As a generalist within a highly specialized firm, Michael L. McDermott’s practice covers four broad areas: real estate, corporate and partnership transactions, estate planning and family law. Known for taking a personal interest in client matters, Mike’s often the “go-to” lawyer for his partners’ families. He joined the firm after serving as the Administrative Assistant to the Public Administrator of Cook County and became a partner in 1974.
"The ability to interact with my partners without controversies makes life delightful for me. We practice law as gentlemen and gentlewomen."
