Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&ASocial Media

Bill is an Illinois and New York licensed attorney operating a general law practice in Chicago. He represent clients throughout the Chicagoland area on matters ranging from tenant evictions and judgment collections, to divorces and much more. Having grown up on the South Side of Chicago, Bill understands the value and importance of high quality service at a reasonable price. His main goal is to carry that mantra into his law practice and provide excellent and effective representation at an affordable price. By operating a virtual law office, he has been able to operate a more mobile practice and cut down on overhead costs. Those savings are passed on to his clients in the form of typically lower hourly rates and numerous flat-fee services. When he is not practicing law, Bill enjoys binge-watching tv with his amazing wife, Chelsea, and their dog, Oilver, or perfecting the fine art of slow-smoked barbecue from a condominium balcony. All clients are entitled to a free 30-minute consultation. Visit today or contact him directly to schedule yours.

Legal Answers
16 Questions Answered
Q. I need a subcontractor agreement. Do I need a business lawyer or can I just do one myself with the help of a template?
A: You are certainly within your rights to try and draft the agreement you need yourself, but I would strongly caution you to use an attorney. Online templates, even the ones that you pay for, are written in a way to apply to as many situations as possible. Using one is very risky in the event there is a dispute between you and your subcontractor.

On the other hand, using an attorney will help you craft a better contract that's more specifically-tailored to your situation and needs. It will be more protective of you in the event of a dispute and won't include language that can unnecessarily bind you to things that aren't in your interest.

Best of luck.
Q. My window was broken into and my landlord will not replace the window. Is this illegal?
A: While I wouldn't deem it illegal per se, it is generally your landlord's responsibility to make such repairs. Give your landlord notice in writing of the broken window and your need to have it fixed. Mail it via certified mail with return receipt requested. Then, if the landlord doesn't repair it within 14 days, consult with a local landlord tenant attorney who can advise you of your legal options at that point. Depending on where the apartment is, you might have the right to repair the window yourself and deduct the cost from your rent, but as I said, consult with an attorney before doing anything yourself.

Best of luck.
Q. if a credit company says closed account and the debt is written off, can they turn it over to a collection agency?
A: Generally, Yes. It sounds as though either or both of the collection agencies have purchased the debt from the company. If that is the case, then the collections agencies can seek to collect the debt from you. It is probably a good idea to consult with a local collections or consumer debt attorney to discuss the particulars of your situation and assist you in case the collections companies violate the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. A good place to start is by clicking the "Find a Lawyer" link at the top of the page.

Best of luck.
