Real Estate

Chicago property investment can be a remunerative enterprise. But, developers and purchasers of both commercial and residential property need sound legal advice from a thorough attorney who understands real estate transactions. We can assist with:

  • Writing and reviewing contracts;
  • Resolving title issues; and
  • Completing real estate closings.

Landlord / Tenant / Condominium

Whether you manage a large commercial development or own a small residential complex, we can help you draft leases, deal with disputes with tenants and unit owners, pursue evictions, collect judgments and association dues, and deal with many other landlord/tenant/condo association issues. Our firm has helped landlords and associations navigate the complexities of hundreds of Chicago and suburban evictions (both residential and commercial). We have a thorough understanding of the eviction process and can assist you in obtaining an eviction as quickly as possible under the current law.


Illinois contract law encompasses a great deal of issues. It is important to have the assistance of an attorney that understands the vastness and complexities of Illinois contract law. We can assist clients with a variety of contract issues including those outside the area of real estate law. Our firm has experience dealing with cases that involve breaches of promissory notes and other contracts. Our seasoned Chicago contract dispute lawyers can help you design, negotiate and enforce contracts.


Collecting money is one of the more challenging tasks of litigation. Winning a judgment is often just half the battle. Due to bankruptcy and other debtor protections, judgment debtors are often uncollectible or in such a position that makes a creditor collection effort costly and impractical. We can advise you as to the likelihood of success in a collection action. In cases where a collection effort is advised, we can help you proceed with the appropriate application of remedies such as wage deductions or citations to discover assets.
