Mike Durlacher's services were immensely appreciated for our real estate purchase. My wife and I were dealing with a really difficult seller and their attorney. We really wanted a new home that we could grow a family in but needed some concessions from the buyer before we closed. While we worried we might lose the offer, Mike was steady, empathetic and put our needs first. Mike put together a proposal that everyone was happy with. Thanks to Mike, we have our home we always wanted. He put our needs first before his own which made the difference. If you're considering real estate and need someone who will work tirelessly on your behalf, I'd strongly recommend Mike Durlacher.

As a commercial real estate broker, I am often asked to provide attorney recommendations.  Michael is knowledgeable, experienced and can quickly transverse the challenges that arise with many deals.  Michael has consistently provided exceptional services and has been able to assist the client over the finish line every time.  

Recently, on a land purchase for a site to be developed as a recreational facility, Michael's effort were invaluable in assisting the client with financing, construction management and zoning approval with the Village.  

I look forward to our next deal together.

Michael Durlacher has been my go to attorney for everything for the last 15+ years.  Mike has handled multiple real-estate contracts and many closings for myself and my business.   Mike has helped me with setting up many LLC's and all aspects of starting my many businesses.   It has been a pleasure working with Mike all these years and I always feel like I have someone in my corner to protect me and keep me and my business safe and issue free.  Over the years when I needed help outside of his specialties he has referred me to other great attorneys and consulted and helped me understand everything, even when he was not directly involved.   Michael Durlacher should be your first call for all your legal needs.

Michael played an integral role in the land acquisition and development of a 240 unit condo development on 17 acres in the northwest suburbs.  He was able to guide our company through both the zoning and TIF processes with the Village while also establishing the association that would later be turned over to future residents of the condominiums.  His knowledge and command over these complex proceedings allowed us to focus on the construction and sellout of our buildings.
