Estate Planning

Since no one can predict exactly what the future may hold, it’s important to have an estate plan that communicates your desires, should death or disability prevent you from expressing your wishes.

Business Law

Many of our clients own and run businesses or are interested in starting one from the ground up.

Local Government

As part of our foundation, we have placed a premium on representing companies and organizations with local government matters as it relates to municipal law, library law, and sanitary districts. Our decades of experience in municipal law and local government matters date back to the day our law firm opened more than 50 years ago.


In trial court, we are experienced litigators who have represented individuals and businesses with successful trials and settlements resulting in millions of dollars in compensation. We handle many areas related to litigation including appeals, commercial litigation, construction litigation and general litigation.

Banking Law

Our Wheaton attorneys understand that circumstances may change, causing legal problems to affect your business and personal life. We are adept with helping our clients to deal with collections, foreclosures, and loan negotiation and documentation matters.  In addition, we have represented many banks since the founding of the firm with loan documentations, collections, foreclosures and related matters.
