May 1, 2009, marks ten years since Lakelaw opened its doors. We started in a tiny one room office in Waukegan. Now, we have served thousands of clients in Illinois and Wisconsin with five offices from Chicago to Waukegan and from Kenosha to La Crosse.
We are proud of our people and the high quality of representation we have provided to our clients and communities. We also take pride in our clients – recognizing that as lawyers, we are only as good as our clients allow us to be. Our clients entrust their lives and futures in us. We take great pleasure in helping people resolve their financial difficulties and putting them on the road to success for the rest of their lives.
Today, Lakelaw is at the forefront of mortgage foreclosure defense. We have offered seminars for attorneys in Wisconsin and Illinois. Now, we are preparing a new seminar in our hometown – Waukegan – for attorneys in Lake County, under the auspices of the Lake County Bar Association. This program will soon lead to a help desk at the Circuit Court for the Nineteenth Judicial Circuit in Lake County Illinois.
Lakelaw also is at the forefront of consumer bankruptcy. We publish in blogs and journals. We speak at conferences nationwide. We innovate. We seek to be at the cutting edge of our practice. And we share our best practices with others.
We at Lakelaw look forward to serving our clients in Illinois and Wisconsin for many years to come and we thank our clients, referral sources and friends for all of their suppport during the past ten years.
