Firm Overview

Cook County Construction Law, Small Business and Real Estate Lawyer:  I am attorney Michael W. Kelly. My Chicago law firm is dedicated to upholding the best interests of my clients and pursuing positive results in all areas of my practice, including construction law, commercial and civil litigation, and real estate litigation.

My typical clients include:

General Contractors and Subcontractors  who need to negotiate a contract, protect their mechanics lien rights in Illinois, are dealing with design defects or have other issues related to construction law.

Owners and Developers  who need legal assistance from an experienced Chicago construction attorney with litigation.

Landlords who need to recover rent, evict a residential or commercial tenant, or ensure that a lease complies with local and state laws.

Small business owners  who are involved in commercial or civil litigation due to contract disputes, partnership disputes and more.

Homeowners either considering or in the process of building or renovating their homes or involved in real estate disputes.

I also offer certain legal services for flat rates, including:

  • Mechanics lien preparation, including preparation and service of 90-day notices, subcontractor and contractor claims for mechanics liens.
  • Evictions for nonpayment of rent and possession of the property.

Personal and Responsive Client Service
At larger law firms, personalized service is often an ideal, not a reality. At my law firm, however, I make it a priority to answer my clients’ questions and to take a proactive approach in updating them on the status of their cases. My clients never have to wonder what progress I am making toward their goals, because I communicate results right away.
