Weisman & Weisman, P.C. is a Chicago law firm representing clients throughout Cook County and the northern suburbs in a range of civil matters. Complementing our family law practice, we also have experience handling probate administration and guardianships, real estate disputes and closings, collection actions, and personal injury claims on behalf of our clients.
For our clients who have lost a family member, friend, or associate, we provide probate administration services. The purpose of probate is to ensure that the decedent's final bills and expenses are paid, including any taxes owed, and any remaining assets are distributed to the beneficiaries named in a will, or if the decedent died "intestate" (without a will), to his or her heirs in accordance with Illinois' laws governing intestate succession. If a dispute should arise during the probate process, we have experience representing clients in probate litigation as well.
We also assist clients in obtaining guardianships of the person and the estate, which may be necessary for minors, elderly, disabled adult children, and others in need of someone to handle personal decisions, financial decisions, or both. In addition, we prepare basic wills, health and financial powers of attorney, and advance directives and living wills for our clients.
Weisman & Weisman, P.C. has significant experience representing clients in a variety of real estate matters, from representing buyers and sellers in closings to handling real property litigation. We have advocated on behalf of both landlords and tenants in leasing disputes, including cases involving evictions, forcible entry, and detainer. We have also helped clients place or remove mechanic's liens on property.
We provide both plaintiff and defense representation in cases involving collection actions, which may arise from the breach of a contractual obligation or a creditor-debtor relationship. Our attorneys also handle registrations of foreign judgments in Illinois courts for out-of-state debt collections.
In the event that you are seeking to recover monies that are due and owing to you or your business, our firm will prepare the appropriate complaint in order to obtain a judgment against the debtor. In the event that you have obtained a judgment in another state, our office will file the appropriate documents to register your foreign judgment. Once the judgment has been entered or registered, our office will immediately begin the process of enforcing your judgment.
If you or a loved one has been hurt in an accident, we have experience handling personal injury cases, which compensate injured individuals for the negligence, recklessness, or wrongful acts of others. A personal injury claim may arise from a range of incidents, including but not limited to car, truck, motorcycle, and other motor vehicle accidents, pedestrian accidents, premises liability or slip and fall accidents, dog bites, and dram shop liability for drunk driving accidents. We offer free initial consultations in personal injury matters.
As a comprehensive practice with a depth of expertise and experience, Weisman & Weisman, P.C. is able to defend or prosecute almost any type of lawsuit. If you face litigation, we can provide the legal support you need, from filing or answering a claim to providing aggressive representation at trial.
