Finn and Finn attorneysFINN & FINN, LTD
Counselors at Law

A question often asked is what kind of law a lawyer does, what area of the law is the focus of his or her legal practice. While Finn & Finn often handles issues about real estate, from routine closings to zoning changes and land use litigation, the primary focus of our firm is our clients. Their legal needs frequently involve more than a single area of the law and cannot be confined to only one specific category.

We would be happy to help you write a will or trust, set up a business or nonprofit, buy or sell real estate, resolve marriage and family law issues, or assist in other areas of general legal practice. We can also help you handle a commercial dispute or work your way through a painful foreclosure. However, clients also bring to us cases that require the kind of creative, outside-the-box legal approach for which our firm has become known.

For example, suppose there is a decaying building near your home or business, an eyesore, a nuisance which is dragging down the neighborhood and the value of your property. We have developed legal tools that may be able to solve this problem, often at the sole expense of the owner of the decaying building, and not you, our client.

We also have knowledge and experience in more complex areas like environmental law, animal law, and disputes between citizens and local government, from ordinance violations to major civil rights litigation. There is no fee to initially sit down with us, discuss your legal problem, and explore how we might be of assistance, and we always will do everything in our power to meet your legal needs or solve your legal problems within your budget constraints.

Our client-friendly office is located in a restored historic home near downtown Waukegan and has an adjoining parking lot for free, convenient parking. Even our front yard has been made appealing, with its native plants and rain garden earning recognition from the National Wildlife Federation and Conserve Lake County. No matter how stressful your legal issues may be, no matter the anxiety you might have about seeing a lawyer, you will feel comfortable at the office of Finn & Finn, not only with the surroundings but also with the personal concern, understanding, and attention you will receive.

Next time that a legal need or issue happens to arise in your life, we invite you to give Finn & Finn a call, set up a time to get together, and come in and talk confidentially with us about how we might be able to help. We can assure you of a pleasant, informative experience and look forward to our conversation.
