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!

Allergies? Asthma?
An article in a recent newsletter from the Realtor Association of Northwest Chicago that I am a member of talks about air purifiers and their benefits to those with allergies and asthma which I found interesting.

The University of Cincinnati Journal of Environmental Science and Technology, January 2007, shows that all air purifiers are not the same. The purifiers that use Active-Pure technology inactivate about 90% of the airborne microorganisms, viruses and spores.

A University of Kansas studay also shows that the Active-Pure technology is superior to the conventional central HVAC system with a rating 8 filter. After 24 hours of exposure, the Active-Pure technology was able to inactivate 96.4%-100% of the pathogens in the air.

Keep in mind that these air purifiers not only relieve ashthma and allergy symptoms, but also leave your home smelling fresh at all times.

You can get more information at www.activepure.com.

Ever lost your PDA???
Just read about a service that is a lost and found for your Blackberry, Treo, iPhone or other PDA.

A Silicon Valley-based company called Global Lost & Found Inc. will give you a label with an ID number and an 800 number to call to put on your device. If someone finds it and returns it, using a pre-paid mailer, they'll be rewarded with a gift card.

The one time fee ranges from $7.95 to $24.95.

You can find them on the web at

Happy Mother's Day all you Moms out there!
