Areas of Practice

In addition to bankruptcy, our offices also handle various other areas of law. These include:

Real Estate

• Loan Modification

• Workout Agreements

• Forbearance Agreements

• Short Sale

• Deed-In-Lieu of Foreclosure

Many homeowners are having trouble paying their mortgage and may be facing foreclosure.  Our offices will work directly with your lender to workout a solution that fits your budget and needs.

Also, it has been estimated that as many as 10% of all homes are "underwater" (worth less than what’s owed).  In this situation, many people are choosing "strategic default" and our offices are prepared to help you get away from this burdensome debt.

I also have a blog where I detail many areas of Chicago Foreclosure and Bankruptcy Law.

• Residential Real Estate Closings

We offer very competitive flat fee rates on real estate closings. 

We personally travel to the closing location on the date set.

Our offices will:

1.  Review and, when possible, negotiate the real estate purchase contract.

2.  Schedule the time and location of the closing and calculate the amount of money you will need to close.

3.  Explain the significance of the documents given to you at closing.

4.  Verify all closing expenses and documentation for accuracy.

5.  Examine the condition of title prior to closing and oversee the removal of all title objections to be removed at closing in order that you obtain marketable title to the property.

6.  Obtain the owner’s title insurance policy and recorded original deed, both of which will be forwarded to you for your records after closing.
