Janice Berman

  • Sole Practitioner


Niles, IL





At the Law Offices of Janice L. Berman, we believe in the old-fashioned ideas of returning our clients' phone calls and in being available to help them when they have questions or concerns. We also happen to think that the meter shouldn't start running every time your attorney picks up the phone.

Our law office is located in a former storefront and provides our clients with not just a comfortable and inviting environment in which to meet with their attorney, but also with the ease of accessibility that the 42nd Floor of the John Hancock Building just can't.

Our practice is focused on providing high legal services to individuals and families in Chicago and throughout the suburbs and to helping them to find real life solutions to problems in these areas.

We start working to find those solutions by providing honest evaluations.

This approach works.

Realistic expectations and goals are often followed by real solutions and real solutions produce satisfied clients. The majority of our business is built on referrals of clients who have been pleased by our approach and the results that we provide.
