Injuries & Wrongful Deaths

  • Cases that we handle include but are not limited to the following – car and truck accidents, brain injuries, wrongful death, medical malpractice, slip and falls, dog bites, workers’ compensation, and nursing home abuse and neglect. We offer a FREE initial consultation and we are paid through the settlement or judgment you receive, so you only pay us when you recover.

Traffic/DUI/Criminal Defense

  • You have constitutional rights that we can help you protect.  We know how frustrating and embarrassing it can be to be charged with a crime. Without the right attorney, you’re likely to become a victim of the legal system as the government attempts to take away some or most of your basic rights.
  • We can represent you in traffic, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI), municipal, misdemeanor, and felony cases.  You can count on us to go the extra mile because we have over 40 years of legal experience in the courtroom dealing with these types of cases.

Family Law

  • Trust delicate family matters to us.  Making the choice to involve your family in the legal process is a difficult one. However, sometimes it is necessary in order to maintain the happiness and wellbeing of everyone involved. Sometimes our legal system complicated and confusing.  New laws were passed in 2016, so let us guide you through this trying time.
  • Our family law services include but are not limited to document drafting, negotiating, mediating, and conducting trials for divorce, child custody, child support, legal separation, visitation, adoption, and grandparents’ rights.

Adoption

  • Adoption can be a complex and time-consuming process. A successful adoption requires careful planning and professional guidance through Illinois adoption law. Our goal is to provide service with compassionate, cost-effective and successful representation in one of the most important events of our clients’ lives.  We represent adoptive parents in all kinds of adoptions – agency, independent, step-parent, adult, and foster care.

Nursing home abuse/neglect

Placing an elderly loved one in a nursing home or assisted living facility can be a heart-wrenching decision. Although we would like to think that the people with whom we entrust their care will provide the same standard of care we would give, it is often not the case.  Please contact us if your loved one has been abused or neglect and let us hold those responsible for what has occurred.

Wills/Trusts/Estates/Probate

  • We know it can be difficult to consider what will happen to your assets after your passing, but it is absolutely necessary to think about protecting your assets and having your wishes fulfilled if something happens to you.  No matter how old you are, what stage of life you are in, or the value of your assets, it’s important to have attorneys provide you with estate services.
  • We provide the following services to give you and your family greater peace of mind:
    • Wills, trusts, estate planning, probate litigation, real estate transactions, personal property planning, living wills, irrevocable trusts, revocable trusts, special needs trusts, power of attorney for property, and power of attorney for healthcare.

  • We currently represent multiple cities, towns, districts, townships, and local government entities, such as park districts, fire districts and water districts.  We have firsthand experience in municipal law, granting us a sophisticated understanding of the way legal issues impact the operation of a city, town, or district.

Banking

  • We represent local and regional banks in secured and unsecured financing transactions, foreclosures, and collections.  We have performed complicated due diligence document review and helped our banking clients during negotiations and settlements on complicated financial transactions.

Real Estate Transactions & Litigation

  • We have represented many clients, in real estate foreclosures, deeds in lieu of foreclosure, loan modifications, short sales, real estate sales, real estate leases, and partition actions. Due to the complex nature of real estate law, it is desirable to obtain skilled legal counsel.
