A close-knit group of attorneys practice in the Chicago office. Our core values, clear vision, and comprehensive strategic plan form a solid foundation on which our law firm bases key decisions — not only in the Chicago office, but firmwide. Our personnel, both lawyers and staff, are regarded as our greatest asset and they are continually empowered, enriched and challenged in a democratic work environment where education and change are valued and embraced. In addition, we have a culture that encourages open communication and respect among colleagues, which fosters a great deal of pride within our organization.
