With client satisfaction as the prime objective, legendary Illinois attorneys Thomas S. Chuhak and Joseph A. Tecson—along with nine other attorneys and their legal assistants—opened the doors to Chuhak & Tecson, P.C., in 1987. Their original dream of providing exceptional, affordable legal service and responsible community leadership has never wavered; neither has the parallel goal of offering attorneys and staff a balanced life of integrity, both inside and outside the office. Today, we have grown into a team of 72 attorneys and more than 70 professional and support staff members, all dedicated to meeting our clients’ needs in a highly responsive manner. We position ourselves right beside our clients to contribute the solid legal counsel that can help make their personal and business goals a reality.
Many of our original attorneys and staff remain with the firm today—a testimony to our values and culture. We continue to engage those values eagerly with enthusiasm, dedication and community spirit.Show more +
