel.
