I am a unique Illinois lawyer who represents individuals, corporations and small business owners. I have two office locations to better serve you--one in downtown Chicago and one just outside Peoria.  If you have been seriously injured, physically or monetarily I am here to help you. I handle sexual harassment cases as well as employment law cases, throughout the state of Illinois.  I help businesses put agreements in place and defend companies against employment related claims, including sexual harassment and discrimination issues.  I can help you navigate through the complex legal system. My priority is client satisfaction.  Unlike most attorneys I am available seven days a week and can work around your schedule.  I utilize technology to the fullest and leverage that knowledge to your advantage. 

I also help students at schools and universities who have been subjected to sexual harassment or unjustly accused of sexual harassment.  I have successfully pursued sexual harassment complaints against professors and instructors at various universities in Illinois.

I am a former Green Beret with the 10th Special Forces Group, 1st Special Operations Command and I am familiar with the needs of servicemen and servicewomen.

I will provide you with personal attention and access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I will rapidly move your case along and recognize that you may want to potentially resolve your case quickly. I also have the resources and experience to take your case to trial if necessary.

Call me now at 312-505-5038, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week or contact me online for a free consultation.*
