2. NOT LEGAL ADVICE.

The materials on this Site have been prepared by Lake County Real Estate Tax Appeal, LLC (“Firm”) for general and informational purposes only.  The information on this Site does not constitute legal advice and should not be interpreted to indicate that a certain result will occur in your specific legal situation.  Although the Firm endeavors to keep this Site current and accurate, the content on the Site may not reflect current legal developments.  Internet visitors and online readers should not act upon this information without seeking professional counsel, which the Firm can provide once it has entered into a contract with a client (“Client”).  This information is not intended to create, nor does it constitute, an attorney / client relationship until the visitor to this Site and the Firm enter into such a contract, and after the Firm has notified the Client of his or her attorney / client relationship with the Firm.  Once the Client has been notified that an attorney / client relationship exists, the Firm will begin by reviewing the assessed value of the Client’s property on multiple levels to determine if there may be a basis for an assessment reduction.  If the Firm determines that there is a basis for a reduction in the assessed value of the property, it will complete the steps necessary to prepare and submit an appeal to the Township Assessor and / or the Lake County Board of Review and, if the appeal is denied, or if it is reduced below what the Firm thinks is equitable, to the State of Illinois Property Tax Appeal Board.  A reduction in the assessed value of a Client’s property is not promised or guaranteed, and the Client should not infer that such a reduction will occur.  Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.  Please also note that the Supreme Court of Illinois does not recognize certifications of specialties in the practice of law and a certificate, award or recognition is not a requirement to practice law in Illinois.
