|Mission||BUSINESS ∞ REAL ESTATE ∞ PROPERTY TAX|
My passion is to help people understand the complexities of the law, whether you are selling your home, starting a business, resolving a dispute or dealing with the injury or death of a loved one. I want to be your voice and fight on your behalf. I have tried cases in court and argued dozens of trials representing business owners, a bank, landlords, and individuals.
When Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley asked me to join his team, I was honored. My role allowed me the pleasure of regularly working with the United States Secret Service, the White House and the State Department, as well as diplomats representing over 80 countries. I represented Mayor Daley and the City of Chicago on over 100 occasions for meetings, events and receptions with Presidents, Prime Ministers, Ambassadors, Kings, Queens, Mayors, and many other international diplomats and business leaders.
Spending 10 years in government taught me the important role it has in our lives. For the State of Illinois, I managed $50,000,000 in surplus real estate, met with property owners, inspected leased facilities, and reviewed and negotiated new leases.
As General Counsel at a prominent non-profit organization I monitored a $25,000,000 construction project, managed a $1,500,000 government grant, and assisted members with claims, payment collection and business development. In addition to advising the Executive Director on legal matters, I also met with elected officials from the city, county, state and federal government.
Prior to law school, I worked for 6 years at an accounting firm where I prepared financial statements and tax returns for over 125 businesses and individuals, and performed financial statement audits. In addition, I regularly communicated with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on behalf of clients.
I am proud to be a lifelong Chicagoan, completing elementary school, high school, college and law school in the City of Chicago, including an accounting degree from Roosevelt University and a law
