I was always taught that one thing no one could ever take away from me is my name. My dad would tell me that a lot while he and his partners grew his law firm. When I began my career I took it that mantra seriously. I have spent the last 32 years in the business being collaborative, professional, reasonable, and passionate. Most of all I honor what I saw and take this business, and the business of being a trusted adviser very seriously. I get great joy putting people together to make deals and while doing so I make a living at it. To me when everyone wins it is a good day. I believe that if we communicate well with others we are able to resolve many situations. I make that a part of my practice as well. The ability to communicate provide trust to my customers/clients/ and honor my word and integrity is key to the success in the industry and no one can take my name away from me in this industry.
Outside of the office I am proud to be a dad first and foremost. I am so blessed as parents are with two great kids and very proud of them. I take pride and love being a dad and being with them and as a family. One of my most favorite places or hobby in the winter is attending Chicago Blackhawk games at the United Center. It is a time and place where I can “escape” and be entertained for a couple of hours. I love to take people that have never been or had an opportunity to sit in seats where my seat is located. I am now a 32 year season ticket holder with the Chicago Blackhawks.
