Trusted Legal Guidance For Real Estate Matters

Major family transitions — such as marriage, the birth of a child and even divorce — are often closely followed by the purchase or sale of a property. Real estate conveyances are complex legal transactions in which the advice of an experienced attorney can play an important role, from the initial listing to the close to the distribution of equity and the tax ramifications.

We have nearly six decades of legal experience, and frequently assist clients with their real estate purchases and sales or the leasing of their property.

Carefully Advising Clients On The Purchase And Sale Of Property

Real estate purchase and sale contracts are binding legal agreements that should ideally be reviewed with the assistance of a lawyer. We are highly familiar with the real estate conveyance process in Illinois and have helped many clients buy and sell homes.

Given the major problems in the residential real estate market that have come to light in recent years, the assistance of an experienced attorney has never been more important.

We are particularly experienced at addressing real estate issues that arise in conjunction with family law matters, including the sale, purchase and transfer of real estate under the terms of divorce judgments, and the purchase and sale of property by domestic partners and non-married cohabitants.
