Protect your property and yourself.

Landlord-tenant law can be particularly complicated, due in part to the contentious Illinois Residential Landlord and Tenant Ordinance, a regulation which gives powerful rights to tenants.

In fact, if tenants are victorious in disputes with landlords, landlords may be required to pay the tenants’ legal fees. Thus if a landlord is lacking competent legal representation, seemingly simple evictions can wind up costing them thousands of dollars.
