Summary

I am a dedicated and skilled attorney that represents clients in Insurance claims/bad faith litigation, Personal Injury, Real Estate, and Commercial Litigation. I have represented individuals in a wide range of civil disputes and have a proven track record of success. I am committed to obtaining the results sought by my clients at all times.

I attended college at the University of Louisville where I actively volunteered for organizations assisting with events through out the Louisville community. I then attended law school in Miami, Florida where I was involved in many facets of the community in an array of Pro Bono projects.

I have been named a 2017, 2018, and 2019 Illinois Rising Star Attorney list by Super Lawyers for my litigation work. I am a proud member of the Chicago Bar Association, the Illinois State Bar Association, and the American Bar Association.

Legal Answers
19 Questions Answered

Q. I signed a contract for condo in PR w/ earnest $ in Feb 2020 BEFORE Covid. Can I cancel w/o penalty (lost wages)
A: It depends on many facts that you have not provided in your question. Also, an attorney needs to review your contract before advising you accurately on whether or not you can terminate the contract. I would highly advise you to immediately contact an attorney to discuss your options as the longer you wait the less likely you have grounds to back out of the contract.
Q. HOA Building (balcony) maintenance
A: It depends on the setup of the balcony, as well as the exact language used in your condo decelerations and bylaws. But if it is a shared common balcony where there is essentially only one or two sets of walk up stairs for all unit owners and an open walkway on each level accessible to all units - without a specific area blocked off or designated just for your condo's use - then it would be considered a common element. If you have a specific area designated on the balcony just for your unit then it is likely a limited common element unless otherwise defined in your HOA decs and bylaws. “Limited Common Elements” are defined by the Act to mean a portion of the common elements so designated in the declaration as being reserved for the use of a certain unit or units to the exclusion of other units.." Ultimately, you are going to be paying for the repairs one way or another. Either the HOA will use your monthly HOA fees/reserve funds (although this will be cheaper) to pay for the repairs or by having to pay out of pocket for all repairs. Review your HOA decs and bylaws and consult an attorney if you have further questions. Stay safe and healthy, I wish you the best.
Q. When do I send out my demand letter?
A: I am sorry to hear about your injury and hope you are feeling better. That said, I would strongly discourage you from trying to handle this yourself. Insurance companies do not take unrepresented individuals seriously. You should stop everything you are doing, do not contact the relevant parties or the adjusters, nor make any other statements about the matter until you are represented or at the very least speak with an attorney directly. Also, I recommend acting quickly, as you have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit should it be necessary to get you the full compensation you deserve. Many of us offer free consultations, so it will not cost you anything out of pocket to organize all of the relevant documentation, and consult with an experienced attorney. After a review of the details, we can advise as to the best course of action moving forward.
