For over two decades our team of attorneys has provided a wide array of legal services to residents throughout the Chicago area including Cook, Lake, McHenry, DuPage and Will Counties. We understand that local residents can face a myriad of legal challenges, and so we offer a wide range of support no matter what needs you have. Our practice areas include:
Personal injuries can take many forms. Whether the harm is caused by ATV or auto accidents, defective medical devices, medical malpractice, animal attacks, food poisoning, or something as simple as a slip-and-fall, we will work to ensure that you receive what you deserve under the law.
Workers’ compensation is a state-supported insurance program that allows employees to receive compensation for job-related injuries and illnesses. Workers’ compensation not only pays hospital bills and medical expenses, but also covers disability payments, education vouchers for retraining, and rehabilitation costs.
If you have been injured by an accident in the workplace, if you have a stress injury like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, or if you suffer from a workplace illness like sarcoidosis, you may have a right to worker’s compensation benefits. Our firm fights for those with new claims and old claims alike. If you have already filed a claim, but have not received the full amount of your benefits, we will work tirelessly on your behalf.
Bankruptcy is a legal process where individuals and companies can eliminate some or all of their debt under the administration and safeguard of a bankruptcy court. Our firm can help you file for Chapter 7, Chapter 11, and Chapter 13 Bankruptcies. Chapter 7 Bankruptcy can be filed by both individuals and businesses to pay down unsecured debt through property liquidation, and in return, most of the unsecured debts that go unpaid will be released. However, not everyone can file for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. In some instances, if you qualify for a repayment plan under Chapter 13 Bankruptcy you must use that instead.
Chapter 11 Bankruptcy
can be used by companies and businesses to reorganize their expenditures and debts if they fall behind.

Similarly, our firm can also help modify loans to obtain more favorable terms and provide information on whether your lender complied with state and federal mortgage laws.
