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!

Save Money and Energy With These Simple Projects

Do you have a heart attack every time you open your heating bill? There are a number of small things you can do around your home to save money and energy.

1) Get a programmable thermostat. These will lower the heat while you are sleeping or away from home. Ones like the Nest thermostat are even adjustable by an app on your phone. In cold weather, a 5 degree setback can save up to 5% of your bill.

2) Lay new insulation, or additional insulation in your attic.

3) Fasten foam or fiberglass panels to the walls of your crawlspace and cover with drywall.

4) Caulk exterior cracks around windows, doors, pipes and vents.

5) Replace windows that are faulty or old.

6) Replace old storm doors.

7) Insulate in unheated attic or basement by wrapping heating ducts with insulation.
