After graduating from Wheaton Academy, I served four years in the U.S. Navy. Upon return from military service, I earned my bachelor’s degree from the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana, and my law degree from Loyola University Chicago. My practice includes the following areas of law:
– Estate Planning
Whether it is a simple Will or a comprehensive estate plan involving one or more revocable trusts and other planning measures, such as powers of attorney for health care or living wills, I will tailor make an estate plan for you. I truly enjoy seeing my clients experience peace of mind in knowing that they and their loved ones will be taken care of according to their wishes.
– Probate and Trust Administration & Litigation
When a person dies, their surviving loved ones often have to navigate through probate court. This can be a stressful experience. I will guide you along the way so that you understand each step and pass through as quickly and painlessly as possible. If disputes arise (for example, disputes between the executor and the beneficiaries of the estate) I can be your advocate to make sure that your rights are protected to the fullest extent of the law and bring the dispute to an end.
– Real Estate
I have extensive experience in real estate litigation and real estate transactions, including residential and commercial sales, leases, breach of contract claims, title insurance coverage matters, fraud claims, and landlord tenant disputes, including evictions. Because I am a litigation attorney and not just a transactional attorney, I can foresee many potential problems before they arise and help you avoid litigation. This is an immeasurable benefit to my real estate clients.
– Civil & Business
I have extensive experience advising individuals and businesses on contracts, business formation and dispute resolution strategies, including the prosecution and defense of civil and business litigation matters. My goal is to resolve disputes quickly and efficiently, preferably before litigation is filed in the courts. If litigation is required, however, I will prosecute or defend on behalf of my client to the fullest.
