We offer long-term legal guidance according to your personal needs and challenges, and we are passionate about helping clients in the South Suburbs and the South Side of Chicago achieve their real estate property goals and celebrate when they reach them.

Buying or selling a home can be a challenge for a number of reasons. You may be a first-time buyer trying to figure out how to navigate the process, or you may be struggling to overcome obstacles like low credit scores or employment gaps. With our 10 years of legal experience, we will do everything we can to make the process more manageable and understandable for you.

Practice Areas

In addition to commercial and residential closings, we also provide foreclosure defense for homeowners struggling to make mortgage payments, and we offer legal counsel and representation for landlords, HOAs, and condominium associations in the drafting and review of documents and in cases involving evictions of tenants or unit owners.

Real Estate

Real estate purchases are major transactions; for many people the largest financial transaction they will make in their lives. We help buyers and sellers understand their legal rights and the important choices they will face throughout the process so that they feel confident in making a well-informed decision. We can also provide ongoing legal representation and litigation after the closing to ensure that your property and your monetary interests are protected well into the future.

Do I Need an Attorney for Buying and Selling a Home?

In Illinois, you can choose to proceed throughout your home closing without an attorney on your side, but if you are a first-time buyer or are unsure about the closing process, an experienced real estate lawyer can be a valuable ally. We can help you review and negotiate the terms of the purchase agreement to ensure your interests are protected whether you are the buyer or the seller and help you avoid agreeing to something that will cost you significantly later on.

It's Closing Day, Baby!

Residential Closings

Residential ClosingsFor buyers and sellers alike, a residential closing involves several important steps. We can guide you through each of them, including negotiation of your purchase agreement, arrangement of a home inspection and damage repairs, review of mortgage agreements and title searches, and preparation of closing documents. If your credit score or income is an issue, we can help you work with multiple lenders to find one that works for you. We will also be there on Closing Day to ensure it goes according to plan and to celebrate a successful result.

Commercial Closings

Commercial ClosingsCommercial real estate owners invest significant resources in multi-unit apartment buildings and other properties with the expectation of earning income from them. We can help you solidify your investment as we guide you through the process of your commercial closing, including contract negotiation, signing authority for legal entities, escrow, review of zoning and environmental regulations, transfer of ownership, and assumption of leases. We also help sellers negotiate a fair transaction and respond to any buyer inquiries about the property.
