Chicago Legal Series

Practice Area Focus

 

Like nearly three million other people, we work and live in the City of Chicago.  And although much of our practice focuses on Business and Employment Law, we also offer legal services and educational presentations regarding a variety of matters facing people who living and work in Chicago.

 

Security Deposits,  An Example.

 

We provide clear direction for tenants and free evaluations for their claims.

 

We apply a comprehensive understanding of contractual interpretation and residential landlord tenant laws to our clients' cases.

 

We listen to our clients and negotiate when appropriate, but litigate when needed.

 

Start through our Security Deposit portal by sending us materials, learning about the process, and asking us to screen your case by filling out our intake form.

• Renting an Apartment;

• Dealing with a Difficult Landlord;

• Starting a Chicago Business,

• Bicycle Safety and Liability;

• What it Means to Be an Independent Contractor;

Chicago Legal Series – Fee Based Services

 

It is impossible to list all the unique legal problems that Chicagoans face, but common problems we help Chicagoans address include:

 

• Landlord Tenant issues

• Parking Tickets

• Business Startup and Licensing Requirements

• Public Education Issues, including Special Education and Expulsion

• Public Utilities Issues

• Health and Disability Advocacy

 

Our fee based services regarding these problems range from providing simple advice and guidance on how navigate through administrative and regulatory matters to providing representation in administrative hearings, appealing administrative rulings, and court proceedings.

 

We enjoy when our potential clients qualify for our pro bono or lower cost representation. However please note that the nature of some cases involve deterring the opponent through having them pay the costs of litigation and our fees. In these cases, almost everyone wins (including justice).
