Raymond Barbosa

I have a law and graduate law degree (Taxation) from New York University School of Law, an M.B.A. (finance) from New York University Stern School of Business, and a B.S. degree (accounting) from Fordham University. I am admitted to practice in New York and in Illinois. I am also admitted to practice before the U.S. Tax Court, and in the Federal District Courts: Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, and the Northern District of Illinois.

I am a member of the Hispanic Bar Association, the Puerto Rican Bar Association, the Chicago Bar Association, the Cook County Bar Association, and the American Bar Association. I am also a member of the Illinois CPA Society and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

PROFESSIONAL PHILOSOPHY. I have been practicing law for over 20 years. My approach to practicing law is to be innovative, to think outside of the box, in order to fulfill my clients' needs. I also believe in providing efficient and thorough counsel.

In addition to being an attorney, I am also a certified public accountant (CPA) in the state of Maryland and a real estate broker in the state of Illinois. I also speak fluent Spanish and have a working knowledge of Italian.

I decided to start my own practice, after twenty years of experience at two Fortune 500 companies, because I wanted to branch out into different areas of law and to do more one-on-one basis work with clients.

CIVIC INVOLVEMENT. Being an attorney is only part of who I am. I am also dedicated to my community. For this reason, I am on the board of Streetwise (www.streetwise.org), an organization dedicated to empowering the homeless to becoming self-sufficient and productive members of society.

I am also an active member of the Chicago Bar Association. Specifically, I am Chair of Chicago Bar Association's Foreign and International Law Committee and have previously also been the Vice-Chair for this Committee.

PERSONAL PHILOSOPHY. And I believe in encouraging the next generation to strive for higher and higher goals and to better themselves. This is why I have been a professor at Governors' State University, teaching both undergraduate and graduate students tax and corporate law. I have also taught taxation at IIT Chicago Kent College of Law.

I have two sons: Evan, who attends and plays football for Brown University in Providence, R.I.; and Grant who attends and plays basketball for Illinois Math and Science Academy in Aurora, Illinois. For fun, I dance Argentine Tango and Salsa; I golf; and I like to travel.
