Jeffrey A. Fagan

Jeff graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a degree in Arts, Entertainment, and Media Management.  He earned his law degree from The John Marshall Law School in Chicago Illinois.  

Jeff left college before completing his undergraduate degree, spending 11 years in the restaurant business, working his way from bar back to General Manager and becoming the youngest General Manager in that restaurant company's history.  Jeff specialized in turning around restaurants with problems, making them run more efficiently, improving the customer experience, training staffs to excellence, and earning the ownership record profits.

Jeff's life changed when he was selected to serve on a Special Grand Jury for 30 days, an experience that few people have enjoyed.  His experience on the Special Grand Jury inspired him to return to college to complete his undergraduate degree with an eye towards attending law school.  Jeff turned down a job offer to become a district manager for a major coffee company and oversee their growth throughout the Midwest to return to school.  After graduating from Columbia, Jeff spent three years working for a Fortune 500 technology company where he was a founding member of their Healthcare division.  Upon gaining acceptance to law school, Jeff left his lucrative career in sales to pursue his passion for the law.  While attending law school, Jeff won two CALI “Excellence for the Future” awards for earning the top grade in Federal Criminal Law and Real Estate Transactions.

Since beginning his practice, Jeff has earned several awards.  From 2018 to 2021, Jeff was recognized as an Emerging Lawyer by Leading Lawyers.  This award is given to attorneys who have been recognized by their Leading Lawyers peers as being among the State's top lawyers aged 40 or younger, although no age limit applies for attorneys if the lawyer has practiced for 10 years or less.  In 2022, Jeff was recognized as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers.  Rising Star's must be nominated by existing Super Lawyers first.  Attorneys that are Super Lawyers include the top 5% of the best lawyers in the state as recognized by their peers.  Rising Star nominees are then evaluated by existing Super Lawyers award holders and only 2.5% of lawyers in the State are ever given this award.  Neither Leading Lawyers nor Super Lawyers allow attorneys to buy their way into an award.  These are earned honors, and Jeff is extremely proud to have earned this recognition from his peers and mentors. 

Jeff is devoted to serving his client's needs.  He brings his years of real-world experience to the firm and believes in treating the client the way he would want to be treated.
