In addition to being an attorney, I am also a certified

basis work with clients.

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.
