Our Story

Lavelle StaffIn 1989, Kerry Lavelle followed in the steps of many attorneys before him as he hung out the proverbial shingle and launched Lavelle Legal Services. From that single attorney practice, our firm has grown exponentially, evolving into today’s Lavelle Law, Ltd. While our original emphasis on matters of tax law is still prevalent in much of our work today, we have since introduced multiple key Practice Groups to serve a more diverse client base. Fortunately, that growth has also allowed us to provide more comprehensive services, yet we are proud to say that we still serve many of those original clients that put their trust in us over two decades ago.

As your business and personal needs change, your legal needs change with them. That is why our approach has always been to create a plan that is right for your immediate needs, then work with you over time to make sure that your home, family, business, or estate are always protected and secure.

Over the years, the needs of our firm changed as well. In June 2003, we relocated our main office to Palatine where it has twice expanded its footprint to accommodate additional staff and attorneys. It is from that location that we have launched a variety of community service initiatives that have helped enhance our reputation throughout the Chicago area. As we look to the future, we anticipate measured and thoughtful growth consistent with our past, and we remain committed to serving each new client as if it is our first.

If you are among those initial clients from several decades ago, or have joined us recently, we sincerely appreciate your business, and we hope that you will find information here that may allow us to serve you in new ways. If our name is new to you, we welcome the opportunity to meet you, and explore ways in which we can share our knowledge, experience, and commitment to provide exceptional legal services.
