- Foreclosure Defense
Today, many of the 125,000 pending foreclosure cases in the Chicago metropolitan area involve cases filed by major banks and/or trustees that “lack standing”. Most homeowners don’t realize that the bank trying to foreclose may have no legal right to do so. Simply put, you have a powerful legal foreclosure defense and may not even know it!
- Credit Card / Third Party Debt Collection Lawsuits
If you are sued by your credit card company, there may be some defenses that you can raise including but not limited to violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and/or lack of standing.
- Personal Injury
Personal injury lawsuits arise when people are injured by the careless or intentional acts of others. When someone is determined to be legally responsible for injuring someone else, they are liable for the injury and may be made to compensate the victim.
- Wrongful Death
Wrongful death as a legal term is a death that has been caused by the fault of another person. For example, deaths caused by drunk driving, the manufacture of a defective or dangerous product, the construction of an unsound structure or building, or failing to diagnose a fatal disease may be considered under the law as “wrongful deaths.”
- Products Liability
Products liability is an area of personal injury law that focuses on dangerous and defective products. Our attorneys represents injured victims throughout Illinois area in matters against corporations or manufacturers who have sold or manufactured unsafe products to consumers.
