Our Story

Lavelle Staff

In 1989, attorney Kerry Lavelle launched Lavelle Legal Services. From that single attorney practice, our firm has evolved into today’s Lavelle Law, Ltd. While our original emphasis on matters of tax law is still prevalent in much of our work today, the firm has grown to include twenty attorneys with practice groups in Tax, Business Law, Commercial Real Estate, Estate Planning, Criminal Law, Health Law, Small Business, Bankruptcy, Corporate Formation, Family Law, Litigation, Grocery Law, Employment Law, Residential Real Estate, Securities and Banking Law.

As our mission statement says, if we provide exceptional legal services at fair prices we believe we will have a client for life. To that end, we are very pleased that many of the clients who placed their trust in us over two decades ago are still with us today.

We do know that 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 allowed us to pursue our mission of extending charitable works to those in need throughout our the community.

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.
