This office serves clients in real estate transactions of all types. I also assist clients with estate planning for everyone, including the GLBT community, and represent Illinois condominium associations as needed. I help real estate investors who are renting their properties deal with difficult renter issues, and I advocate for renters dealing with difficult landlords.

I work with clients in Chicago and all over the Chicagoland area, including Wilmette, Skokie, Morton Grove, Plainfield, Wheaton, Glencoe, Lake Forest, Naperville, Oak Park, Winnetka, Des Plaines, Orland Park, Berwyn, Carol Stream, Arlington Heights, Crystal Lake, Barrington, Palatine, Park Ridge, Gurnee, South Holland, Park Forest and more.
My goal is to give each and every client personal, friendly and competent service at a reasonable price. I also strive to use technology in the best way possible to keep my clients informed.
My legal background includes working for a major Chicago developer and working for a boutique firm in their real estate division. I am also a landlord of a three flat building in Rogers Park and I am managing broker of a small real estate brokerage.
I work with all different types of clients, including developers, first-time buyers, buyers of second (or third!) homes, all sellers and the LGBTQ community. 
My real estate blog is below. Please make sure to check back on a regular basis to check out what's new. I update my blog about once a week and welcome any questions that you may have.
Ask me too about help with personal injury, divorce, and any other legal issues!

Home prices set to slide 8% this year!
Well, the bubble is bursting, folks. Or rather that's what the media wants us to think. Really, I think the market is normalizing... Crain's Chicago Business just came out with an article this week that says that home prices in Chicago dipped 5% in 2007 and are set to dip another 8% this year. Hey, 8% isn't that bad, considering in many other markets, prices have dipped MUCH lower than that. Now is a great time to buy, everyone! Home prices in Chicago have always been very high and even so, there are still areas in Chicagoland that are increasing, such as Naperville, Evanston and parts of Lakeview, Lincoln Square, Irving Park and North Center. Prices are predicted to drop another 2% or so in 2009, but I guarantee things will not look this grim forever. Real estate is a GREAT investment. It always will be.

Enjoy your big IRS checks everyone! :)
