Litigation


We represent businesses and individuals in bench and jury trials, appeals, administrative hearings, arbitrations, mediations, municipality and governmental forums.  We regularly appear in all circuit courts throughout Illinois, including Cook, DuPage, Kane, Will and Lake County, as well as the United States District Courts.  We have frequently been selected to assist large firms in multiple party litigation situations where additional counsel may be necessary or serve as local counsel for out-of-state firms.  We have also been admitted to practice in numerous state and federal courts around the country on behalf of our clients.  

We have long experience in diverse litigation often referred from attorneys and firms throughout the United States. While most firms devote all their time, and your money, to working a case, we have learned that litigation in any form is wasteful.  The courts are a last resort, and only to be used when the benefits clearly outweigh the costs.  We understand work with our clients to develop the most cost effective approach to handle each case successfully in the most efficient and effective manner. We regularly keep our clients informed throughout the litigation process.  Your attorney is your business advisor and should provide you with clear and timely answers to your questions.
