What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Read Client Reviews at

New clients are invited to meet with me for a no-cost / no-obligation 30 minute consultation. Here we will discuss your legal matter and what your desired outcome is. This meeting can be in-person or by telephone, whichever is most convenient for you. From that meeting, if we decide to move forward, we will agree on next steps and the fees that will be charged for legal services.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I hold a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign and a Master's Degree from the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago. These degrees are in computer science. I received my Juris Doctor from The John Marshall Law School in Chicago. I also hold a certificate in family and divorce mediation. I have extensive corporate experience working with both internal and external clients in negotiation, deal making and dispute management. Here I have gained the invaluable skill of understanding the importance of listening and understanding the needs of all parties involved before determining the best final solution to a particular problem.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

Pricing is very dependent on your particular issue. The rates that I state here are for guidance purposes only. Once we are able to meet for a no-cost / no-obligation 30 minute consultation, if we agree that it makes sense to move forward, I will quote a price for the services that we agree on.

How did you get started in this business?

I enjoy helping people and find great satisfaction in assisting someone reach their goal. I understand that what may seem small to one person is a big deal to another. Each matter I work on is as individual as the client I work with.

What types of customers have you worked with?

All kinds. Everyone from individuals representing themselves in court to large corporations.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I particularly enjoy working with clients who need a lawyer's help to solve a particular complex problem. I recently represented a client who was in a will dispute with a relative. Rather than battling out the issue in the courtroom, we were able to reach a mutual understanding that the wishes of the deceased are of paramount importance and that they must be honored. Although this matter became less of a legal matter and more of a matter of counseling family members to a mutual understanding, it gave me great satisfaction to assist in resolving a family dispute that had been ongoing for many months.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

There is nothing wrong with doing your research before deciding on which attorney to use. Be sure that you find someone who has the necessary skill and insight to perform the tasks needed in your particular matter, but also has a personality and work ethic that you can be comfortable with.

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

A good attorney is one that will listen and be genuinely concerned with the client's matter. Before the initial meeting, it is a good idea to write down any and all questions that you may have. This can include questions such as: What does the attorney need from me? How long should this work take? What will the process be? What do you need from me?
