Christian Blume

BIO:
I went to law school to help small businesses and individuals.  I am a  graduate of the United States Air Force Academy, where I majored in Economics.  Prior to law school I was a small business owner and operator.  As a small business owner, I came to appreciate the many legal struggles and issues start-ups and small businesses face.  

 

During law school I clerked for two-judges in the Circuit Court of Cook County and a Justice at the 1st District Illinois Appellate Court.  Additionally, I worked for a small  litigation defense firm.  I graduated cum laude from The John Marshall Law School and served as Managing Editor of The John Marshall Law Review.

 

Prior to establishing my private practice, I worked as an Assistant Corporation Counsel for the City of Chicago Department of Law.  I represented the City of Chicago and was responsible for numerous cases, focused on the prosecution of municipal code violations.      

I am a real estate investor, landlord and homeowner. 

I strive to offer a flexible fee structure, doing fixed fees for certain tasks and offering competitive rates for hourly work and contingency work.    

I live in the Lincoln Square community with my wife, and two-small children, and enjoy travel, yoga, reading and spending time with my family.
