Your Business Lawyer in Evanston, Il

My law firm helps small business owners with all their legal questions and problems.

When you open a new enterprise, I can advise you on which type of business entity – such as sole proprietorship, LLC, or S-corporation – makes sense for you. I also make sure you form your business entity appropriately.

I help small business owners avoid common legal pitfalls. Using effective contracts, establishing employee handbooks and policies, protecting trademarks and other intellectual property, and complying with government licensing requirements all significantly reduce the chances you will experience an expensive legal problem.

Even the most careful planning does not avoid all litigation, however. A dispute can often be resolved without an expensive or protracted law suit. When it can’t, I will take the issue to court and fight tirelessly on your behalf.

Small business owners sometimes need to initiate litigation, too, for problems as straight-forward as debt collection or as complex as securities fraud or trademark violations.

With 12 years of experience in business law, and numerous full jury trials under my belt, I will be an effective advocate for you as defendant and as plaintiff.

I can also assist you with changes to ownership and organization of your business, as well as its sale or dissolution.

To discuss the legal needs of your business with me, please call 847-475-1700. My office is located at 708 Church Street, Suite 235 in downtown Evanston. You may also email me at
