While we sometimes take on a tenant security deposit recovery matter here and there, our office does NOT represent tenants in eviction cases. There are MANY excellent attorneys in the City of Chicago who do represent tenants and suggest tenants contact one of them for assistance!
If tenants call our office, we will not be able to assist. To put it politely, please do not call us. We won’t be able to help. Despite having made this admonition, many tenants still call us. When they are informed that “we don’t represent tenants”, they tell us “I don’t want representation, I just have a few questions”. Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to be the “tenant’s free legal-help-line”. We won’t be able to talk to you and we won’t be able to give you any name or number of a tenant’s rights attorney. However, I can assure you that there are lots of good ones out there. Good luck!
