When people consider hiring our firm one of the most important considerations is the cost of our services. Though all legal matters are different, we try to be as transparent as possible when it comes to our fees.
The following are the types of cases we accept and how we charge for each
|Initial Consult||Full Representation||DIY Product|
|Tenants in foreclosed properties||Free||Contingency*|
*A contingency fee means we are paid from the money we recover from the other party.
Chicago Tenants’ Rights
We offer legal services in a very limited range of tenants rights cases. Though there is a huge need for broader representation, we are unable to take cases that do not fall into one of the following areas:
- Security deposit claims
- Keep Chicago Renting claims (tenants in foreclosed properties)
Though the types of cases we handle are limited, we have a large referral network. Click here to request a referral.
Personal injury claims are always handled on contingency. This means that we are paid from recovery and if there is no recovery, there is no fee. The fee for a personal injury claim is almost always 1/3 of the gross recovery. Consultations for personal injury matters are free.
Pro Bono/Free Representation
We are a for-profit law firm and work to support our families and pay our bills. Unfortunately, we do not offer free representation though our firm. If you are unable to pay and your case does not fall under one of the categories where we are paid from recovery, consider contacting one of the legal aid organizations below (Cook County only):
Legal Aid Society
Legal Assistance Foundation
Metropolitan Tenants Organization
Excellent and professional lawyer
I was struck by two cars while standing on a sidewalk. This was a horrible and traumatic experience. Luckily, I was represented in my civil case by Mr. Brabender. He was compassionate, persistent, and thorough. He did a wonderful job of keeping me informed, staying on top of my case, explaining all of the details of the case to me, providing feedback any time I needed it (he was always available for my questions or concerns), and pushing the case forward so that it could close in a timely manner. I have recommended Mr. Brabender (we call him Andy because he is so friendly!) to my friends and I would use him again. He is intelligent and has a wealth of skills; however, he is also down-to-earth and sympathetic to a client's feelings, specifically he understands how traumatic these events are to the client. My case was closed in a timely manner and successfully. I truly believe this occurred because Andy worked so diligently on my case. I walked away (literally and figuratively!) from my case with a positive experience and impression of lawyers.
