Whether you are a first time home buyer or an experienced investor, our attorneys are here to help you navigate your transaction with confidence and peace of mind.
We make sure that you are comfortable through every step while we protect your interests and ensure your transaction runs smoothly.
Commitment to Accessibility
Our team understands that real estate is one of the biggest investments you will make in your lifetime. The process of buying or selling can be stressful so we are committed to being accessible and available to our clients.
We provide the same attention to detail to your real estate transaction as we would to our own.
Our firm offers all facets of real estate legal services, but our staff has experience in business transactions, estate planning, litigation and other areas of law that may be valuable to your family or business in connection to your property transaction or separately.
We are engaged and ready to learn about you as a homeowner, business owner or investor so we can best provide valuable insights and guidance for the transaction and beyond.
We are skilled at more than just real estate law and our ability to think beyond the transaction adds value for our clients.
Residential Real Estate Transactions
We lean on our experience to spot issues, negotiate favorable outcomes, and handle your real estate transactions with ease. Whether you are buying or selling a single-family home, condominium, or investment property, analyzing whether to buy or sell a short sale property, or negotiating a construction contract to build or remodel your home, we will guide you through the process while arming you with the technical knowledge and practical advice you need.
Commercial Real Estate Transactions
We regularly assist clients with the purchase, sale, leasing, and financing of commercial real estate.
We believe property owners would benefit from being as mindful of the assessment value of their property as they are of the interest rate on their mortgage. We believe it is important that our clients have continuing access to counsel well-versed in property tax laws, procedures, and polices on both the local and state levels to help minimize their exposure to tax increases.
Any investment in real estate should come with an eye for asset protection. Our attorneys draft and negotiate the necessary documentation needed to acquire and dispose of property while mitigating legal exposure, including entity organization, operating agreements, business contracts, and the like.
While most people would like to leave their assets to their heirs in the easiest and most efficient way possible, many are often unsure about how to proceed or are unaware of mechanisms to safeguard against property, among other assets, being distributed through probate. Probate is a costly and time-consuming legal process whereby a court oversees the distribution of an estate. We believe it is important that our clients have access to counsel for estate planning measures appropriate for their situation.
Monetization of Debt
Our collection practice serves a diverse clientele ranging from finance companies looking to monetize delinquent accounts to corporate clients looking to monetize receivables.
We work with you to determine the collectability of your debt and what steps make sense for your situation. If initial attempts to collect fail and debtors are still unwilling to pay voluntarily, or if we cannot make acceptable payment arrangements, we will guide you through the many legal options available to you, including litigation. From demand letters through post judgment collection strategy, we work to maximize recovery for our clients.
We represent clients in all six districts of Cook County as well as DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry and Will Counties.
