Kane on Kane:
Moving to Logan Square, Chicago in the Fall of 2008 was one of the most formative decisions of my life. My heart was instantly captured by the neighborhood’s beautiful boulevards and striking architecture. I knew then that, whatever I would make of myself, I would make it here. Upon being licensed to practice law in 2014, it was my honor to make good on that promise and found my practice dedicated to serving the community I loved with affordable high-quality legal representation.
I genuinely consider the practice of law to be my calling in life and have dedicated myself to this passion completely. If you need a trustworthy, hardworking, and tenacious attorney, I’d love to speak with you for a free consultation. Even if my firm can’t help you, I can almost certainly direct you to the lawyer who can.
I am a perennial “man about town” in Logan Square and am also involved in several forms of local political, civic, and legal activism. If you ever see me out and about, please say hi! I have plenty of stories and recommendations to share. In my personal time, I enjoy playing board / card games, studying Anglo-American history, composing music, weightlifting, and checking out new taquerias.
