“Typically, tax valuation is a data-driven process.
Having an advocate re-focuses the process on the
human element.”

Patricia Quinn Ford

Patricia Quinn Ford works with clients on state and local taxation matters related to high-end residential and commercial and industrial property tax appeals in Cook County and its surrounding collar counties. She served as outside counsel for the City of Chicago’s Tax Reactivation Program, a citywide program designed to put chronically tax delinquent properties back on the tax rolls and productive status. In that capacity, Patricia worked closely with the Deputy Commissioner of the Department of Planning and Development and the Mayor’s Office in the execution of clearing title for thousands of properties.

Prior to joining O’Keefe, Lyons & Hynes, Patricia was an attorney focusing on insurance defense, commercial and appellate matters. Earlier in her career, she served a judicial clerkship for Justice Robert J. Downing, then Presiding Judge of the Appellate Court (First District), where she reviewed briefs and court records, researched and drafted memoranda for the preparation of opinions and was a law clerk for Philip H. Corboy and Associates.

“Every client is important. We strive to treat each client as if the success of the firm depends upon that client’s satisfaction.”
