Bazos, Freeman, Schuster & Braithwaite, LLC.: Helping You Grow

One of the elements that make our business attorneys stand out is their dedication to your organization. In addition to providing deal-specific legal services relating to specific projects, we offer general consultation and strategic planning services to help foster growth, manage risk and avoid litigation, all to help our clients’ businesses prosper.

Helping You Thrive

With its office situated in Chicago’s northwest suburbs (where overhead is lower than in major metropolitan centers), Bazos, Freeman, Schuster & Braithwaite, LLC., is able to provide its clients with high-quality business and transactional legal services at prices which are significantly (and often dramatically) lower than the fees normally charged by “downtown” law firms.  Clients also benefit from easy access to the Firm and its attorneys, and can thereby avoid the inefficiencies and inconveniences involved with a commute to Chicago.

The Territory We Cover

While our office is located in Elgin (Kane County), Illinois, our client base and their needs are widespread.  As such, our attorneys regularly practice throughout Northern Illinois, including the counties of Kane, McHenry, Cook, DuPage and DeKalb Counties.

Fees: Our Measure of Success

The Firm understands that its success depends on the establishment of lasting quality relationships with its clients built on trust, mutual respect and measurable results. We define success as achieving for each client the intended legal result in the most timely and cost-effective manner possible, while at the same time limiting the scope of our services (and the resulting legal fees) to no more than what is reasonably required to achieve that result.
