Welcome to AMC Legal
AMC Legal strives to bring affordable, quality legal services to its clients. I listen to my clients’ needs and concerns, answer their questions and create a unique plan for their particular circumstances. Feel free to give me a call if you have any questions or if you would like to schedule a free consultation.
Client Service. I make it a priority to get to know my clients on a personal level so that I can better represent them. I make sure I understand, not only what they are asking for, but what they really need to achieve their goals. I make it a priority to answer my phone directly or to return phone calls as soon as possible. You will speak with me directly for all your legal needs. Your file won't be handled by a paralegal or handed off to someone else in the firm.
Affordable. I offer a free consultation for any matter as well as a free review of your current estate plan. A majority of my fees are flat fees. This means I quote you a price up front and that’s what you pay. I only charge hourly for items such as negotiating a contract or lease and buying or selling a business, or other items that are difficult to judge the time that will be spent. When I do charge hourly it’s a very fair rate and you are only charged for the time I am working on your project.
Understandable. I try to break things down to make the law much easier to understand. I don’t speak in legalese but discuss your needs with you and explain your options and best choices.
Experienced. I am a licensed attorney in Illinois. I have several years of experience both with an international law firm and on my own. I have been through the process of starting my own business and have gained a wealth of experience to pass on to my business clients. I have also personally dealt with aging family members and going through the estate planning process with them. I have a great deal of experience in each of my practice areas having helped hundreds of small and mid-sized businesses in numerous industries.
Quality. I create custom documents and plans to meet the individual and unique needs of each client. Often times it is not the terms of a contract or estate plan that can cause problems later on, but the other terms that are put in by attorneys that often wind up being litigated. I make sure these items are not over looked and drafted appropriately to protect my clients.
I have 3 main focus areas for my practice: Business law, Intellectual Property (trademarks and copyrights) and Estate Planning. Each of these areas has a wide range of services that I can assist my clients with.
Business. On the Business side I can help set up a business, whether it be a C Corp, S Corp, LLC, Series LLC, Non Profit or 501c3. I can also assist sole proprietorships and partnerships as well. I do a lot of contract work, you can see my business contracts page to get an idea of the many types of contracts I’ve worked on.
Trademarks. For trademarks I can do the full comprehensive trademark search and file the application for you. You can trademark a company name, a slogan or a logo with the USPTO to give your company added protection on its brand. You can see more information on my Trademarks page.
Copyrights. For copyrights I can assist both businesses and individuals who are looking to file a copyright application. You can copyright almost any work that you create including: literature, text, photos, art, software code and more. For more information please see my Copyrights page.
Estate Planning. Estate planning encompasses a large area of topics to protect your assets and your family. This includes setting up a will, trust, health care power of attorney, property power of attorney, living will, funding a trust or making any modifications to your already existing documents to bring them up to date. For more information you can see my Estate Planning page.
