Real Estate

Do you need an experienced Attorney for a Real Estate matter located in Cook County or one of the surrounding counties in Illinois?

Whether your legal matter is a landlord-tenant dispute, relating to the buying or selling of real estate, a boundary dispute with a neighbor, or something else, you need an experienced local attorney who is familiar with the laws of Illinois, but also with real estate-specific rules and regulations on the county and municipal level.

 

Furthermore, in today's challenging economic times, real estate laws are changing rapidly as governmental entities attempt to help distressed homeowners, landlords and businesses.

What Does It Cost?

 

If you meet with the real estate lawyer we refer, the lawyer will collect $30 at the initial consultation (which goes towards the operating costs of our service). The lawyer may also charge a fee for their time/service, which should be discussed directly with the lawyer prior to the meeting. During or after your initial consultation, the lawyer will discuss the legal fees required to handle your matter. There is no obligation on your part or the lawyer to go beyond the first initial telephone contact or meeting.
