Suspended License Reinstatement

Stop looking over your shoulder in fear every time you drive your car.


Bankruptcy is a way to get a fresh start in life, keep your possessions, and avoid hassling creditors.

Filing for bankruptcy no longer holds the stigma once associated with this legal mechanism for handling your debt. If you are buried by debt and need relief, or you simply need to structure a plan to pay off your debts, Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy might be an option for you.

Landlord/Tenant Law

The laws are quite clear on the duties of the landlord and the duties of the tenant.

Although the State of Illinois follows fairly standard procedures for the adjudication of landlord-tenant disputes, the City of Chicago has a completely different set of rules. Whether you are seeking to evict a tenant or are facing eviction yourself, you need to know what is required of you to achieve the most desirable outcome in court.
