Our residential appeal team utilizes a proprietary program which obtains assessment information County-wide to determine if your residential assessment is uniform and equitable.  In addition, our team will research the Assessor’s market value placed on your home.  If it is not, our team will recommend market value evidence to introduce into an appeal.


Commercial property assessments are on the rise while values continue to be volatile.  We work with property owners and appraisers to ensure that the Assessor’s proposed market value of your commercial property is in line with current market conditions.  We have experience successfully representing owners of all types of commercials properties (i.e. office, retail, restaurant, multi-tenant, owner occupied, etc).


Industrial properties vary substantially from property to property.  Our attorneys and analysts have a distinctive understanding of what characteristics are vital to the market value of an industrial building.  With that understanding, we are well prepared to challenge an assessment of an industrial property that is over assessed.

Our Attorney’s and Analysts have the experience which enables us to advocate for our clients through the appeal process, from consultation to all levels of implementation.

We can navigate and lead our clients through the appeal process with the County taxing officials including the Assessor, Board of Review, Circuit Court and Illinois Property Tax Appeal Board.
