Lawyers committed to the success of local


Our law firm represents school districts, charter schools, colleges and universities, municipalities, park districts and other local governments throughout Illinois.  We know this client base well, know its particular needs and problems, and understand the special, often highly-charged environment in which it operates. We are committed to the success of local government entities. Our clients tell us our high level of commitment is exceptional... we hope you'll consider finding out for yourself.

With 35 attorneys in three state-of-the-art offices in Arlington Heights, Peoria and O'Fallon, we are large enough to meet any or all of our clients' legal needs, yet not so large that any client's need is ever overlooked.  Contact us today!
