Elmhurst, IL



I have a passion for the law. This passion is what makes me an optimal choice to represent you in your important legal matter. 

I started practicing law as a Cook County State's Attorney in 1987. After leaving that office in 1988, I practiced at Hinshaw & Culberston, one of the largest private firms in the state of Illinois, until 1992, when I continued my legal career as a solo practitioner, so I could serve my clients on a more personal basis. 

My specific areas of concentration are family law, general civil litigation and real estate law. 

With over 30 years of experience, I have participated in a large number of administrative hearings and trials, both bench and jury, as well as numerous hearings regarding family law matters. 

Additionally, I have represented clients in hundreds of Dissolution of Marriage proceedings; thousands of real estate transactions; and many civil settlement negotiations. 

In accumulating this experience, I have honed and developed the knowledge and skill to competently, diligently and zealously represent my clients to the best possible conclusion. 

I would be pleased to discuss your legal matter with you and put my experience to work for your benefit.
