General Practice

Our legal system isn’t always fair. However, competent representation from a trained professional can make a big difference in the quality of relief you get from the courts.

There are many ways I can save you time and trouble. I am trained to draft and interpret contracts. I am licensed to pursue claims for business transactions gone awry. Landlords and tenants can benefit from my timely legal advice. If someone owes you money, or wrongfully says you are indebted to them, I can protect your interests.

Maybe, you are involved in a commercial dispute. Maybe you have been mislead by a manufacturer’s product claims. Maybe, you hired a lawyer to protect you, and she left you high and dry because of incompetence. It doesn’t matter how you’ve been mistreated or ill advised. I am here to help.

Are you thinking of starting a business? The Illinois laws of incorporation can protect you from financial liability. However, if you make a mistake in filing, or do not follow the procedures set out in the statute, you can find that you are personally liable for damages because you weren’t properly incorporated or given the legal advice you need to be successful. I can guide you through the maze, and make sure your new business is in compliance with the laws and rules that must be followed to make it thrive.

Criminal law is a particularly important area of the law. From traffic offenses, to misdemeanors and felonies, I can help you defend your innocence, or at least make sure your guilty plea is a result of full and fair investigation and disclosure. If your child is in trouble, I will do everything I legally can do to protect him from the prosecutorial over reaching and harshness he or she can experience if braving the legal system alone.
