Chicago Tenants’ Rights Lawyer
Why should I consult a lawyer?
Tenants (and more commonly landlords) express a strong desire to prosecute or defend their own cases in an effort to avoid paying a lawyer. While it’s true that the services of a lawyer are never cheap for a landlord, the victorious tenant is often entitled to reimbursement from his landlord. Moreover, Bad landlords will almost always ignore demands by their tenants, even if the tenant cites the applicable law. Some landlords will even retaliate against a tenant when he makes a demand. Landlords take demands by lawyers more seriously.

“My Landlord Tried To Take Advantage of Me, But My Attorney Empowered Me.”
I had never used an attorney for anything before this experience. I had always been wary of lawyers, but unfortunately, I was faced with a situation in which I thought contacting an attorney would be my best option. From the very first time we talked, Andy really made me feel at ease. He listened to what I had to say, and asked me what result I wanted before giving me his take and advice. At the beginning of this experience, honestly, I was intimidated and afraid that I would end up having to pay a lot of money for an unjust reason. But as Andy worked on my case with me, I began to feel empowered, and at the end of it all, I ended up asking for what I was originally too afraid to ask for, and getting it. Andy made me aware of many things in the law that I never saw (despite the hours of research I did on my own previously). Andy is very responsive; I never had to wait very long for a response, no matter what time it was. He is very knowledgeable about landlord/tenant law, and he never had a problem explaining things that I didn't understand. I would not hesitate to retain Andy's services again, or to recommend his services to anyone I know.
