Let us help you achieve your goals!
What we believe sets our firm apart is the level of dedication and care we bring to every legal matter we handle. We seek efficient, practical solutions, and have the capabilities and work ethic necessary to achieve great results for our valued clients. We are always striving to achieve the best overall results, and are always conscious of desired outcomes, costs, and all tangible and intangible considerations.
If you need focused dedication to your legal matters, we would greatly appreciate the opportunity to be of service. We particularly focus on environmental law and IEPA matters.
We strive to be your most cost effective option for the provision of sophisticated legal services. Many of the types of matters which we handle, particularly in the regulatory and environmental law areas, are typically only handled by very large law firms, at very high rates. We have the flexibility and creativity to fashion a fee structure which works fairly for you, as a sophisticated consumer of legal services. If you have a complex legal problem in the State of Illinois, we would like to discuss with you how we can handle your matter at incredibly reasonable rates, and/or through creative fee arrangements.
